1 month Comparison

Loden is one month old today. Justin and I see a little of each of us and his siblings in him. Eight years ago, it didn't occur to me to have a monthly picture with each child in a monthly onesie and in the same place. That would have been good for this post, but here's some pictures of everyone at one month old. Youngest to oldest.

2.5 Weeks With 5.0 Kids

I'd like to begin this post by saying thank you to Granola for helping us out through the last two weeks.  She is a mild mannered woman who likes peace and quiet, but she persevered through two weeks of new baby, crazy kids, and small house and gave us extra hands, clean dishes, and clean clothes with love and patience.

I have a video for those of you who have wondered what our house is like.  We don't have it all together and our children are not quiet or tidy, but they are a lot of fun.  We were in the middle of  'Take Turns Choosing Songs and Dance Hour' last night and as I looked around our house I decided that this should be documented and shared.  I love my wife for her patient strength and endurance.

Some notes before you watch.....
Loden is 2 1/2 weeks old and is pretty laid back so far.  Good for him.
West has adjusted pretty well to having a little brother and sharing his mama, but he gets mad when we make him take his fingers out of his mouth.
Annie got hit with a broom just as I started recording.  You will hear her declare that, "It was the broom's fault!"
Georgia thinks that when she dresses up in her poodle skirt she should act like a poodle (canine).  She's also wearing her Laura Engalls bonnet because they love Little House on the Prairie.
Jones is dancing with brooms and wearing leg warmers in August.  I don't know the wherefores on that one.
