Some Owen Progress

Owen has started sitting!! A little bit anyway. I definitely can't leave him unattended yet, but he's been doing a really good job. I'm super excited!! He'll be 5 months on Monday. I like it when they start getting older and eating real food and moving around on their own. He also had his first baby food today - bananas - and... the custard filling from a doughnut.

We'll be closing on our house in the morning which I'm also super excited. This is a great anniversary present! That's right, it will be 6 years on Saturday!!

My mom's birthday is on Sunday and kids 1-3 each made her a birthday card. Emma even wrote out "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" all by herself. She's getting so big! I didn't let my mom know they were coming so they were a nice surprise and the kids had a lot of fun making them.

Here's another pretty decent picture of all the kids together.

Evil Virus

This has been a normal scene at our house for the past couple of weeks.
Taking turns. All 6 of us.

Emma spent a week with Gramma and brought back this lovely virus to share with the rest of us. Feel the love? Now she is the only one that is completely over it and it doesn't seem like I will ever get better since I can't sleep because I have to take care of everyone else. Maybe I'm exaggerating a bit. I mean, I feel a little better, but come on! Mama needs rest too!

I got a pretty good shot of the boys together not looking sick, but one is looking rather chubby.

This little porkchop weighed 18 lbs when he went in for his 4 month check a couple weeks ago. He is definitely the biggest baby we've had. Emma started out bigger, but she was only 17 lbs when she was 4 months. Owen is so round and cute I just want to squish him all the time!

In other news, we're buying a house!!

This is it. Isn't it cute?! It does actually have more space that it looks like. Four bedrooms, finished basement, an actual dining room, and a nice playset in the back yard! I'm very excited! We will be closing in just a couple of weeks. That means I have lots of packing to do (and toys to get rid of!).
