We Are Alive!

Alright, here we are again. Can I just say that 3 kids has ROCKED our world! Holy moly. This little girl is wonderful and precious and we totally LoVe her, but January is the soonest after she was born that I have had a minute to finally get some pics up here. So here are few from Christmas, a few from Jack's bday, and a few of the babe. Enjoy!

I wanted to put this at the end of this post, and leave you with a "Peace out" from Dave, but it didn't land in the right spot. So, we'll start with a little "peace", because that is hard to find at our house right now.
I know she looks a little Amish in this sweater, but someone hand-knitted this number and so we must take pictures for their enjoyment. Plus she's smiling, and looks so cute!

Jack got a new bike because his old one was getting down-right too small for the lad. Honestly, he's not much of a morning person and walked right past the thing on his way to feed his face. I had to bribe him to sit there and half-smile! Seriously, who wouldn't be happy about this sweet Star Wars bike.
And here is the big birthday cake. I made it in about a 1/2 hour. It wasn't my best work, in fact the back of it wasn't even frosted because I ran out of frosting and didn't have time to make more. Those are Star Wars figurines he picked out himself. Don't judge me too harshly. I'll do better next year!
Here's the loot from family and friends. The Star Wars Guess Who has been a big hit.
And there's the birthday boy. 5 years old.
May I introduce you to the Miracle Blanket that truly has brought the "Gift of Sleep" into our home. You wrap the kid up and she can't move her arms one inch. These days she really is sleeping between 7 and 8 hours every night. Bless her sweet soul! On a sidenote, she did NOT sleep that long for many, many, many weeks.
These pictures are in a very random order. Here is Baylee with all her goods. She was super excited about her new clothes and pacifiers. So excited in fact, that Christmas morning she slept-in until eight o'clock.
Jack with his DS. It has been both a life-saver and a hindrance. I had to set up a time limit for every day, but the DS has blessed us with less fighting between the brothers.
Here's Buzz Lightyear with his light saber. He has a laser and he will use it! I do really think that his favorite gift was his new shoes. He put them on and wore them the rest of the day.
Notice our delightful Christmas tree in the background. It was a Wal-Mart special last year. I made the boys ABC books. Brigham likes to read his every night. I think Jack has looked at his once, maybe twice. Boy, I really did a terrible job of Christmas pictures this year. I'm going to blame it on...
I came home one day to find Baylee dressed like this. She had a onesie under all those layers as well. Dave said he dressed her and didn't want to have to undress her and go through the process all over again! Seriously!!
She's starting to smile people. And it's really cute.
I took her in for her 2 month appointment and the kid is in the 76th percentile for weight! She's a short, chubby little girl, with a perfectly round head. At least one of our kids finally likes to eat. I honestly think that Jack never even made the weight chart.
I love her!! As my friend Jacque said, "They start out like this, and then they turn into that!"
I tell you, these boys LOVE this little girl. They call her "sissy" a lot, and give her kisses all day long. Maybe someday they will get along with each other.

awe jen, you need to post more often! love your whitty humore ;) Your sort of freaking me out a bit about the whole "3 kids thing" but yours certainly are super cute! And call me "omish" but I honestly LOVE anything hand knitted or crochet'd for baby girls! Claira got these pink crochet'd booties as a gift and I loved them so much I saved them and had abby wear them too! I laughed out loud at the way Dave dressed And I bet even though your boys fight like crazy now, they will be best friends when they get older :) Hugs from Florida!!

What a beautiful new addition. Good to see you are all still kickin'.

She's so cute! And good job on the cake, looks better than mine do. lol Sorry we didn't answer Dave's call when he called Jeff, the kids were screaming in the car, so they wouldn't be able to hear each other anyway. Anyway, welcome back to the land of blogging. Although I have been failing with mine. Good thing Jeff post pics at least.

Wow, I can't believe how big Baylee is getting already! She is so adorable! Happy Birthday to Jack. I can't believe you are defending your star wars cake that you made in 1/2 hour while 3 little ones ran around the looks store bought/decorated to me! I couldn't even make a cake that looked that good if I had 5 hours to make it. Seriously!
