Evelyn lost her first tooth

Evelyn lost her first tooth. It was going to be pushed out by her adult tooth. It came out easily though. The tooth fairy came and brought her floss, a new toothbrush, and toothpaste. She loved it.

Liams birthday take 2

We had to have another birthday celebration for Liam. He had too much presents for just once day so here is Liam's birthday take 2. He got a book on how to be a Jedi. Lots of Legos and even some that glowed in the dark. He also got a wood working set. He had a lovely day and we loved it.



More Lilleith

I love this little one. She is starting to wake up more every day and she likes to eat all the time. I love having a chubby baby for once.

Lilleith is the cutest model ever.




Things that just shouldn't be said

Delsa keeps trying to take her diaper off but she won't stop peeing on the floor either so she will stay in diapers until I see fit. But she loves to sit on the toilet too. This is what I heard today.
Clif talking to Delsa "We don't put our feet in the toilet, it is NOT a pool".
Never thought I would ever heard that said.

Difference in sitting arrangements

This is how Adele chose to watch a show today
This is how the other 3 decided to watch a show.
Same house, same rules. Way different in personality. I laughed for a long time.

Lilleith week 2

I can't help myself. She is adorable. Lilleith is going to be a chunky baby if she keeps eating well. I can't help but squish her all the time. She is starting to wake up a little more every day. I just want to hold her all the time and not do anything else all day. How can I do anything else?




Notice the cute chubby cheeks? She gained 4 oz in less than 2 days. I am so excited, I have wanted a chubby baby for a long time. I just think I am in love.

Delsa the disaster

I am not explaining. I think the pictures show what she does on a daily basis. At least this time she wasn't on top of the refrigerator. 




Cute pictures of Lilleith

This family is so excited to have Lilleith in our family. I hope that she feels the love.








Liams 8 birthday


Our beloved boy turned 8, yep that is right, 6 kids technically under 8 years. Crazy family. Back to Liam. He is such a great kid. We love his smarts. Liam is going to be a great engineer one day or a evil master. Its up in the air most days what way he is headed but we know he is going to be great at something one way or another. He loves to draw and design his inventions. He is always wanting to watch either the history channel or discovery. He loves to be with his dad and work on a project. He started cub scouts and he loves it. He has discovered a real love for everything outside. 
This is how he is every morning. He loves to watch lego shows and history shows. He is very sweet but he does not like to eat breakfast. I hate that we argue about it a lot but he is not a breakfast person much like his mom. He has suprised us though, he likes fried eggs with a runny middle like his mom during this  pregnancy. I have never liked breakfast and hated eggs. I eat them all the time and love the company.
This is a variation of that theme. He wanted breakfast buritos for his birthday. Clif made them and they were awesome.
It was the Sabbath and so we didn't go anywhere so we opened presents instead. He got a Hero Factory Lego set and promptly put it together. He can do them pretty much by himself with a little clarification from Clif or I.
He got a remote control car.
I found some books for him to read. One book was on Ancient Egypt, one was on Rocks and Minerals, and the last one was on Mammals. He loves to read about those things. He studies them and then draws what he learns.
When we turn 8 in our families we receive our own scriptures. So Liam got his own quad with his name on it. He was so excited.
 He wanted to have Lasagna so we did. It was really good, and let me say I didn't cook it so thank you Alisa. You made his day.

So Liam wanted carrot cake and Clif came to the rescue. He made him a cake and did all the meals. Clif really did awesome providing a good birthday for Liam. I was totally feeling bad for him since Clif also had to do all of the Twins birthday too. This is the year of the super Clif. Clearly though he makes awesome kids and he better love being around Liam, I see a whole lot of fishing for Clif and Liam in the future.

July 4th

Clif had the kids to himself since I was in the hospital with Lilleith. These are the pictures he took. He said the kids loved it. I am so sad to miss it but I love that he participated in the festivities with the kids.







Lilleith is born.

Lilleith finally came on Wednesday at 2:38 pm. We went to the hospital at 7 on Tuesday night. Unfortunately this was a repeat of Adele's birth so I was in labor stuck at a 5 until 7 am on Wednesday. My Dr. broke my water after that and can I just say, I had so much water I could have baptised the baby multiple times. My Dr. mentioned that I lost 10 lbs just from that. Which is fine in my opinion, I didn't think I needed a huge baby. I pushed for 2 3/4 hours to finally have Lilleith in the afternoon. She was huge at 8 lbs 3 oz and 19 1/2 inches long. She was perfect.


 Right after she was born, however, she couldn't maintain her glucose level or temperature and so she had to be put in the nicu for 3 days. Lilleith is doing fine now, and has no problem eating or holding her temperature.

 Clif brought the kids to see us. This is us at the NICU and I know it is blurry but I wanted them to know how excited they were to have a new baby.
On Saturday morning they released us to go home. Look how awake she is. She is a sweet baby and we are so thrilled to have her in our family. We love you Lilleith.
