Giovanni picked up on dad making faces at him and this has now become his "mean face"...too cute not to share!
Jacob and I are truly blessed with amazingly supportive families. His parents are willing to come help us out at any notice and even though my family is far away they sacrifice their time together so my mom can help us out every week watching the babies. having the babies has made our families stronger and larger- and not just 5 babies larger but larger in the sense that our closest friends have become like family to us-we rely on them, depend on them, and know we can count on them anytime we need them. When I saw this quote on Pinterest I instantly thought of our friends the Kavlicks and Vidikas (even though the Vidikas are distant relatives the babies brought them closer to us)
The Kavlicks and Vidikas recently raised money in order to buy the quints new carseats...crazy to think that something as simple as moving up to the next size carseat could cost almost a thousand dollars in itself!! Not only did they raise enough for carseats but also for potty training toilets for each bathroom, pull-ups, wipes, and some of their favorite finger foods! They are such selfless people...someday I hope I'm able to be there for them when they need something!
My friend's parents were in town from Louisiana and stopped by to visit...unfortunately Giovanni had fallen asleep eating lunch so they didn't get to meet him but everyone else enjoyed the visit.
Leighton and Baylor have such a cute bond...there is just something about him that Leighton loves...maybe it's his hat!
Jade was so quiet and reserved while they were there...they didn't get to see the little firecracker that she truly is!
One of the most common questions I get asked is how I do it....these pictures are exactly how I do it-it might be an exhausting night but how can tour day go wrong when this is what you wake up to?
My friend Charity and her husband started screen printing Tshirts this past year and after I pinned something similar they made these shirts for the babies...too funny!
