Mother of 5

It has taken on a world of its own! I really need to be on top of everything! And so far its going well! But there is no way I am taking them all food shopping! Might have to start doing that after they go to bed! But I love the fact that I am already seen them learn and grow! I love been their for them! There are so many little moments that I need to start writing down so I don't forget them!

I set out the clothes each night for the following morning... I giggle to myself to see the 5 sets laid out! I am getting up almost an hour earlier so I am not running around like a chicken with its head cut off!!

Monday mornings are the busiest with everyone needing to be somewhere!!! I felt like a Bus dropping them all off including AL at 4 different places!

Lil Miss is going well but has been fighting off a cold I am praying it doesn't get any worse!!! She so VERY close to taking her first steps! And on Friday it will be her 1st Birthday!

Button is really opening up! Its really sweet to see her personalty starting to blossom! She does have some issues with eating! I don't think she has seen a lot of different foods! We tried feeding her potatoes and it was really hard to convince her to try it! After A LOT of coxing she tried a little bit of it and ate it and ENJOYED it!! This has happened with a few different food items!

Kagen has done a great job of the OLDER brother! And it so sweet to see him watch out for his foster/sisters! Even if hes the only boy apart from Al and Grady (the dog)

Tiarna is getting a little over it!! Arliah and Button LOVE to be where Tiarna is! They want to do what she is doing!!! Tiarna also loves to be the Little Mummy wanting to REALLY help in everything apart from a dirty bum!! LOL!!

Arliah is taking everything in is stride and apart from a few hic cups at the start she seems to be doing well! If we could only get her over the flu she has! Which has left her coughing to the point of throwing up!

Hey- make sure that baby drinks LOTS & LOTS of water. It will help her to rid herself of the cough that she has left over from the flu. When she goes to bed at night, let her sleep with her head elevated. 3 or 4 days it should be almost gone, if not entirely.

I like to saline the nose to get rid of all the stuff up there when my kids are sick. I do it 2-3 times a day.

It sounds like you're having fun with all your little chicks. I love reading your updates on all the kiddos.

Sounds like you're pretty busy, and loving it! Sometimes it is something quite simple, like getting up an hour earlier, that makes the whole day go smoothly. As well as writing down cute things, hope you're taking plenty of photos. Lot's of scrapbooking ahead (and no time to do it with all those kids!)

I'm glad that things are going well. Sounds like you have it under control. Little miss is 2 days older than my Hannah and she is getting close to walking too.
Love the pics of your kids up top. Really cute.
