My Week in Phone Photos

So it seems that I take tons of pictures with my phone and not so much my camera as of lately. But I thought that you would like to see what pictures were taken with my phone this week.

William eating a blue cupcake (he only ate the icing and I'm not sure how much actually got in his mouth!)

I gave Charlotte her first pedicure!

William played Backyardigan's pirates A LOT!!

We took the kids to the church picnic and Caroline and Josh rode this ride (watching it made me want to vomit).

Caroline put one of her doll's headbands on Charlotte and it fit perfectly!

My boys caught a cat-nap.

And finally Charlotte turned 2 weeks old!!

Things I have learned...

during my first week as a Momma of 3.

  • my kids are a true blessing.

  • sometimes when you wake up thinking it is going to be a typical Thursday, it can turn into a wonderful birthday.

  • Caroline is an awesome big sister and is a great helper.

  • William is interested in his little sister and likes to give her kisses.

  • a baby's head is the sweetest smelling thing in the world.

  • babies poop a lot. a lot.

  • trying to get 3 kids and myself ready to leave the house is like hearding cats...nearly impossible.

  • my husband is the best husband and father in the world, hands down.

  • William has taken a liking to climbing again, just like I showed you in this post about His Stunt Double.

  • it is refreshing to feed your baby without stressing over mLs and calories. Charlotte is eating like a champ and gained 7 ounces in a week!

  • William doesn't understand "gentle" as well as one would like. ;)

  • Caroline doesn't want to learn to change diapers...I think I need to work on that one!

  • it is amazing what you can do using only one arm or one hand.

  • it was a strange but wonderful feeling to go to the doctor and her tell you that everything looks great and the baby doesn't need to be seen again until her one month well baby visit.

And finally...

  • I have learned that being sleep deprived, pooped on, peed on, spit up on is okay because these little jewels call me Momma...
