Cinco de Mayo
Had a riveting discussion on facebook this morning likening the new illegal citizen law in Arizona to questioning could-be prostitutes. Awesome. So fitting for today!Made some yummy carne asada tonight! It was sooo good...next time I am gonna marinate it even longer, since I only did for an hour today. Anyway, my parents and Nat came over for dinner, and mom made her fabulous salsa and spanish rice. YUM! Amanda also stopped by for like 3 minutes to eat...whatever! ;) Earlier in the afternoon Mom came by and watched the boys while I went to the grocwey store. It is amazing how an hour of grocery shopping alone actually qualifies as a break! haha! She let the boys all play outside the whole time I was gone, and they loved it! It was warm enough that she puty a little water in the blow up pool, and they all wen to town! Micah wouldn't stop trying to drink it, of course! That kid always try to drink bath water, and other inappropriate water, even when he has a cup full sitting right by him! Silly! He hasn't quite figured out that he shouldn't breathe while his face is in it either, so he will start choking after he breathes water in! It scares me! Anyway, all three of those boys love being outside, and I love it too! I am just waiting for the babies to walk now though, so they will stop eating rocks and dirt as much when we are out there! :) They are both walking a little, Levi a little more so, and they are really making progress. It is so cute watching them learn, and even cuter that they are still so wobly! Love this time in their lives!
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!
