Its been a while....

Wow! So, lots of life has happened since we last visited, but like a long lost friend, I'm hoping we can pick up where we left off! 

There are not too many things I can say I'm really good at, and being easily distracted is one of them! And, you know, life with four kids (even though two are pretty much self sufficient) is pretty distracting. Between school, ball games, housework, and the necessary evil that is 'cooking dinner,' I've left you hanging. So I'll try to do a quick recap in pictures, because lets face it... seeing my cute kids is all we really care about these days! 

This little nugget had her first beach trip and LOVED it!

She also attended her first TROY football game...

We read lots of stories.

G got her license and some wheels...

Smalls made big life decisions...

We trick-or-treated...

Husband made this little girl's stained glass angel...

We took our traditional 'Smalls is being grumpy' Thanksgiving picture...

Porcupine had her 6 month photo shoot...

Smalls made her church Christmas play debut as the angel that took off her wings and halo onstage and rolled around on the floor.

We baked Christmas cookies...

and had a special 1st Christmas with our new, little chunk.

Husband hosted his annual Valentine's Dinner Date...

Smalls turned 4!!! 

And this little caboose just keeps getting cuter and cuter! 

Ok...That's all I've got...
Nap time is over and duty calls!

Three months in the books

I know it is super cliche, but I can't believe how fast time is flying by! This time last year we didn't even know about our sixth family member, and now Six is here and almost four months old! 

What about that hair do!!! 

...and those lips! 

And as any good Southern baby should boast, her first real outing was to church when she was just two weeks old.

Six was able to wear my little dress that Mom dressed me in for my first trip to church when I was two weeks old. 
*insert 'awwwwe' here*

The gross, little belly-button-thing fell off after about a week, and unlike Smalls, this little girl LOVES a good bath! Which is nice, because we gotta do something to help tame all that hair! 

Smalls loves being a big sister now and enjoys being a helper. 
It is also crazy to me how, literally overnight, Smalls looks so much bigger!! 

I'm not sure if she's super protective of her baby or if she's just not ready to give up her old room quite yet, but Smalls likes to nap in the tent in the nursery. (Hey, a nap is a nap and I'll take it any way I can get it!!) 

And what good is a new baby sister if you can't pretend she's your new doll and dress her up all the time!?!?!

Even Louie seems to be smitten by his new human.

There ya have it... We're just loving life and gradually adjusting to this sweet little chunk!  

There ya have it! Nothing too exciting... I mean, she couldn't really do much the first couple of months, which is probably a good thing, because I was too tired to even blink.  

Now, things are much fun. She actually recognizes us, smiles all the time, laughs out loud, rolls over, and more importantly doesn't eat every two hours and sleeps through the night!!
*insert hallelujah here*

This little girl is so blessed to be surrounded by such a large family and group of friends that are dedicated to helping her to grow up hearing about God and teaching her to trust in Him. 

 We were able to plan her christening ceremony around Grandpa's art show schedule,
 (Just as any good Adams' event should be!!)

This is the church that Husband grew up in, so it is extra special to be able to raise our girls in this same church family. Also, Six was able to wear the same dress that Smalls wore for her christening. 

Smalls was just a little bit concerned about why Rev Ed was putting water on her baby's head. 

Just a few family pictures from the day...

Sweet baby girl did so well for the entire ceremony and church, but let us know what she thought about all the pictures! :)
