Bumps and Boots

Today started out pretty good.  My lovely friend Carrie came over early this morning to help me with the kiddos while I took Rosie to the doctor to be fitted for her Bebax boots.  The boys love Carrie and I think she is pretty fond of them too!  It was a huge help to have her with us at the doc's office.  Doc was nice and fast.  He adjusted her boots, slipped them on, and then gave me the rundown needed until we check back in with him in a week.  Rose is supposed to wear them as much as possible day and night.  He did say to give her periodic breaks to wiggle those cute toes of hers.  Hopefully, these will fix her metatarsus adductus and we won't have to go the casting route!

After the doc, we ran to Moser's to check out name tags.  That was a good trip.  I found all I needed and more!  It was attempting to leave Moser's that it all went crazy.  Apparently, I parked in front of a VERY big pole.  Like the pole that holds up the VERY big Moser's sign.  Well, despite the efforts of my trusty backup camera, I smashed into that bad boy and wrecked the back of the Pilot.  Glass was everywhere!  Thankfully no one was hurt.  I was also thankful that it was a pole and not another car.  Another blessing was that Carrie was with me.  It helped to have someone to laugh with and shed a tear or two.

I still had some errands to run... so, we headed to Harriet's to drop off some baby clothes, picked up Abby, stopped by Chick-Fil-A and then decided to skip WM and go home for a much needed nap!  Overall, not a bad day.  Very productive.  Just a tad more exciting than I was going for.
I'm thankful for an understanding husband.  I'm thankful we are all safe.  I'm thankful for in-laws with a truck to loan us!  I'm thankful for insurance and accident forgiveness.  Now, I just have to avoid all poles for five more years, otherwise our rates will go up!  After 5 years, they are fair game!

Baseball and Stats

Last night we joined Carrie and Patrick for a great Naturals game.

 Patrick scored us super sweet seats.  The boys had the best time watching the players warm up and play.

 They cheered and hollered at them, they yelled so loud we even got one to throw us a ball!

Since we were on the very front row we made the BIG tv a couple of times... famous!  It was hot, but once the sun went down it wasn't too bad.  The game got over pretty late, so we thought the boys would pass out on the way home.  WRONG!  They talked about the players and the game the entire way home.  They really liked the part when daddy caught the baseball.  That was a huge hit!
Rosemary had her appointment today.  
Weight: 16.04lbs
Height: 24.5
Doc seemed pretty happy with everything.  We have been referred to an orthopedic specialist to have her feet looked at.  They were bent so far in when she was born that they are having a little trouble straightening out.  Doc didn't notice at first, but I asked him to check a little closer and he decided to go ahead and have her looked at.  I hope it will be an easy fix that won't be painful for her.  Overall, she is healthy and just perfect in this Mommy's eyes.

Father's Day for a Dad of THREE

Let's start with a Father's Day shout-out to my Daddy, Michael Cook.  Thanks for being a straight shootin' yet loving dad.  You are the kind of dad that isn't afraid to show he loves his kid in public.  Kisses and hugs are always welcome and you tickle like a pro.  I am thankful that I can give you a call when I need you and you are there to listen and make me feel loved and important 600 miles away.  Happy Dad's Day Pop!

Now, Mr. Kale.  You are an amazing father to your three kiddos.  The Farmer Crew is truly blessed to have you as the head of our family.  Your loving nature and fun spirit help to make you the perfect role model for our three amigos.  I can't describe the looks on the faces of the boys when they hear your motorcycle pull into the garage after you've been at work all day.  They LOVE their Daddy.  And little Rose... well, she is wrapped as tight as can be around that finger of yours!  There is nothing sweeter than watching you and her during your nightly chats.  The way she looks at you is precious.  You are without a doubt loved over and beyond by your kids and wife.  Thank you for leading us in a Godly way and loving us unconditionally.
Today we started our Father's Day off with church and then we headed to breakfast at Iron Horse.  After that, we piddled around for a bit and then ventured to Lin's Garden for lunch.  Of course, after lunch was a BIG family nap, followed by fixing the motorcycle and washing it up.  The boys and Kale rode their bikes to Aunt Carrie's house for dinner with Mamie, Lolly, Pop, Jake, Carrie, and Kris.  After some family time we headed to Target and then Subaru.  Now, we are home.  The men are tucked in bed, Kale and Rose are having their time, and I'm about to finish the last chapter of my book!  A GREAT day was had by all in the Farmer Household!  Can't wait for another wonderful week :)  Enjoy the pictures...

12 Weeks... 3 MONTHS

Rose Pose is the big 3.  Three months that is!  She is such a doll.

So, here is the run down!
*The chunk wears 3-6 month clothes.. more on the 6 month side!
*She eats about 32oz a day.

*Rose naps off and on, but regular naps are becoming more established since she is more alert during the day.  She likes a long nap around 10:30-11until 1 and then another long nap from 3-5.
*She goes to bed around 9 and doesn't wake again until 5 in the MORNING!!!  This is so AWESOME :)
*Diapers are a size 2.

*We get to start cereal this month.  I'm pretty pumped.  I think she is going to love it.  Let's face it... the girl likes her chow!
*She is loving her bouncy seat.  She has just started reaching for the toys that hang down.  She also is fond of her Bumbo.  She looks like such a big girl sitting in it!

Her brothers are the BEST big bros EVER.  I'm so thankful to have such amazing kids.  Just so blessed.  Miss Kat comes back to work on Monday.  Maybe then she can take three month pictures of the little toot.
