Sweet Pea is two weeks old today. This picture was taken yesterday, but I don't think it matters that much. She weighs 6 lbs 11 oz so she has gone past her birth weight-weighs now what Rosebud did at birth. She also has her first cold, thanks to her big sister. Daddy also has it, and is returning to work tonight feeling quite yucky. With Sweet Pea sick neither of us is getting much sleep.
I took a picture of her sleeping in her crib. She only naps there and only sometimes as Rosebud can't be left alone with her. She not only shares her germs, but her books and dollies and anything else that isn't nailed down. She shares it right into the crib with Sweet Pea.
I took a similar picture of Snug when he was a few days old in his crib (same crib, just it was his at the time).
And also one of Little Monkey Man (known on the blog as Baby J back then). I also took one of Rosebud, I KNOW I did...but I can't find it. She was wrapped in a pink blanket.
Anyway, none of them can deny each other as siblings. Other than three with cold and three waiting to GET that cold...we are doing pretty good. Life with four kids is very hectic right now but we are so blessed to have these kiddos and we thank God daily for them. I'm hoping the boys settle down some after Christmas, they are both very wild. We'll see!
Snug loves life. At eight years old, he is a big brother four times over, a role he takes very seriously. He loves to read, swim, run, play Legos, and hear stories. He is sensitive to the needs of others and has a very kind heart.
Little Monkey Man
Watch out world! This middle child is not about to be left out of anything! Formally known on this blog as "Baby J" he is a baby no longer. His sense of adventure is downright dangerous and he will push your buttons all day long. This six year old is very generous and has a sweet smile that will light up a room. Don't let him use his "eyes" on you or you may fall under his spell!
Four years old and quite the little lady. Not sure what we'll do with all of her emotions, but loving watching her grow. She loves ballet, preschool, and church and all of her friends-both real and stuffed variety.
She's three! Hard to believe how fast time goes by. She's my girl and she's demands lots of my love. Growing, changing, and making us all laugh (and scream...not gonna lie), this little one is so precious.
Oh this baby. Easiest one, cheeriest one. Laid back, happy, sweet.
