Proof of life

Just a couple more pictures to include The Bigs so you know they're still around.

He reads thie book to her everyday.

Look who gets to ride in the front pouch?!?!

Tyler doing part of her homework, sight words to be exact.

Austin later on when she got home taking care of some math facts.

I loved this shot - the oldest's foot and the youngest's.

Jackson photo bombing - boy does he look like me there?

But a blink...

Everything in life seems to fly by so but a blink.  Every time I turn around I am amazed by how fast the days/weeks/months go.  Hunter is officially 5 months old, which also means that I have been looking for work for the past five months too.  I suppose the best thing about the job hunt so far would be that I am no longer nervous for interviews and eventually I have to find something that will work for us, hopefully I will still get to be a witness to these little people in their daily lives.

I caught myself the other day thinking (foolishly) that I do the same thing day in and day out, but the truth is as long as these kiddos are growing and changing nothing that I do on a daily basis is the same.

Look at this little princess and her first two teeth!?!?

She is simply the happiest little baby, she loves to be a part of anything we are doing and as long as she can be around her siblings she's ecstatic. 

Every morning when the "Bigs" leave for school me and the "Littles" head to the playroom and watch the magic happen.  Like building blocks in the sunbeams. 

Or chewing on her elephant that has stood the test of time and been loved by all four kids. 

Playing jungle like as in The Jungle Book that we watched the other night, which by the way is a fantastic movie.

Crawling up to play with his sister. 

Or read his favorite book to her. 

Jackson is obsessed with the new four wheeler, he calls it a bike.  So now in the play room he rides his "bike" but true to form and what I am scared would happen in real life....he only really knows how to crash.

Joe took him around the yard real quick since he gets so excited to watch his sisters on it.  And yes to answer anyone's question...I am not a fan of the four wheeler and am just waiting for someone to get hurt.  I spend a lot of my time while they are on it, hiding inside so I don't have to watch what I feel is the inevitable.  To date though, only Goose has wrecked it and didn't even get hurt, obviously that doesn't make me feel any better though.
