This baby is my world!!!

These two girls sure make my job easy.  they love taking care of baby Truman.  Vivian loves that he grabs her finter and Kam loves how tiny his body is.
 Pearcey has been a reading fool!  He reads almost all day long.  Wheather it's just sounding out huge words (the latest is Pandamonium), or reading books, or reading labels on food or boxes, he's ALWAYS reading.   He's gotten so good at it.
 And this girl...she loved that her dress flew behind her like a cape at the park.   I loved that her cute bum was showing when her cape blew up.  She's hilarious!



I cannot beleive how much I love this little man! I know I've loved a newborn this much 5 times before, but knowing this is the end (which makes me feel so old since I feel like we just started having kids) makes me cuddle him longer, smell him more, and kiss his entire face every hour!  he's so dang sweet! J and I really can't believe we're at the tail end of having kids.  It's so incredibly sad to me.  And I know I still have a few more child bearing years on me, but I'm so scared to death to have another pregnancy like the last, or post partum like the one before, or a ginomrous baby like Boss, and of course, to just have more teenagers. haha.  But I want more babies!!! 0-5 year olds are the best!   I guess by the time Tru is 5, Jaden or Kam would only have a couple of years before they might start their families.   But as much as people tell me having grandbabies is the best, there's NO way anything can be better than your own, great smelling, cuddly baby. It makes me want to spend every second with all 6 of these kids...which I know is impossible, especially since my older two are preferring friends to family now. ;(  Just happened in the last month.  But these other 4 love to be around here.  I want to be a more fun/happy mom for them.  I feel like I was doing pretty good for years, and the last 4 or 5 years have been a fog as a mom.  I think all of the "ideas of pinterest" have overwhelemed my mom brain and shut it off.  I hope i can get back to it!
Back to sweet, sweet baby Tru.  He had his first (and hopefully only) dr. appointment last week where he was weighing in at 8.8.  Almost back to birth weight, which I guess they should be at by week 2.  
He' s done so well at sleeping long stretches at night (hope I don't jinx that) and being happy during his awake time.  he's a gem!
 We took him to the park yesterday with Uncle Justin and Aunt Elissa.  He loved it.
 And of course, I had to take this picture with this cute pacifier....
 and then him 10 minutes later...

ugh i love your kids! I hope Liam is like Pearce and just wants to read all day, he loves books now but I'm praying the love stays. I didn't get to cuddle that babe enough when i was at the hospital, i really want to get up there and see you guys before i have the baby because knowing me, i'll not leave my home for months after he gets here, i'm such a whimp.
