A Day in the Life...

My life is not exactly glamorous.  It mostly consists of laundry, dishes, and diapers.  Oh, so many diapers.  It also consists of a pretty amazing husband and three sweet little kids.  All 3 or under.  At least for a month or so.  So if I act a little crazy, blame the tiny ones.  Just kidding.  Kind of.
So, a glimpse into my life.
Taking Pictures:
I look like I have completely lost my mind.  Oh well. :)  Andrew has started asking us to take silly pictures of him, or of him and us.  This was the result of ours.

All of the Mike/Andrew ones turned out super cute, but this one is my favorite.  Andrew came in once when I was doing the dishes and watching Dancing With the Stars (don't judge).  He LOVED it.  He always asks to watch "the dancing show" and so I sometimes will find a fun dance or something online and we'll watch it together.  He always acts it out, and I think this was one of those times.  Look at that hand.  CRACKS me up.
Getting a haircut:
I finally got around to cutting Emmie some bangs.  It was beyond the ridiculous point and I just couldn't keep a barrette in her hair to keep it out of her eyes.  I thought it actually turned out pretty good, especially considering my guinea pig is also super squirmy and was brushing her teeth at the time. 
Mike also gave Andrew a haircut and did a good job as well.

Holding Charlie:
As much as the kids adore Charlie, they really haven't been interested in holding him at all, until recently when Andrew has wanted to.  This is a bit of a problem because he often asks AS he is picking him up (yikes) but I think it's sweet.  And speaking of sweet, check out the little sneakers Charlie boy is wearing.  Pretty adorable.

Sometimes seeing each other:
This picture was taken after church and home teaching was over, in Emily's room, blocking the door so Andrew wouldn't come in again.  It's really hard to get pictures together, fyi.  Sometimes I feel like I don't see Mike as often as I'd like, but I sure do love the times when I do!

Being Sick:
Poor little Emmie was so sick for a few days.  She was stumbling around the house, with her hoarse little voice asking us to hold her and just generally being super pathetic and sad.  Let's just suffice it to say, we are so grateful our baby girl is feeling better.

Taking More Pictures:Andrew LOVES taking pictures.  Here's one of his favorites.  A few of his other favorite things to take pictures of?  Floors, Charlie's carseat, his knee, and pictures that make me look like I have 10 chins.  :)

Andy and Emmie are both obsessed with Charlie and his tiny little features.  Andrew loves to tickle him and I heard him say to Charlie when he woke up crying, "I know.  It's hard to wake up sometimes, huh?"

Sometimes I feel like he's just along for the ride.  :)  He is just so cute.

1-- I agree with Kirsten big time on which is the better dancing show!
2-- Funny enough, I often want to cry when I wake up in the mornings, too. Sometimes it is hard to wake up. Way to be observant, Andrew!
3-- Love Emily's hair. And yours, too, Karen.
