So People, I Apparently Need A Bit More Sleep

More sleep? Doesn't any mother or father of a new baby need more sleep? Sure, but I am going to blame my lack of blogging on it, rather than the real reason (Pinterest!).

Well over a month ago I made a huge list of future blogs to write with the accompanying picture information. I promptly lost this list, only to find it today snug in the notebook that I bought to keep me organized. Ha. So I plug in the pictures only to find that about half of them are nonsense. Horrible pictures of people blinking, blurry streaks that were supposed to be Eleanor and two where my chin looks far beyond "a double". There was no way that these were the ones I had meant to blog about. I must have been half asleep when I thought I was being all super organized. Which means, oh crap. I need to start from scratch, and I have no idea where to start.

So. Here are a few-day to-day shots to tie you over til I get my brain back.

Little man.
Eleanor and our sweet neighbor Grant. They have the best time giggling around the house together. They seem to find anything they do to be HI-LAR-IOUS.
I will admit though, the sound of them laughing their fool heads off will brighten your day.
Anther shot from when my parents were here. (Man! That was a freaking lifetime ago!) Eleanor loves to get "all tozy" in her blankets.
Clayton took Eleanor to the children's museum in Grand Rapids a few weeks back. Eleanor love, love, loved the bubbles. Of course.
We have a few awesome dirt piles in our front area. I think the landlord was going to replant a bunch of flowers, then decided against it, leaving three large piles of fresh dirt in our raised planter area. They kids adore it, and E is always right there in it. I don't mind until they start throwing or dumping it on each other. It never washes all the way out! Here is our little Miss Mudpie in the bath. You can't really tell how dirty she is, but trust me that there wasn't one inch of skin that wasn't coated. I had to wash out the bath tub three times.
Thanks to Dora, Eleanor has a love of back packs. Here she is wearing one.
Which is actually a tiny little baby-doll purse. How she gets them on is beyond me.
Here is an old shot, this is little Leah with Eleanor. Leah moved to Washington well over a month and we miss her family a ton! Eleanor talks about her and her older brother at the most random times. It's cute that she remembers her friends. Little kiss.
"Aaaaaahhh, we touch our noses! We so silly, mommy."Ok, so the kids are cute, but I'll admit, this was a pretty boring post. I need to upload a ton of more pictures and videos. And I need to get a bunch from Jenni. Her visit has come and gone and we are missing her like crazy. I took all of one picture while she was here.
But hey, she is the professional.

Here are a few videos to make this post a bit more fun.

"Tiny Turtle" and a bit of Winston

Hula Fever with Grant

And a thank you to Grandma Judy.

Awwwwww.... while we were watching the videos Miles said, "Hey! That looks like Michigan!" and Wesley was grinning and waving his hand and saying, "Hi!"

There has not been a more exhausting time in my life than when my 3 were babies. Ugh. That is a "tired" that can't be explained. Then you see how wonderful and sweet and perfect those little ones are and it's all worth it!!! Hang in there. You will get your brain back. :) Thanks for your sweet comment on our anniversary post. You crack me up! "hot-ness"??!! I wish that could describe me!! (Bless you. You made my day!)
