Wait a second...you're kidding me, right? What happened to the baby lump that didn't move?? She is now STANDING!!


Getting into Mommy's craft supplies


I'm not sure this is the kind of organizing I had in mind! :)



Our baby is such a blessing to us. We are so thankful for her, and have tried to enjoy every bit of 'baby-ness' this time. It's such a fast season, and with Abby, we had rules and things had to be done just so. The poor firstborn. The practice child. I was one, so hey, it obviously doesn't kill you; and so far, Abby seems to be doing just fine. With Beks, we have tried to relax a little. Well, everyone except Abby. She has now had her world rocked. The baby just laid there before...maybe she could do a couple of log rolls, but this? THIS is stressful. This baby sister is not cute. Not fun. Not her friend. Wow. I hope this part gets better. Sometimes, she's absolutely helpful with Beks and adorable, but the other times, whew. She LOVES everyone elses little sisters and brothers, but her's is not the same. Abby informed me a few days ago that she does not like to share me when Grandma Lene is not here. Hmmmm...Grandma Lene isn't here very often, so you can imagine the trauma she is experiencing.

We are having lots of fun though. Watching the girls grow and seeing their personalities emerge. We're in for it...

Bloggy love,

I cannot believe how that girl is getting around! Look out-everyone's stuff is in danger now. Poor Indy is thinking oh, no not again!! Grandma Lene thinks she is super cute, too. First born Abby will adjust and most first borns do turn out okay. :)

If abby wants to be consoled tell her to call hannah~13 who is still disgusted we allowed the creature feature known as ben into her perfect only child world! SIGH. There are wonderful moments of "better" when they are playing nicely and having fun but then they pass away and they will be disgusted with each other again! Siblings! It's a love hate relationship!

It DOES get better! William now refers to Daniel as "my best friend Daniel". On the flip side, when little bro does something he doesn't like, his new insult is "Daniel! You're NOT my best friend ANYmore." Daniel, who doesn't know exactly what that means, does know he doesn't like it, so he proceeds to yell back, "YES I AM, William!!" Fun times.
