I can totally do 3 kids (!?!?!)

I just can't do anything else.
clean my house
run errands
go to the grocery store
cook dinner
fold laundry
my church calling.

The list goes on and on.

So, on second thought...maybe I'm not really doing 3 kids
: )

But, we're alive and well.
Here's the pics to prove it.

Getting Noah to pose for a picture always takes some negotiating.
i.e. he would only take this pic if he could hold his library book.
weird, yes

And he insisted this picture go on the blog, so he could show his Grandmas how strong he is

Avery in "school"
She sits in her bouncer and stares at Noah while he teaches her about life.

Oh, Alex and her faces

Little Miss Sunshine...last scene. That's all I'm gonna say.

Yes, Avery's hair does have a reddish tint to it

One last (or first) picture with Grandma and all three kids

So, yes, things are crazy.
Noah and Alex are crazy.
But that's just business as usual around here - I actually think they're adjusting really well.

The kids seem to be thriving.
It's me that's surviving.

p.s. all these pics of Avery are at least 3 weeks old, taken by my mom when she was still here. Guess that's another one of those things I'm not doing yet - taking pictures of my baby.
She's much fatter now.
(And thankfully, I'm not as fat as I was 3 weeks ago)

Great post! Hang in there - 3 kids is a big undertaking. I'll be happy to take MORE pictures of Avery when I am there next weekend :) Can't wait to see you all!

Summer - I just read something that made me think of you and your stage in life - I just had to share:

"I said to him, “Someday, we’ll look back, and it will be hard to remember that we ever had such little kids. We’ll say, ‘Remember when Eleanor still used her purple sippy cup, or when Eliza wore ruby slippers all the time?’”
He squeezed my hand. “We’ll say, ‘That was such a happy time.’”
The days are long, but the years are short. "

I so agree!

I am laughing out loud at the Little Miss Sunshine picture of Alex!!! And Avery is the cutest ever :) Can't wait to see you guys in 2 days!!!!!!!!!!

Melissa said...

I'd have to agree with that first picture.

Noah's library book? cracks me up.

I love this post. It is so TRUE. I'm still trying to figure out how to take care of all of my kids and our life... it's definitely an adjustment. I love your mom's quote, I need to remember that! :)
