My computer is ALWAYS on the fritz so I finally was able to upload some photos and I also have a free moment in between getting Caden to school, the twins to preschool, or naps, and feeding and changing Brooke. Oh the life of a mother of four...FOUR I can't believe that is me! I still feel like a giddy 19-20 year old in college! I'm in Young Women's now and I don't feel like I'm that much older than the Laurels, but I"m 8-10 years older than them! I probably seem so old to them! Am I old??? I think not! I feel so blessed to have the family that I do. My kids bring me such joy and I need to learn to live in the moment with my kids and not keep waiting for the next phase because my life seems like utter chaos at times. I need to embrace my kids being kids and join in! We have so much influence on their little lives, and they are only with you for such a short time. Caden in the fall will be in the first grade and will be gone 7 hours a day, being influenced by teachers and students. I hope that I can instill in him a good sense of self and who he is so he can influence others, instead of the other way around.
Moving on, with the pictures, I was able to spoil myself a little and bought myself some Dansko's. Like my best friend says the ultimate mom shoe! But I just love them! They are so comfortable and work with everything! Now I just need a pair of brown ones!
Little Caden! He's such a sweetheart.He is loving his little sister. The other day I was changing her diaper and she was crying and he was so worried and was actually telling me to stop cause he was so worried. He loves going to wresting still, even though he is not that good at it...maybe it won't be his niche, but I think he's still too young to tell!
This is where Kylee is most of the time. Right next too Brooke. She's pretty good with her most of the time, but every now and then she forgets she's fragile. The other day Brooke was in the bouncer and I turn around to see her bouncing it and Brooke was catching air! Holly and I took the girls with us to the mall the other day to pamper Kylee a little. Out of all the kids Kylee has suffered the most from Brooke's arrival because the boys would play and she would hang out with me. She had my undivided attention. Now she has to share it with Brooke, and it's made her act out some. She loved the mall, she got ice cream and gum and we walked around the American girl doll store and of course she wanted it all for her birthday! What a girl!
These to little peas in a pod! They are either the best of friends or the worst of enemies! The hardest thing about having four is these two are into everything the minute I have to feed Brooke. It's like they have a radar knowing when I'm preoccupied! I can't stay mad too long just look at those faces!
Little Brooke! She has been such a joy and such a good baby. I can't complain too much. She goes 4 to 5 hour stretches at night and hardly EVER cries! I can't believe she's a month old already! Time sure does fly by!
