Fly on our wall…

SOOO…here is a little sneak peak into life here the last few days…

FRANK is going through a SERIOUSLY quirky phase of soccer shirts. He is wearing them EVERY day…some times 5 at a time–and all way too big for him because they belong to Parker. On Wednesday, Frank insisted (I’m talking about FIT insisted!) on wearing a soccer jersey that Rico Suave purchased for Parker in Zambia. Seriously–his preschool teachers lost it when they saw him…they LOVE some Frank…I mean–how can you not with this personality??? He seriously went to preschool on Wednesday like this…

This guy RADIATES joy…and he just started saying the sweetest blessing…that he whispers very quickly so we can’t hear…LOVE him!

I think it’s funny how ALL my children have done THIS while they eat…EVEN ISAAC!!!

If you have read my blog for awhile then you know I used to always post Frank’s sweet feet like this in the high chair too…one of my favorite things he used to do too!!!

One thing I just LOVE is having my babes close to together…granted the 2nd set is just 9 months…the first set is pretty close too at 14 months. BUT this is one reason I love…

SERIOUSLY–they are two peas in a pod. IF anything…they get too crazy some times…but I just love their closeness and that they always have a playdate partner!

And THIS is why we needed a baby #4…they try to love on Frank in the same way they love on each other–but it’s just not the same!

SERIOUSLY—P and L are always playing hide-and-go seek…and might I add in the strangest places…

They ask Frank to find them…and he obliges…He sure is sweet to go along with their craziness…

BUT SERIOUSLY…he needed his sidekick!!!

SERIOUSLY…so happy Frank and Isaac are so close together in age TOO!!!

And I wanted to let you all in–just for kicks–on a serious weakness of mine!!! LAUNDRY! Ok…sorry Rich—but I just had to share this as it made my SIDE HURT laughing so hard this morning. Rich put on one of his favorite shirts this morning to discover momma shrunk it!!!!!!!!!! Don’t worry…he did NOT wear this to work! Maybe Frank will like it though and he can wear it to preschool:)

Hope you all have a great weekend!!!!

That last pic and your comment about it cracked me up. Love seeing the pictures of your kids– clear to me how much they love one another. My girls are 15 months apart in age, and I LOVE it. It is hard sometimes, but I wouldn’t trade it.

Okay, laughing out loud at the shirt! That is why my husband doesn’t even want me to do his laundry! 🙂 He does his own cuz I don’t do all the “right steps” and fold it correctily (is it pockets out or in…hmm…can’t remember…ha). Cracks me up! Blessings, Jenny

I am hysterically laughing at the last pic! I never mastered laundry either. I just picked back up on your blog recently and I am so thrilled for you that you have baby I home and that your family has so beautifully welcomed him into your lives. What a true blessing! xo

oh your description of why you needed a #4 is so tugging at my heart… but on a lighter note, love that your hubby is such a good sport letting you take a pic of him for th eblog! HA! 🙂 And Frank going to preschool like that. So cute!

Oh my dear! Whooo hoooo! That’s awesome! What a trooper. Great post!

He he he he- love the pics 🙂

Don’t worry laundry is not my strong point either…in fact Jason does it otherwise- not sure what we would wear around here 🙂

Chrystal - January 22, 2011 - 10:58 pm

Oh my, how precious 🙂 my last 3 girls (we have 5) are each 11mo. a part, love-love-love having them close in age!!!… and tell the hubby that he rocks that shirt. (hahahahah).. 🙂

Haha! Frank is precious! And it could be worse than soccer shirts, my brother had a friend that wore his batman costume for a solid year when they were 4, to school, birthday parties, everywhere.

Kelly - January 23, 2011 - 2:25 pm

Your pictures are precious as always. Got my t-shirt in the mail yesterday! whoo-hoo! 🙂

Oh that is SO funny Andrea! Our Piper needs a number 4, too and we CANNOT wait for her to have her sister:)
LOVE Rico Suave’s shirt:)
