Tyler has been home for over a week now. It has been really nice to have my best friend and companion on my side. The only thing is that if Tyler is home we are not making any money to pay the bills. Im trying not to think about that tho.
Today we went to the mall and had Flora's ears pierced. She did wonderful the holding still part seemed worse than the actual piercing. Tyler didnt watch he said he turned his head, I was holding her , she cried for a second but that's all. I gave he baby Tylenol before we left to be sure she had some relief. It was cute tho Tyler picked out her earrings they are blue/turquoise flowers I was leaning towards white or pink but we let daddy pick.
Flora started smiling right at 3 months ; she has always smiled but is now smiling to people , things reactions rather than just gas. She loves her daddy and sisters. They love her as well. Brooky tries to hold her by herself and lucia wants to also be mommy. The girls all told Flora how good she did after her ears were pierced it was cute they were so proud of her!
When we got home tonight we switched a little bit of furniture around but guess what happened when we got home?
Flora rolled over from her tummy to back for the first time!!!

This evening was wonderful! We spent quality time with our family. I know that that may sound simple but lately those times of just us are hard to come by. All day we were together. Tyler and his dad worked on getting out the birds from the carport early this morning but they were done by 10am. I guess that is early but now I realize why we go to bed so early as well we are defiantly a go go go family. Having Tyler on call 24 7 takes a toll on our schedules and my emotions. It is an amazing blessing that we have a job. The economy seems to have steadily declined I keep looking for the "ups". But then I realized that we are so blessed and that I have nothing to complain about; when I really look at it. We have hard times paying the bills and who really knows how long we will be able to keep our heads above water but we are blessed.
Today after being together as just us we went up to my mother and father in laws house "nanna" and "grandpas" for dinner. After dinner and goofing around along with me being me we then trucked down to our home for fireworks. We bought one but grandpa was amazing at having a huge pack along with sparklers and poppers. I guess Tyler and Brooky would call them "snaps"
Its interesting to watch all of our girls different personalities shine through during events such as fireworks. BrookLynne needed a heads up and "practice" along with "warnings" all day long. I knew I had to prepare her. All day I told her about the loud sounds and bright lights. She practiced putting her fingers in her ears - by tonight she was ready.
Lucia is fearless and wanted to be right up and close- this scared me BrookLynne was timid to touch the sparklers and Lucia wanted to light her own. Flora didnt even flinch to the noise or sound.
Besides the rain it was a great evening.
10pm and im wiped bed time
