Merry Christmas

Hello all!
We have had a wild and crazy past 4 months! Sometimes I think so highly of myself that I think its only me, only my life is this crazy...bc no one else would survive this mess.....But then reality eventually sets in and tells me I am a little too full of myself and life is crazy for everyone. We are all freakin warriors to survive this 'post-tree-of-knowledge-eating-fruit' day. Seriously, Jesus, I'm ready.
anyways while I wait, I will give you an update on this circus family :)
First up, heres our newest sweetheart:

Labor was awesome and she's awesome. No more awesome than my other two, but still pretty awesome! She was born on Oct 16th and I honestly can't remember her stats...forgive me :/
And once she was here, it became abundantly and heartbreakingly clear that my little middle child needed more than I was able to give him. He is a little hurricane, and by little, I mean bigger than hurricane Katrina, and he leaves a trail of tears and destruction behind him.....kidding....kinda ;)
Love him to death, but he is a full time job. So he started going to preschool at easter seals full time, monday-friday....
And I may have filled the oceans with my tears having to make that decision.. GET A GRIP GIRL. I tried, but nothing was sticking. anyways, I have graduated from ocean making to more like little rivers. Its a good thing. He's doing great there and I only miss him every single second he's gone.....but ITS A GOOD THING. It is what he needed, what I needed, what T and V needed too! So now there's this big brother who will fight to the death to protect baby T from L, but wants nothing to do with her otherwise. haha, but I'll take it! L can NOT keep his hands off of her, and they are far from gentle hands. He comes running everytime she makes a peep, as if she's calling for him. He loves to try to pick her up the second I turn my back on them. He is just alllllll about his new baby sister. But, back to big brother, defender of the baby. He is doing great. He went through a super emotional stage when T came home and attention was only for necessities. But once L started preschool, V perked back up. He is definitely my little attention hog.....anddddd he's favorite word is mommy. Oh My Goodness, he says it about a thousand times a day and always in large clusters. There is no "mommy (insert waiting silence here)" its always always always "mommymommymommymommymommymommy.....". PHEW, I don't think John envies me being at home anymore ;)


...and the babe is waking. I'll update if I live through another day!
love to my peeps...if you are still out there....
