She's Smiling!

But it's very hard to catch on camera....
(and check out those cheeks!)

This is Papa's "tractor". Brennan has been obsessed with this thing since birth. More than once we've found him out in the garage at Papa's house just sitting on the tractor quietly. When we stay at their house there's at least 1 tractor ride an hour requested. Papa is wonderful to oblige and he's taken the boys on countless tractor rides. And Brennan has been content with that.

But I think that's going to change now.....

He's actually a really good driver!

Still Alive

Yes, I'm still alive. It's been one month since my last post! Wow. Life is FULL. Full of children and housekeeping, school, preschool, VBS planning, wonderful friends, work, potty training, laundry, playing, changing diapers, discipline, cooking, and nursing, nursing and more nursing. It's been hard to squeeze blogging in there. But I'm going to try and do better as I really want a record of these days. At the end of the day I'm amazed at the number of things I've gotten done, yet at the same time, the number of things left undone. Whew, more on that later.
Here's a picture recap of the last few weeks. I'll do more of these this week.

In the couple weeks before Margo was born, getting Charlotte into bed used to take either A. a temper tantrum or B. lots of coaxing. Now it's quite easy. We just put Margo in her bed and she climbs in gladly!

A shout out to my good friend Katie (Happy Birthday TODAY!!). She drove all the way from South Dakota on the day Margo was born. She helped with our kids, cooked and was a peaceful presence. And she may or may not have seen me completely naked in the tub while in labor :).

Margo gets an audience for just about everything she does. This was one of her first sink baths.

Here is Margo cashed out. I had just changed her diaper and she went right back to sleep. She's a pretty relaxed baby!
Easter Sunday. After spending the morning worshiping at our own church, we drove out to Grandma and Papa's house. I made the boys keep their church clothes on until we got out there (oh the horror!). Two seconds after this picture was taken they had changed into shorts and t-shirts.

More to come.....
