Fall Fun with Family

What a busy few weeks we have had over here at the Moots' House.  We are steadily moving further into the year and our making our way into the fall.  I can't even begin to wrap my head around the fact that Christmas is about 7 weeks away...nor can I believe that Christian will graduate NP school in just a few weeks.  We started this journey almost three years ago when Aubrey was just three years old.  I remember saying, "She will be 6 when you graduate!" and that seeming so distant and far off...but here we are just days away from C's graduation and a new chapter in our lives.  Baylor has never known a life with his daddy not working every single weekend.  I have no doubt our children will only blossom once their daddy is back and able to resume a normal routine.  I just can't wait.

We've had a lot of great events these past few weeks and I wanted to make sure to document these special days.

First up C and I celebrated 8 years of marriage!  WOW! I can't believe we have been a married couple that long and have three babies too!  My dreams have been fulfilled more than I could have ever imagined.  Christian is everything I could ever dream of in a husband and he is my best friend.  We have so many laughs and share so many wonderful memories.  We've walked many difficult roads from miscarriages to health scares to just day to day trials, but we have always managed to come out on the other end much stronger.  We've had a month long NICU stay with Baylor, in the midst of full time school and work in addition to two small babies at home but again we made it. We are so blessed and we are constantly in awe of what we have been blessed with in our marriage and family.

We celebrated with dinner to our favorite restaurant and then we did a painting class. It was so much fun!  Christian did half and I did half.  It was not easy allowing him free reign with painting...I so badly wanted to reach over and paint/correct his picture...but just like with marriage, it took teamwork and ultimately we had a unique masterpiece. Such a special night!

We also celebrated our sweet Bre's 6th birthday!  I can't even begin to tell you how special this little girl is to us.  She is such an amazing big sister and each day she gets a little bit sweeter.  She's always been a strong willed child, but I am seeing her little heart soften and become more and more the sweet and kind little girl I so desperately want her to be.  She is working so hard in kindergarten and has stayed on "green" for behavior every single day so far.  I am just so proud of her and how hard she works.  Aubrey does not give up...she will put her mind to something and she will work at it until she sees it to completion.  I hope and pray she will continue to use that perseverance and strong will to make great decisions and impact the world in a mighty way.

I also was able to go to Aubrey's very first field trip to the pumpkin patch.  We had such a great time.  Aubrey was not the least bit concerned that I was there and was totally doing her own thing.  She is such a mess.  All the other little girls were clinging to their mommies but my Aubrey was at the front of the line, ready to tackle the next adventure.  Left her poor momma in the dust! Even though I felt a little neglected... we still had a wonderful time.  


And my sweet boys are just doing great.  Weston is such a momma's boy and it never fails that he manages to get me to let him stay home with him even when he should be at school.  He is such a smooth talker and can melt my heart in just one sentence. He is the smartest three year old I know and his personality is just hilarious.  He keeps me laughing and I just adore his little self. 

 Bay Bay continues to be just a little sack of sugar and pure joy.  He is working so hard at therapy and continues to make great progress.  We are so in love with that angel...he is pure heaven. 

Oh and last but not big girl learned to ride her bike with no training wheels!!  She is absolutely a rock star when it comes to riding her bike...she's such hard worker and I am so proud of her!
