Baby Boy


I am so glad to tell you that our new Baby Boy "Collin John O'Hara" Has arrived! He is perfect weighing in at 7lbs. and 15 oz. He came out screaming like a mad cat, but we haven't heard that since! He is very calm and takes all the noise with a grain of salt! The girls are so in love with him, adn they can't keep their lips off. especially Cydnee! She is overly helpful and alot of the time it is without warning! Carlee is soo helpful she will do anything I ask her, and keeps telling me how happy she is that we are all home from the hospital and that our family isn't apart anymore! I think she took it harder than me even! I am getting a little sleep every now and then but I kindof expected the first 2 weeks to be the hardest, like with the girls!! We are all trying to figure out what the new normal is, and we may never know. The one thing that we do know is that our little Family is complete! I am going to post some pics, and may not have entries but at least you can watch all the kids grow as we do!! Love, Carrie

The night before Collin Arrived!



The night before Collin was born we had to do a couple of things that we had done with both the girls! I had my friend Evie come over to stay the night and then she stayed with the girls and brought them up to see us after he was born. She stayed with Carlee too when Cydnee was born! I adore her and so do the girls! We also had to do some redneck belly shots just to show the final results as Chris says "How huge I got!" Which doesn't really bother me because I know that he gained a few extra pounds with me this time around! HAAHA Also the girls got to join in and show their bellies! I am so grateful for Chris, and the fact that he is involved in our family life and how much he loves us and takes care of us! Of course as with every pregnancy I didn't really start to freak out until right before time to go to bed the night before surgery! Why do we do that? anyways here are a few momento pics.! Love, Carrie

A day in the life of me!

Today we met at Chic fil a for lunch with my cousins wife Traci who I had the shower for, because she is going in tomorrow to have the little guy!! Pretty awesome how it works these days!! I am thinking oh my goodness this is me in 6 weeks! wow! Anyways it was good to let her see only a glimpse into her future, by having the girls there asking for fries not fruit with their meal, and cydnee wanted sprite not lemonade. Then Carlee wouldn't come down from the top of the play area until I told her no ice cream cone on the way home! I had also told them we would go to Barnes and noble and read books so after lunch that's where we went in carlee in search of shark & Dinosaur books and Cydnee looking for any shelf they had really neat displayed books so she could mess it up, or any kind with a musical instrument like a piano or a flute! HA!HA! We read books for over an hour and then picked 1 bargain book aout and headed home for a much needed nap, but after we got to the car and everyone buckled in safe and secure Little Cydnee loohoo says I have to go potty. So out of the car we all get and go back in to the bathroom and back to the car and back through the drive through @ chic fila for the ice cream and finally home! Then it was down for a nap and then up for My cousin Jessica's little boy Coltons 2nd Birthday! Kids running everywhere and I am just trying to make sure my 2 stay alive and once again I find myself thinking "just add another one to the mix!"

Cats and dogs

I am writing this because I had a funny conversation with my mom that I was wondering if anyone else was weird enough to have! We were talking about my girls and how different their personalities are and we decided that Carlee is just like a cat, and Cydnee is just like a puppy! Carlee is more like I will rub on you and be sweet and kind, but only when I want to. and don't say anything about it or I may scratch your eyes out! And when she wants something she will act like she doesn't but then in a very Smart way she will manipulate the situation to where the other person is begging her to take whatever it is that she actually wants anyways! and then on a typical day when she wakes up she wants a cup of chocolate milk and her blanket and cartoons and then don't bug her for at least an hour or it wont be pretty! And it is like misery that we have to go anywhere and we really have to talk it up and then there may still not be any excitement! She could stay home all the time! Then there is Cydnee is so much Like a puppy that she first thing in the morning comes in saying "Good morning sweet carlee". Then she comes to my room and says come on get out of bed mommy the sun is up!! Then she wants orange juice, dry fruit loops and to watch Franklin, the cartoon and like a puppy with a short attention span that will last about 10 minutes then I Will just lay back down for a second and she will come in and ask where are we going today? And if I don't answer she will get on top of me and start kissing me to get me up or get right in my ear and wisper everything she wants really loudly! Then asks can I wear a dress and if I say yes she will start this crazy happy dance and if I say no she will say OK then for a nap? Meaning can she change into a fancy dress for her nap! Then its like a puppy, whats in my lunch pail? I will tell her and after every little item whether its turkey sandwich or slops she will say OOOOh that sounds delicious! Carlee will take one look in the lunch pail and not say a word, she will just take out what she doesn't want and go to the cabinet and replace it with what she does want! Cydnee can't go near the Bathtub in the morning without stripping down and says I am stinkeeeey! Even though she took a bath just before bed! and if I am in the tub she says I am just going to stick 1 toe in, but always ends up all the way in splashing everything!! They are both so different but such a joy to sit back and watch as they mature and get bigger! I hear all the time it flies by so fast so enjoy it! And the truth is I couldn't enjoy it more! Also I am so exhausted when they are home but then on the days that they go to mothers day out I pick them up early because I miss them!! They are so precious!!

The writer is a City girl from L.A. that fals in love with an Oklahoma cowboy. Anyways she has won one of time magazines top blogs! It is an awesome read and she has several different sections to it!! TO me it would seem like a full time job, but she loves it!! also one of her sections is what she says like a harlequin romance novel about the true love affair of how she and her husband fell in love!! Its something like " From Black High Hells to Tractor Wheels". Also in her spare time she home schools her 4 kids, and somehow cooks, and dables in photography and is awesome at it!! You should check it out!!

Tracis Shower

Today we had a million things to do for My cousin Jonathon's wife Traci's 1st Baby shower. It is next Sunday!! I am having it at my house and we are expecting about 50 people!! It has been really fun, because it's something to keep my focus off myself, and how tired, huge, exhausted, cranky and did I mention tired I am?? So today first things first, Mom and I started at the donut shop for sausage rolls and Sprinkle donuts for the girls!! What everyone needs to start the day off right!!??
Then it was to Ludgers Cakes. If you haven't tried them they are great!! We ordered 2 round cakes one chocolate brown with Baby blue polka dots and one White with Chocolate brown Polka dots. We also did a cake tasting while we were there to make sure they hadn't changed their famous recipe!! (They didn't!) Then we went to the woodland hills mall to play on the indoor playground since its back to 42 degree weather here in Tulsa!! Mom gave each of the girls a 1 dollar bill to buy a cookie or candy at the candy store, if they didn't act too animalistic at the mall. The journey started off great. We went into James Avery to buy Cydnee a Charm bracelet for her birthday and that's where it all started to go crazy. While we were paying Cydnee wondered out into the lobby by the doors and I guess could not withstand the urge to put her crisp one dollar bill into the 3 minute massage chair. Yes, so the n I had to wait 3 minutes for her to get her massage before we could move on, which turned into A crying fit because then she didn't have her dollar for candy!! Do you think she went without?? NOOOO!! Of course grammee just so happened to have 1 more dollar bill! Imagine that!! So we played, ate and headed home for nap time!

Oh what a beautiful day!!

Today as a great day we got up early and had breakfst like normal and then took Carlee to school. We have started a new chart system where she gets a sticker when she goes in without crying and then when she gets 10 stickers we are going to chuckee cheeses. She has been doing great so far! She needs 1 more sticker tomorrow and we are planning the date!! SO anywyas she went in with all smiles!! She is getting so big learning the days of the week, Months and counting up to fifty!
Cydnee is doing good too! She gets stickers on days that she doesn't even go to school somehow??!! She wants to wear skirts or dresses with panty hose everyday, which usually happens at some point in the day. She will be 3 years old on The 14th of March, and when you ask her what she wants she will tell you High Heels and not plastic ones!! Anyways, Cydnee and I went to moms and went to GG and poppa dicks and played in their yard and then we picked up carlee and headed straight for the park in Casies neighborhood! We played with Eli, and then went home and went to the backyard and jumped on the trampoline. It wan't until after that Carlee comes squealing to me and says "momma the most wonderful thing ever in the whole year". I said what's that? She said " I just found the squirmiest worm I have ever seen!" ANd so then we finally went in for dinner and a bath around 6:30pm and I am exhausted!!
