Playing Catch up

Well it has been a while since I posted last sorry I am not staying updated better so much has been going on and I was feeling a bit overwhelmed by every thing. But I am starting to get back into the swing of things and getting back to a schedule even though it is a new one.

Christmas has come and gone and what a great Christmas it was we got lots of great things and I even got a big surprise this year. Bryan got me the phone I wanted but the way it happened I got it be for Christmas. He got me the new G1 which is the best phone ever I love it! So because I got the expensive phone I wasn't expecting any thing else but Santa got me the 5 qt Kitchen Aid I wanted..... and it is even in red! I was so excited! I have only used it once since I haven't done much baking because we all keep being sick. The kids got bunk beds from Santa and what a night mare that was but that is for another post. They also got a TV and DVD player in their room so that I can be in my room and they are up stairs when I am not being able to get out of bed and to play the smart cycle Mam-maw and Joseph got them for Christmas. Tate got lots of Wall-e things and Jocelyn got lots of movies and clothes one of which is the dress in the picture below it was her special gift form me since she is such a big helper. Chase got the big dinosaur that I wanted to get him since I was able to get it for $100 on clearance I was so excited to get it for him and he LOVES it! Bryan didn't get alot this year but he did get every thing he asked for. And then I got him clothes which he didn't but needed:) Oh and we got a Blu Ray player which was a wonderful gift thanks mom!

Tummy Baby update. I tripped and fell befor Christmas and landed on my tummy in mom's front yard. I feel so dumb but the baby stoped moving after I fell for 45 minutes I was so scared but we went to the hospital and got to hear his heart beat and then he started moving and has been moving REALLY good ever since. We also got to see him at my last Dr.'s appointment to make sure every thing was ok and guess what he is still a and we have deiced on a name finally.... yeah.... It is going to be Cooper Benjamin Rookhuyzen. I love the name cooper and the nickname Coop.

Jocelyn is loving school. She was sad that winter break was so long. But she was so excited to get to see Uncle Josh and spend so much time with Bryce and Abby. She is really starting to grow up she has been a huge help for me I don't know what I would do with out her. She is so excited for the new baby and kisses him good night every night!

Tate has started preschool he goes a few days a week and gets to ride the bus to and from school. It is nice for him to be getting the help he needs and a break for me. He gets to sleep on the top bunk of the bunk beds because after one night Jocelyn decided she didn't like to and he loves to sleep up there. I am just glad one of them do.

Where do I start with Chase he is such a nut! He has been really sick lately he got sick on Christmas and was throwing up for a week after what a mess I am so glad he is over that one but now he like the rest of us has a really bad head cold. The other day I was siting and he came up to me and touched my tummy and I said Baby Cooper and he said "No Baby Cooper my Baby Dinosaur" he said the whole thing so clear I couldn't believe it. He has been calling Cooper a Baby Dinosaur for quite a while now but it was so funny. Chase is also a bottomless pit we can't keep enough food in this kids he is always hungry and eats all his food and what every one else doesn't too. He is just like his Uncle Zach!

Mom took these pictures after Brendl cut their hair which they all needed badly and she did a great job! But mom got a second light and all 3 were excited to get their picture taken. I am hoping that me and mom get feeling better soon so that we can get some belly pictures soon:)
