a CrAzY life...

I know it has been a while...Life has been crazy since Adeline was born and so I haven't felt like I have had the time to post, so I have a lot of catching up to do. I have tons of pictures to post and things to write, but I'm not going to overwhelm everyone (or myself) by doing it all at once, so I will catch up over the next week or so.

As most of you already know, Roger has a new job back home by family. He started his job just seven days after Adeline was born. He has been staying with his parents and commuting to work while I stay here with our four kids trying to sell our house, so to say the least it has been a bit crazy, but we have definitely been blessed with good friends, family, and a wonderful ward (that I am so sad to leave). Roger comes home for the weekends, so we definitely look forward to that. Our house has been for sale for about 7 weeks and we have had no buyers, so we could definitely use some prayers on our behalf. The idea of moving came by surprise, but we shouldn't have been surprised, because with our past three babies we have moved shortly after they were born (I think I will wait a while to have another one). Arianne was four months and Ellie was less than three weeks. The nice thing is that I don't feel like I really have to adjust to having a new baby, because I have so many other things going on. So, When people ask how four is, I just tell them I don't really notice a difference. It feels like Adeline has always been with us.

I have included some pictures of Adeline, below. In most of them she is sleeping, because that is what she does best (except for in the night). I have tons of other pictures coming soon, which include: The fourth of July, Ellie's birthday, my sister's wedding, and more...

You're life is crazy!! hehhe.. I will definitely be praying for the selling of your house. We've had to move soon after both of our kids were born too, maybe that was what made me content with just two wink wink... We are moving to the middle east soon as well. I don't think I have your email, could you send it to me, then I can give you the details, because that will be more secure. Blessings on you and Roger, and your totally cute family!!
