In the pictures of Sierra and Payson closing their eyes with their arms folded, they were praying. Praying that they could throw their toys the furthest and win their made up game. haha
Payson and Everett both like to be in my belly pictures with me. I’m starting to feel huge!
And almost collapse into a gooey pile of love at the cuteness. But you keep your wits enough to grab the camera and capture the moment 🙂
Allan moved back in on the 16th. He was really excited to be around to pick out stuff for Lyla and help put it together. I could tell he was antsy to be a part of the pregnancy in any way he could after not having been a part of the other 8 months. He put her changing table together. With “help” from the kids.
Allan took the first picture and I took the other two. I love cosleeping. Allan doesn’t sleep in my room with me yet, he still sleeps upstairs in his own room. It’s me and Ember and Everett in the master bedroom.
My feelings for Costco are a mix of love and joy and hatred and stress. I love what I can get at Costco. I like that everything is our family’s size. I love that there are so many organic options, especially because I live in a city with few organic options.
I can’t stand the crowds.
But the items available outweigh the torture of taking 6 children into crowds and so we go. And we get food. And mealtimes are happy.
I pulled out all of Ember and Everett’s baby clothes and cloth diapers and blankets and bibs to pick out what was usable for Lyla. I also ordered her some stuff that we didn’t have and it all started arriving this week! Things are getting real! We’re going to have another baby!
I love when Ember and Everett play together.
We made at least a dozen batches of homemade playdough this year. We mostly used an edible recipe since Everett liked to eat it each time.
The particular homeschool journals the kids are homeschooling with in this next picture are from Fun Schooling Books. I bought all mine on Amazon. Here’s the link: Homeschool Journals on Amazon (nothing on my blog is affiliated, obviously. Just things I actually find, buy, and use)
