It has been over two months since I posted. I am going to be so sad about this one day when I want to look back and remember... here's to trying to be better about posting some of the little things that make these days both entertaining and refining.
There are some days that things are so crazy that I don't feel like I could make it up if I tried... crazy in a good way like... I somehow think it's a good idea to take all three boys to Academy for new shoes during nap time... and both boys start screaming at the top of their lungs "I have to poop!" for everyone else to hear. (I told them they were not allowed to poop.) And then they trip on the cart and melt down in the store. And when they're not melting down they're running through the shoe isle. And Jack is hungry. And just when I think we are home free, seconds after paying, Henry drops the drink he is holding all over the floor and we have to wait for a really slow employee to come help us get cleaned up. While the line piled up behind me. And the employee took too long, so I left without cleaning up the mess anyway.
It's also filled with really sweet things like the boys asking deep questions, loving each other, and loving me and Matt. Henry has told us with tears in his eyes that he will never, ever, ever move away. He's here to stay - forever. (This was in response to Matt telling him that one day he will grow up and move away.) Poor little man cannot imagine life without us. I will remind him of this when he is 18. Anyway, here are some pictures of our last two months...
|I took this on one of the "refining" days. I call Sam my "ER trip waiting to happen." We have been twice in two months. This may have also been the day Henry slipped in Sam's pee on the kitchen floor. Reasons why I am not ready for that sweet baby in the bottom left to grow up.|
|We went to the beach. Isn't this beach baby A-dorable!|
|Laura had fun hanging with Jack and talking to him.|
|Digging in the sand at the beach...|
|I think we now have a total of TWO family pictures since Jack was born... I am so bad about it!|
|Jack all covered up...|
|I took Jack to meet my beautiful Nana in Alabama before we went to the beach. She has been less mobile in recent years so it's been a really long time since I had seen her.|
|Cousins on the ipad!|
|Jack's 4 month picture. Who needs a sign when your child will hold up 4 fingers??|
|Jack w/ his buddy Myles.|
|Mom failed with decent back to school pictures.|
|Don't you just want to squeeze him?|
|This is what our car looks like... this was on the way home from the beach. Don't tell - I secretly want a minivan.|
|Jack is surrounded by action... and loving brothers. (Who only occasionally try to make him cry on purpose.)|
|He is SUCH a laid back, content baby.|
|Another one with Nana.|
|Sam getting his head stapled.|
|Love this happy kid.|
|Babies are the sweetest.|
