Welcome Amelia!

Sweet little Amelia Rose.
9lbs 2oz born on December 9. 
We are so happy we got to meet you at your arrival into this world!
Your Mom is a real trooper... and I thought I had a long, hard, pretty natural labour!

 The little family of three.

 Cousins! Welcome to the crazy Amelia!

 Cousins born in 2013... Alexander, Jax, Mya and Amelia

 New Mom... or seasoned pro?!
That Uncle Jeryn, new Dad and still super fun Uncle!
Glad we could come and make the first few days of parenthood so crazy and loud that life probably seems so peacefully quiet and easy now that we are gone!
You're welcome!  ;)

That lady is crazy.

Well I am heading to BC again with my 4 kids!  Yikes!
It looks like its just me and my hatchlings heading out from this part of the country, so I decided to pick a nice looking day for driving and hit the pavement, even though Wolfe baby still hasn't exited the oven yet!  And I don't blame baby... it is darn cold out here!
Send happy, safe and quiet drive thoughts my way... here goes nothing!
I was going to just post a cute picture I took of the 4 of them in their toques but found I hadn't uploaded it off my camera yet and said camera is already loaded!
So here are some random pictures instead.
They make a heart... and my heart melt!

The art of holding two babies at one time.  This way you have
one hand free to do important things, such as; itching your nose.

What a sweet brother you have Shayla.
So do twins run in your family?  Says the ultrasound tech.
Yes they do.  And why do you ask... oh this is why!  ;)

Tristan was all about pushing Great Gramma Gooch.
Unfortunately he wasn't the safest driver.
Fortunately GGG is a sweetie... or just too quiet to be heard!

Just thought this was a sweet picture.

Great Gramma Pinyon... thinking of you lots lately. 
Very glad we get to see you again so soon.
I'll post again once I am back out to this place of -37 with the wind chill.  While in BC I plan to be to busy out enjoying winter, that and holding a lot of babies!

Twin line up!

This picture was taken in the week between Mya and Jax`s 2 month immunizations and Olivia and Emily`s 4 month immunizations.
This is what they weighed:
Mya: 11lbs 5oz
Jax: 12lbs 13oz
Olivia: 11lbs 6oz
Emily: 12lbs 3oz
So one of my 2 month olds was bigger than both the 4 month olds and the other was pretty much the same size as one of the 4 month olds! 
Must be all my creamy milk, says the health nurse... so if I were a cow I guess I`d be a jersey! :)
I suppose it is an appropriate analogy as I do feel like a bit of a milk cow these days!

And more puke!
Actually it wasn't that bad.  Tristan threw up in the night a few nights ago and then once the following day. He even got it in the bucket a couple of times!  Which made me more excited then I probably should have been... I first thought. Until the following day when he ran away from me and the bucket spewing his liquid stomach contents everywhere!  And I realized I had every right to feel that excited about puking into a bucket!!!
So we spent Friday in our PJ's watching TV.  Tristan got lots of snuggles, some flat ginger-ale and a very generous amount of time in front of the boob tube. As my Mom would call it!
Pop and TV, it doesn't get much better than that... in Shayla's opinion.

So it was pretty funny last night when Shayla woke up at 2am complaining of a sore tummy and then proceeded to puke all over her bed.  OK that part wasn't funny.  The funny part was once we had her all cleaned up and I looked at her and said, 'Well we better go cuddle on the couch and watch some TV.' Her face brightens right up and she shouts, 'Yes!'  Like puking was the best thing that had ever happened to her. And then she continues, 'And tomorrow I can't eat yogurt because it's bad for your guts when you're sick.  I will just have to drink pop and watch TV, right Mom?'
That's right Shayla, getting sick is almost as good as winning the lottery in this house!
