Random May

Cortney has been working a lot lately and I have been putting kids to sleep by myself a lot lately.  This guy is not a good sleeper and it is a major chore getting him to sleep.  Look at that face though. 

I had the chance to watch Dexter and Dougie a couple of times in May.  Dexter is a handsome dude.  

 Cortney is starting to get ready for hunting season so he packed Henry down to Cali's house and back. It was hilarious to see such a big boy in that thing. 

Theo is OBSESSED with slushies, smoothies, soda, milkshakes...ect.  He goes crazy and makes a huge mess. 

Slushie run for FHE. 

I had a crazy day where Cali was on vacation and needed me to watch her littlest kids.  Then Angelique needed me to watch Dougie and Dexter.  My sister in law Allie was staying with me too so I  knew we could handle it.  But then...Allie got the stomach flu that we had.  She was down for the count so I tried to help with Nora too.  It was the craziest day. I had 7 kids 3 and under and 4 of them were babies.  Luckily I had a miracle happen and I never had more than 2 babies awake at a time.  It was crazy but once it was over I felt I can handle anything.  

Willie.  Good boy.  (plus I love how there is a white baby foot in the corner of this picture...I'm not sure which baby it belonged too...maybe Nora)

 I look crazy in these but this is the reality of the situation....

 Nora and Hens.

 Theo and Dexter

Getting Nora to sleep. 

 at one point I even got a shower.  Little Nora wouldn't want me to lay her down.  

It was so fun having Mike and Allie here.  We stayed up late talking a lot of nights, and it was so fun getting to know their gorgeous baby Eleanor.  They were here 10 days and we ALL really missed them once they were gone. 

One of the nights Allie was here I heard Theo crying in the living room.  I picked him up and tried to sooth him but kept on talking to Allie.  Then she was like "oh my gosh he is totally bleeding!"  I looked down and blood was everywhere.  All over the floor and all over his foot.  I wrapped his foot in a towel and was saying to Allie "do I need to go to the instacare??"  She said yes and off I went.  I didn't even want to look at it.  It was so scary. 

We waited FOREVER at the instacare.  Theo was so good though.  I was so glad Allie was there to watch my kids.  She cleaned up all the blood too...which was really nice.

Theo had fallen on the screen door which is razor sharp at the bottom.  (I didn't know that) He basically sliced his toe in half...luckily it went right next to the bone and didn't cut into that.  

This was taken the day we took the stitches off.  I thought they looked like they did a terrible job of stitching but now that the stitches are out his foot looks good.

My brother Tyler came and cleaned my carpets for Mother's day.  It made me so happy.

Cort helping.
