Congratulations to Matt and Meg on their beautiful baby girl!!!! God is so Good!!

A little update on what we have been up to lately. Last weekend we finally had Hailey's (make-up) sleepover. She had gotten sick and everyone had to go home on her birthday. The girls had lots of fun!

Hailey, Averi, and Allison
Saturday mom offered to watch the kids while I went to Vincennes SHOPPING!! YAY! Kohl's had a sale. I enjoyed it as well as the kids. They love to go to mom's and they even got to play with the neighbor kids there. They love them! Sunday we went back to moms for lunch. Ryan's were there also. It was a beautiful day so John took the kids fishing in the afternoon. That's all Jayce knows right now. He wants to go every minute he is home. Papaw Raber took him last night. He's went probbably 4 times this week. Monday and Tuesday Jayce was home from school. His asthma was acting up pretty bad. He is doing lots better now. Mya started running fever Tues. night. She is still running fever. She has an ear infection, poor baby!!:( This week we did enjoy some of the nicer days Here are the kids painting.

Hailey had gymnastics last night. She absolutely LOVES gymnastics! She is doing pretty well too. Of course I would think so right?! Here is a picture of her Straddle over the what ever that thing is called. Can't think of it right now. Ha! She does it herself though. I'm sure I would have been too scared to do that when I was young. I was a scaredy cat!

Tonight I guess we will be home since Mya hasn't been feeling well. John is going to mow! The grass is looking so pretty everywhere.
Oh and here is a picture of me and Mya Sunday. John found us like this when he came home from fishing. It was the only way I could get her to sleep that day. She has been doing lot's better on sleeping now. I can usually lay her down without waking her.

Tonight starts Jayce and Hailey's spring break. They are planning a lot!! It is so funny to hear them plan. They want to go camping, golfing, fishing, bowling, Chuck E Cheeses and Build a Bear. HMM!! Wonder if we could get to all that. I'm sure not the camping.

Ideas PLEASE!!

Okay, how do you make a baby sleep??!! She does sleep pretty good nights, I know I shouldn't complain if she's sleeping well at night. But she absolutely does not want to sleep days. Not at all. She will fall asleep while I rock her, but as soon as I lay her down she starts screaming. Every single time I try!! She will go right back to sleep when I pick her up but cannot lay her down again. How do you lay her off without waking her?? She is very grumpy without naps, she is only 1. Otherwise we are doing wonderful. Lovin all this wonderful weather!!

Mya's First Party!

My beautiful baby girl!!! She is such a blessing to this family. She is a very very energetic outgoing girl! She is pretty strong willed also. Has to have HER own way! She loves the outdoors just like her big sis and bro!

mya decided to try and feed Hailey and Jayce!

She didn't DIG into her cake. She's too much of a princess I guess! She just touch and tasted then started crying when she noticed the mess on her. She doesn't like messes, I guess she's like her mama!!

Jayce and Hailey had to open her gifts. She could care less!

Here is a clip of her picking at her cake! Jayce couldn't understand why she wouldn't just dig in:)

Mya had he one year check up yesterday. Here is Hailey holding her while we were waiting for the doctor. She is such a scrawny little thing. She was 30 inches long! But only weighs 18 lbs. and 5 ozs. Above average in length and below average in weight. I feed her I promise. She is just such a picky eater. He said to load her up on things high in calories. Guess we'll try that. Hopefully she'll start gaining some. The doctor said she is doing great!:)

Mya Faith is 1

I want to dedicate this post to my beautiful little girl! Today is her 1st birthday! I can't believe it has been 1 year already, it seems like just yesterday we brought her home with us. She was a 7 lb. 4 oz. perfect little baby. It was another loooong labor, which is just how my labors are. But once they are here. It's all worth it!:)

My three little ones are such blessings. I pray that we will raise them the way God wants us to. I want them to love the Lord with all there hearts. I know God has a special plan for each one, I just hope that we can enstil the desire to find out what it is in their hearts.

She is such a little squirt, she loves this one baby. It is her very favorite. She will hold it against her and pat, pat. It is sooo sweet. It has a paci just like her.

She has started taking quite a few steps now. Still pretty wobbly but she's getting there. In this video you can tell how excited the Jayce and Hailey are. Hillarious!

Happy Birthday to my sweet little Mya!! Mommy loves you!!

Sick! Sick! Sick!

Yes the reason I have not been posting is because we have had someone in the house sick since...................................thinking.....................oh last Wendsday!! Mya started with the stomach bug on Wendsday a week ago. It lasted until Saturday. Which Jayce started on Saturday morning and his lasted until Monday night. Hailey had started on Monday morning and is still sick. Yes she is still running to the bathroom. Mya by the way we took to the emergency room Sunday night, she has pnemonia! John says he think he had a touch of it sometime in there, not sure when. I havn't had the pleasure of this lovely visitor yet. Hopefully I am not going to get to meet it. I pray that tommorow we will all be better finally!!:) Thank God for the wonderful Mother and Father that I have. They came to help out a few times. It's kinda hectic with so many sick at the same time. At least we had some nice weather in there somewhere. It let me step out and take a breat of fresh air. I needed it to keep my sanity!!:)
Oh and my sweet little baby will be 1 on Monday!!:) I can't believe it's been a year! Time flies!

Enjoying Life!

It's been awhile since I have posted. I look back on what we have been doing for the last while and I am so happy! We have just been hanging out and enjoying life as a family! I have been so blessed! I have 3 beautiful children and a wonderful husband!
We now have a new member in the Raber house. It is a girl! Her name is Missy! Hailey, Mya and I went to pick her up at Ryan and Chelsa's today while Jayce was in school. They wanted to give Missy a bath right when daddy got home. Then the poor puppy has been cuddled and held all night. Hopefully she likes it. Isn't she adorable!! Thanks Chelsa, Ryan and B:)

Jayce's last basketball game was Saturday and here is my little guy with his medal! He's all smiles!

I love to watch Mya and the kitty play together through the window. Mya will sit there and look for the kitty a lot. The kitty likes her too as you can see.

The weather is suppose to be warmer tommorow! Yeah! I wish it could stay that way now. Ha!
