Baby Rieck

Well he is here!!! Baby boy Rieck decided to make his much anticipated entrance into the world today at 1:00pm! I am going to leave all the details up to Kalli to tell (this is Lacy), but I am here to let everyone know that everything went GREAT and mommy and baby couldnt be doing any better! He weighed in at a whopping 7lb 4oz and 19 1/2in long! By far Kalli's biggest baby yet! He is absolutely adorable and we could not be happier for their cute little family! Kalli's labor went really great and there were no problems! He is a healthy little boy with some big lippers and big hands and feet!:) Who knew Kalli's teeny tiny little body could hold a baby of that size!?!? Presli and Madden love their new baby brother and can't wait to have mommy and brother home! We love all of them so much, and can't wait to spoil this little stinker rotten just like the rest of them! As far as a name goes...they are still going with BABY RIECK! Im sure by tomorrow they will have made a decision...but it's been a hard one! I will let this little video do the rest of the talking so you can see just how perfect their day was! CONGRATS RIECKS..We love you!

World Cup Soccer

Joe got Madden dressed this morning and I came in the room and the two of them had their soccer jersies on ready for the game!! Joe had a jersey from Brazil and Joe's mom brought the boy grandkids a jersey back from Uruguay when she went! The two of them looked so cute I had to take a picture!

Madden-16 Months Old!

At the end of June Madden turned 16 months! I seriously cannot believe my baby boy is growing up so fast! He was the hardest baby and constantly cried and whined up until he was about 13 months old and since then he has turned into the best little thing ever! He is always so happy and I could just sit and squeeze and kiss on him all day every day! Here are a few things to remember about Madden at 16 months old...

*He LOVES cars and balls. I can't tell you how many times a day all I hear is.. "Ball, Ball, Ball, Ball, Ball!" It's hilarious walking through the produce section. He thinks every circle shape fruit and veggie is a ball!!
*He loves his big sister. He follows her every where and copies everything she does!
*He loves his milk! We have to have him eat atleast half of any meal before he gets his drink!
*He is my great little eater! He loves everything!
*He has been sleeping in his big boy bed for 1 month and transitioned so easy!
*He repeats everything. I was worried he was going to be forever talking, but he catches on so quick.
*Words he uses often are...more, milk, again, ah mmm (ah oh), all done, car, ball, truck, thanks, sick, up, amen, shoes, dog, cat, cow, belly, baby, mmm hhh (for yes), han (hand), cheese, teat (treat), hot
*He says thanks for everything! Love that he has manners at this age!
*He is so good to fold his arms and not eat until the entire prayer is said!
*He loves to wear shoes...his, mine, Joe's, Presli's...anyone's!!
*He is such a snuggler! He loves giving luvs and kisses!
*He loves to grab my family's family picture and have me point and ask who everyone is!
*Points to his head, ears, nose, tongue, piggies, belly
*When we are driving in the car he will hold his hand out and say over and over again "han, han, han", until someone holds his hand!!
*He dances anytime any music turns on!
*He loves to swim. We have to watch him carefully because he has no fear and will just dive in at any given moment!
*He loves to give 5 and knuckles!!
*He loves to jabber!!
*Whenever I put him in his carseat he says, "!"

There is so much more I could write about this cute little thing, but I may never stop! He is so much fun and brings us so much happiness!!!

4th of July...a little late!

We had such a fun 4th of July weekend. On Friday night we met some friends at the park and ate dinner and played water balloon volleyball! We had tons of fun and the kids loved having friends to play with.
On Saturday morning we went to Joe's parents for a BBQ. We ate and spent most of the afternoon in the pool....which is always fun.
Later Saturday afternoon we went to my parents for another BBQ, more swimming and fireworks! The kids had so much fun watching fireworks and doing sparklers. Presli is in a big time dancing and posing stage, so she was the center of attention dancing and striking poses with sparklers in her hands! She loved being in the spotlight! Madden loved the sparklers too and was amazed at each firework that went in the air!
We had a great weekend and it was so much fun to be surrounded by so many of our family and friends!!

Main Street Park

I took the kids to the Main Street Park the other day and they had such a great time. It's the perfect place for Madden because there are only so many places to go! We just went by ourselves so Presli was so good to play with Madden! They are great little friends and he follows her everywhere!

A Weekend With Nana

Last weekend Joe and I had to make a quick trip up north for a farewell. We decided since it would be such a fast trip, it would be better for the kids to stay home. They stayed with Nana most of the time, and spent a few hours at Grandma and Grandpa Rieck's. Saturday afternoon Nana took them to Barnes and Noble for storytime. They met Lala, NayNay, Korver and Titan there. We were told that Madden was hilarious..thinking he needed to be the center of attention and point at all of the pictures! I guess between Madden and Korver, they thought they should be in the spotlight! Presli had a great time!

On Saturday night Nana had the three grandkids over. They had a Toy Story party and sleepover! Nana bought them all matching Buzz Lightyear pajamas! They all ate mac and cheese, chocolate milk in their Toy Story cups and slept on the floor in their Toy Story sleeping bags. (Presli's was a Princess one!) Nana said they all had such a great time...which I wouldn't doubt...she spoils them all ROTTEN!!! I think all 3 of them would choose to be with Nana over their parents any day! Thank you Nana for watching the kids and for giving them such a fun weekend! They love you to pieces!!
