Flashback Friday!!! (6.20.14)

It's been an extremely busy week for me. But it's summer, so there are no complaints from me! Wink

My girl and my sweet little cousin:

Pool fun!

And my sweet babies!

Aw, looks like you guys are having an awesome start to your summer, Sadie!

We're having a so-so week here. Weather's not great, and now Nora's sick. But on one cloudy morning, we got out to the library:

and the kids climbed some trees there:

Also got out in the back yard:

And then just some indoor silliness:

And from today:

Stopping by real quick to share some. I'm struggling to make enough time for myself, which is a problem, because I need that time to recharge to be a good mom. Hudson is also a bear. He's definitely my most grumpy baby, and I find myself wishing him older Sad

Sorry to be a downer…

Anyway, these images cheer me up a bit.

Top tooth gone



A bit oof, but I love it

Always hungry.

Passed out

Grandma and grandpa came to visit this week

Steph, it sounds like a hard phase right now. I hope it gets better soon. I know Nora was a hard baby, and Micah was such a breeze comparatively. When Micah was a baby, I remember thinking I was glad it wasn't the other way around, because when you already have one or two kids, having a more 'demanding' baby must be tough. Sad

I love the missing tooth shot! Smile And the one of Jackson playing trains, such a great moment!

Hi Sadie ... I'm glad to hear you are enjoying your summer. From the pics it looks like you are having a BLAST!

Hi Tracy ... I sure hope by now that Nora is feeling much better! Looks like you guys had a lot of fun at the library.

Hi Steph ... sorry that your youngest is running your battery down. Logan was ... what's the PC way to say it ... a "high maintenance" infant. So I understand, on some level, what you are going through. I didn't have 2 older boys to add to the challenge though. I hope you CAN find some time for yourself. You deserve it and you are right, it will make you all that much better as a mom. Hang in there though - for this season too shall pass. I really love Carson's toothless smile! There is just something about the gap that is created when those front teeth fall out. It makes them look older but oh so adorable!

I have been SO busy lately. Summer is always like this for me, but this year seems worse. They probably always seem that way, but I am struggling. I have some new responsibilities and I'm afraid my family is taking the brunt of my stress. Mostly, I'm gone a lot. Summer is supposed to be a time to relax, but it seems the opposite is true for me and then I get grumpy that I am not able to enjoy this time with Logan. *sigh*

Sorry to ramble. I'm thankful for my job and my family is wonderfully supportive.

Anyway ... the point of all of that is, I don't have many pics to share. Here's what I do have:

anyone want to guess the theme of Carlos' fathers day gifts for this year. Wink

found this guy chilling out in the dogs' water bowl:

my crazy mutt:

and here is one from a couple session I did last Thursday (I will start another thread for CC later when I come up for air):

Take care everyone!
