Its been a long time!

I was looking at old posts today and realized that I haven't updated since Josephine was born! Life with 4 seems to just float away.  Being present for the kids at home means that I spend less time here.

What can I say, the kids are all bigger and crazier and more loving and more everything.

Orson is half way through 1st grade at Douglas and loves it.  He is starting to really get letter sounds and reading, he is great at math and wants to be an engineer, he loves everything outside and fast, art, music/rhythm and is figuring out swimming.

Ferdinand started preschool at St Louis this year.  He comes home with something new every time he goes, letters, numbers, potty language, friends, art, you name it! He is such his own little person now. Full of wonder, delight, emotions and attitude.  He has learned how to ride his bike, hiked over 5 miles on his own two feet and loves music.

Theodore is getting so big, he has had his first hair cut, is jealous of Josephine, loves to cuddle, copies his brothers, using complete sentences and sometimes paragraphs to tell us stories, still screams like a daemon but is so very, very loving. He is figuring out his tricycle, loves to go on hikes as long as he doesn't have to walk, swimming and starting to get into coloring.

Josephine has grown like a weed.  She has brought so much joy into the house.  The boys all love her and Matt is smitten.  She is crawling and cruising, eating solids, has 6 teeth and more on the way, been in the water and loves it, goes for hikes with the family, played in the snow, been on an airplane and brings smiles to everyone she meets.  She is super chill and loves to just watch.

And some family shots from this year

I'll be back just after Christmas with an update, I promise!  Should have lots to talk about by then ;)
