I never imagined how much more difficult free time would be to come by going from 3 kiddos to 4. Oh, but it is!
Daddy with his girls before Halloween 2011
Although, Shelby makes it so much easier than it could be.
Oh, my sweetheart, how I do adore this smile
She is our precious, precious baby girl.
The girlies posing out front last winter in their hats we brought them from our trip to Canada
This past summer, pics out front all smiles and laughs :)
Sweet baby, even on a long car ride! With her Blue.
Once we got there, it was SO MUCH FUN! The girls loved it!
I am in full swing planning the girls birthday party extravaganza! The girls' 3rd birthday and Shelby's first birthday are only 11 days apart so we are having a combined birthday party for everyone.
Addie, sweet with a little sass ;)
Reagan showing off her necklace
Baylee, talking, talking, talking...she is always chatting up a storm
They also love Dora, Diego and movies. We should have known they'd love movies just like Mommy and Daddy do. Their favs: The Lorax, Penguins (Happy Feet 2), Toy Story (1, 2 or 3), Monsters (Monster's Inc.) & Froggies (The Leapfrog Learning Series).
Cuddled up in their blankets from Grammy watching a movie
They also ask to go swimming about once a day and to the beach about once a day, or a million if you are Baylee.
This morning we told the girls we were starting baths and Baylee loudly shouted over everyone in the bathroom, "OK! Here's how it's gonna be! We are taking baths.....and then we are going to the BEACH!" Oh.My.Goodness. Sassss-a-frassss! Brent and I died laughing because she was so adamant about it. Then Brent asked her, "Baylee, are you in charge?" and she said, "No, Addie is." LOL I guess now we know who is pulling the strings behind the scenes.
Oh, and of course, the girls adore their Grammy, Pop, Gran and Grandaddy so much, we talk about them all day long.

Shelby, Easter 2012 - CUTIE PIE!
My girls found some of Grammy's old hats ;)
Such a sweetie!
Shelby's favorite thing to do is to climb into the pantry cabinet and play with all of the crystal light packets she has strewn about in the bottom. I am constantly having to rush over to close the cabinet while I am cooking to make sure she doesn't rush in there and start chewing on those packets. She broke through one the other day and Brent was laughing because she got the most disgusted look on her face...probably the lemonade.
Trying to keep up with the girls...patiently waiting until she can jump in there
The girls finally got into "big girl" beds 2012
Exploring like Dora in their Olivia explorer outfits LOL
Brent and I - 6 years of marriage, 4 kids and a night out to celebrate my friend's graduation from SMU Law School
Yes, the are obsessed with heels...naturally
Love this pic of my handsome hubby! 30 years young!
I couldn't get him the Jeep he has always wanted, so he got a Jeep on a cake ;) Best I could do this year
More Shelby, I can't get enough
Shelby playing at the indoor splash park with Grammy on our trip to Colorado Summer 2012
What? Is there something on my face?

So I'm making the commitment to myself (and my guilty Mom-conscience) and also to Addison, Reagan, Baylee and Shelby Dale.
And these cuties!
