Friday morning!

Yay! Friday is here! This week has actually gone by pretty fast in spite of a few rough moments with those sweet little R's! We LOVE weekends around here because it means that Daddy is home!! Not sure who gets more excited, me or the kids?!

Some "highlights" of our week
  • Soph "jumped" out of her crib onto her head resulting in a transition to a big girl bed. After one night and one nap of trying for an hour and a half to two hours to get her to sleep last night she went to bed with NO trouble at all!
  • Sophie got to go to Target to pick out her own big girl bedding. To my shock she actually chose the set I wanted her to get! A zebra print set that will match everything that is already in there!
  • Jack is not sleeping well at night, bummer! He is not loving sleeping in his crib these days! Thankfully, with #3 it is easier to see that "this too shall pass" and just enjoy the middle of the night snuggles while I can!
  • Mr. Max woke up last night with the tightest most horrible cough I have ever heard! I really thought we were going to have to go to the ER. Thankfully because of all his respiratory issues we have a nebulizer and the medicine always on hand so after his breathing treatment he was doing much better.
  • My mom came by after school yesterday and we just got to sit and chat! I love it when that happens! Most of the time when we are together she is giving the kids most of her attention (which I wouldn't have any other way!) but it is nice to get a little attention myself every once in awhile. I really have the best mom ever!
  • I realized that since it is NOVEMBER I should probably start Christmas shopping!
  • Nick has been awesome lately and my always helpful husband has stepped it up another notch helping me with the housework. I am so grateful for him! He teaches me so much about love and servanthood. He is such an awesome example of a husband and father for our kiddos. God is so good!
Happy Friday everyone! I am leaving you with a few "retro" (ha!!) pics. It is always fun to look back at what was going on this time last year so here it is in pics!

  1. :) super cute! where have I been? shoulda been reading your blog! oh and LOVE the cute pink frame around it! YES!!!!

  2. chloe and i are going to target to pick out big girl bedding today--she hasn't jumped out of her crib yet but she's straddling the rail and i think it's time. i hate that it's happening before the baby is born, but what can you do? these kids sure keep me on my toes!

    i hear ya on the middle of the night snuggles. i'm not dreading being up at night with ben like i did the other two. a little perspective is all it takes sometimes. :)

    have a great weekend and give that husband of your's a high five for being so awesome!
