Bath Time

Bath time

This guy is a pro at getting messy. I think it’s because he LOVES to get all nice and clean with a warm sudsy bath. Is “sudsy” a word?

I love…

I love your cheeks. They are the sweetest kissable baby cheeks ever.

I love how you smell. There was a television show that used to be on called, “Gilmore Girls” and I remember in one of the episodes the main character described babys’ smell as “pink.” I haven’t been able to get that out of my head, because it is so true! You have that wonderful pink smell.

I love how you fit in my arms. I know this won’t last for much longer because you are growing so fast. But for now, you fit just so; I can carry you easily in one arm.

I love your eyes.

I love your cute ears. Your sisters love your cute ears too.

I love your cute little but long toes. You must have your daddy’s toes.

I love our cuddles. I hope I can somehow remember those always.

Would you believe me if I told you that I completely forgot that I took these pictures? That’s how tired I am…

Our girls were not able to come and visit Mr. N. in the hospital due to the terrible flu that is going around, so I was really excited for them to meet when we got home. E asked, “Can we keep it?” while L stated, “He’s so handsome!” over and over again.

I’d love to write more, but my kids are all sleeping and that means I should be too!

My little guy

Mr. Nolan

I finally took pictures…and even got them on the computer. Now if I could only get my house somewhat clean.

He Finally Came!

He Finally Came!

My little mister finally arrived. He was quite large and my girls keep telling people how very pink he is. We’re so happy to welcome him into our family!

After a lazy morning, a really lazy morning for me, we decided it was time to take the girls out in the snow to go sledding. They had been begging to go for the last couple of weeks, but with the baby almost due we had to wait for a time when Daddy could come. I actually wasn’t even going to go because I’ve been so sick, but I really wanted to get a few pictures of their first time sledding.

I bundled the girls up as best as I could so they could stay warm. They wore pajamas, socks, mittens, jackets, snow pants, fluffy large coats, and hats. The most important article of clothing I put on was my new belly band. Thanks mom! I don’t think I could survive without that thing. Daddy wore his snow gear from high school and his brand new snow boots that I ordered for him. He looked so cute. Goodness, I sure love that man.

Since we are very new to the area, daddy had to look online for a good sledding spot, and boy did he find a good one! The hill was perfect even though there wasn’t very much snow. They each took turns going on the sled, flying down the hill, with Daddy holding onto them tightly. They were all giggles and smiles and sometimes couldn’t stop bouncing up and down while waiting for their turn. L also kept trying to eat the filthy snow while she waited. Yuck.

Towards the end of our adventure, E insisted on going down the hill herself which nearly gave me a heart attack, but she LOVED it!

I stood and watched my little family play in the snow, snapping a couple of pictures here and there. I’m so grateful for all of the love I am surrounded by and can’t believe I get another little babe to take care of and love. I’m so excited to meet him. He should be here any day which is good because my body is done. I’m feeling more useless than I ever have in my entire life. I am constantly sick, dizzy, achy, tired, and the worst part is the weight and stretching going on in my tummy area. Pinch skin under you upper arm and then pull down…that’s about how I feel all around my stomach almost all of the time. The ligaments in my stomach often prevent me from even being able to stand up straight. I know this is all worth it and I will happily do it again…I’m just ready to meet my little guy.

Hope you are enjoying the icy cold weather. We’ve actually been pretty lucky and haven’t had to endure super freezing temperatures for more than a couple of days. Today, we’re in the 30′s. :)

Happy Winter.

I’m actually pretty surprised that I mustered up the energy to take pictures and video (coming soon…maybe) on Christmas morning after getting 2 hours of sleep and being massively pregnant. I obviously didn’t shoot much, but I’m so glad that I at least took a few pictures. We had a wonderful Christmas with our little family. L was very excited about the candy, and if you are confused about what E is holding in the picture above, you should know that it is a measuring tape…and yes, she did ask Santa to bring one to her.

Our Christmas tree is still up, I’m too tired to even think about taking it down, and frankly, it makes me happy. We still light it up some nights and it helps make the room feel nice and cozy.

I hope everyone had a nice Christmas and New Years. More to come… depending on when this baby boy decides to come.

These pictures are dark…sorry. I shot in AV mode which I rarely do, and they came out super underexposed. Oy. Manual is always better, but I’m a lazy super pregnant mommy. In fact, I haven’t taken any pictures since this day, which was over a month ago. Time to bust out the camera, so we know that we actually celebrated Christmas this year.

I’d update more, but my little L is demanding attention, so we’re going to go snuggle on the couch and watch a movie.
