Birthdays, Sickness, and more - Oh my!

January 2012 was a crazy month for us.  We had a new baby, it was birthday festivus in the Shelton house, and RSV made it's way through the entire family.

I know they are even older now, but I can't believe my big girl turned 3!  She thinks she is 10, but she will always be our little "big girl!"  The baby was sick at home with RSV with Aunt Tammy, and we had a blast celebrating at the Ark in Coppell with lots of friends and family.  What a difference a year makes.

Greyson turned FIVE, and he is still the most tender hearted, sweet boy I know.  What a great big brother he is for his little sisters, and what a blessing he is for us. We also had a new member of the Wilhite family arrive right on Greyson's birthday!  Cole Trevor Wilhite made his grand debut, and he will forever share his special birthday with my sweet boy (exactly five years apart).  He is such a sweet little chunk, and we love him!

Party time!

And no post would be complete without some chubby Viv pics.  She is walking and talking now, and it's hard to believe that she was ever this small.  

The RSV fiasco.  We had a family trip planned to go to Broken Bow with a bunch of our friends, and then the baby came down with a bad case of RSV.  James was SUPER DAD, and he took the older kids who were on the mend on the trip without Viv and I.  It was an adventure and one that I was so sad to miss. Our dear friends, the Roberts, moved away that Spring, and little did we know it would be our last big group trip.  Pictures of new adventures to come!

Christmas 2011 - WHAT???

Yeah.  You read that right.  This is Christmas 2011.  I don't remember it.  I was in a fog.  I had a newborn.  It's been over a year, and I'm just now revisiting it.  I DO remember that it was wonderful, it was full of surprises, and it was our first Christmas as a family of 5.  We'll see if I can get my act together someday and keep up with this.
