Adjusting to 4 has been harder for me than adjusting to 3. I've heard people say that 3's the hardest. Well, not for me. I know it's only been 2 1/2 weeks, and maybe I should cut myself some slack. My kids are cute & have been very helpful, bringing me diapers & whatever I need. And Jeff has been so good to pick up a little extra slack around the house.
We decided to take pictures of the kids in their easter outfits. Makelle wasn't very cooperative when we wanted a picture of all the kids, so Jeff had to sit with them.
Kyler is still a sweet little boy, we're very blessed to have him in our family. He caught a cold from his big sister. Oh the joys of older kids. I have been a bit worried that it will turn into RSV because he's so little. Can I ask for prayers in his behalf? I need all the faith & prayers I can get. The more kids I have the more worries I get. Jeff gave him a blessing & I know he'll be ok, but that doesn't mean it'll be easy, I hope it is, but it's in the Lord's hands.
As you can see from the big middle picture, the kids LOVE him! It's as if he has always been part of our family.

It's all about Kyler

Kyler joined our family Thursday March 11th 2010 at 2:02 pm. He weighed in at 7 lbs. 5 oz. and is 20 1/2 in. long. He was alert for the first 5 or so hours & only cried once when he made his entrance. He still doesn't cry too much, but he definately speaks his mind when he's hungry {which seems to be more often than not} He's such a good baby & puts up with a lot from his siblings. The kids are adjusting well to him... Lexi always wants to hold him, Makelle likes to point & say "baby", but she doesn't really care much about him. Ethan is constantly washing his hands so he can touch him & kiss him.
We're so blessed to have Kyler join our family! I can't wait for the newborn stage to be over :)
