Scrumptious Solids

Long time no blog!

I apologize it's taken me so long to update you.  As you can imagine, life flies by these days.  Well, time flies, but the days are long.  SOOOOOO long.  I've started wearing a pedometer and I'm averaging 9 miles a day--and that's just taking care of babies!  I can't imagine what my total will be when I actually have time to work out.  When I do find some spare time,  I'm usually cleaning the house, making dinner, loving on our dog Ellie, or catching up with one of my wonderful friends.

Overall, though, things have been going well in our little corner of the world.  Four of the kiddos have teeth!  Millie is leading the way with five (almost six) teeth.  We used to joke that she would steal the other kids' teeth during the night.  But then, Luke got two teeth, soon followed by Isabelle and Clara.  Only the little peanut, Ava Louise, is still without a pearly white.

As most parents will tell you, with teething comes interrupted sleep.  Cue the music of doom (DUN DUN DUNNNNNNNN).  The kids had (past tense) thankfully started sleeping through the night, but with the appearance of teeth came the night wakings.  It wouldn't be bad if just one child had this, but pretty much every child has this off and on, and it changes with the child (and frequency) each night.  To say Michael and I are exhausted is the understatement of the century.  We need a new word for exhausted.

In other news, solid food is such a treat for these little ones!  Gerber has generously supplied us with delicious food to nurture our growing gaggle.  We absolutely LOVE their products, especially the fruit and veggie mixes.  We even eat their foods for breakfast.  Luke will gobble up any Gerber food that comes mixed with their cereals.  That's his favorite way to start the day!

Here are some food photos of our kiddos chowing down on their favorite Gerber yummies:
