We are adjusting to life as a family of 5. So far things are still going considerably better than I anticipated. The girls still love miss Hadley Grace and are all about kissing her and making sure she has her paci at all times. Whenever they leave the house with daddy they are sure to make sure mommy and Hadley both get kisses. It's quite adorable!!
I try to still spend 2 hours of quality time with just the girls if at all possible during the day. Hadley tends to sleep a lot still so I leave the screen door open when me and the girls go outside, or prop her on the table if we are reading books or playing kitchen. Here is to hoping it continues to help them transition this smooth knowing mommy still has time to spend with them.
Here we are having a car wash... Mommy
got a good tan and their cars got cleaned after being sprayed with grass remnants when we mowed the yard.
Miss Hadley Grace has been just the biggest blessing these first two weeks! We are hopeful her contentment continues. She is still nursing and sleeping 4 hours at a time at nights with an occasional 5 hour snooze.
We were able celebrate my grandparents 60th wedding anniversary this past weekend. Hopefully I can post some more pictures later this week. So thankful that grandpa is doing well and it was amazing as all 81 of us were able to be together for the day on Saturday.
It was a big weekend for these little girls. We had a few moments of chaos but for the most part Colin and I did pretty good being outnumbered. We were all thankful for a few moments of quiet at nights tho!
The girls seem so big now. Remembering them at Hadley's age feels like just yesterday, but then I turn around and they are playing dress up with Mommys shoes or making me coffee in their kitchen and I am reminded all to well how fast time goes.
Grocery shopping at the Steidinger household.
Hadley's place of safety. Until one of us forgets to pull our chair back after eating and then she is quickly overtaken by her big sisters.
While hadley doesn't get held near as much as her sisters did during the day she does get spoiled in other ways. I never got to take the girls on outings with me. So it's really fun to be able to take Hadley along when I run to appts.
And m&m don't mind going to grandmas with the "kitties & chickens"
We did manage the Tazewell fair this week. Although it would have been fairly impossible without the help of aunt "elsieeeee"
She seriously is the best!
Waiting patiently for uncle klaytons turn to show his "bunnies"
Isn't he just the best uncle!! Love how much these girls are getting attached to their uncles lately.
Miss elowen sage came for a visit yesterday. 2weeks vs 11weeks. Isn't she just a little thing. So excited to have a baby girl so close with one of my friends. Here's to hoping they get along and like to hang out in the future.
So you may be wondering about all the quotations. As I've mentioned before my blog is a bit of a diary/journal for my girls as they get older. So all the words in quotes are words that they can say. And just another side note, I never proofread! Ever! And I'm terrible at grammar and punctuation so again I apologize for all the errors but it's usually a fast and furious process to get my blogs done and up before somebody needs fed or changed.
God bless and thanks for reading!
