In an attempt to document the past few months, I thought I'd go back and share some photos of "firsts" in our family.

Kelsey had her first chocolate facial at her 4th birthday - A Princess SPA party!!

All the boys watching their first Super Bowl together!

Collin's first rice cereal -- fed by his big sister!

Collin's first smiles!! We all do our best to get as much of these as possible all day long!

Carter's first (and only??) Chuckee Cheese birthday party!!! He was so excited that he... well that he peed in his pants (literally).. what a memory!

Collin's first introduction to sports. "Uh, Dad, really? I'm just 3 months old - give me some time!"

Collin's first sit in the Bumbo seat. "Am I doing good here mom? Really?"

First time seeing Santa Claus.
First photo shoot - all tuckered out!

First time Carter gets to play basketball with his three favorite men - Daddy, Pop-Pop, and Pops!

First pillow talk with big brother.
Collin's first bath - oh how they love those baths in the first weeks.
Collin's first time peeing on me in the bath.

First lost tooth!!

A Family of Five

Yes I know -- in typical 'third child' fashion, I'm posting the arrival of our newest family member four months late. Shame on mommy ... but there is no shame in celebrating this little life! Collin Adams was born October 27th weighing in at 7lbs 1 oz. He's been a stud ever since!

Pumpkin Patch 2011

Quite the "posers" for pictures this year -- it was funny. I think you go from not getting ANY shots with your child sitting still around 1 or 2 yrs old ... to all of the sudden finding yourself saying, "that's cute but why don't you just go play and look around (aka look natural!)" ha! : )

Making sure Baby Collin feels the love!

They truly are best friends. I can't tell you how much that swells my heart with joy!

A Baby "Sprinkle" for Collin

I must say, this little guy (*named Collin Adams .. NOT Parker Adams in the previous post... that name journey was a rough road between mommy and daddy and one we don't want to revisit. We are happy with Collin Adams and if anyone has objections or a comment other than "that sounds perfect" then please keep them to youselves!) had a special celebration and truly mommy didn't need that much at all for his arrival. Especially after neighbors and friends literally came out of nowhere and have been dropping items at my doorstep ... literally - bassinets, strollers, clothes, etc. So grateful for generosity!!

Just spending time at an awesome restaurant (Chicken and the Egg) with sweet friends was perfect!

Summer 2011

Seriously?? I let almost a half of a year go by without updating my blog. Pardon me!! I did want to post some pics to recap our summer. I'm going to blame the spring days on the third little Galbreath on his way .... my first trimester YUK had me down and out for this past spring. I'm now over 6 months along and we simply can not WAIT for Parker Adams Galbreath to arrive in November!!
As for our summer days -- we got our beach trip in early this summer. It was a blast! The kids are now old enough for me to actually SIT and talk to my husband for a full conversation on the beach uninterupted ... OR even read a book while they play (gasp!) Trust me, I'm cherishing every second of these days because they are shortlived for a while. Carter was happy as can be if he was either playing evening baseball on the beach or fishing for sharks at sunrise with daddy. Kelsey occupied herself just fine in the sand or especially in the pool.

Truly, our summer can be summed up in one word though - BASEBALL!!
I feel like we went from 5 yrs old to 10 yrs old in one summer. All Stars was intense - we were literally at the ballpark for 5-6 days out of the week. Kelsey could not have been better about it... begging to go to every single practice. A true ballpark rat : ) Carter was the only 5 yr old that played up on the Farm ball AllStar B team. He also never complained one second and would be at the park every night if he had his way.

Birthday FUN!!!

I get hit with the double whammy every year with two birthdays that are 1 week apart. It's not the hassle of planning two parties that I mind, but rather the realization that BOTH of my children are growing up! So Happy #5 to Carter-man and Happy #3 to Princess Kelsey! They are truly our world!!
