Chloe looses her FIRST TOOTH!!!!

So we have been in SLC since Friday and we are having a good time! It is a short quick trip, but we are excited to be here. We got to see some of our BESTEST friends yesterday and it was so much fun! Whenever we see them it seems as if time never passed. They are such good friends and we miss them so much! We LOVE them dearly and wish they'd move to Spokane to be closer to us!!!! We love you Riches!

It has been sooo nice spending time with Brian's family. We always have such a wonderful time with them and miss them so much while we are away. We cant wait to come back down for Christmas and spend some more quality time with them since this will be a such a quick trip!

So Chloes frount bottom tooth has been loose for a while and so last night it was just dangling so we told Chloe she had to pull it out, otherwise it would fall out in her sleep and she would choke on it! So needless to say it was a LONG TRAUMATIC experience!!!!!! We had tied dental floss around the base so that we could pull the floss and it would pop out! Once I had gotten the floss on I pulled a little and she started SCREAMING BLOODY MURDER! So I decided to let her try to do it herself. Well she wouldnt and wanted to take the floss out but I couldnt because it was tied around the base and was under the tooth...Well it took her about 45 mins and finally after all the tears and screaming and NO TOOTH, I had Brian hold her down and I yanked the two strings and out it popped and she stopped crying and started laughing and smiling and was soooooo excited to have her first tooth out..yeah we should have just held her down at the begining and it wouldnt have been so bad! Now we know for next time! Here are a few pics of her TRAUMATIC night!

Korbin is 5 months old!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Where does time go???? I cant believe that he is already 5 mos old. He is getting sooooo big. He is 17 pounds and 29 inches long. He has 2 more inches before he has to be moved out of the baby carseat. I am hopeing we can get him to sit up that way we can put him in a big carseat and he'll be able to sit up in shopping carts...we'll see! He is soooo SMILY! He is an even happier baby than Chloe was just a sweet heart. He is rolling over like crazy. Fount to back, back to front and all over. He started eating solids and is loving them especially bananas...which was Chloes favortie too! He is babbling like crazy and has so much to say. He is also teething. His bottom teeth are so close to comming in. Chloes loosing them and he is getting em...too funny!
Life is good and we are just trying to figure out what is next for us! Brian is trying to finish school and I am thinking of going back to school for cosmetology. We'll see though...

So I am on a kick to LOOSE WEIGHT!  For real this time! I am sick and tired of being sick and tired! I am like totally on a roll! I have been doing it for 2 weeks now and have lost 7 pounds and I feel freeking fabulous! My goal is to loose 30 by Christmas and then 45 by March! So root me on!  Weight Watchers seems to be the easiest thing I have tried! So we'll see how I feel in a month! But So far so good!  

Chloe is LOVING Kindergarten! She loves her teacher and cant wait to go every day to learn and grow!  She has sooo much to say and is really learning fast!  She has come home some days and told me what she learned or what she wrote and I can hardly believe that this is my 6 year old daughter!!!!!  She is extremely eager for Christmas!  She wants and American Girl doll soooooooooooooooooo bad for Christmas. That is all she can talk about, it is so funny! I have one and all my sisters have them!  They are the best doll that a girl can EVER HAVE.  What she doesnt know is that I have already bought it for her and it is sitting at her Grandma Crenshaws waiting for us (We are headed to utah for Christmas this year) Here is a picture of the one she wanted her name is Ruthie and she is really cute!
We are really excited to go to Utah for Christmas and can hardly wait! It will be so much fun!  

Korbin is getting sooooo BIG, I can hardly stand it! I havent taken any pictures for a while so I dont have one to post...I IKNOW sucky mom but I am having a hard time keeping up with 2 kids...AHHH it is harder than I thought it would be!  But he is soooooo precious.  He is like 4 mos and 2 weeks old and weights 16 pounds and is 29 inches long.  He is thinning out pretty fast! He is tall...oh he also has darker hair which I LOVE...who knows if it will stay that way but it is a light brown...not blond which is what I had expected!

Brian is working like crazy for one of his good friends ROOFING! Yeah a sucky sucky job!  But it pays and we need money so...he is also trying to finish his school but the test he is studing for right now will be really really hard so is a little nervous and has taken a little longer stufing than he should have! But he is doing good and turned 29 on Thurs...I will do that post later.  But he is feeling like an OLD GEEZER! 

Me...nothing much besides being a CRAZY out of CONTROL mother! I feel as if my head is chopped off...or like a zombie...I can NEVER get enough sleep...even though Korbin sleeps throught the night I still am ALWAYS tired.  I am hoping with this weight loss that it will speed up my metabolism and give me some energy that I am in desperet need of!  I chopped my hair which I will post a pic of later and LOVE IT! I went really blong and it is...well I cant explain, I'll post some of the hair tomorrow when I blog about Brians B-day! But I am loving having a baby again although it is hard I really am LOVING it! HE is a wonderful baby! And Chloe is adjusting pretty well, although some days she wants to send Korbin back to where he came from! She loves him but I can tell she misses her time alone with us!  This week I am going to take her out for a mommy and daughter night to show her she is still important! 

Well thats my life lately!!!!!
