My Girls Growing Up

It has been so much fun watching my little Kaitlee play soccer this year. The season started off a little rough for the Rockets because they all have such sweet, timid personalities so they had a hard time being very aggressive. But the last few games they really started to get the hang of it. Kaitlee actually got right in the middle of the crowd a few times and got some really good kicks in.
This past week was crazy hair day, hence the colorful hair. They looked pretty cute! Kaitlee and Zeke have so much fun playing soccer together. Sometimes they get so caught up in each other they forget what's going on in the game. It's actually pretty funny. With a little practice this summer, I'm really excited to see how she does in the fall.

Kaitlee and Ivy have become so close within the past few months. I think Ivy is finally old enough that Kaitlee can enjoy playing with her.
They love to go out to their little playhouse in the backyard and have tea parties, play in their pool, ride bikes together or play dolls. Basically Kaitlee tells Ivy what they are going to do and Ivy is happy to do it. I'm not sure how long that will last, but for now I guess Ivy doesn't mind being bossed around.

In less than two weeks, little Reesie is going to be one. I can't believe it!!! This year has gone by way too fast. I wish I had a SLOW DOWN button that I could push so I could enjoy this part of my life a little bit more. I look at these girls and can't believe they are all mine. I feel like it was just yesterday that I had Kaitlee and now she's almost five.
They are all at such fun ages and I would love it if it could stay axactly like this for a couple more years. But I know it won't, and I know that the future will be just as great. I'm looking forward to adding to our family and making new memories together.

It seems like yesterday to ME that Kaitlee was just born, too! Holy smokes! They are all just perfect (I seriously don't know how you ever say no to any one of those pairs of eyes - they are gorgeous!)...and I love and admire how much you enjoy being a mom. The picture of Sonrisa in the tub smiling looks SO much like that picture of you when you were a baby. I've always thought she looked like her daddy, but I definitely see you in her in that one! Is that "looking forward to adding to our family" an announcement??? Love you Leesee!

I have such beautiful little nieces! They are so adorable. Our kids are growing up way too fast! But we're not getting any older, right? :)

Ha, ha, ha, Malia! That's funny! No, I'm not pregnant but am hoping to have at least one more in the future... distant future!

I thought it was possibly an announcement also. Haha!! Your girls are the cutest girls I know. I can't believe how big they are getting. They're like little people now. I know what you mean about slowing down time. It's not going to last long enough and I hope I can take it all in. They're so fun right now!!

Oh my goodness - they're so adorable! I can't believe Kaitlee is almost FIVE!! That's crazy! And your house is totally coming along! I bet you're so excited. Oh, and about the zoo - I TRIED to get Paul to get a picture with those gorilla arms and he wouldn't! :(
