First off I want to say sorry for the lack of pictures. Living with the in-laws has made downloading pictures very difficult as well as taking care of 4 under 2! Hopefully Josh can hook up my lab top soon to the internet and that will make it a bit easier. Right now we are using the in-laws computer. Like I said in a previous post, I have lots of pictures, just have not found the time to down load them or hook up my lab top!
The girls are doing good for the most part. It's been rough with a new baby, so my parents have had them a lot to help me stay sane! Even then it gets really hard. They are taking well to their temporary home. It has been better than I thought it would be. It is not 100 percent baby proofed like our house was, so it gets tough chasing them around or telling them no to stay out of something. Lots of people coming and going, especially after bedtime gets rough too since it keeps them awake and out of their "normal" schedule. Hopefully we get our house soon and can get back into a good routine and have all our things back!
Makenna has been quite the bully lately, but then she is also so lovey! She loves to give hugs and kisses, if she is in the mood. She has to go around and give everyone in the room a hug and kiss. She is having problems when it comes to taking toys from her sisters. She makes the best faces ever, she is so cute, she always makes me laugh!
Jaeli is still the laid back one, but has her temper at times. She gets so mad! And she loves the word 'no'. If we say it to one of the other girls, she has to see why so she can come over and do it too. She just smiles, even after she gets in trouble multiple times! She also loves to laugh, its so much fun tickling her. Her laugh is so cute, makes me smile everytime!
Maysie is still all drama. I think she has some teeth coming in, so she has been very fussy lately! Other than that, she has been doing pretty good. She loves to spin, especially when daddy spins her. They will all spin in circles by themselves, but I would say she does it the most! She is always attached to me, especially now that I can't pick her up since I had Jace. It is tough, but usually someone here to hand her to me.
Jace has been...well...difficult at times. I love every minute of it, but man, I don't get much sleep. It wears me down. He is only 2 weeks old, so hopefully it ends soon, but he is confused and has his nights and days still confused. I have been sleeping in the recliner every night with him because that is the only way I can get sleep! He will sleep 4 or 5 hours straight, but I put him anywhere else, crib, bouncer, etc.. he cries until I hold him and eventually falls asleep in my arms. I don't want to sleep in bed with him, just don't feel safe, but at least in the recliner I can not roll on him. I don't think either one of us moves much at all during those 4 hours we sleep together. He will sleep in the bouncer just find all day long if I let him. He has his days where he wants to eat ALL the time and some days not much at all. I bought a battery operated pump today hoping I can pump on occasion so Josh can take over a feeding or two at night. Grandma j has been a huge help the last couple nights. She takes over for me after I feed so I can sleep in my bed for a couple hours before he is ready to eat again. Josh usually gets home too late to do it. Other than that, he is such a sweet baby, does not cry much unless he is hungry or gassy. Love his hair! He looks like Josh and Makenna! I think he will have dark brown hair eventually and brown eyes just like Josh.
Hopefully post pics of the girls soon!
