Jer is good at swinging the kids.  Jordan thought it was hilarious.





Lance, Devin, Jordan, Evelyn (who is a year older than Jordan... just doesn't look it.), Aubrey, Emma, and Ada.

I realized #3

Ada wanted to play school with me and the rest of the kids... she taught us about butterflies and metamorphosis. 


She invited each of us up to help with her with her lesson.


Cousin Taylor's birthday party

Our favorites!

Evelyn has claimed the Superman cape... my favorite is when she wears it with her Princess Anna costume... Super Anna!

Good Grandma





Jer built an awesome fort in the basement... so fun!


Fun at the park with cousins!

I realized #2

Valentines with the Robertson cousins.  Emily was out so that was fun to see her.

Our neighbor made our girls these cute dresses in exchange for some computer help... I think we got the better end of the bargain.  So cute.


Making Valentines boxes with the Wilcox cousins.

Seth was the bubble wrap master.... these guys went bazerk... loved it!

Cookies





I realized

I realized that I really haven't posted pictures off my camera for the last 3 months.  Awesome.  Here's a little catch up.

Anya's birthday party

These two jumped in and started playing with Arwen from the other side of the fence.

During our mornings

I love my mornings.  I get a little bit of time with each of my babies.

Get Ada up and ready for school.  Sometimes rushed and stressed, but she always comes back to me for a hug and a kiss before walking out the door.

Sam spends time every morning with a routine.  It lets him know what to expect every day and what he gets out of it.  He's been making some awesome progress in many areas because of it... Before any electronic anything he has to -get dressed -eat breakfast -brush teeth -comb hair -practice the piano or do a reading lesson with mom (did you know that he watches Ada reading and just picks up words while he watches her?) -a chore -exercise (he loves running the stairs and trying to use my elliptical).  He wakes up as early as he hears anyone awake in the house (ie Jer getting ready for work) and rushes through as many of his list as he can so that he can use Netflix during my shower.  Who knew a 4 year old could accomplish so much in about 1 1/2 hours?

Evelyn loves mom.  She just does.  While Sam watches Netflix, I cuddle Evelyn and get her breakfast.  She loves to have me read to her and actually demands that I read to her if someone is over visiting... YOU WILL PAY ATTENTION MOM!  She calls Pips "My Pips" and mostly plays with her as long as she doesn't get jealous.  She's started asking me where my baby is and patting my belly.

I was nervous about this baby.  We did so many things to even get pregnant, then I was really sick with pneumonia for the first trimester that it was really easy to ignore the pregnancy.  I almost didn't want to believe that there was a baby on the way.  But now I do.  And I'm excited.

To my babies, I love you all.

It only takes a moment

I got my 2 year old Evelyn a bowl of cereal and milk this morning and went off to get dressed and brush my teeth.  I was only gone for about 5 mins and come out of the bathroom to find a happy girl sitting in the middle of my bed and eating her cereal and spilling milk all over.  She thought she'd follow me I guess?

Windy weather with friends

The Cat in the Hat

Ada got to go to this play at the Scera Theater with her school. She talked about it so much that Sam wanted to go too.  So we took the family. I loved watching the kids giggle at the jokes and Ada loved meeting the characters afterwards. Sam was terrified to meet them in real life she Evelyn could have cared less but did like the play nonetheless.

Sister cuddle

Sisters

I'm so glad they each have a sister.  They love each other and take care of each other so well.
