5 months & 10 months


Baby E is 5 months old today!




Baby D is 10 months old today!


We are so excited to be celebrating another month of the "twins" babyhood. I told their Daddy that Baby E is now as old as Baby D was when Baby E was born. He smiled and said, "Is it time for another baby?" Very funny Mister. Very funny.


These quilts are a precious gift from their Great Nana. The boys' room has a KSU theme and these quilts are perfect. Plus their Mommy and Daddy met at KSU and the rest is history!

4 months & 9 months

Baby D is 9 months and Baby E is 4 months.

Their adoring fans wanted to get in on this photo shoot.








Daddy and Papa were here too!

(No babies were harmed in the making of this post.  Daddy was there to keep the babies safe while I took pics!)

Letters for Zambia!

Papa and Grandma (EJ's folks) have been to Zambia several times to serve at an amazing ministry called Villages of Hope.

Last year, when they returned they had letters from some of the children written to our children.

We got the opportunity to write letters back to those students and send them with Papa and Grandma this year.

I took these photos of the kiddos so their "pen pals" would know who they were writing to.

One of my children was planning to write..."We want to come visit you in Zambia but we have too many babies.  We have to wait until they get older."  He changed his mind at the last minute and decided not to include that tidbit.  Ha ha!  I love it!

Another month of cloth diapering 3 little ones


As you can see it takes a lot of diapers to cover all these baby buns. I think there were around 48 diapers on the line in this picture. That is two days worth for Miss Ruthie, Baby D and Baby E. I am enjoying having the summer sunshine so I can dry the diapers on the line.

I did an update last month and shared which diapers I was using. Then I got fed up with some of them and switched to others. I feel like when I am cloth diapering there is a lot of trial and error. What works for one child does not work for another. Their body types determine how good the diaper style fits.  

We are cloth diapering day and night for all of them now. I do use disposables from time to time if we are out and about. If we get out of routine and use disposables for a few days over the weekend I am amazed at how many packages of diapers we fly through.

The biggest bro



It is a lot of responsibility to be looked up to by 5 younger siblings.  

Our B man does it with ease.

We are so thankful for him.

Each milestone is a reason to celebrate...

Baby E loves to look at his toys and even grabs them to play!

Baby D is so happy to be eating food with the family!

Baby E meets Great Papa and Nana



The whole family headed to Papa and Nana's house for the weekend.

It was time for baby E to meet his great grandparents.

It is amazing to watch my grandparents love on my babies.

I have so many precious memories of time with them when I was a child.

I adore watching my children make memories of their own.
