Clare is 6!

I have been teasing Clare all week, telling her that we are going backwards now and that she is turning four.  But I guess I just have to accept the fact that we now have a big six year old.  We love you, Clare!

Polar Bears for Maggie & Bea

We were well overdue to take Bea and Maggie’s photos with their Gree Gree stuffed animals.  She has purchased special stuffed animals for each baby during my pregnancies, and I have taken special photos of them with the animals.  It seems like I have waited longer each time, probably due to the craziness of our daily lives.  Grace and Jacob’s pictures are from when they were 3 months old.  Clare is 4 months in her picture.  Maggie and Bea are 5 months exactly in theirs.  Their stuffed animals are off-white, so you can’t really see the color in these photos.  I still think they turned out really cute though!

Random Phone Pics

Finally got a bunch of pictures off my phone.  Lots and lots of random ones.  Here are a few…

Girls go to Taylor Swift concert – Clare is hiding, then Aunt Chelsea, then Me (with Bea and Maggie, in utero –  it really was a girls’ night out!), then Grace, Aunt Kelly was taking the pic

I have almost no pics of me pregnant with Bea and Maggie.  I guess one of the kids was being sneaky.  I’m 32 weeks here.

Naked tummy time for Bea and Maggie – both babies had bad rashes from disposable diapers and wipes, lots of naked butt time and a change to cloth cleared it all up!
