Costco and Park
Took all the kids to Costco today...heard the usual, "You've got your hands full", with the looks of pity! haha I have pity on people who don't get to do what I do with the kids I have! :) Anyway, as soon as we got home from Costco, Nick pulled up and Noah really wanted to go to the park. It was only 3:30, so we just unloaded the car really quick and went to Red Hill park for about an hour. It was fun! The babies just climb right up the stairs and go down the slides all by themselves! It is so cute! Noah is getting better and better and climbing and jumping and all that stuff. They are all growing so fast. I remind myself that I am going to miss their ages all the time, so that I don't take it for granted or let myself get too frustrated. I don't want to look back on these fleeting years with any regrets of not appreciating them while they are still here, while they are still my little boys. I have three little boys, and I love it so much! :) Anyway, we had ravioli for dinner, and Nick and I watched Mr. Mom after we got the kids in bed...all of them were sleeping by 7pm. It was cheesy but funny. It's as close as I will probably ever get to having Nick see what it would really be like if he stayed at home with the kids full time! Haha He will never really know...but I wish he could see that's it's a lot harder then he thinks...even though it is absolutely the best job in the entire world! Love being a stay at home mommy!
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!
