"birth control"

photos of each baby..in birth order...Lillian, Liam & Lucy


its been one of those days as a parent that you say

' some day i'm gonna look back and laugh about this'

today Liam boy has been sick. . .a touch of 'ed' as we like to call it
e.d. = explosive diarrhea

he's cutting both sets of incisors has been running a low fever and is puky puky!!

poor guy has been so sleepy and clingy all day...lovey in hand following mommie around like a little duckling

birth control comes in lots of different forms...

tonight ours manifested in 3 screaming babies!!

i was doing my mommy-best and trying to get us all to the dinner table at the same time
it was good effort....and laughable

liam was down to his diaper because we'd already had a puking episode in the kitchen, lillian was at the dinner table in the middle of a drama fit because she didn't have
honey mustard 'dippies' for her chicken nuggets

and lucy was waking up from a nap, ready to eat!. .

forget the fact that andy and I's dinner was on the stove, mid-process,
and quickly thrown into a holding pattern!

andy and i exchanged a look. . we can survive this....right?!

i grabbed lucy...did the baby bounce while i cohearsed lillian to eat something..anything off her plate...i hear liam gagging in his highchair...andy's standing at the kitchen sink...and leans over, catching liam's puke in a tupperware container....way to go daddy!!!

45 minutes later....all babies bathed and in bed!

andy and I exchanged another look..and not the one you might think {wink}

it was part pure exhaustion, part elation..we did it...they are all in bed...!

whew what a night

so i leaned into hug him and started to laugh...

'um babe, you smell a little bit like puke'....

we love our babies...and all that comes with them
even on days like this we are so grateful for the craziness of our tinys!!
i couldn't imagine a sweeter time..well, a little less poo and puke would do!!
this too shall pass!
