A hard day's work:

Here are a few out-takes from our picture taking for our Christmas cards...well mostly of Hadley. She did so well, and then she was out! Precious baby!

"Baby Brain"

When I was working, I remember being on one particular audit where the client I was working with made a remark pertaining to childbirth, and with the loss of the placenta there is also loss of brain cells. I laughed then, thinking it sounded funny, but completely clueless how true that statement could be.

I must confess I'm officially diagnosed with "Baby Brain". I don't know if it has to do with the lack of sleep, too many things to do and keep up with, but I'm there. Perfect example...last week at gymnastics, one mommy wanted to get my cell phone number (easy right!!???......WRONG). It took me three tries before I got it right!! THREE TRIES! I've had the number for about five years!! Seriously.

After talking to one of my friends who just had her second baby, she told me she forgot the year of her oldest daughter's birth date...and she is only four. So I was in good company. Hopefully these brain cells will be replaced soon, but I'm not holding my breath.

She Bangs, She Bangs...

Ok, part two of our cutting bangs incident....yes, I know it could have been much worse...I've heard many of your stories!! Here are the pictures of them today before Sweet and Sassy:

Here are the afters: (yes, Maylee got a haircut too, to even out the bangs, and I let them cut 3 inches...a small compromise of her wanting it only one inch long!! She paid for both of the cuts with her birthday money, and then wanted to go back again once we got back home. We will see if this was a lasting lesson or not!)

See, you can't even see the bangs when they are combed back, and then they look like little wispies when you do see them.

I just thought this was cute pic of Maylee and Hadley today. May loves holding her!

These are some fun pics from Thanksgiving, and proof why grandparents are so much fun.

I just thought this was funny. I was nursing Hadley, and looked across the room to see this. I don't think Matt knew what to do while being in a room with three nursing mamas!!

Here are some pics with Cousins McCade and Dylan. The girls just love their cousins. I thought the ones of Dylan and Hadley were pretty funny.

Bangs, Bangs, Bangs

Well it happened tonight. One of my fears came true. As I was cleaning the playroom, I started to find, chunks of cut hair...first Ella's and then Maylee's!!! Apparently, Maylee got a little happy with her monkey scissors. Ella does have bangs half way across her forehead and random chunks missing....I can tell, but I'm sure can go unnoticed to others. Maylee has a light layer of bangs as well. Maylee got some serious room time, and then really lost it when I told her that she was going to have to use some of her birthday money for a hair cut for Ella (it does need some shaping up). She keeps telling me she wants short hair like her friend J David....yes a boy! What am I going to do with her??!!! So if you see Maylee with short hair sometime soon, you will know what happened! I'll post pics later.
