Letting it sink in...
Today has been a day of letting our baby news sink in. It still hasn't really. I am having a hard time thinking that my sweet babies are going to be big brothers. They will only be 19 months old. I know this is God's timing and I know I will love this baby with all my heart, I just need a little time to adjust to the idea! Noah's first reaction to me saying we were goging to have another baby was "But we already have enough babies!" Oh my! However, now he is saying he is excited! It is sooo cute and fun because he understands this time! I love that! The babies were both very fussy today. Micah is definately getting two teeth! They have almost broken through but not quite, so I think they are really bothering him! Poor baby didn't want me to put him down. Levi doesn't have any visible teeth trying to push their way out, but something is definetly up with him! We are trying to make such big decisions about where to live! We are really struggling with the idea of having such a small backyard for our many small children! Jeremiah and Nicole, and soon Chris and Itzel will all be living in Pinon Hills. You can get a bigger house and a few acres up there, but you have to live in the desert! There are so many pros and cons to weigh. Really though, it's just where God wants us. I just need to hear His voice on this. That is what I am praying for and listening for. I know He will answer! Filled out envelopes for the boys birthday invites today...I am mailing them tommorow!
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!
