The First Few Weeks


This seems like a long time ago, but when you're exhausted ... all the days/months/hours run together.

Here is the ultimate baby lover - Cole. He is so good to the babies! Constantly holding and kissing them. I love this picture - Cole and Scarlett.

Celebrating Grandma Great's 88th Birthday. 


Two cuties ready for school photos.


Snap chat is the BEST with newborns. You should be grateful I didn't post the other 800 I had on my phone.


Most beautiful newborn award.


This girl! She's handled middle siblinghood like a champ.


As long as she's got a bowl of marshmallows, nothing can get her down.


Blowing bubbles.


Aunt Dot! It was so fun to have a quick visit from the Burnetts. 


This lemon swaddle is my favorite. Also, the baby laying on it is my favorite.


I miss all her hair!


Perfection.


Waiting patiently to be picked up by Grandma.


School field trip to the pumpkin patch (5 days after I had Scarlett). It was so fun to get outside the house and just hang with Ev. 


Buds.


Field trip!


3 year check for this big girl!


Nukie face.


Love that dainty little neck.


Awkward, but cute.


Grandpa's girl.


Sundays ... are the worst with small kids. Such long, hard, exhausting days!


She fit in this outfit for like twenty minutes. It says newborn size, but its the smallest newborn I've ever seen. My kids even wear newborn for awhile and sadly this cute outfit wasn't worn more than once.






Hands always by the face.


ALWAYS.


And now, a series of crazy photos brought to you by Anna.


Clearly, her self-esteem is lacking.


If you'd like a makeover, let me know.


She's pretty good, actually.


Precision!


Evil, but cute.


She makes me wipe it off so she can do it five times more.


Don't do drugs kids!


Reeeeeal thick there.


Spoiler alert! I survived the first few weeks of having THREE kids! Writing this now, it all seems like a busy dream. I love newborn babies, but man, the first three months are killer. I feel like 3+ months is always a turning point for me - I reemerge into society, take a shower (occasionally) and start cooking dinner again. Just typing all that makes me feel amazing!

If you can keep your humor through it all, you are winning. Bravo!
