Just wanted to give a quick picture update of the kids. They grow way to fast. I thought this first picture was so cute, even though Tanner was sooo sad. Sometimes their sad faces are just too precious.Tanner has learned to roll over from back to front. It has made for a few long nights because he will wake up and turn over. The only thing is that he can't roll back and so he just cries until we come and roll him back to his back and give him his binkie.
The girls continue to love "hanging out" with Tanner. With him rolling over now the girls go over and lay on the ground with him and entertain him. Most of the time they call to me to come help them because Tanner has grabbed their hair.
I really need to get a good picture of the kids all together, but we struggle with the setup and with getting everyone to look at the camera with smiles on their faces. This will have to do.
And to finish, our sweet Tanner boy. The evenings have been really cold so he has been sleeping with a beanie on. My favorite part of the day: seeing their sweet content faces as they sleep. . .

Cute kids! Tanner's getting big. Its fun to see him developing and learning new tricks. I'm glad that they all love to play together and that Tanner has so many little people to entertain him. I wonder if Emma ever got bored being the first? Luckily we lived with Jenny the first 8 months of Emma's life so she had plenty of cousins to play with. I'm so grateful for children and how they bless and enrich our lives. I can't imagine my life without them, chaos and all.

Sleeping babies are so precious...now if they could just stay that way for a little longer....

It still amazes me that you have four kids! I just can't believe that they are all yours. I still look at Micah sometimes and can't believe he is mine! I think there are times when it feels like a long babysitting session. They are cuties!

Aw, such sweet sweet babies you have:) That last picture of Tanner with that silky little blanket of him sleeping just makes me hunger for a good baby-cuddle.

Aw, so precious! You can definitely tell the kids are related. I love how the girls look after Tanner.
Oh and Tanner's crib sheet is really cute.

They're all so cute! Aaron just started to roll over a few days ago. I guess I haven't been giving him enough time on the floor. He's just better protected from the others in the Walker or Johnny Jump Up. Tanner looks like he weighs more than Aaron too! I'll probably never get a chubby baby! :( Oh well! They are fun aren't they?

Not that Tanner's chubby! He's just the right size!!1

Rachel! Yeah, my blog is pretty sad right now, I know. I actually just got on to look at it, and saw your post! I don't check it very often these days. I guess I don't really know what to post on it yet...when we have our baby, I'll feel much more excited to put up pics. Right now, I guess I could put up pics of Joey and I...I should, but I'm slowly...very slowly learning all about this blog life.

We do know what we're having...a BOY! Joey is so, so, so excited. He almost fell out of the chair when the nurse told us during the ultrasound! He pretended he didn't care if it was a boy or a girl, but when it came down to it, he did :)

I'm getting pretty excited now...about two more months. I can hardly believe it. I'm thinking of having the baby without any drugs. What do you think?
