Sorry Dad!! This ones for you :) I promise to start updating more frequently, girl scouts honor. This may get long.
I look at this picture and it totally breaks my heart. I feel like yesterday she was a squishy newborn baby and now shes 9 going on 15. She is so beautiful and so intelligent. She gets A's and B's, and recently received an award at school for having the highest test scores in English/Language Arts in her grade for the California STAR testing. I have NO idea where she obtained this intellect, certainly not from me OR her father(hey, I'm just sayin! She definetly inheritied it from you dad!) but I am so grateful for it. She loves school and learning new things. She wants to be a marine biologist when she grows up and she's certainly on the right path.
She is the biggest tomboy ever. Now that I definetly know she got from her mama! This girl refuses to wear pink, and will rock a t-shirt, holed up jeans and a pair of vans before ever stepping foot into a dress. She'll trade the barbies and playing dress up for a book about fairytales or mythical things; think dungeons and dragons and unicorns and mermaids or a good ol' video game.
Angelyna is my best friend. We have such a great relationship and she's so open to talking to me about anything and everything, even the most uncomfortable of subjects, but I am thrilled that we're able to have that open line of communication. She has such a good head on her shoulders and always makes good decisions for herself, even when the peer pressure is being packed on. I envy her courage to stand up for herself and her beliefs at such a young age and not caring about what everyone else is doing or whats "cool".
Oh, Ciarra. I think this picture says it all. If I had to think of one word to describe her, the first word that pops into my head is D-I-V-A. This girl has spunk and attitude and style for days. She is the complete opposite of Angelyna in everyway possible. She is all about dressing up in dresses and heels and all the accessories. She picks her OWN clothes because she knows what she likes and I dont have the "right" style. Her words. Real talk. Ouch. She loves flipping through fashion magazines and getting manis and pedis.
Unfortanetly, Ciarra does not have the same attitude towards school that Angelyna does. For her, school is all about socializing. She is popular and she loves every second of it. Her career goal? So You Think You Can Dance. True story.
Ciarra is very outspoken. She will not hesitate to tell you exactly how she feels about something or someone, wether you want to hear it or not. Oh, and she is ALWAYS right. Always. And will argue with you about it until she is blue in the face. She is extremely protective of her sisters. She is a definitely a leader. She has the biggest heart and amazing music taste(now THAT I will take credit for.....haha)
Stormie is the most sweetest, beautiful little girl && the only one of my daughters to look anything like me! In fact, she's pretty much my clone but a way prettier version. She has a smile that will light up the darkest room. She has a heart of gold. She loves to sing and dance. ALOT. You can always find her singing and dancing away, its so adorable. She is obsessed with Miley Cyrus(WHYYYYYY?! haha). She pretty much always has the microphone on Rockband lol She loves to play computer games, she pretty much lives on barbie.com and girlgames.com.
She is a really independent little girl. She is totally content in finding things to entertain herself with, by herself, which I adore. She is a total daydreamer. Shes a girly girl and loves to dress up, just like her big sister Ci!
She's in the 1st grade now and loves school, not so much the homework part.
She is really outgoing and loves attention. She's the cuddlebug and is always telling me how much she loves me or curling up on the couch with me to watch a Disney princess movie((our favorites)).
Aka "The Hurricane".
Rylan is one of a kind. She is the most amazing little girl I have ever known. She is SO freaking smart, it blows your mind the things she says and knows. She has always been really advanced for her age, and while that IS awesome, it can also be a recipe for disaster. My family && I call her "The Hurricane" because it takes this girl 10 minutes to destory the house. She has no attention span whatsoever and so she finds ways to entertain herself, which usually involves doing things she KNOWS she isnt supposed to do.
She is HILARIOUS. She says the most off the wall things and keeps me laughing all day long. She is strong willed. And insanely gorgeous(Shaynes clone, huh dad!!). She loves, LOVES art. She is so creative and its one of the things I adore most about her. On the downside, she has a tendancy to draw on anything and everything, and my once white walls are now scribbled with her drawings of monsters and flowers and self portraits.
Its hard to believe she'll start school this summer, time has flown by so fast.
And I am SO excited that her hair is finally growing back after the HORRIBLE clippers episode. For those who dont know, my brother left his hair clippers on the bathroom counter and Rylan decided it would be a fantastic idea to use them on HER hair. Thank GOD she wasnt hurt, but unfortanetly, the majority of her hair did not survive the incident. Which is so sad since she had the most beautiful, goldilocks blonde curls.
My baby. Mayson is youre DREAM child. She is so perfect. She is the most laid back, chill little girl. She rarely ever cries or fusses or whines. She is ALWAYS smiling and laughing. She talks a mile a minute, although you can only catch about every other word.
This baby girl LOVES music. She dances her little butt away all day and night. And shes got moves, let me tell you!
Mayson is the light of my life. Maybe thats because she's my last child so theres that "special" connection between us. I could cuddle and hold her and squeeze her forever. Shes my nighttime cuddly buddy, yes, I co-sleep still!
She is so gorgeous! She has the most amazing eyes. Her left one has this huge brown freckle in it, its so unique. Its funny because she doesnt look like me or her dad, but moreso a combination of all her sisters put together.
Life has been good. Really good, for the most part. I feel like I finally have some peace in my previously normally chaotic life, and its been refreshing. Not to say I dont have those days every now and then :)
I need to go to the doctor pretty soon. I'm pretty sure my anemia is, once again, out of control. I increased my iron intake almost triple the amount, but the disgusting, massive bruises are back and I know that means its time a for a trip back to the doctor. I wish I could use not having time as an excuse, but really, I'm just scared and dont want to deal with it. Oh dad, I can totally see your angry/worried face right now!! Dont worry, I'll do it. Soon. I just cant afford to be sick and deal with that shit.
The new year is here and I'm pretty excited about it!! I'm going to attempt to test the waters of the job market because I am so over being broke all the time. I have to sign up for school again here pretty soon. It'll be nice to be able to get out of the house everyday and socialize. And of course make steps towards doing something productive with my life. I'm going to Phoenix next month to see my amazing friend Matt. I am seriously counting down the days. Then in May, 2 of my favorite people are tying the knot in Vegas, on my birthday weekend, hey heyy!! That will be LOVE. So many good things to look forward to in 2011 and I am so ready for it.
Anyways, my eyes hurt from staring at this screen for so long so I'm going to curl up and watch Inception and then finish my book.
Speaking of, if you haven't read it, you must. Its a poetry book, so you have to like poetry, obviously, but it is AMAZING. I've probably read it a billion times, but I never grow tired of it.
♥our lips must always be sealed
