Baby holly

Holly Brown was born September 18, 2017. She was 9lbs 12oz and 21in tall. She came at 5ish. I was in labor for over 24 hours. I was super scared that when I went into labor that the doctor I did not like would be on call. Well when I showed up guess who was. Well I started to cry the nurses were very supportive and told me what I needed to do in order to avoid her cutting me open. I listened to their advise all night. When the doctor switched the next morning my nurse (brought me food she was amazing) then talked to Dr Patel in letting me get petition after the other doctor said no.  Later after being on protein they broke my water ten minutes later with an epidural we had Holly. The doctor that delivered has to leave cause it was at the end of her shift so Dr Patel delivered my placenta. I am so grateful for all that the nurses did for me and keeping me going and strong. I am happy I delivered at mary washington hospital.i

Brothers and friends

Driving a pumpkin car
Max and calvin are starting to play together more. It has been fun to watch their friendship develop. Do not get me wrong Calvin is still mean and actually walks up and hits bites or kicks him for no reason. However he wil say sorry and then play. Also calvin is in a toddler bed so they are both awake early and get some brotherly bonding. Emily is jealous that they share a room. 

Holly has them addicted to snapchat

Halloween costumes minus Calvin. I apparently missed his picture. He was a dragon. It was fun they went three times. Max was a pirate, Emily little mermaids holly skeleton.

Finishing School

Max graduated Grammy school, and he will not be attending any preschool this year he is going to be stuck with Mom (poor kid). It was a cute ceremony they sang songs, did a play, and received their diploma. Max was very proud of how hard her worked all year.

Emily finished up Kindergarten I am amazed at how much she learned. She received an award from her teacher as a role model ( GO EMILY). They handed them out during a musical performance where they sang cute songs. I was with Calvin and the place was packed with people so no video sorry. My favorite part was that she asked to wear her heels. I told her because we walked she would have to change her shoes when we got there. Guess who forgot to change her shoes. Needless she performed in Crocs.

Having Fun

To flashback a few months ago we were very busy enjoying our very wet weather. Max and I built water boats and tried to float them through the ditches in our neighborhood. It was a lot of fun. Calvin also got a haircut to prepare for the heat of the summer as well as we were able to enjoy our deck by cooking some smores and BBQ food outside.

Emily was able to play soccer this last spring. Jason was her coach she improved quite a bit and is looking forward to playing in the fall. She was still a little kid playing soccer though. I look at her and she is was looking for four leaf clovers off the ground.


One of the things I love about living in Virginia is the crazy rainstorms. We took advantage of quite a few this year. Some on purpose others on accident. A couple of times we were caught in the pouring rain coming home fro the library, we were all quite soaked but everyone was still happy. It was so much rain that time though that a spotsy rock was found because it was floating in front of us like it was a make shift river. I thought it was crazy.

Calvin likes the rain sort of, but mainly he would rather be under the umbrella watching everyone get wet. Emily loves it and Max it depends on his mood. I love playing in the rain especially when it was so hot and humid.

The deck

I am missing some pictures because my phone bit the dust. We have had a lot of help with our deck. Jason's Dad has came over numerous time to help, Uncle William, Uncle Sam, Amber, Jeremy, and Holly have all came over and helped. So the first day Jason and his Dad knocked down the deck. Then the next day Jason put in posts (wrong size and wrong way). Then he finished it the following day. That Saturday a bunch of peopel came over and did the main part of the deck. That is when Uncle Sam told us that we had used the wrong posts. So on Jason's next day off a bunch of people came over again fixed the post, put the up the stairs and did part of the railing. In between the two groups of people Jason's Dad came over and helped with the little things screwing boards down on the deck, and as of right now putting up the slats so my kids do not fall off the deck. Here is a picture after the last group all worked hard.
Looking good (calvin is helping a lot he also pooped out twice this day go mom!)

How Max and Calvin entertained themselves
