18 Months!

Okay so they turned 18 months over a week ago, but we just had our check up today. Everything looks good Rylan weighed in at 25.12, Brett 25.4 and Brileigh 24 even. After spending a half an hour in the room with us checking them all out one at a time, their doctor looked at me seriously and said "I think I need to prescribe something for adding extra energy." I said for me?

I'm glad they were pretty good at the appointment. We had a crazy night last night. I think it was pretty windy everywhere in Nebraska yesterday, but last night right after I put them to bed, they reported 100 mph wind in Lexington which is 25 minutes away from us. Jeremy came running in the house, get them in the basement now, it's heading this way! I got pack n plays set up in the basement, not knowing how long we would be down there, rounded up the cat and dog and huddled down. The kids knew something was wrong and were crying on and off. Luckily we were only down there for a half an hour with no incidents. They did report 16 tornado touch downs in our area though.

We've been working on some sharing issues in our house lately. Mostly it's Brett wanting what his siblings have at any given moment. Usually they drop what they are holding and move on. But sometimes they don't want to give into the bullies demands. That's when I find some of these on them:
So what should I expect in 5 years, black eyes?


  1. They are adorable! Glad to hear you all were safe from the storms! I can't imagine handling 3 @ the same time ...I only have 1 & sometimes he wears me out! Hope you have a great week!

  2. You have biters?!?! Oh no! No biting here, just hitting.
