Today felt lighter.
I woke up and everything was ok.
Life is funny with its ups and downs.
Guess who is TWO MONTHS OLD!
The three older kids have spent hours and hours and hours playing outside the last couple weeks.
Ember talks to her toys a lot lately.
Which I find overwhelmingly cute! I love when babies coo at inanimate objects!
Payson loves attention from mommy.
The girls got new earrings since Brooklyn broke one of hers and Sierra lost two of hers. These kids go through a pair of earrings every other month!
Brooklyn begged me to take a picture of her new ones.
They have matching earrings now.
I have a picture of the three older kids laying on the floor together from when Payson was a baby. I decided to try for one like that of all four kids.
Ember wasn’t happy with that idea! The older kids scare her when they make loud noises and she’s not in my arms.
But she calmed down when she heard my voice. It was cute how Payson reacted to her whimper… he came over all gentle and was saying, “Oh, Embow, it’s ok.”
Brooklyn wanted to hold Ember so I said, “Sure and we’ll get a picture of the four of you together!”
Payson was making Ember wave.
Which I don’t let him do because he did that once before and then stood up to run off while still holding her hand!
So I got up and told him to sit on Brooklyn instead and be the big baby.
Which he LOVED. I have twenty pictures of them together laughing and stuff that are so cute.
Payson is surprisingly very gentle when it’s his turn to hold her. He holds totally still and just looks at her face and tummy and hands and looks so proud and happy.
Later Payson colored while the older girls went outside to play again.
But they came back inside when I turned on the BYU football game.
Brooklyn took my camera and started snapping.
Allan was sadly at work so I texted him about the game the whole time.
Ember was wearing Payson’s BYU shirt since he was taking a nap.
I tried out the bumbo but she’s still too little.
I’m going to make the switch to all cloth soon. I decided to try out the size medium diapers I already have from Sierra and Payson to see if I could skip buying more.
Um, nope, way too big even on my getting pudgy little girl.
She was perfectly happy with her too big diaper, though.
I changed her during halftime. Then she fell asleep while nursing.
So I set her on the couch next to me and she woke up immediately.
Payson woke up from his nap during the 4th quarter.
So he and I watched the end together.
I love this kid.
He took this one:
While Payson and I finished watching the game, Ember was over in her bouncy chair talking to her toys.
The girls were still playing outside while I made dinner.
And that’s all!!
