The Dudes

Let me tell you how impossible it is to get three kids to sit still for a picture...  not going to happen. But this is the best I could do.  Golly gee, I love these boys.
We are getting into a routine of mommy and Deacon classes and mommy and Finn classes. Along with MOPS and getting Everett off to preschool.  I prefer to have at home days, and be hermits, but it's good for all of us to get out and be sociable. 

Not much else is new around here.  People ask me if its been hard going from two kids to three and honestly, it's not a huge change. Ask me again in 6 months and I might tell you differently. For me, it was going from no kids to one that was the hardest. Not that Everett was a hard baby, but I was so used to my freedom for so long, it was a really big adjustment to care for a child 24/7.  Once I got that down, having a second and third were just added bonuses. I'm so happy with my boys, I love them to pieces... even on the days they make want to hide in the bathroom and cry. It's all wonderful in the end.

School Days

Is that a baby or a doll? 

Science Nerd Alert

Not too cool for school 

Everett is officially a preschooler! My baby is a big boy now and I just have to learn to deal. So far I think he likes school. But it's hard to tell because he won't give me a strait answer. He likes his quiet time when he comes home and if I ask him too many questions he says, MOM! Stop that behavior!!!
We enrolled him in one program two days a week in the morning for two hours. At the same time we applied for another school not thinking we would get in... and we did. So he goes to two schools. And one of them he gets to ride the bus! Which is huge for Everett! We are trying both schools for a month and if it seems too overwhelming, we'll scale back to one school. But I think, he is having fun, learning to play with other kids, and getting the structure he needs that I just can't give him at this time with a 20 month old and a newborn at home.

Because this is what happens when I'm too busy to play with him...

 I never thought I would take such a long break from blogging. I stopped posting right after January of this year and never got back to it. Mostly because I was pregnant, tired, busy, and chasing around two toddlers. I'm not even sure if I'll continue to blog regularly from now on, but I wanted to share a few things going on before I signed off again.

On August 1, we welcomed out newest addition to the family...

  Finnley Parker! 

He is such a sweet, easy going baby so far. A great eater and sleeper too! We are slowly adjusting to having another baby in the family. The big boys are too busy to really care a whole lot, and they are pretty good about playing together.  One more week and Tim goes back to work. He's had the whole summer off, so I think him going back to work will be the biggest adjustment of all.  Everett starts preschool in a few weeks and we are trying to shape up a calender of toddler\baby classes and mom groups to keep us all busy.

Everett the wild man

Summer is coming to an end and even with a new baby, we are trying to stay as busy and have as much fun as possible. I'll try to be better about blogging in the future. But for now we are off another adventure.

Baby 3 will be here August 2014

Obviously, we are so excited! It's going to be crazy, but we are already Living La Vida Loca, so why not?!
We are planning on finding out the gender, but not until mid - March.
Girl? Boy?  Hmmm....

Cold Days\Snow Days

It's been so cold here! Actually, the Twin Cities just ranked #1 in Cities that were allowed to complain about the cold. School was shut down Monday and Tuesday (great for us because then daddy can stay home) but if you want to do anything outside you are out of luck. 
Thankfully, we've had a heat wave today! 30 degrees ABOVE zero! On Monday it was 30 degrees BELOW zero! 
We took advantage of this day by spending some time outside as a family, sledding and hanging out in the snow. You may notice a new furry pet in our family... Say hello to Sprinkles our Shih tzu puppy!
