A Picture . . .

They say a picture is worth a thousand words . . .

Noah did this almost everyday last week. This particular bump is from RUNNING into the piano!

Elijah is growing up waaaayyyy too fast!! He now has 2 teeth, with number three on the way. He crawls (mostly the army way). And he can pull himself up to stand and "cruise" around holding onto furniture and people. He loves being mobile.

Marlee LOVES school. Her favorite part? "Playing". She's learning to spell. Now Nathan and I need to come up with a new system of talking in front of her. Spelling is no longer going to be secretive.And I just love this photo!!

Marlee, Noah, Vance, and Elijah

Your kids really are the cutest. That last picture is great, and I really want to pinch Elijah's cheeks!

Absolutely adorable. I can't find the right words to describe how perfect they all are.

I can say this...that bump makes him look tough. I wouldn't mess with him.

cute post of your kids! Today as your van passed my van in front of the school, one of your cute twins blew me a kiss. It was so CUTE!!! I just had to blow him one back. That really gave me a chuckle!!

ORMSBY FAMILY! I can't believe I found you guys. Look at your beautiful family - you guys are in trouble with all those darling kids....I always knew Marley would be gorgeous and now look at her!!! Where is your family at these days? Hope all is well...

Everyone is absolutely correct of course!! You do have gorgeous kids.. I can't believe how fast they are growing up, especially that gorgeous baby Elijah.
Tell Noah if Nan were there she would kiss his booboo all better! :)

Ouch! That bump is a good one! These are adorable pictures. I can't believe what a big girl Marley is. I love the slide picture too!

Great pictures! I can't believe Elijah is 'cruising' already! Time flies too fast! Such beautiful kids! Love ya!

Beating your kids isn't a good way to keep Nate from traveling so much! :) Elijah will be walking before Millie for sure! She's lazy like me. :)

I know all about the bumps.. Ty has a permanent one from the dining table... I love the kids on teh slide picture! So classic. I love it!

It is always a sad when they learn to spell, you can never go back because she will repeat what you are spelling for the younger ones to hear. Talking in code has now become more complicated.xt
