Jillian's new bed!! :o)

Here's her new bed!

Little Angel to lil Devil in 1 week!?

So my sweet perfect little baby girl has become the spawn of satan in a little over 1 week. The terrible two's have hit. Full force like Hurrican Jillian (comparable to Katrina only a direct hit on the Miller house hold)

Let's recap, shall we?

Once upon a time there lived a sweet little baby girl named..oh we'll protect the not-so-innocent and call her "Jilly". She had 3 brothers a mom and dad that all adored her. One day she decided she could crawl out of bed and practiced this until she had it down pat. So loving mommy and daddy converted her bed to a toddler bed for her so she wouldn't fall out of her crib and smash her head open. Wasn't that thoughtful?

After a night of screaming, crying and acting like we were torturing her at a terrorits prison--she got used to her new bed. Mom, stupidly though, wow that wasn't too bad!! and gave herself a little pat on the back.

Fast forward to day 3 in her new bed. Mommy had a friend over and had put "Jilly" down for a nap. About an hour later "Jilly" came down stairs naked as the day she as born, with poop all over her leg and hiney--gross and highly embrassing...talk about lady-like!! good greif! So I scoop up the little poop monster and carry her upstairs only to realize she took off her diaper, and sat down to play....each place she sat in her room I could tell thanks to the little skid marks she left behind. (oh and the top of the stairs where she sat down before she headed down to show off her nakedness) So I throw her in the tub, scrub the dried poop off her and clean her room with carpet cleaner, clorox wipes and change her bedding. Put her back in bed where she falls asleep. GROSS! Mom decides to tell Dad about this little adventure, and biggest bubba over hears, him and dad have a great laugh over that....little does daddy know his turn is about to come around. *evil laugh*

Next day--Mommy and Jillian have MOPS!! YEAH!! Daddy stays home sick from work but when I get home I'm exhausted (I'm fighing sickness too) and I tell him I'm taking a nap. We put "Jilly" in bed and I hit the sack too. I wake up about 2 hours late to Daddy freaking out over the baby monitor. All you hear is "Oh my....." then silence. Shock has set in. The sweet little baby (who's conversion to lil devil is almost complete) has gotten the diaper pail open and found....you guessed it...a poopy diaper and thought her room (which is sweet and pretty) was too sweet for a little devil like herself and gave it a make over....she "repainted" Or should I said "re-pooped" her dresser, changing table, the carpet again and herself. Needless to say I stayed "sleeping" until it was all cleaned up...I tried really hard not to laugh when he retold me the story--I mean REALLY tried...but it didn't work.


Think because your little in this house your safe from Osama Bin-Jillian....WRONG!!! From coloring on homework to eating the chips out of your lunch no one is safe!! Her favorite past time has been waking up at 5:15 and crawling up onto Bailey's bunk....in the process she's managed to wake up both Aiden and Bailey. How could we have spawned such a little terror! By day she's back to hurricane Jillian, pulling movie down from the shelves, throwing toys out of her toy box, raiding the pantry or refusing to sit in her highchair. All this in a very tiring 7-10 days....no wonder I needed a nap!


shockingly I do have time for my other kids. Christian's first game was a loss against North Shary :o( 14-0. Christian got a sack though and played very well. Pictures below:

Aiden is coming along really well in school. He is very happy and go-lucky and his teacher says he's always smiling and just a joy to be around!

Bailey's enjoying learning the solar system! He's got a comic book project on it due friday, it'll be neat to see what he comes up with, he's pretty creative when the mood strikes him. Here's a picture of the two little one's taken this morning.

1 Little Monkey Crawling out of bed!

So yesterday Jillian crawled out of her crib at nap time (when it was over) and came walking out with a "Hi momma"...scared the beegeebee's outta me...think it was a one time fluke...WRONG! I put her to bed last night--she came walking out about 10 minutes later, went and sat on the couch and watched daddy play the Wii for a while until she was noticed. Scared the beegeebee's outta him! LOL

so she's a stinker---we'll keep the crib up a while longer but soon we'll be converting her crib to her toddler bed...my baby is growing up so quickly!!!

Here's some pictures of her my little ape girl...and I'm gonna try again to see if I can get the video to download on here too.

Been a While

Hi guys-

it's been a while since I've updated...ever have those weeks where you just find you woke up and suddenly it's time for bed and you just can't really pin-point where the heck the day went...welcome to my week!!

Ok on to the stuff you guys came here to read about--the KIDS!

Christian AKA... #37!

He was told Friday he would be starting Middle Line Backer at the game on Saturday morning. He was estatic!! He said to me after the "game" (you'll see why it's in " " in a moment) that he prayed he'd be starting MLB and his prayers were anwered. hee hee...YEAH! (we told him next time to be more specific and add..."and actually PLAY the game"

So we get up and get ready all decked out in our Sharyland Rattlers Shirts, get Christian to the school by 8:30 am.

We arrive around 9:45 for the 10:00 am game vs. Hidalgo...10:30 arrives...still no team to play!! Hidalgo never showed up, apparently they were playing Progresso!! Rattlers win by default :o) The kids were really disappointed and said they'd rather have played and lost than win by default :o( Poor guys...their next game is the 15th...so maybe they'll get to play. OH! did I mention they chage us admission to our own son's 7th grade game?! hahahhaa...a buck a person (including Jillian!) hahahaha...who knew!

STARTING @ Middle Line Backer--#37, Christian Miller!!

Christian and the defensive team as well as the coach!

Also, Christian was Captian of the defense on Saturday (I'm not sure if that's a whole year thing or a game to game thing) Here's some pictures of them warming up!! (he's number 37)

Waiting for his turn--mr. baggy pants! LOL


Bailey at Christian's "game"

Bailey went to a b-day party this weekend (actually we all did cuz it was a BBQ for everyone--it was really fun and we got to meet some new people...maybe we can survive here for a little longer! LOL)


Crazy Face Aiden! LOL

Last night Aiden got homework for the first time--it took him 3 hours!!! So I went to talk to his teacher today--again miscommunication runs amuck here--but staying involved is one way to help solve that. Tonight should go more smoothly...but having a kindergartener write out their numbers 1-100 was a little excessive, considering he didn't even know 2, 5 and 7---something he knows NOW!! (after mom and dad helped him)


Jillian's face is healing great...almost all gone now!! WOO HOO!! she's enjoying being home alone I think...she just roams around upstairs while I check my e-mail playing with her new kitchen and in her room reading books. Then we'll sit and read and play--she makes a mean cup of tea!! LOL...and it's a never ending supply!! So be warned if you take one sip you'll be drinking tea an hour later!!

She enjoyed going to christian's game..she loves looking for birds (and the moon)....so as long as there was a healthy supply of snacks and juice she was just fine :o)

Dad and Sissy

Mom and JilliFaith

As for Jay and I, we're just busy with work, home and kids. I'm trying to get my new webstite up and running, www.thelittlebowshoppe.com (nothing there yet!) and Jay's getting hsi fantasy football team up and running (LOL) other than that...nothing else to report!! Oh I got my hair cut! :o) Pictures of that later--maybe--I'm not thrilled with it..so you may have to just wait until it grows out a little

Oh we got the Wii this weekend for the kids (for Christmas) since Christian was with us we gave it to them to play all ready--hopefully they won't forget it's for CHRISTMAS! LOL...but here's some video of them playing as well as my crazy baby being herself!! ENJOY!! until next time...

For some reason I can't get another Video to show up--so I'll post that later!!! until then enjoy the one of the boys playing their Wii

Boys Boxing--BACK UP, BAILEY!!
