A Girl!

Well not mine...but my across the street neighbor had one.

After two boys and then a whoops moments... 9 months later she has a sweet baby girl to hold.

Today I got to take care of her two sweet boys whom my boys LOVE while baby E was being delivered. They entertained each other and it was actually an easier day for me.

Who knew that 4 boys would be easier then 2 boys?!


My boys taught N the importance of digging in the dirt.



Our boys are very close in age.

I still took Wild Man to school today...because he asked to go. I walked into the school with Romeo (almost 2 and a half), E who is 22 months but the exact same size as Romeo, Wild Man (4 yrs) and N (almost 4). Mind you they are all blond headed and do look a lot alike.


In that short walk to Wild Man's class I got no less then 3 comments of "Are they ALL yours?", not counting all the stares.

Now I know how to make a scene without even opening my mouth.

Baby Girl E and mom are doing great and I can't wait to hold her and smell that new baby smell!

Cute pics, Katie. The blondness reminds me of a boy I knew when I was little. Everyone called him a 'tow head.' Because this particular kid had a very pointed head (no lie), it wasn't until I was in my twenties that I learned that tow head meant very blond. I always thought it meant someone with a pointy head. :-D

I have a blogger friend who just had her seventh baby and she is sometimes asked if it's her first. Imagine the looks she gets when she says it's number seven!
