1st day of School!

The summer flew by. School time again! Zach is starting at Rosedale Middle in 7th grade, Jake in 6th, Ben in 2nd, Nate is finally all day in 1st grade, and Big Al will be starting Pre-K after Labor Day.

Alex and Sophie were happy after everyone left. Big Daddy took everyone to school and walked the little guys to their classes. I went the Friday before to meet their teachers so I figured I was off the hook!

This is what they did most of the day. Lay in my bed and watch Preschool on TV. Man they're going to be smart!

Sophie is 5 months old today!

I can't believe it has been 5 months. Good thing this baby is cute, because she's not always easy. In fact she is very temperamental. She is starting to sit up pretty well, rolls all over and is scooting around. She loves to grab my hair on both sides and maul my face with slobbery, wet kisses. She loves watching her brothers play and loves hanging out with her dad. She squeals with delight so loud and is very ticklish. I love rocking her, dressing her, painting her toes, accessorizing her, and kissing her soft skin.
She loves to play with this little doll.
Her blue eyes are turning very dark, and I'm sure they'll be brown any day. Her hair is beginning to sprout all over, and I'm tempted to cut off the rest of the reddish mullet in the back. I get nothing accomplished these days. But man I love my new little buddy!
