My Silly Little Boy

Yesterday was one of those know where you don't really feel like doing anything except for going back to bed and sleeping all day.  Three of the kids were up in the middle of the night several times so my night wasn't very restful.  Anyway, I was just kinda having a down day.  But my ornery little two-year-old made me laugh anyway.  (Try not to get a mental picture to go along with this story.:)  So I was just getting ready to get in the shower, and Gage comes running in the bathroom.  He stops when he sees me, starts giggling and says, "Mommy, your tummy looks like an elephant!"  To which I said, "What!?!?"  He said, "It looks like it goes...." and he proceeds to make the elephant sound!  Apparently my stomach and my belly button add up to looking like a saggy baggy elephant!!  Thank-you Hadyn and Everett!!  Anyway, despite receiving such a wonderful complement, I had to chuckle! 

Last week Tim and I came home from Missouri and the boys were all in bed.  When Gage got up the next morning, I gave him a big hug and told him I missed him and he said, "yeah you did."  :) 

My kids bring joy and humor to my days (most of the time)!

How can you resist such a smile!

Eight months old!!

Today the twins are 8 months old!! I can hardly believe that only 8 months ago they were so tiny!  On the other hand I can hardly believe that it has already been 8 months!  Sadly I do not have enough time or energy to post any pictures tonight (I will soon), but I just thought you should all know we are alive and well.  I took the twins to the doctor today for a well baby check and they are growing perfectly.  Everett weighs 18 1/2 lbs. and is 29in. long and Hadyn weighs 18lbs. and is 28in. long.  Everett is starting to level off with his weight mostly because the little boy CANNOT SIT STILL!!  He crawls under and over everything and is starting to pull himself up to stuff and then proceeds to fall and cry!:)  So as you can tell instead of blogging I have been saving him from falling, kissing his bonks on the head, rescuing dead ladybugs from his mouth, rescuing tiny toys his brothers leave lying around from his mouth as well as Hadyn's mouth, and making sure they are not eating dirt or chewing on shoes, and feeding them lots of new foods, and taking adorable pictures of them, and doing all of their laundry, and many many many other things that my brain is too tired to think of right now.  
I have so many pictures and stories to post and hopefully soon I will have more time to post them. Until then, I hope you all are doing well and having a wonderful November.  Oh and Congratulations to my cousin, Liz who just had a beautiful baby boy!!  I love his name, which I won't even type right now because I have no idea how to spell it, but it is adorable!  I will get back to you on that!  Aren't I annoying!?  :)  I need sleep, must go!!
