Neal's Berry Farm out in Spring and it was really nice! It was our first time picking on vines with thorns, but I think it brought that little element of danger that any berry picking event needs! They also had a farmers market and we picked up a few veggies for dinner this week that were delicious. And I also thought the prices were very reasonable - especially for the berries. This ends my Neal's Berry Farm commercial. :)
And shockingly, with just a little soak in some Biz those stains came right out!! Now our goal is to get out and pick blueberries before they are all gone! But we are so very sick in this house right now - Annie, Wyatt, and me! You know its bad when Momma is sick!! Agghhh!

She went for her check-up today and the doc confirmed that she is precious and adorable! ;) She was 27.25" long, 17 lbs 3 oz, and had an 18" head circumference. So that makes her 40% for height and 20% for weight. She didn't say but I'm sure she is at the top of the charts for her head! She is definitely "gifted of dome" as we like to say. She is still nowhere near crawling and has no interest in pulling up or anything of the sort. We are very happy to let her stay a baby as long as she wants! I'm definitely not ready to have to sweep my floors regularly!!
She also happens to have some sort of stomach bug, so we were glad we brought her in today for the check-up. We tried to give her some pedialite tonight but she was just more interested in chewing on the cup. The doc also said we should try giving her some yogurt so we can start to get an idea of how she will transition to milk. Ummmmmm, I think we know it is not going to go well. But we'll give it a shot. Maybe that other reaction wasn't due to milk but just the type of formula? I guess we'll see!
Now I know we have 2 other kids, but Annie has been so very special to us. Before she was born we were feeling so very tired. Tired and exhausted dealing with the life of staying home with 2 little boys. But Annie has been the breath of fresh air all of us needed. Sent straight from God. He knew exactly what we needed. What I needed. What Josh needed. What the boys needed. I just can't explain the ways we have seen the boys grow in tenderness and as caregivers since she has been born. She brought the laughter back to our house, and we couldn't be happier with our angel girl. Especially now that it is certain she will be our last. We love you Annie Rose!!

His brother got him a bat man car, which was quite a hit. Wyatt was so pleased with himself that he had to give his crazy crooked smile. :)
I can't even imagine that he has been a part of our lives for 6 years! We talked to him a lot about how special he was to us cause he was our first baby. We showed him pictures of the day he was born and he was really into it. He was especially tickled that he was our smallest baby - he couldn't believe he was smaller than Annie! He also thought it was hysterical that Josh stuck his finger into his diaper and got poop on it. I really love to talk to him about how much we loved him before he even took his first breath, how we adored him as a baby, and how much more precious he is to us now. Love my sweet little baby Noah J.

And of course the day ended with the familiar refrain, "Momma, would you wrap me up please?" I think that is their favorite part of swimming!

Noah J got in on the action until the paint got into a little cut on his finger. The boy truly fell apart! His sad little face just melts my heart! He seems so grown up all the time, until I see a picture like this and then I realize how itty bitty he still is. Love him!
