Here's my little dolly.....and Olivia's!


Can you tell which is the real baby? LOL! I think that Isabella's gotten so big but then when we took this picture, I realize that she's now about the size, maybe a little bigger, than my other babies have been at birth! Yesterday, by the way, was her ultrasound due date....by my dates, she would have been due November 9th. Seems like a lifetime has passed since she was born! I think I've gathered a few gray hairs since then too! :) It's actually been going pretty well but the hardest thing is the amount of time that goes into caring for her and the others now pretty much puts me in debt for time! I truly don't feel like I even get all the basics attended to before my day is done! It's mostly because she is very much a lap baby! My husband has been travelling a lot now again too so that doesn't help. When he's home, the other kids then at least have another adult to harass so then at least evenings and weekends are equal opportunity for both of us; equal opportunity for child-induced harassment and equal opportunity for ditch time (just ditching to the laundry room or garage...nowhere exciting...well, I guess I'm at the point I find uninterrupted time in the laundry room exciting!!!!).

That is just an adorable picture. Now that my youngest is three, I miss having a little baby to hold (truthfully, though, I don't miss the sleep deprivation). Hang in there . . . you know it gets better!

We took a picture like this of Robby cause we couldn't believe HOW small he was! We did it again with the twins because they also were small {for us at least ... use to 8 and 9 pounders and then to have littl 5 and 6 pounders!} Great pix!
