I think I say it every single month, but I can't believe my little Millie is one month older...time is flying by!!!  Next month she will be ONE!  I can't believe it!!  I love watching her grow and her little personality blossom, but it is still a tiny bit sad to say goodbye to the baby years!  Dan, on the other hand, is so excited for the kids to grow and "get big" so they can do fun things with him....like go hiking/camping, go to the movies, go on big rollercoasters.  There are definitely fun things about every stage in life!  Here are some pics of Millie at 11 months.  She is crawling on her hangs and knees everywhere now and getting in to everything!  She loves getting in to the cabinets in the kitchen and playing with the pots.  She also can pull her self up to things now.  She isn't as drooly as she was last month, but she still has no teeth!  I love you Miss Millie!!!

 This sweet girl sure puts up with a lot from her brother!

I'm pretty sure it's IMPOSSIBLE to get a picture of all four kids looking at the camera and smiling.  I don't know how photographers do it!!

10 Months!

Miss Millie is TEN months old already!  She sure is a sweet little lady!  She has mastered the art of the army crawl and is working on crawling on her hands and knees now.  She is super drooly which makes us think she is working on some teeth, although she doesn't have any yet.  She sleeps great and is generally a super happy baby.  The other kids LOVE her and love to make her laugh.  She is such a fun addition to our crazy family :)

I did a little photoshoot with Millie.  Here are some of the shots I got...what a sweetie!!

 Our kids LOVE their blankets that Grandma Simmons made them.  I do too!  When my mom made one for Lincoln as a baby, I stated using it first and actually "stole" it (sorry Linc!).  So, my mom made Lincoln a new one.  All of my kids sleep with their blankets every night and absolutely love them!  Brynlee has loved hers so much that it has turned into strings! 

I was starting to get worried that Brynlee might get strangled in the night with her blanket of strings.  So, grandma Simmons was nice enough to make her a new one!

NINE Months!

Seriously baby girl...stop getting older!  I mean, I love to watch you grow, but I'm so sad to see the baby years going off into the distance.  I've never considered myself a "baby person", but I have really learned to appreciate the baby years.  Since I've been a mom now for 8 years, I realize just how quickly time goes by and how quickly you won't be a baby anymore.  I'm trying my best to enjoy every minute with you.  My favorite time of day with you is when I put you to bed at night.  I hold you in the dark room and rock you in the chair.  After you have finished your bottle, I let you lay your head on my shoulder.  This is the only time of the day that you actually relax and lay your head down.  I LOVE IT!  You usually fall asleep, but sometimes you pick your head up to look at me and smile.  My heart melts.  Sometimes I fall asleep holding you and then Daddy comes in to find me :)  I love our time together.  This week you learned how to clap your hands.  When I was putting you to bed last night you kept lifting your head off my shoulder so you could show me your new skill...clap, clap, clap.  It was so cute!  You are NINE months old now and cuter then ever!  You can army crawl all over now and find little scraps of food wherever you crawl to.  You eat all sorts of food now, not just what you find on the floor.  You babble all the time and love to clap.  You are still the favorite in the Loveridge house :)  Everybody just adores you!!!  I think I love you the most :)

Lincoln turns THREE!

Three years ago our little Lincoln joined our family.  He was such a sweet, sweet baby that has grown into a high energy, determined BIG three year old!  He is quite tall and people always mistake him for being much older than he really is.  He loves treats and will do just about anything to get one.  He is really good at climbing and coming up with ways to get what he wants.  He moves chairs all around the house, stacks boxes on chairs, climbs on anything just to get what he wants.  I'm hoping his strong determination will be good for him when he's older :) I just need to make sure he doesn't hurt himself before then!  Lincoln is a funny kid too!  He loves to make "potty" jokes and pick on his older siblings. He can be sweet at times, but usually prefers to be crazy!  He tries my patience a lot but also makes me laugh all the time!  I sure love that crazy Linc!!!
