It is only 9:30pm and I’m exhausted

I’m going to just explain pictures and not chat a lot because I worry I’ll talk on and on about nothing interesting. haha

I sensored these breastfeeding pictures. I figure you guys don’t want to see any more of my boobs! haha.But LOVE these pictures so I wanted to share 🙂
She often has her hand down the top of my shirt. She rubs the top of my chest while she drinks.

Speaking of breastfeeding, I’m nursing Ember right now.

After nursing she is pretty happy!

Sierra wore her costume for most of this week.

We played a lot of games with the kids’ candy. We sorted them, graphed them, compared different kinds, made pictures with them… just so much fun with it all. Oh and of course we ate a TON. Seriously we’re all almost barfing from gorging ourselves on candy!

The weather finally, finally cooled down just TODAY. It’s been in the 100s and 90s this entire month and today the high was in the 70s! BLISSSSSSS.

Thank you for this hat, Jordan. I think Ember likes it just as much as Sierra did when she wore it 🙂

The kids played and made messes. Like they do all day every day.

I loved on my baby girl.
Photobucket

I canNOT get enough of this Ember baby. She is the cutest thing on earth and I love every second of being her mom. Even at 2, 3, 4am when she’s kicking me in the face or pinching my breast between her razor sharp little fingernails… love her!
Photobucket

I had my camera and snapped a picture during this random moment the other night and love it so so much. It was all unposed and is so us.
Photobucket

Because Ember falls asleep easily in her swing at night (I know, swing at 13 months?!) and only wakes up when Allan and I come to bed and turn down her white noise CD, we decided to move her into Sierra’s room so that we could leave that CD on full blast if we wanted to.

Sierra is currently sleeping in Payson’s room while we get Ember used to her room. Ember isn’t sleeping much better in Sierra’s room. She’s ended up in my bed every single night. haha
Photobucket

The kids ask me to paint their faces every day since I bought a bunch of face painting kits when they went on sale after Halloween. They’ve had butterflies, fairies, bees and other things on their faces every single day of this week. haha

I also bought a ton of glow sticks on sale.

With the weather finally nice and cool we’ve been outside a lot.

I bought a new sippy cup for Ember. One of a bazillion I’ve bought in hopes of getting her to drink just a bit out of something other than my breasts. lol. I would like to be able to go shopping alone just once in a while and I can’t very well do that if she won’t eat and won’t drink unless I’m there.
Photobucket

The sippy cup leaks like crazy but she did drink two ounces from it. Over the course of an hour :/

We moved a few random shelves out of Sierra’s room since we reorganized it and made it all baby safe. Those shelves are now in the garage but for the few hours they were in the living room I used them as a barricade for the middle two kids. They were playing with blocks and Ember kept destroying their buildings.
Photobucket

The giant mess in these pictures is from a bunch of file folder games I made for the middle kids. That’s all cleaned up now. haha
Photobucket

Sierra was making sentences out of sight word magnets she got from a new school supply store that opened up 20 minutes from our house.

I have a million more pictures (haven’t stopped overshooting!) but am just going to stop now. haha!

One thought on “It is only 9:30pm and I’m exhausted

  • Oh my gosh…Ember in that gray dress and leggings? I must have her. 😛 You did an awesome job with the face painting. I'm impressed! And I had totally forgotten about that hat. It looks adorable on E!
