A week ago, we had a nice rain and I decided that I would be nice enough and let the kids go outside in the rain to run around in, splash in, and get all wet. Not everyone took me up on this offer. But 5 of the 8 young'uns did!! What's one more load of laundry, eh?
This little guy has now been crawling for just over two weeks now and can get everywhere he wants. Including the laundry basket!!! Isn't he the cutest laundry helper ever??
---#3---Sams trip stocking up on groceries for the week - only hubby, these two little cuties and myself...
Pope Francis arrived in the US on Tuesday, and like I mentioned, we had to celebrate his visit from afar. Flat Francis has been hanging out with us and has come along to some activities with us this week. Poor sweet Flat Francis hasn't made it to all of our events and was left at home or out in the van. It's been fun though, for sure!! We've especially enjoyed watching EWTN all week. And, I can't wait to read this post with link-ups from many of the ladies from CWBN (Catholic Women's Blogging Network).
Who needs a toy drum, starring our little guy, Yoda??....
Both Melody and Mario have been cast to star in Hansel and Gretel, that our local junior theatre will be performing next month. So, we've been trucking here at least three times a week for play practices, not to mention the other two acting classes our kids are in! Thank goodness the grounds are beautiful and there is so much room for our kids, not in practice/class, to run and play.
Tired momma with baby who doesn't sleep very well..... yeah, that's me. In this picture, I had just got nursing lil Yoda and got him to sleep. He sleeps only after being rocked, nursed, or traveling in the van. Never falls asleep on his own in his crib. No schedule whatsoever. He'll be one in a couple of weeks. Still doesn't sleep through the night. Wakes/nurses at least twice. I'm okay and love him to pieces, but man, am I tired. I've never had a baby with sleep patterns like this. And, I just can't lay him down and let him cry it out. That's just not me. Funny with him being my 8th, things are just so different. Silly guy!
