welcome Emery July 7th

me and my little guys (Zek seems so big now)

So it's been over 4 months since my last post. Let's just say things have been crazy around here. Getting adjusted with Zek and being pregnant.

Emery (Emerson Thomas) was born July 7th and weighed 9 lbs 4 oz and was 22 inches long. He is so beautiful and so loved by his big sisters and big brother.

Zek is trying to adjust to his new roll as big brother. Big changes for the little guy. He is having some issues with crying a lot and clingyness towards daddy. Thankfully Zek is an awesome sleeper. Waking up with two babies would not be fun.

Zek is doing well otherwise and is crawling everywhere and getting into everything. He is pulling up to stuff and will walk behind a little walk behind toy. I think he will be walking really soon. He is also growing like crazy.

Zek loves to get into the girls toys and seems to do it to make them mad. He is filling his roll as little brother really well :)

We are all doing well, just trying to adjust to life as a family of 6 now. We jumped from 4 to 6 very quickly. I think we are adjusting better than I had imagined, though.


  1. I was starting to get worried!!! So glad to see an update! Emery is absolutely ADORABLE! Congratulations! I am sure the next couple of months will see many can-I-just-crawl-under-the-covers type moments, but eventually it will get easier. hahaa. At least, I'm pretty sure it will. :)

  2. Glad to see you are all doing so well. :) You have expanded a lot, but they are both so cute :)

  3. Wow! Congratulations on the new addition - I'm sure life got real busy, real fast! ;) Looking forward to hearing about the adventures of four kids! Welcome to the world Emery!

  4. Congratulations on the new baby! So glad everyone is hanging in there and adjusting. Remember, the best stuff comes out of chaos. ;-)

  5. Congrats!!!! I was wondering when the little one would be here. What a great name. Your boys are going to have so much fun together!
    God bless!
