When we got to the island we rented a golf cart and road around on it for about 3 1/2 hours, stoppping at parks and and the beach and just enjoying the nice weather. Both kids ended up falling asleep on the golf cart! (of course the only time they nap were out somewhere and we can't nap with them) We stopped and ate and got ice cream (double chocolate- it was so good) and just really relaxed.
Caiden had a blast at the beach but i couldn't help but feel uneasy all day being out on and by the water after hearing about little Hannah's horrible accident. Although i've never met her and have hardley ever read there blog I can't get her out of my head. I think about her nonstop and just pray that her family is doing okay. I couldn't even begin to image the pain they are going through. It really makes me realize how fragile life is and to cherish EVERY moment you have with your children because you never what what tomorrow will bring.

Yes i will admit I do not work an 8 or even a 12 hour day, i am usually up by 8:30am and don't get the last child to bed until 10:3opm so right there is a 14 hour day, non stop, no breaktime no interacting with other adults just me and my children the whole day. This does not include if they wake up in the middle of the night or anything else. So on an average week i spend 95 hours working at my job, should i get paid? yes more than anyone i know, but thats not how it works, my pay comes from my children having a safe and happy childhood that they will remember for the rest of there lives and them knowing that there mother loves them more than anything and has willingly given up her life for theirs.
I don't ever put anyone down who goes out of there house and works, i know that they also are doing it to provide for there family. But to turn around and pass judgment on something you have no idea about just shows that i may be able to go out tomorrow and get a job like them but they could never do mine!
She has also started throwing tantrums! If she doesn't get what she wants she throws herself back, no matter where she is, thankfully i've always been there to catch her. Our biggest fight lately has been kepping her in her car seat. We buckle her in the right way and she starts by putting her arms through the straps, then her legs and then turns herself around and stands up. We have tried everything to keep her in there. I guess we'll have to think of something else. She is way to smart for her age! (i think i may have trouble with this one!)
Caiden has been acting a little different also. He has always been such a good big brother and still is but he has started acting jealous and has been acting out for attention. I think it may have to do with Hailey's first birthday and all the attention being on her but lately he takes her toys, holds her down when she is trying to walk or crawl and has been so emotional. He crys about everything. I think that Brad and I just need to spend more one on one time with him maybe let grandma watch Hailey more and do things with just caiden. Since she has been born we have done that only 3 times! Were going to try this and hopefully that will give him what he needs. We hate seeing him sad or feeling like something is wrong with him.
Well were off to the park (our daily visit) but here are some pictures of me and the kids yesterday playing

There are many choices when it comes to choosing what you want to write about so you can actually choose one that you have experienced or that you can really relate to. This is one of the things that I really like about PayPerPost, I feel that when I'm reading something that someone had written they are giving the real facts about it and not just doing it to get paid.
I heard about this though other blogs and from a couple of my friends who do this.
With the money that I get from doing this I plan on spending it online:-) There are so many cute things for my children that I've seen lately and now I will be able to get them with my own money!!!
I highly recommend for anyone to take advantage of such a fun and easy opportunity!

We can't believe that a whole year has already passed since she was born. It doesn't seem that long ago that i took this picture...
Look how tiny and precious she looked! Now if she's in that seat i can't get the snaps to fit around her!
We had a fun weekend, friday we took Hailey out to eat for her birthday, she got a banana pie dessert and ate almost the whole thing. Saturday we had her party out at my moms house. We had about 50 people show up. Andrea and her little boy Taite were able to come, they are visiting this weekend from NC, it was really nice to see her again. (Caleb was napping so he wasn't able to come). Sunday we went to Andrea and Travis' old church were Travis was the youth pastor, they had a huge celebration for i think there 50th anniversary. Ther was all kinds of things for the kids to do, jumpy things, rock climbing walls, cotton candy, sno-cones - Caiden loved it. Andrea let me wear Hailey in her Mei Tai (i think) It was SO nice. Hailey always needs to be held and it was nice to be able to hold her and still do what i needed to do, i'll have to get that picture from Andrea i forgot to get one with my camera.
Hailey's party went really good and she seemed to have a good time. Caiden helped her blow out her candle and then she dove into her cake. We got her her own individual little cake and let her do what she wanted with it, by the time she was done she had more up her nose and in her eyes than in her mouth, but it was cute!
I made one slideshow for the whole weekend.

|Your True Love's Name Is|
Tuesday, July 10, 2007
She took her first steps friday! I was holding her up and she kept acting like she was trying to move her feet so i let her go and she took 2 steps, later I had Caiden sit in front of her and hold his hands out to her and she took 6 steps to him! She seems to take more steps when she is walking to Caiden. He gets a kick out of that.
She's still pretty wobbley but she'll just keep standing herself back up, she gets so excited that it makes it hard for her to keep going.
I can't believe my baby is already walking!!!

The girls on the left end of the bottom row are twins too! They run in my family, there are 2 more sets of twins but they couldn't make it.
After the parade we all went back to my aunt house and went swimming and had a cookout. I think i'm still in a food coma from all the food there! Caiden wore himself out swimming and had to show EVERYONE there how he can dive now. He had fun.
This was Hailey's first time watching the fireworks and i couldn't believe how much she liked them. I remember Caidens first year we had to leave the area because he was so scared of them, but she was pointing to them and clapping and smiling, i caught her expression during the grand final...
Isn't that adorable. She was so good all day and even took a 2 hour nap (i couldn't believe it, i had to keep checking her to make sure she was okay)
I hope my children remember these childhood memories forever!
