Have I become that Mom?

So on our road trip Noah let me that yes I have become that Mom. What Mom is that you ask? Well for any of you that have ever watched What Not to Wear you will know what I am talking about.
So we pull into Salmon, Idaho and Noah asks me," Mom why do you have church here?" I begin to explain that there is church everywhere. He interrupts me and says "No Mom why do you have church hair?" So he was obviously confused because I had actually done my hair and it was not Sunday. So I guess I have become the Mom that only does her hair on Sundays. The rest of the time it is slicked back into some sort of pony. Sad but true! Oh well there are worse things, right? If I could just get up earlier maybe I would have time to do my hair everyday. Right now I would rather sleep!

6 weeks? Where does the time go?

I can not believe that it has been 6 weeks since Lily joined us here on earth. Thus far she has been a really good baby. Her novelty has not worn off for her siblings they still want to love her all the time.
Things that I want to remember so that i can tell her someday:
I thought her umbilical cord was never going to fall off, it took 3 1/2 weeks!
I did not know that such a little girl could have such stinky gas!
Jackson seems to have a very special bond with Lily, she usually calms down when he talks to her. Since Lily came Jackson has been having less tantrums. Yeah!

We took our first road trip with 4 kiddos. It was my grandmas 80th B-day so my Mom planned a surprise party for her. Off to Salmon, Idaho we went! We stopped in Boise on the way and stayed with my sister before we all made the trek to Salmon. The kids got to meet their new Cousin Gage for the first time. Gage is 2 months older than Lily. You would think it was more like 9 months older from the size of him. I affectionately call him Gigantor. He is adorable! Here are some pictures from our whirlwind trip. It was a lot of work but I am glad that we went. The kids had a great time with their cousins! It was not long enough, it seemed like I was always nursing so I did not get to visit a whole lot but it was worth it to see everyone!
