Charlotte's chunking up! She's 9 lbs 15 oz at three weeks old. She's gained two pounds since birth. Such a sign of success in the breast feeding department. :) The turtleneck I attempted to put on her this morning was tighter than any turtleneck ought to be though - so much for that shirt. It was looking more like a noose than a shirt. Those neck rolls just want to get in the way!
The kids saw the dentist yesterday. The dentist - a good friend from church - made them each latex-glove balloons. While we waited to Blaine to be finished with his appointment, Sterling drove his truck over a "balloon" and popped it. I said, "That's sad.". He replied, "No it's not. It's not mine. It's Ruby's!" Ah, yes, such empathy. It was a little bit sad for him when I informed it was now his, because he would be trading with Ruby. Then he realized he could use the glove as a glove once more, and he became a dentist for Eden. Such a fun life we have.

With occasional posts, Alexandra, Adrienne's older sister, writes of her ranch life in Nevada and raising four sons, ages 5 and under. Life is never dull and her boys have given her some pretty awesome stories to tell.
Stick around awhile, and you're sure to laugh, nod, smile, be encouraged, and see what life is like with a big (little) family.
