It's Back

Our house is back to normal...loud and crazy normal that is. The older two boys have spent the last week alternating at their grandparents house and oh how glorious it was. Lucas got the first part of the week from when he got out of school last Thursday until Monday night when all stars started and then Jacob went from Monday until yesterday afternoon. It wasn't 10 minutes after Jacob was home but the chaos ensued. I figured out while he was gone that a large majority of the problems that we've been having around here stem from him. I've called him my Dennis the Menace for a while now but seriously each and everyday he grows more and more into that name. He lives to get into something that he's not supposed to. When he wasn't here Lucas was well behaved and calm,Caleb was calm and wasn't getting into trouble but when they were all three back together the volcano erupted again. In order to get everything calm to a certain degree I really think the answer lies in how we manage his behavior. At least it's clear and now we just have to figure out how to do it :)

Allie is still pretty fussy. She isn't running a fever anymore though so that's a good thing. She also has a tooth coming in at the same time as all of this other stuff so I'm sure that is just making things more difficult for her. She has wanted nothing more than for me to hold her for the last 5 days.....I've obliged :) I hear that once the rash starts that the worst part is over though so I'm looking for a non fussy day soon! On the other hand she's as cute as ever!!! Think she's comfortable? This is where she ends up every morning!

She is snug as a bug in a rug! I have tried putting Brody in our bed at night on several different occasions and he will not stay! He jumps up and wants to play and has actually fallen off the bed. He dosesn't know his limit of where to stop before the edge. Crazy boy! I would love to wake up with him beside us but he won't do it. B is fine with that but I think it would be precious from time to time.
I love Allie's pajamas! Those chunky little legs are precious.
Have a great day girlfriend!!

Don't tell me about boys feeding off each other!! I'm already seeing it with my boys & I'm scared of what's too come!

My boys end up in our bed too. I hope Allie feels better today. It's probably the more the tooth that's bugging her now. The 2nd day of the rash Tyler was back to his happy self.

LOL..oh my gosh, she's so cute! She looks so comfortable too!!!!!

OH..and I totally know what you mean about the chaos starting up again!

When my two older kids are gone to camp, it's sooooooooooooooooooooo quiet, and the three younger ones don't fight at all!!!!! Once they come home, the drama starts all over again! My sister asked me one time how it was going since they were gone at camp. I told her it was quiet. Then she goes, "Now you know who the trouble makers are!" LOL...that's when the light bulb went on!!

When I only have 2 of my three it is pretty mellow, but you throw the third one in the mix and it all goes south. :) They sure know how to make some noise.
Those sleeping pictures are so cute.

Yep, that's about the same with us. Jordyn always manages to find her way into mommy and daddy's bed by morning time. :) Hope to hear that Allie's doing better soon.
