And we're back!!!

So, I started this Blog right after Riley was born so that I could have a wa to keep all our friends and family up to date on what is going on in the life of the Sipe family! Turns out that was about the time when I stopped having time to do anything...even take a shower! :) 
It's now been almost 2 years and things are finally starting to slow down just a little,so i'm going to try to start blogging again so that you all can check out what we have going on! 

Riley is now 22 months old and will be turning two on October 8th. I can't believe how much she is growing up. She is super smart and talking a lot now. She has such a great little personality and is really a joy. She absolutely loves to dance and cannot contain herself if you turn on the radio! Its just hilarious. As most of you know it hasn't been all roses and tulips with her though. She has definitely given us a run for our money but she has gotten so much better over the last few months. She is finally sleeping through the night most of the time and she is starting to be much easier to deal with during the daytime as well. She will start preschool this year along with Carter and I'm sure she is going to have her world rocked for the first few weeks just like Carter did last year. But i'm sure she will eventually love it!

Carter will soon be turning 3 on September 11th and is getting so big. She is such a sweet little girl and is really starting to get into all things "girly"! She loves baby dolls and loves to dance and play mommy. She will hopefully start a dance class for 3 and 4 year olds this year and I know she is going to love it. She will go to preschool again this year and has been bugging us all summer about when she gets to go back to school. She became fully potty trained this summer and started sleeping in a "big girl bed"! I can't believe she is already about to be three though!

Brayden has the biggest news of all! Yesterday he started his very first day of Kindergarten at Lake Carolina Elementary. He loved it and was so excited to go back again today. Of course I cried after we dropped him off yesterday b/c I just can't believe how fast he is growing up. I know he is going to do great and love every minute of it though. His teacher already told me how sweet he is and how well he listens and follows directions. He really is a sweet kid and such a great big brother to his sisters. 
As most of you know we are in the process of refinancing our current home and will be renting it back out come October and are planning to buy a new home and be moving to Irmo in the very near Future. We've been under a lot of stress trying to make this happen but we are very excited that we are finally getting the opportunity. I am sad that we are going to have to move Brayden to a new school so soon after starting but I know that he will be fine and transition well. Hopefully we will have more definite news on this in the next couple of weeks! 

I hope to be able to keep up the blog this time so we will see how it goes! Now the girls just went down for a nap so it's time for me to go squeeze in my shower! See I told you things are slowing down now. I finally have time to shower during the day! :)
