Cute kids

Lucy loves dress up.
This morning she found the hats.
 He peed out of his diaper when we were dropping kids off at school, so he was in the middle of getting a new outfit.

Just another day

She got him to sleep.
 He got woke up. So I handed him over to Lucy.
 This is the culprit that woke up the little dude.
Something about, its only his brother and no girls can hold him.
 Lucy got bored, so then it was Ben's turn.
Brigham kept sucking on the pacifier funny and Ben thought it was hilarious.

 The next door neighbor (Ally's friend) showed Ally how to make fabric flowers.
She was so excited.

They can't help themselves

Everyone loves this little dude.
 Josey is still the best at helping him with his pacifier.
When I am trying to finish up something and he's wanting mommy, Josey is so sweet with him.
She sings him a song and it goes something like this "go to sleep, go to sleep, go to sleep little Brigham". 
 Lucy likes holding him, but not for long.  Most of the time she's oblivious to the fact that he's crying.
 Ally is a good helper with holding him when I need an extra big person to hold him.
 Ben is so good at talking to him and interacting with him, as long as the tv is off.

smiles and giggles

He is so fun.
I love that he recognizes my voice and gets excited.

Brigham the tank Horn

He had his 2 month check up today.  He is 15.8lbs and 24.5in long.  He is my heaviest 2 month old.  Josey was my record holder at 14.8.  He and Ben tie for length (which doesn't really count until they can stand up on their own to get measured).  Little man is obviously eating well and growing like a champ.  At this rate the pediatrician said he won't be a quarterback, but has great potential to play center or lineman. 

Ally is growing up too fast

At the dr. they said Ally weighs 60 lbs.  She's growing up (literally) too fast for me. 
I am hoping this little guy slows down so I can enjoy the time with him.

Painting fun

Lucy and Josey love to paint.
They don't care what kind of paints, they just prefer a paintbrush and something to dip the brush in. 
I finally remembered to buy water colors since those seem to be the easiest to clean up.
They were SO excited.  The big kids are excited as well.

A sick 1 in the bunch

Brigham is so awesome.
Here's 1 BIG reason why he's so awesome.
This morning we dropped Ben off at preschool and went to the pediatrician because Ally is sick.
After a student nurse practitioner and then the pediatrician look over Ally very thoroughly, he decides we need to do a chest x-ray and a nose swab.  He was thinking it was 1 of 3 things: pneumonia, flu or viral.  So the 2 crazy girls, the still sleeping baby, the sick looking 7 yr old and I walk down the hall to do these 2 things in the outpatient area.  Lucy was great.  Brigham slept the ENTIRE time we were there.  Ally was brave for the x-ray and the nose swab and didn't complain too terribly much that she didn't feel well.  And Jo was not nearly as awful as she has been.  I was so grateful that Brigham slept the whole time.  On our walk to the van, he woke up hungry, so I fed him in the van before we left to pick up Ben.  Oh and there's another thing I am super grateful for, a great friend that was able to pick Ben up for me (her daughter is in Ben's class at school and church) since I didn't know ahead of time we'd be doing extra stuff at the hospital.  He was more than bummed I came to pick him up. 

I got the results from the tests we did today for Ally. 
She has the flu. 
Today is my sister Tiffney's birthday and she found out she's having a boy at the end of July.
My sister in law also finds out what the gender of her baby is today.
Ben is hoping for 2 boy babies, to try to even out the ratio.

Happy day

First, Happy Birthday Grandma Angie!

 This little guy is a crack up.  He is so much fun.  He will give Josey the biggest smiles.

Presidents Day

We cuddled with this little guy a lot.
I love this outfit.
 The kids made all sorts of crazy messes.

This group makes sure to keep things exciting.

Ben wanted to go to church dressed like this.
 He proceeded to pose himself for pictures.
 Sorry dude no Chipendale wannabe's at church.
Go put on a shirt, socks and shoes for church.
 The rest of us didn't make it to church.
Something about molars and feelings and wanting to stay home. 

 After arriving home from a fun evening at grandma's house, Jo decided to turn into a monkey.
Well this monkey thought it'd be fun to jump off her bed onto her brother, who only weighs a few pounds more than she does.  So they fell into the bunk bed or so they say that's how it all happened.
Her first double bloody nose.

We all love Brigham

The big kids can't hold the little guy enough.
