Here is a video of Nathan and Jack singing I am a Child of God. One night for family home evening we were singing it and it was just so sweet to hear their voices singing it that I had to get it on video.

Well, we are adjusting well to having three kids. I am suprised at how much work it is-I feel so busy these days but I am getting the hang of it. I feel like such a spectacle in the world though. We were walking through the mall this week with me carrying Dallen in his carseat (because I forgot part of the stroller and couldn't use it) with two more boys trailing behind me and I realized that we really did stand out among the people-me and my gaggle of boys. Oh well, I don't mind being a spectacle!

Dallen started smiling about 2 weeks ago. We have had a hard time getting it on camera but finally got a pretty good one.

My dad came to visit us last week and we had tons of fun! Actually we surprised him with the airline tickets and the idea was that he would come and help bless Dallen. Turns out church got canceled because of snow so we didn't get to bless him but it was still fun to have Grandpa visit. We even took a trip to the Mustard Museum and the Chocolate House while he was here.

Dallen is finally starting to learn to sleep and we are so glad! He has been tougher than our other babies (maybe why having 3 seems so hard). But I think we have turned a corner and he is going to be a better sleeper-I hope! Oh, he has also lost all his hair on top but I can see new fuzz growing in.

The big brothers are still just loving Dallen-Jack still can't see Dallen without commenting on how cute he is! It is fun. Nathan is still loving preschool and Jack is excited because he is going to start a soccer class.
We are 100% sick of Wisconsin winters. We have had the most snow ever recorded in WI and it is only February! Not to mention the days that are 40 below 0 with the windchill! Ugh!

What is Dallen doing?

I took this picture this morning just to show Josh what Dallen was doing because this is NOT something he did last night other than for one hour between 11 and 12 and again for about an hour between 6:30 and 7:30. The child apparently does in fact know how to sleep in his cradle, he just forgets how or likes to tease mom and dad during the night. It was a long night! I was up every single hour of the night. Ugh! I hope I can get a nap in today!

But Dallen is a great baby overall. Poor thing has a cold, I think that is why he isn't sleeping well at night. He is sweet as can be. Still tiny and snuggly and we are loving having him around. I can tell that life with three is going to be quite a bit harder than life with 2 was. I wasn't really planning on that. Everyone said going from 1-2 was harder. I guess we will see what the coming months hold.

My business is doing fantastic which is great but does add to the busyness of my life. Oh, and this week I celebrate my business' 4th bday! I had a huge huge order last week which was fun-made about $600 in one order. Nice! The boys are slowly getting back on schedule after being totally off for the last little bit. Hopefully we can get things back to normal fairly quickly.

Anyway, here are a few more pictures. The one of Jack and Dallen was what I caught them doing this morning and I ran for the camera. I thought it was so sweet. The other is Dallen showing off his awake face and then I had to have a picture of the cute hat that Dallen got from the hospital.
