Diapers, Exhaustion, and Sickness

Diapers. That's all we do. Really. That's the post. We do diapers.


and then there's the getting up sometimes 9 times a night between the 2 of us and the 3 kids (not counting the times you wake up and remind your spouse it's their turn).


and then there's the teething, diarrhea, and general not feeling good shared by some of us. No one is all out sick yet but several us are on the fringes of it.


Yet, we're all together as a family and despite it all, we love it. We're so thankful for each one of our 3 kids. We're learning them, they're learning us and each other, and we're sure things will settle down in a week or two (or at least we hope). Last night was actually better...only 1 waking between 12:00am and 7:00am. So, there just hasn't been a lot of time of posting. Once the kids go down, we're exhausted, so we've been watching some of the Olympics. We now call putting Noah down in his bed (with minimal rocking) a Phelpsian feat (you have to keep up with USA Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps to get that). :) We haven't even sat down together to go through all our trip pictures. Hope to do that soon, hope to post more soon, hope the kids sleeps good tonight.

I sure do hope you don't get sick!!!!!

It is so great to have Hannah here finally. I'm glad that we get to spend time with her now, and with the three of them together. Again, hope you guys don't get sick, and hope that you get some rest! and hope to see you soon. :D
