Getting back to Normal.....well almost

I finally have a minute to sit down and update. The last 9 weeks have been crazy...but the last 3 have been overwhelmingly CRAZY!! I've started to update on a couple different occasions but didn't have the words. We are STILL out of our house but we finally see a light at the end of the road....we are officially moving HOME the last weekend in July. We are thrilled to say the least.....we will be moving into a very different place...I've changed most every color that was previously in our home...we are excited about the changes...but more so are just happy to be going home. My parents have been wonderful and we appreciate them more than words but their house is not our home...our kids are in need of their own environment...and momma is in need of her own BED!!! :)

During this entire ordeal our children have been truly amazing...I am so proud of each one of them. They have grown and changed so much this summer...but no one more than sweet Sophia....she has changed from a little baby to this wild..into eveything child. She doesn't ever miss a thing and one day soon will be running around after her sisters and brother....but for now she is content to crawl as fast as she can after them!!! She has her two bottom teeth now...and the girl knows how to use them...ouch!!! Grace, Isabelle and Samuel love her so much and are so much more interested these days about her...because she is often standing at their level. Grace leads the pack as Sophia's 2nd mom....I caught her the other day clapping Sophia's hands singing patty-cake...so sweet!!!

The trio are still amazing us everyday with their speech...we are constantly laughing at new phrases that they've picked up. Most are bits and pieces of things we have said...so watching what comes out of our mouths is a priority. I recently discovered that I say "now" alot...and Isabelle has taken to saying it ALOT...."Mommy, I watch Diego...NOW." Not exaclty how I like my two year old to talk to me...but I am the reason she says it...so we are working on being more polite.

I know I have so much more to share with you...but I have a couple monkeys waking up....I promise to be better about posting...three weeks is waaay to long.... I will try to share pictures from the last few weeks as I get to them...but for now I will share a couple of the girls with you...these were taken on the *farm* in Parsons (Samuel was napping)

.....My Three Amazing, Beautiful Daughters....how Blessed I am!! Love, Jen
