First Photo

I finally got around to having Timothy's picture taken. Call it fourth/last child syndrome, whatever it is, I simply did not have the time or enthusiasm as I had with my first child. Maybe enthusiasm is not the right word, I am certainly enthusiastic about Timothy himself, just not for going out with kids in general - it is a lot of work! Anyway, the pictures turned out adorable!

Weird Boy

Dylan has been acting a little strange lately. On this day, I found him lounging in the baby's swing wearing my shower cap and a set of pretend "white trash" teeth. He has always been silly, however, since the baby arrived, this behavior has escalated substantially. Warning: this behavior is not always silly, it is also torturous and makes me want to pull my hair out at times. We still love him!

First Day of School

As far as the school schedule is concerned, summer is officially over today. Jonathan and Emily are now in the 4th and 2nd grades. They seemed anxious, excited, and nervous about this day, but I assured them they would each have a great school year filled with new friends, experiences, and knowledge. I hope I am right.

Growing So Fast

Our sweet baby Timothy is 4 months old today! Time sure has passed quickly, despite the lack of sleep and overall exhaustion. He truly lights up our family with his adorable smiles and laughter. We love you Timothy!

We had the privilege of having my two sisters, Allison and Valerie, and their children visit us a few weeks ago. I must say, I have not laughed that hard in a long time. There is something only my sisters possess that causes me to laugh in hysterics. We spent a lot of time at our neighborhood pool, going to and watching movies, celebrating birthdays, lots of talking, and just hanging out. Oh, and all those "essential" diet coke runs. Thanks again, gals, for all the fun and laughs. Sisters are the best. COME BACK SOON!!!! I miss you like no other!
