Park and moms
We went to beryl park today and my mom met us there. I used the sling to carry Levi in and he adored it! He loved being tucked in close to me, and I love it too! I wish I would have had it when they were first born...sadness! We got In-N-Out and ate it is the car at the park. The babies ate the grilled cheese, and they loved it! Also, besides just going in the swings, the babies are now able to crawl around a bit on the other park equipment and they really seem to enjoy it! They just crawl right up the stairs, and slide down the slides with a little help, and love every minute! Oh, how I love being a stay-at-home mom, and being there to enjoy all those simple pleasures and firsts! It truly is the most rewarding job in the world. I am so thankful to Nick for provding for us so I can stay home with my babies. They are my world! Anyway, we went to my mom's after the park, and naps were a disaster! Micah and Levi just cried and cried, finally fell asleep and then only slept for 20 minutes. They know when they are not at home, and it did not go well at all! They actually took a 3rd nap later at home, which thye don't do anymore usually, but they were so tired! They are only taking 2 naps now...one around 9am, and the other around 1 or 2 pm. Noah also still naps from 1:30-2pm until about 4 or 4:30. Days that he does nap he usually goes to bed at 8:30, and days when he doesn't nap he usually goes down at about 7pm. It is nice to have the kids all nap at the same time in the afternoon, so I usually get at least an hour to rest...at least that's the theory! :)
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!
