kids being kids

It cracks me up when kids contort their bodies and yet make it look comfortable!
Wouldn't it be great to be a kid again?


It seems like Alice doubled in size over night!
Not my baby anymore!

Alice has adjusted well to being a big sister.  She loves Audrey and is so gentle and kind to her.  I love that she was trying to share her toys with Audrey for this photo shoot!  It just takes so long to grow them into playmates!!!


Time for a photo shoot.

Love this Maya girl!  
She's such a great big sister to Audrey.
She came with me to register for Kindergarten next year and is cautiously excited...crazy!


Hayely: one week before she turned 8
(and right before she begged me to cut off her long hair!)

1st Bath

At 12 days old, Audrey finally lost her umbilical cord and got to dive into her first real bath...
with a lot of help, of course!

Cute Face

10 days old

There's just something so kissable about this little face!

A day off

As much as I love being mom to 4 darling girls...this week caught up with me.  [read: I'm tired, overwhelmed and a nut-case!]

My mom showed up on my doorstep yesterday to rescue me....then 6 hours later drove away with 2 of my kids for a couple days. more kid off to school this morning and I am left with a day off!  Audrey keeps me company occasionally but in between I'm soaking up the silence and wondering how my house is so clean without even trying!  Bliss!

After painting my nails, I decided to treat myself to a binge-blogging's nice to be reminded of how wonderful my life is in pictures especially when it has felt so hard recently.

If you put on your rosy glasses (or have a grandma to save the day) is all good!
