Oh Danny Boy.....

I am deep in the potty training trenches with Daniel.
He has always been a... different sort.
He is not compliant or easy going.
Sweet and loving yes... but with a mind of his own.
For example about three hours after his birth he was going on about... oh... three hours of crying.
Yeah. Never have I felt like I needed a break from my three hour old baby before.
But I was tired and he was LOUD, this should have been my first clue.

Anyway its been rough, slow but good progress... but I am to exhausted to blog about it.
  Instead I would now like to harken back to a simpler time a week ago when Daniel wore pants at all times and didn't have a "squirt gun" at his constant disposal. 

These are not even sort of in chronological order....

Vivian has tried cereal and is not impressed.
However she doesn't like being left alone while we eat so we have started bringing her to sit with us at the table. This was our first dinner together as a family of six.


If I'd have known I would have done better than pizza on paper plates and leftover nachos.
But then again why put on a show? Let's keep it real, wouldn't want them to get used to the real silverware... or eating vegetables....

I am so very in love with this baby. The fact that she is the only one left who has not peed on every floor of my house probably helps her to seem more adorable.


If you thought that was crowded check out our play date/ lunch date....

Two Uncles and six cousins.... and two more cousins not at the table yet... they were swinging and bouncing and watching praise baby in the living room. Someday soon we won't all fit!

This is an awful picture of me but I found it hilarious because I didn't see Isaac behind me until I looked at it on the computer.

My boys are a little obsessed with "wooking".
I hope this lasts into a time when they are able to push a lawn mower.


His goggles are just a tad tight I think...


And this is what happens when you have girls directing the boys.....




Super baby...




Isabella has taken to dressing herself lately... She loves purple... can you tell?




Bella has about a million princess dresses... Tommy has a Buzz jumpsuit.


Bella thought she would see what all the fuss was about.


She liked it for about five minutes, then she went back to her sparkle and tulle.
Glad she can try new things though.


Random pool time...


Tommy trying to get AJ to blow bubbles with the pool water.
We are out of bubble stuff apparently.

Bella reading my weight watchers magazine.


 And a random picture of AJ looking summery....


So there you have it... a whole lot of nothing really. 
My brain is fried and it is all I can do not to consume all the M&M's I have bought for Daniel's reward's..... I will have another fudge bar however....

This too shall pass, I will blog better tomorrow, my house will smell better someday, 
when they are all grown I will rent a carpet scrubber.... or move.
