quick little update

Hey everyone!
I know its been a while, but its also been a while since we've had a good routine going here!
Natalie will be 4 weeks old tomorrow, and 3 of those 4 weeks I have been sick.
1st with 2 back to back breast infections, and then with the sinus thing.
Carson had a 101 fever this past weekend, and Sierra came home early today with the same fever.
Add a bunch of not sleeping into the mix , along with 3 parent teacher conferences, a billion dr. appointments, trying desperately to get re-organized and clean after months of bedrest, taking care of 4 other children along with my newborn, and well.....
Its been crazy to say the least!

I feel though, that things are now getting back on track.
Its a good feeling!

Natalie is sweet as honey!
She is VERY alert and loves to be talked to.
She 's a good, good baby girl.
Only cries if she's hungry, or needs a diapey change.......okay and sometimes because she wants to be held......but thats okay cause I wanna hold her.........who wouldn't?

She is such a special little addition to our family.......she completes us.

One girl, One boy

Mommy, Daddy, Carson, and Natalie had a nice little outing on this beautiful spring day!
Miss Natalie had her 2 week check up at the dr's office this morning.
She is not quite 7 pounds again, but she's getting there....we are going to start supplementing just a bit with some formula to bulk her up!
We will still be breastfeeding full time as well.

Afterward, we went to daddy's store to show Natalie off to her Nana Wanda.
Natalie sure liked all of that attention, she slept peacefully the whole time.
Im thinking about taking my pillow and blanket there next time so I too, can catch some sleep!

All of the little old ladies that came in and out of the store really enjoyed looking at her and talking all about her.
Carson was right by my side the whole time, drinking his cool blue slushee.
The nice old ladies thought how nice it was for me to have "One girl, and One boy".


It was cute to see them react once they learned that I actually have 3 girls, and 2 boys.

After visiting for a bit, we took our One boy to stride right to buy him some cool new sneakers to fit his WIDE WEET.
Thank goodness those stinky fireman boots are history.........but, i will admit i 'll miss seeing him in them.
They were always together.
Carson and his red fireman rainboots.
Another bittersweet memory.

As far as the new shoes......he loves them, and dosnt want to take them off.

Welcome to the world Natalie Grace

Its been a while.......huh?
We've been a little busy having a baby, and getting over a couple of nasty breast infections, while breastfeeding.
We're on the road to recovery now, and more ready than ever to get back to "life".

After a long and ridiculous labor, thanks to our "doctor", which I'll spare you the details of, because, well, in comparison to having our special girl here with us, its just not important anymore............. 36.6 weeks, little Natalie Grace came into our lives on Thursday, March 27th, at 3:07 pm.
She weighed 7 pounds even, was 18.4 inches long, and more precious than anything we could have imagined.

The other little beans are in love with, and cannot get enough of her........ever.
