Life Latelyย 

So I spent every day last week posting on our vacation. So this week will be a catch-up week. Here’s what we’ve been up to lately.

Our Seals Summer Theme Week last week was Bugs. Unfortunately, I only did one real activity with the kids, so I’ve decided to extend Bug Week to this week too! I love not having any rules!

We got home from vacation around 12:30 Monday and had to have Brady at swim lessons by 1pm! He did so good and is very comfortable in the water now. Thank you Harley and Makenna for teaching him to swim.


Tuesday we went bowling. ย ๐ŸŽณ
And celebrated Brant’s 3rd NICU Homecoming Day!

Wednesday, Tessa got sick. ๐Ÿคข๐Ÿ˜ท
(Stomach virus)

Thursday, Brady had his last t-ball game. He played so well; I’m glad he ended the season on a positive note. We are so proud of the our little team. The Rascals had a great year!



Saturday, we celebrated Ms. Mary’s birthday.

By the end of Saturday, The Virus had claimed 3 more victims: Mia, Gracie, and Brady.

And Sunday Rayleigh became the 5th victim. ๐Ÿ˜ซ
This stomach virus hasn’t been as terrible as previous stomach viruses. Tessa had it the worst and felt bad for 3 days but everyone else would vomit or have diarrhea and then be fine. It was weird. I pray they are all going to be over it very soon. ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป

Brady’s First Rangers Gameย 

Friday, Steven and I took Brady to his first Texas Rangers baseball game. We had so much fun with just our big guy. Brady is a pretty lucky guy, his first game consisted of 4 Ranger homeruns, the Rangers won, and there was a fireworks show after the game!!!! โšพ๏ธ

I have wanted to take Brady to a Rangers game for a while. I love watching baseball and I have been dreaming of the day when I could take my own kid to a game. We wanted to make sure he was old enough to enjoy the game and hopefully remember it. Now that he’s five we decided he was ready. I knew we had to pick a game when it wouldn’t be scorching hot. So April seemed like perfect month. Thankfully, the weather turned out to be beautiful! We kept checking the forecast because it was showing a low percentage of rain but thankfully it didn’t start sprinkling until the last inning. And it didn’t rain long or hard so it worked out great. And we had the perfect seats along first base line; they were just under the upper section so we didn’t get wet at all. The fireworks started about 10 minutes after the game ended. Brady loved the fireworks.

Paula came to the game with us, which worked out perfectly because she was able to pick Steven up at the airport and bring him to the game. Steven was out of town all last week for work. It was so special having Paula with us for Brady’s first game. After the game, we spent the night with Paula, then left the next morning to go get the quints.

I’m so thankful we have such a big supportive family that is always willing to help us out with the kids. In a few years we’ll take the quints to their first Rangers game and that will be wild and crazy but I’m sure they’ll love it. I’m so thankful we were able to get away and have some fun one-on-one time with Brady. He’s such an amazing big brother to the quints and loves them so much but I know he also needs our undivided attention sometimes. And he loved having all of Paula’s attention too.

Arlington bound.

Stopped for a little pick-me-up.

All ready to cheer on the Rangers!

Seeing the field for the first time.

Paula always keeps me laughing. I love my friend so much and so thankful we got to spend some time together. Everyone needs a Paula in their life.

About 10 minutes before the game started Brady started saying he was ready to go home. ๐Ÿ˜ฉ But there were plenty of things happening to keep his attention; overall he did pretty good. I think he would have done great if he would have had a nap. But overall it was a success.

The fireworks were his favorite part.


Next day we left Paula’s, ate lunch, then headed home to the quints.

So many special memories made in just 24 hours. So thankful for this time with Brady; I will treasure the moment forever.


Be blessed,


Hello Tuesday!

Hey y’all! Welcome back!

So first things first, I’ve had several people ask me if I made the girls’ Easter dresses. So I figured I’d answer everyone right now. No, I didn’t make the girls’ dresses. I really, really, really wish I were that talented, but I’m not. In fact, I can barely sew a straight line, much less smocking…I wouldn’t even know where to begin. Actually, Steven’s mom and grandmother bought all of the kids’ Easter outfits, which is such a blessing we are very grateful for….God is so good and so is Meme & Gigi!

Last Thursday, Brady had his first t-ball game. He did well. I’m so proud of him for trying something new. โšพ๏ธ

Brady has the most amazing fan club. Our family is so good about supporting everyone and he loves seeing his people in the crowd.โค๏ธ


Running from 3rd to home plate.

The quints love watching Brady play ball.

Our nurses had shirts made to support Brady. The shirts are so adorable. We are so blessed to have so many amazing people in our lives that love and adore our kiddos. Thank you Tom, Janna, and Heather! Y’all are the best! โค๏ธ

I’ll always be his biggest fan. Sure do love my Lil’ Rascal.

After the game we went to Dairy Queen for dinner.

This week is shaping up to be a busy week too, full of ball games and a fun new adventure for Brady that I can’t wait to blog about next week!

Hope you have a wonderful week!


Be blessed,


Brady’s Big Day

Thursdayย was a big day for Brady. We started the day off by registering him for kindergarten!!!! I seriously can’t believe he’s starting kindergarten in the fall. On our way there he was a little nervous and wasn’t sure about this whole “big” school stuff. But once we got there and got to talking to a few people, he quickly warmed up and did great. In fact, he’s excited about going to kindergarten now. Me on the other hand, I was struggling to not cry. I don’t know why I have to be so sensitive about everything, especially when it comes to my kids, but I am. I know he’s going to be fine and do fine, it’s just a big change and change is always hard for me. But I held it togetherย and enjoyed getting to visit with a few of my former co-workers/friends. Brady was excited that his Aunt Kayla came over to visit with him before we left.

Thursdayย night, Brady had his first tee ball scrimmage. I’ll be honest, we didn’t have very high expectations of his t-ball abilities. If you remember, soccer didn’t go so great. He just wanted to hang out with his coaches the whole time. Well, to our dismay, he actually tried last night and did a pretty good job. He hit the ball, ran fast, and wanted to get the ball on defense. His little team did good and I’m so proud that Brady had fun.

The quints wanted in the dugout so bad.

His first ever at-bat.


After the game was over, the Six Sweet Seals took the field. I didn’t think I was ever going to get them to leave.


Even though I get a little sad that my babies are growing up so quickly, I have to say, I’m excited about this season of our lives. I see lots of fun memories being made at the ballparks. โšพ๏ธ
