Since We've Been Gone....

I have been a bad blogger lately. Jack is getting older and sleeping much less during the day, we have been doing some home renovations that have taken up most of our free time and I am exhausted. But here are some pictures of what we've been up to this month.

Steven and Gabby napped together

Daddy read everyone a book

a little fairy-princess played with her toys

the weather finally permitted this

and this

someone refused to get out of the swing

Steven got signed up for soccer and started practicing

warm weather brought lots of smiles to this face

the babies played in the grass

Jack had a sink-bath or two

the 3rd baby to wear this pair of PJs finally wore them out

I skipped a few days of laundry....and regretted it

this boy ate all of these things, along with his baby food

Gabby worked an hairdo

Jack snuggled with Daddy

Cookie Monster was impersonated

So, that's what our January looked like. Plus, we pulled all the carpet and tile up from the kitchen/living/dining rooms and the halls from our house and put down laminate wood floors. Scraping thin-set off the concrete under the tile was HORRIBLE. But it's done. All we have to finish is painting the baseboards.
I would like to say that I'll be better at blogging now, but.....I'll surprise myself if I get to this again any time soon. It is currently 12:28am. The kids and I are off to MOPS in the morning. So I'm off to catch a few hours of sweet, sweet sleep. But, now you're all caught up!

And LOVE all of Jack's little rolls on his legs and arms!! Soooo adorable!

What a creative way to catch people up, those pictures were great. I especially loved the one of Jack's toe peeking through the sock (great angle and everything!) and him grinning from eating all those goodies.

Your children are beautiful, Leah, what little treasures they all are. :)
