My 4 Kids

This picture might be my favorite ever to make the blog. I cried actual tears when I saw this. Easton loves school and is a great student, but his writing and drawing skills have always been pretty terrible (notice Santa's awesome hat and beard?). Steve and I aren't exactly artists, so I'm sure he gets it from us. His writing has improved a TON since he started kindergarten and it makes me so happy! I don't know if you can see what it says or not if you click on the picture, but it says, " Der Santa, I wud lik a pawrrangr thak yoo. " You better believe I sent a text message to Santa and he went right out and got him a red power ranger.

We had our first parent teacher conference and it went so well and was super fun. There's something great about listening to your kids' teacher say awesome things about your kids. She said he's responsible, helpful, smart and fun. I'm so happy he's good at school...sometimes home is a different story.
No our baby isn't all of a sudden 9 months old. This is Anniston, a girl from our neighborhood that we have been babysitting for a couple of months. She is the cutest and my kids love her! I think it will be good practice for them for when their baby sister comes. Every day they ask if Anniston is coming and Carly loves to snuggle (smother) her. She's a sweetheart and we're enjoying our time with her.

Carly is WAY too big. It seems like the more kids you have the faster they grow up. She is doing and saying things way sooner than Easton ever did and I think it's because she has an older sibling. I want her to stay my baby forever but sometimes she just sounds and acts so grown up. We have conversations about everything and her voice is my favorite thing in the world. She could be potty trained but her mom is too lazy. Maybe after Christmas we will tackle that.

This is what baby # 3 looks like. We just recently had another ultrasound and she looks great! I'm 27 weeks and she is a feisty little thing. She was doing somersaults and flipping around while we were watching her. It was pretty fun. We haven't really talked names yet, but we sure are excited to meet her!
I absolutely can't wait to snuggle her.

Oh that last pic is so SWEET. Doesn't it just look like she's snuggling you? Wow. So great. The 3D shots always freak Greg out but I LOVE them.

OH MY GOSH!! your ultra sound pictures are AMAZING!! I want another one! That profile picture is perfect! She is already so beautiful and precious!! I can't wait to meet her. I love your kids. And Carly's voice is irresistable. She could say or ask for anything and I'd give it to her because that voice just melts me.

I'm so happy that Easton is a good student :) And I'm not surprised! I can't wait for him to get his power ranger. I hope that Christmas list is up on the fridge! You are SUCH a great mom. And Steve is SUCH a great dad! That is the only explanation for your amazing kids.

Love you! Help me when I become a mom!

I LOVE this post! I love Easton's letter to Santa- it's awesome! Carly is growing up way too fast and I can't believe in a few more months you're going to have three and driving a mini van!!

Graham said...

First of all Easton's handwriting did get him the Fine Writer of the classroom!!!! I love the letter! I love the 3D pictures. I can't wait to meet her.

Christi said...

Graham was me :) Even though I am sure Nick is just as excited to meet the new addition :P

Wow! I am behind the times. I love your thanksgiving post and all the photos, that was so much fun and we loved being there. That picture of Carly and Jenni just melts my heart AND the one with the power ranger, well all of them.

Oh, Oh, Oh, is all I kept saying about this post. Of course Easton is a perfect student, I never doubted him for a minute. Kids, especially boys, love to fake their mom out like that. That note is just so precious, it reminded me of when Jenni wrote: der ces ples cum tomi prte atnit on our first computer. Translation; Dear kids, please come to my party at night. It was New Years Eve.

I feel like I can reach out and grab your new baby and snuggle her from that photo, I love it! She is adorable already. You better be thinking names, it's not that far away, but it was fun to be surprised with Easton and Carly's names so that is okay if you don't tell.

I really love watching my kids be parents, it's the best!
