We spent 8 STRAIGHT HOURS outside Saturday, 6 straights hours yesterday and 6 today! I can barely get my kids inside to go to the bathroom. They are just breathing in the fresh air and loving every minute of it.
My twins were passed out by 7:45 the
last three nights and all five were sleeping by 8pm. Exhausted children
are a wonderful thing!
I don't think there was any
outdoor toy that we didn't play with. What a blast. Quinton has been
asking for over a month now to play in the pool. They have been playing
in it without water all week so I finally caved and filled it up for
them yesterday. If you want to see my children excited all you have to
do it throw them in water and after a long winter of not swimming. They
I unintentionally made it like bath water. It worked to my advantage though and made for an extra long play time in the pool.

His personality seriously cannot be more wonderful. He is the most pleasant little man. He is amazing at making eye contact with whoever is talking with him. People have told me that for quite a while but he just loves watching whoever is around him. Jett has begun to roll both directions. He doesn't do it often but can and of course we all cheer for him when he does!
Jett joined Dan and I on a afternoon/evening date the other day and smiled the entire time. He seemed so pleased to have constant eyes on him!
He continues to amaze me with his go with the flow personality. He is already sleeping well on the go, does well inside, outside, at the park. He delights in the chaos all around him and everyone delights in him.
He is sleeping a glorious 8 hour stretch usually followed by another 2-3 hours. And when he does wake up to eat I am greeted with a sweet smile.Time is flying and as we enter into warmer weather it only seems to go faster. The other day my children and I were talking about all the different things we have to look forward to over the next few months and all the sudden we were talking about the 4th of July and fireworks. I had to stop them for fear that if we kept talking that time would go faster.

My kids love to do crafts.
However, these days, Titan makes crafting a little more complicated. If Titan is awake then the craft must be "Titan Friendly!"
We are desperately waiting to go outside and enjoy spring but while we wait for the rain to stop and the warm weather to come we are crafting.
On this particular day I decided to give Ty some paint and a brush and be committed to a bath afterward!
As you can see, Titan is not one of those children that doesn't like to be messy. This boy thrives while making a mess!

Just saying their names brings huge smiles to my children's faces. So you can imagine the excitement when they come to visit. They are up at the crack of dawn every day that they are here just ready to snuggle, play and have a blast. They cannot get enough of them.
Titan is convinced that he is can do anything that his older siblings can do. Who needs a baby swing when he can already ride on the big kid swing!
And the big kids still like a swing in the baby swing. Funny how things work!
This is Rex' look when he is trying not to smile at you!
Getting 4 or 5 little children to smile all at the same time and to capture it is quite difficult.
