Has it been 1 week already?

Jan 30th, 2011

I cannot believe that it has already been a week since I had this darling little cutie! The last week is a blur. “Tired” is an understatement…”exhausted” may not even be strong enough. I had a friend tell me that she was thinking about getting the words “I’m tired” tattooed to her forehead after she had her fourth child. I now know what she was talking about! How do people survive with more kids than 4? All I know is that I have been SPOILED. ROTTEN. this week. I haven’t had to cook a thing, and my Mom and Dad were here for most of it. My Mom did all my laundry, cleaned her heart out, and watched my kiddos. So, when I have to start cooking myself, and doing the laundry again. I’m in for it.

I couldn’t resist showing you an updated picture I snapped of the babe. I know I’m biased, but I think he’s the most handsome baby I’ve ever seen (at least since my last one was born). :)


  1. He is TOO Beautiful!
    I dont know how anyone does it with more than ONE child! You guys are my Heroes!

  2. Oh my gosh, he is ADORABLE!!! Zombie mode is the hardest thing ever. Hang in there! It's great that you've had so much help, that makes a big difference when you get a running start in the beginning. OH! And I just found out that you were friends and visiting teaching companion with my cousin Melissa! It's such a small world! And I linked to your awesome blog in my post at natsprat.blogspot.com. You're my hero. :)

  21. Oh, he really IS a beautiful baby!! Love all those wrinkles. So cute!! I just found out today that my 3rd is a girl. I'm nervous about adding a 3rd! I don't know how people do it with so many kids either.

    I'm not sure if you'll remember me… but my husband and I lived in Pine Valley, so we knew Dan well! And we ran into him picking up a table for you at a yard sale a while back – and that's how I found out about your blog! Anyway – congrats on the little one! He looks just like Dan. We're happy for you guys!

  24. Those sweet baby rolls are beyond adorable! Wish they looked so cute on me!

  29. I just had my fourth a few months ago, and it is kicking my trash!! :) My kids are 5, 4, 3 and 6 month old. Because of #4 I just barely read this post that was put up over a month ago! And I used to check your blog a couple of times a day just to see if there was something new up! haha. So I hear ya on the busy thing. I hope it's getting easier for you. Good luck and hang in there! He is adorable, so that makes it all worth it, right? :)
