Diapers and Beans...but not together!
Ordered our first cloth diapers today! Just two for now so I can see if I like them or not! I got Kissaluvs fitted diapers, with a Thirsties diaper cover. I also ordered some Babylegs, which I heard are great for little crawlers who are not wearing pants! I took the kiddos to the park today, and my mom met us there. They all had fun. The babies love swinging on the swings, and Noah just about likes everything about the park. We went into the Lions Center so Noah could use the bathroom, and they had some toys inside that they got to play with for a little bit...until we couldn't keep the babies from crawling in all directions any longer! Then Noah collected some pinecones on our walk back to the car. I would love to walk to the park, but our hill just kills me with the triple stroller! Anyway, I also made ham and bean soup today in the crockpot...it's actually still cooking! I even made the beans and everything from dried! That was a first for me. I added carrots, garlic and onions too it also. I got some of it out early for the babies to eat, and they loved the beans! Micah and Levi will eat absolutely anything...I really hope it stays that way! I have my fingers crossed! On a totally different subject...I also have my fingers crossed that all my boys will all always be close to each other. Micah and Levi are almost always exploring side by side, and Noah is usually not far away either...except when he gets tired of the babies grabbing at his toys...then he goes into his room and shuts them out!
The best husband and father a girl could ask for...He loves God, me, and our boys with all his heart.
Noah is our little blonde hair, blue-eyed wonder! He is a curious, talkative, and sensitive little boy. He loves ambulances and firetrucks, doing crafts, and he calls Minnie Mouse his wife. He loves helping me do things, like making cookies and scrubbing dishes. Noah is an awesome big brother, and brings me joy everyday as I watch him interact with his three little brothers.
Our firstborn twin, Micah can often be found with his thumb in his mouth, dragging around his blue silky blanket. He squints his eyes when I ask him to smile, and poses for the camera. He loves avocado, and he calls his baby brother "beebee". He melts my heart when he calls me "mummy"!
Levi was a feisty baby, and he is an even more feisty toddler! He loves to snatch toys from his brothers and run, just to hear them squeal! He learned how to climb out of his crib at 20 months. He brings shovels full of dirt into the house. He may make big messes, but the world stops when he tells me "hold you".
Our fourth son is such a blessing to us! He is a very smiley boy, who is getting more vocal with his cooing by the day! He has one dimple, and blue eyes just like his big brother Noah. We think they are clones! ;) We are so in love with our newest addition, and are enjoying every minute of watching him grow already!
