2 months old

So we've been home for 2 months now and I'm just now updating the blog.  That's because our lives are CRAZY!  There is hardly time to do anything besides feed babies and change diapers.  These babies are a LOT of work!  When I take one of them out, it seems like a piece of cake now. :-)  We love our children, but we are VERY tired!  The other day Ben said, "Daddy and I are going to play Wii.  We are getting out of babyland and going up to legoland!"  They needed a break.  Ben is actually a very big help and he loves cuddling his siblings.  It's hard to get anywhere but we have managed to make some outings. It's a big process to get them all ready and out the door. Our first big outing was to one of Ben's baseball games.  We are thankful for the warm weather so we can get them out for walks.  We also went to a wedding where Ben was the ring bearer and we were actually on time!  We have them on a pretty good schedule during the day, but we're still working on getting them to sleep through the night.  We're down to one feeding in the middle of the night which makes a big difference.  It's just hard because it seems like there is always at least one that needs attention.  We often have to reheat our lunch 3 or 4 times because as soon as we sit down to eat, something happens and someone needs to be taken care of.   They all had a cold for a week or two but everyone is doing well now.  One health concern is that Seth has a belly button hernia, but the doctor said it isvery common and it should go away on its own.  There is so much more to say, but it's time to feed the babies again!  Hopefully it won't be 2 months before I touch this again. :-)


  1. They are getting so big!!!! I would love to come help you one day when we are up there!!!! I will message you later about that!!! Hang in there! Jan Sy

  2. Praying for you guys! I remember you (Kristen) telling us during our SG mtg that you thought you could do more now that Ben was getting so big, and thinking about going back to work full time. Well God definitely had something BIG for you to do, and with overtime hours! We'll be praying that they all start sleeping through the night, as I'm sure that will make a huge difference in how you feel!
