Yes, my boys are almost 6 months old and I'm just now finally finishing up their nursery. Oh well ... they haven't complained :) My friend, Katherine, came over today and painted their names above their cribs. I love it and feel like it has definitely pulled the room together!! Ok, I had to stay up and see the ice skating, but now I'm off to bed ... I'm beat.

It's freaky to me how much Luke looks like Graham did as a baby. Even people who don't know us well will look at Luke and comment on how much he looks like Graham. Kevin and I think that when they all even out as teenagers or so that Graham and Luke will look like the twins instead :)

Mixed Emotions

So, this is going to be a different blog for me. Usually I have a cutesy pic of one or more of my kiddos and talk about what we're up to. The main reason this blog is different is because we've been up to absolutely NOTHING!!! Now, I don't want this blog to be a pity party or just me complaining because I truly am grateful for God's many blessings and have had more joy in the past 6 months than I've had in a long time. With that said, the past couple of days have consisted of cleaning up vomit (Graham's bed, my bed, my carpet, the babies' rug) and poop (my bed, my carpet) ... I think I've done 5 loads of laundry and washed my hands like a surgeon scrubbing in to surgery about 25 times. And my only contact with the outside world this week was my 2 hr. bible study on Wed. I have never been so over winter in my whole life!!! On the other hand, I have 3 healthy precious boys with whom I am completely enamored and can't get enough of. I have a loving husband who comes home every day after work to help get 3 boys fed, bathed, and put to bed and throws in some playtime, too. My heart melts when I hear Graham talking to the twins and saying, "It's ok, brother" when they cry and seeing the two of them starting to interact with each other is priceless. I'm at a stage in my life right now where all I feel like I do is serve, serve, serve and am constantly needed by someone, but sooner than I'd like to imagine my boys aren't going to need me so much and sadly probably won't want me all the time either. Life is so interesting. Thankfully the joys truly do outweigh the sorrows :)

p.s. Carter cut his first tooth yesterday ... see, i had to throw in something practical in this blog!!

5 Months Old

My sweet little buddies are 5 months old already ... why do babies grow SO fast?!?! Carter is starting to catch up to Luke ... last week at their check-up Carter weighed 13 lbs. 4 oz and Luke was 14 lbs. 1 oz. We're in full swing of solids ... they've tried sweet potatoes, butternut squash, and peas. Luke is definitely a better eater than Carter. I'm still having to feed them separately and cannot seem to keep their hands out of their mouths during meals. They really are at such a sweet age right now, and we are enjoying them tremendously!!

Kevin had to go out of town for the week, so I called in some recruits. We had a BLAST with Bet Bet and Snacks here ... thanks again for everything!!!
