Our first stitches in the Mcrae family

We had to take Xander to Urgent Care. So glad Josh had not gone to his meeting yet. I don't do well when My babies get hurt. Josh and I were in the other room when we hear a cry so I go in to check and Xander was on the ground by our bookcases crying I just picked him up and really didn't look at his head I was just loving on him. Josh comes in and He saw that he was bleeding when we got it stopped enough to look at we could see good size cut on his head which was pretty deep above his eyebrow. So off we went. He really was a trooper we had to hold him down to get the stitches. Hadli was with us and she was trying to singing to him to keep him happy. She loves her brother. He cried but stooped when it was all over. When we got home it was like nothing happened he was just a little happy boy like always. I am just grateful that is all that happened. He is one and already have stitches. I will post pictures tomorrow.

What we have been up to.

Here is some pictures from June. We had a fun month.
Had a picnic in Fount Hills. Sad to say but Hadli's first official picnic. They both love being outside.
She had Swim leasons which she loved going and does so well now. She enjoyed her teacher and still talks about her. I didn't get any good pictures. I need to get some from my sister.
We were able to go to a D-backs game. We took both of the kids. They did great. Hadli had some pom poms and cheered the whole game. Xander just hung out.

Just want to wish Josh and Happy Fathers Day! He is a great daddy. The kids love him so much. He makes up a song for anything and everything. Hadli will remember everyone he makes up. He loves to play with them and teach them. I am so blessed to have such a great husband that will help with the kids from day one. He will keep them whenever I ask or he just tells me to go take a break. So I think my kids have the best daddy ever. Happy fathers daddy babe!

Jaree and I and are kids made a fast trip to Pima yesterday. She had a reception to go to and She needed someone to talk to on the trip. So that is where I came am in. It was a fun fast trip. I got to see a lot of people. Still not everyone I would love to see. But saw the grandparents. Hadli loves to see them. My brother and his family. And also one of my good friends that I haven't seen forever. Jenna and pretty much her whole family for a little. So even though it was a fast trip it was wroth it. But now back to work. And The kids did great.

9 months

Well today my little guy turned 9 months old. I can't even believe it. He is such a big boy. He all of the sudden has turned into a daddy's boy and I really don't know if I like it. He goes everywhere and is just so happy. He will stand up all the time and just hang out for a little and start clapping. He has 5 teeth now. And I see at least one more coming. He is just one happy little boy. That no one knows how young he is. We go for a check up tomorrow so I can't wait to see how big. I am just so thankful for my little man. Who is so loving and has brought so much joy to our family.

She is getting so big!

So our Hadli is one of the funniest kids ever. Really has the most personality out I have seen in a 2 year old well almost 3. This little one has carried a purse around with her everywhere she goes. I mean everywhere! Before she was 2 she had so many of them. She would find all of my old ones so they were as big as she was and she would load those babies up. We took them into every store and everyones house we went to. Finally I just had her carry her own stuff :). That is one thing she would not share at all. Cyndi even gave her a kids purse for her birthday last year that is how much she loves them. On to the next love. Which is pretties we like to call them. (chap stick, lip gloss, or lipstick). Yes she loves them can't get enough of them either. So at least I know when I can't find mine she has a back up with her at all times. When you ask for a kiss and she just put her pretties on she turns her head and says NO I have pretties on and gives us the cheek. :) She is to funny with her pretties she knows how to take off her shirt without getting them messed up to. Now for the last one. Is Shoes. She loves them. We sleep with them on. Yes they have to be on. I don't even try to fight with her on that one. Whatever. So when it is bed time we have to have those shoes on and our purse goes with us. I now I am bad mom to let her just take all this stuff to bed with her. But I don't care. In the morning if she can't find her shoes she is yelling at me to come and get her out. So I can find them for her. If she has them both she gets out on her own. And if anyone comes over (girls) and they take their shoes off she goes straight for them. She has been walking in heels for a very long time. She is better than I am. I decided not to buy anymore shoes because we will get into if I pick out a pair she doesn't thinks goes with he outfit. Now if she gets in trouble I tell her I will take her shoes away and she can't wear them. I did that today man did we have a meltdown. Than she came to me a minute later and said mom I am done crying can I have my shoes back now. That is just a little about my sweet sweet little big girl that I love so much. She is getting way to smart for me. She remembers everything little thing. She is such a good big sister. Its her baby Xander. They share a room and I love it they will now play in their beds When I lay them down for a nap and bedtime. Because he has figured how to stand up so he can see her. So they talk and laugh forever.

He goes everywhere

So I can't sleep. I thought I would post about my little man. He is just so funny. He loves his walker. He is to tall for already but. He doesn't care. He really just stands up in it all day. I will go in the other room for a second and he will be gone. I have to go looking for him. His new place to go is the playroom. The funny thing is my house doesn't have big hallways so he barely fits through in that thing. But he likes to play in there. Even if Hadli isn't in there.
This past weekend he decided that army crawling was way faster than just crawling. Even though he gets up on all four still. So he really goes all over. He loves his daddy's TV. He thinks it so funny to touch everything. I tell him no and he laughs at me. How do you really get mad at such a sweet face. He just thinks I am playing with him. Man how I love him. He really is a mamma's boy. Even though I act like I don't like it sometimes but to me honest I love it. So tonight he decided that he was going to crawl a little he did it four time in a row. If that makes any sense.
Needless to say I LOVE that little man.

Two chubby babies

Xander and Maci are just the cutest chubby babies out there. My sister's little girl is 4 months old and Xander is 7 months old. You just got to love the the chubby monkey's. Maci's Cheeks are the best with those eyes. Xander decided that he wanted to start sucking on his fingers after we hung out with them that night. It is funny to watch baby's when they are about the same size. They watch what the other ones does.

Well this boy has never been very small. It makes me sad that he wants to grow up so fast. He is now 7 months old. At 6 months he was holding his bottle and getting and rolling all over the place. Than this month he is now sitting up all on his own and this week he is up on his knees rocking back and forth. And he does a little push up move when he gets mad. It is so funny. Now I am just waiting for him to follow me where ever I go. It is just sad he wants to be so big. He now has four teeth. Two on top and two on the bottom. He is my big little man. Oh how I love him.


I know its late but oh well. We took the kids to the mall to see the Easter bunny. Hadli was so excited to see him and get her picture. But by the time we where up she did not want anything to do with him. I got Xander all ready to go and she would not let go of my leg. I finally got her to sit and the end of the bench. Xander thought the bunny was pretty cool.

So Saturday we went over to my brothers house. For a cook out and egg hunt. It was nice to have everyone there. Clint and Jenn and their kids even came down. So it was a lot of fun. We have 11 grandkids age 6 and under. So it is a crazy party when we get together. Some how we talked my mom into watching the kids all but Maci while we went to the movies. I was very impressed she had 10 of them. That was the first night that all of us siblings and our spouses went to the movies or anywhere without the kids. So it was kind of nice. Big thanks to mom. On Sunday we where with Josh's family and they all came to our house. It was fun to not as crazy just one cousin on that side. I didn't get every good pictures of my kids on Easter Sunday. Hadli just wasn't down for pictures. So I am going to dress them back up to pretend that was on Easter.

Well really we took all of our stuff to the tax guy 3 months ago. But calling them every week and than every other day it still didn't get done till today. Yes a little stressful for me. So we go them at 5 had to find a place open to drop them off. We had to go out by the zoo to drop them off. By the way we normally them done way before now. So this is all new to us. We get closer and there is just a line of cars coming from both directions. I just started to laugh. It really wasn't that bad. They are all mailed off now. And I am glad we had to drive out there because I got Chuck Box out if it all. The best onion rings in the world. It is hard trying to talk Josh into driving over there. So all in all a good night. But for next year for sure they will be done way before due date.

A few pics

This is just of my little guy. That is growing up so fast. He is getting his top two front teeth in. So now that makes four. He just wanted to be held all day. But that is ok. Hadli is just a bigger girl not a little girl anymore. She went to pima for 2 nights this weekend. I almost cried letting her go. It is weird to just have one home its just not the same. But she had fun playing with her cousins we sure do miss them.

Well I pretty much stick at the blog thing. But we are still here. I haven't even posted my little man. That we are so lucky to have. So I don't have much time now but here is a little. My little guy turn 6 months and i can't even believe it. He is really not little but we will take it. He is now 23 lbs and 28 in long so he is our big little guy. But love every inch of him. Hadli is growing up so fast she will talk your ear off. I love it. She can put to and to together and it just crazy. She loves to be with all of her cousins. And to be on the go like me :). I can't believe she will be 3 years old this July. Its just nuts.
