When your oldest baby is now old enough to carry around your youngest baby. 😭😍 She actually rocked him to sleep while I finished making lunch. I'm just going to be over here crying into my coffee now. 😭😭😭😭😭😭

We officially have a two year old! Astrid's been the most independent of all of the kids, always wanting to be like the big kids and do what they're doing, but she's also the most cuddly. She loves pancakes, babies, Anna and Elsa and all the Frozen songs, doing everything just like her big siblings, holding and giving baby brother kisses, hugs, snacks, singing, and going outside. We're so thankful for this little girl! 💜 #astridevangeline

They happened to be wearing coordinating little/big brother shirts so of course we had to document it. Now we just need a "middle brother" shirt for Oscar. 😄

Feeling a little off today most likely because I didn't get much sleep last night or nearly enough coffee today. Also, I've mostly eaten puppy chow as my main sustenance for the day. 😬 But this sunshine, warm weather, and the fact that the kids have been able to play outside on their scooters for a while is helping change my mood and counteract the burning sensation in my eyes just a bit. 😴😜 #honestmotherhood #lookatthatbabythough #momof5

First bath tonight went well, which has never been the case for any of our babies. The rest of our kids basically hated the bath until they could sit up in the tub themselves. Fenton loved every minute of it and only cried when we took him out. 💦🛀🏻🐟 #fentonleo

Finished the chairs last night with this new paint called fusion mineral paint. I did a decent amount of research on paint because I knew with seven people using and abusing these on the regular it needed to hold up well and be easy to clean. They don't sell it at hardware stores so I had to hunt it down at a little shop in Stillwater that happened to sell it. I didn't have to sand the chairs first (although I did scuff them up just a bit) and it went on really nice so now we'll see how it holds up!
