Family update

So here is a little update of our little or "not so little" family...

Samson is doing great! He is quite the eater. He is such a sweet little guy, he really only fusses when he is hungry. This is a picture of him with his little cast on for his club foot. I have to get it changed weekly for 6 straight weeks. Kind of a pain, but for sure worth it! It's nice to get it over with now, than later when it would affect him much more. He continues to bring smiles and laughter to our home on a daily basis.

Cici girl cracks me up. She is so sweet, but also kind of a stinker. DRAMA! We love her so much. She is really showing signs of wanting to be potty trained, I am just not quite ready to face the challenge. Hopefully we'll get it taken care of sooner than later. We'll see...with 3 kids I'm having to find a totally new routine.

Max...such a sweet big brother! He is kind of a pest to Cici though, I think he thinks it's his job to tease her all day. He is SO excited to start preschool next week, as am I. He thrives in a learning environment.

Alright well that's it for now. As for Frank and I...we are surviving! BUSY BUSY BUSY Frank started his masters this week and is so busy training all of the athletic teams up here. I was thinking today while I was in the shower...Wow you know you are busy with 3 little kids when it's been like 3 or 4 days since you've shaved your arm pits because you are trying to hurry so fast in the shower. HA HA HA what a wonderful life...I really wouldn't trade it I promise!

our precious little guy

We can't get enough of him! Who could resist that curly hair and newborn smell? We all absolutely adore him. There really is something special about having a new little spirit in your home.

Born on August 10th at 9:07 p.m.
weighing in at 7lbs 7 oz. and 20 1/2 inches long

his poor face got so beat up because he was posterior. POOR GUY! Frank says it looks like he lost a boxing match. The doc said the bruising should be significantly better within the next few days. Just thought I would post something quick to let you all know that he's arrived. We are both doing is just a little crazy right now with three kiddos. I'll post more later. Max loves him to death and can't get enough of him and Cici...she's kinda struggling with the whole attention thing. She'll adjust soon enough though--hopefully! :)

Good Friends

WOW! I have truly always been blessed with great friends. That's one thing that I love about summer, it seems like there is always a little more time to catch up with friends you don't get to see very often. This first pic is of my roommates and I from my freshman year in college. So much fun! They are all such amazing examples to me! I hope we continue to plan at least a yearly get together, if not more often.
p.s. keep in mind I am nine months pregnant, so obviously these pics are not very flattering...I just wanted to have these pics of my cute friends for the memories!

Aleese and cute little Barrick and Frank and I and our kids met up at Red Robin for lunch. We missed Scotty (one of Frank's mission companions). I am so glad I got to see them while they are in town from Maryland.

Later last night I went to Julie's baby shower. SO good to see a ton of my high school friends! I swear I'm not anti social, but it's been way too long since I've seen these ladies! I think about 5 of us are pregnant right now...CrAzY!
ChEeRS to good friends...let the good times roll!
