It's probably pretty easy to guess why I haven't updated our blog in the past few weeks! Four kids under five is busy!!
Elliott is now 5 weeks old. At 4 weeks he had already gained over 4 lbs and was 12 lbs 6oz! He sure looks like he's getting fed well and he looks so much like Sam did at the same age. Sam also gained a pound a week for the first six weeks of his life and so the chubby pictures look very much alike!
Here I am trying to sooth Elliott and sing songs to Owen before he goes to bed. I wish I were an octopus so I have enough arms for everyone! An extra set of eyes would be good too. We all went to Walmart last weekend and got out to the car before we realized that Owen was not with us! I thought Chris had him and he thought I did! Thankfully he was right where we left him at the checkout. But, I refuse to go to Walmart with all of them on my own at the moment. It's just too big and too easy to loose someone!
Summer has officially hit and most days are around 90oF (32oC). We got the Slip 'N Slide out last week. The kids had a blast.
Last weekend Chris had Monday off for Memorial Day. We decided to do something different and went to Aiken, a pretty town about 30 mins away. It was drizzling a bit and so the kids got to use their umbrellas. We got there just before a parade was about to start. Someone on the street commented to Chris that we were our own parade!
