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:



Ava is ready for more!

Millie and Luke hold hands during lunch time

Millie REALLY enjoyed her Gerber sweet potatoes!

Izzy says carrots taste better when you wear them!
We love our group meal times--thank you, Gerber!!

  1. I'm from USA i want to use this opportunity to thank my great doctor who really made my life a pleasurable one today. This great Doctor brought my husband back to me, i had 3 lovely kids for my husband, about 3 years ago i and my husband has been into one quarrel or the other until he finally left me for one lady. i felt my life was over and my kids thought then will never see their father again. i tried to be strong just for the kids but i couldn’t control the pains that torments my heart, my heart was filled with sorrows and pains because i was really in love with my husband. Every day and night i think of him and i always wish he will come back to me, until one day i met a good friend of mine that was also in a situation like me but her problem was her ex-boyfriend who she had an unwanted pregnancy for and he refused to take responsibility and dumped her. she told me that mine was a small case and that i shouldn’t worry about it at all so i asked her what was the solution to my problems and she gave me this great man phone number and his email address. i was doubting if this man was the solution, so i contacted this great man and he told me what to do and i deed them all, he told me to wait for just seven days and that my husband will come crawling on his kneels just for forgiveness so i faithfully deed what this great man asked me to do and for sure after four days i heard a knock on the door, in a great surprise i saw him on his kneels and i was speechless, when he saw me, all he did was crying and asking me for forgiveness, from that day, all the pains and sorrows in my heart flew away,since then i and my husband and our lovely kids are happy.that is why i want to say a big thanks to Dr iayaryi. This great man made me to understand that there is know problem on earth that has no solution so please if you know that you have this same problem or any problem that is similar, i will advise you to come straight to this great man. you can email him at (driayaryi2012@hotmail.com) And also Reach him on WhatsApp Number: +2349057915709 Thanks Dr. Iyaryi
