Children are an heritage of the Lord: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. Psalm 127:3

Took the kids to Memorial Park today in Upland for the first time. Just me and them. Babies tried to eat lots of wood chips. Noah was digging watching rollerbladers at the skate park. Noah didn't want to go down any slides there by himself because they were really steep! Love this park because it is so shaded, with trees right inside the playground part, not just on the sides of it. Will definetly be utiliizing this park again during the summer. We saw a little boy today who was almost three years old and he couldn't speak any words. Just a bunch of jibberish. He was very friendly and outgoing, so I don't think he could be autistic, and he didn't seem to be retarded or anything like that either. He just talked like a baby of maybe 12-18 months. It was sad, and I don't think his parent's thought their was anything wierd about it. His dad just said that he was big for his age and was almost three, and that's why he talked like that. I felt bad for him, and a little funny when he kept coming up to me and having a full on conversation with me in jibberish. Anyhow, the babies both took a 2 hour morning nap, but then Micah completely rejected the afternoon nap, even though he had been up for 4 hours, and Levi fell asleep a the last minute, after an hour of being in there awake. So, Micah went to bed at 6:45, and Levi went down at 8:05, since he didn't wake up from the nap till 5:30. It is definately a sign that the morning nap is on it's way out, even though it will be a long road till it's gone all the way. Noah was done with it by 14 months, but he was very hard to keep awake for a few months trying to get him to push the one nap later into the afternoon. We will see how it all pans out! I am always a little sad to see the morning nap go, but then it is also freeing to only have one nap a day...which we better enjoy for at lwast a little bit before a million naps a day starts back over with the new little one. It's quite OK though, I love me my babies! :)
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!
