I thought it would be fun to post pictures of all the kids when they were about six weeks old, to see who looks like who (whom?). So here they are:



So what do you think?

Grape popsicles and Purple Nurples..

Emma and I both have thrush. After several days of prescription meds with no relief, we had a brief stint of bottle use. Then I found Gentian Violet. Apparently this is what people used before prescriptions, but it's use dwindled because it's so messy. It stains everything it touches purple. That includes the sink, the burprags, and skin. When you use it, you paint the inside of baby's mouth with it, then nurse as usual. And if you've ever nursed a baby before, you know they aren't the neatest eaters. So now Emma has a purple face and I have Purple Nurples.

Here is a picture of Emma after the first time I used it. This is before she ate. She looks like she ate a grape popsicle nicely and neatly.

And here's some video I took of her this morning. You can see how far the GV has spread across her face. Oh, and isn't she really cute?

The many faces of Emma.

These pictures are actually about two weeks old, but I thought they were cute. Enjoy!


Somersaults are the new cool in our house. Here's the boys practicing theirs.

Pics of the kids.

These are some pictures I took of the kids last night. It started out with me trying to take a picture of Tyner's face paint, and then everyone had to get in on the action. I also finally got a picture of all four kids together. It's the very first one we've taken.

Zeke, Tyner, Sierra, and Emma

Sierra's crazy face.
Tyner didn't want me to take anymore pictures of him.
Zeke's got the one-eyebrow-up thing down.
Emma loves to be naked.
I've got more stuff to post. Someday....
