Babies, babies, babies...and other stuff :)

These are some pics of the girls (left to right...Allie, Reese, Juliet) from our most recent photo session :)....and Luke....he had to be in it too! The girls are so sweet these days...always smiling and laughing and they are growing so fast! Luke is still as sweet and funny as ever. He's trying to talk a little now, well...he talks alot, but it's just "jibberish"...we can't understand a thing he says! We are training him well, though....notice him sweeping the kitchen floor! :)

We've been traveling like crazy these past couple of weeks....back and forth visiting our families. I'm kinda surprised at how well the kids travel. Luke just watches cartoons on the DVD player and the girls sleep all the time.....who ever said traveling with four kids is hard? :) Now, PACKING for four kids....that's another story. We went down to the coast to visit Chad's family last weekend. We started packing the night before which made it a little easier, but it's have to pack up God's creation when you leave and you gotta have all these plans like "where are the girls gonna sleep?" and "where are we gonna sleep?" and lets not forget about sweet big brother! Plus, we have to actually take food and formula to feed all these kiddos. It is a trip!! but it's also a lot of fun, too! As much as I have complained about how hard things are (WHICH IT IS), it's getting a little easier. The girls have started sleeping around 5 to 6 hours at night which is SUCH A BLESSING. I never realized how well I can function on such little sleep!...and Chad too. I mean, he actually has a job where he has to get up and GET DRESSED and use his brain all day long. I would pass out or just sit there and stare at the wall. I seem to spend half of my day (at least) in my PJ's. It's not very glamorous, I know. BUT...I think we are finally figuring out how to handle all the kids at the same time, plus everything else that goes on in running a household! MULTI-TASKING will definitely go on my resume if I ever get another job :).

Anyway....I just wanted to update everyone on what's going on over here. Also...we are fixing up the house we'll be living in when we move. So, the moving process has started! It's REALLY bittersweet, though 'cause we love it over here. We will really miss the neighborhood we live in, but it will be nice to be close to family!! My sister is having TWIN BOYS in the fall, so all the kids will be able to play together when they get older. It's gonna be fun!
