This little light of Mine!

Our little punky is the best! She has been quite the challenge lately, but man, her smile lights up the room! She is independent, hilarious, beautiful, full of energy and all ours! 

This is her at gymnastics.  A local gymnastics studio has a free play for an hour for toddlers.  She gets to run around, play with her friends and wear her "nastics" leotard!

Ever since giving her paci's to the Easter Bunny, she has been sleeping in our bed more..... 
I would rather have the bed to ourselves, but look how adorable!

Big girl!

Kate has had a lot of big milestones lately.  We are about 80% potty trained.  She is doing great going pee, but every time she has to poop, she goes in her underwear/pullup.  I sent her to the gym today in regular underwear and she had a poop accident. ugh! She just says, "sorry" and shrugs her shoulders. haha.

She also just gave all of her pacis to the Easter Bunny.  We did the same with Max and Claire and it was a success.  It has been harder on me this time around.  She was so attached to them.  She had a sleepover in Max's room with Claire so the first two nights went pretty well.  She woke up one time and Justin told her he would call the Easter Bunny to see if he still had them.  She fell back to sleep a few minutes later! lol   I cried putting her down for a nap yesterday! She's slowly turning into a big girl. waahhhh! I need my baby to stay a baby!
It's also super hard when she is sad/tired/mad bc she used it to soothe herself.  Now she just gets mad and her crying/tantrums last a lot longer. :(

wishing I had a paci to give her! haha
I can't believe her third birthday is in a month! Next big girl move is a big bed! She has been talking about that for a few months now! Can't wait to finally decorate her room!

Princess Kate

I am way overdue documenting Kate!  She is a riot and has so much personality!  She is three short months away from being THREE!! {enter sad face}.

She loves to wear, what she calls, Princess dresses.  And when I say love, I mean is obsessed!
Even got her best buddy to dress up with her!
It's a battle I am letting her win.  She sleeps in these dresses, goes to Target, the gym, library, you name it, she wears it!

Nanny calls this her "Gloria" dress! lol. This is on Valentines day.  She wore it to get frozen yogurt!

This was a compromise! I let her pick out bow and tutu, I picked out the rest.  School day!

This morning she woke up with a fever, but seemed to be feeling fine. Well, I had a personal training session at the gym, so I asked Justin if he could watch her since she had a fever.  He took her to Costco to get something for work and they came back with this dress.  I died! LOL.  It is my least favorite of her dresses, but he said this is his last little girl so she gets what she wants! haha!
She loves to wear purses and "go shopping to Target" lol.  She loves her babies and doing anything with Max and Claire!

She has been waking up early morning (b/t 4-6) but as soon as I get her and put her in my bed, she cuddles up and falls back to sleep.  She is a Mama's girl and I am loving every second of it!!

Great Wolf Lodge

Last week we took the family to Great Wolf Lodge for Max and Claire's birthday.  It was just the Fredrick five and it was so much fun.  We arrived around 3:00 on Tuesday and left about 3:00 on Wednesday.

I don't have too many pictures because we were in the water the whole time!

The big kids, Justin and I loved the rides.  Our favorite was the tornado.  It was so fast and so much fun.  I don't think I've seen Max as happy as he was at GWL! They also had a "lily pad" area as the kids called it.  They both enjoyed that and the wave pool as well!
The lifeguards were amazing.  They were like robots and never took their eyes off the water.

Kate LOVED the toddler area! She was content the whole time and loved the baby slides as well!

After playing for a few hours, we went for dinner and ice cream.

After ice cream we stopped by the arcade for more fun!  We have already decided we need to go back!  They have a fridge and microwave in your room so you can bring snacks and drinks.  Some of my friends have taken sandwiches and eaten most of their own food to save money.  We ate in the restaurant but next time we will just order a pizza and stay at the pool until it closes at 8.

The only other thing we will do different is take another adult or travel with more family.  Even though we all had a blast, we had to split up most of the time bc Kate couldn't go down the slides and wanted to stay in the baby pool the whole time.  We did get Claire to sit with her at a table with a snack while we rode one ride together at the end of the day.

Can't wait to go back!

My babies are SEVEN!

I blinked.  All of the sudden, my 5.13 and 6 lb babies are seven! The statement, "days go by so slow and years so fast" (or whatever it is) Is so true! Yesterday Max and Claire turned seven.  They are tracked out of school for the next three weeks so we had a fun day together.

I made their favorite muffins for breakfast...complete with a candle and singing "Happy Birthday"

Their big present this year is we are going to Great Wolf Lodge! But, for fun, we went to Target and Justice and they got to pick out something small.  Then we went to see Paddington 2.  It was really cute!
sidenote: They are both tall.  Max is a good three inches taller and it makes her look short! We go for their well visit next week and I'll have to update stats.  I'm guessing Max is still off the charts and Claire is in the 80%.

Justin came home early from work and we took them to Dave and Busters.  It's an arcade/restaurant.  We all had so much fun!

Happy New Year!

Happy 2018!!

Wasn't planning on posting, but I just set up my new computer.  I am the most excited bc my iCloud works again! Blogging/keeping up with the kids is a top goal for 2018!

Ringing in the new year with style!

Happy Holidays!

I'm so far behind on catching up with life and the kids -- I just decided to start from present!

I can't believe we are halfway through December.  November flew by!  We spent Thanksgiving at the beach with Grandpa and Grandma Fredrick, Darcy and Brad.  We watched a lot of football and had a few walks on the beach.

We were also able to take some family pictures :) I love how they turned out!

Sister Love!

My girls!

One of my favorite pictures with Grandma and Grandpa!
