First time at the aquarium as a family of 6. It was as crazy as you could imagine!

Snuggle, sleep, eat, repeat...
There should definitely be some dinner being made and there are probably too many toys on the floor but I have a good excuse...I can’t get up & miss out on this! 💙

Someone’s happy it’s Friday🎉 Caught this one mid-giggle taking a “Lego bath.”
Family field trip to Legoland! A homeschool perk for sure. When we asked them about their favorite parts of the day, they all said taking pictures with Ninjago characters🙄

Officially one month (yesterday) and he’s already a couple inches longer than his changing pad! He’s starting to get tiny rolls on those thighs and smiles when he gets attention...especially from daddy! Seems like time goes faster with each baby!

No family photo this year...this was the best we got. Noah was an all encompassing reptile (he said he was a lizard/gecko/dinosaur🤷🏻‍♀️), Lucah was Kylo Ren, Nico was originally going to be a dinosaur too but really loved his “delivery guy outfit”😂 and ended up choosing the UPS costume to wear, and I got to hang out with the cutest little skeleton.

Mateo is basically me after visiting the pumpkin patch yesterday...also how I was feeling about today but at the moment, I’m sitting here smiling more like Noah. The house isn’t a complete disaster, school is getting done, Mateo is sleeping, & kids are fed and dressed!! But tomorrow could be a totally different story😂 Thanks for the encouragement on my last post!

Just a fuzzy, blurry capture of some of the best moments of real life...a nursing newborn & three happy boys playing and snuggling in our bed. I know this will all fly by and soon enough these long, tiresome days will seem like a distant, dreamy memory. So I am trying to remind myself to be grateful and enjoy the small monotonous things of now, because a slow Sunday morning doesn't get much better than scenes like this❤️
When it's opening day for the new Chick-fil-A in your neighborhood!! ❤️🐔We got free cookies (yes I got a whole bag🤗), free cows, gift cards for free breakfast, and of course amazing service!! #bandapartyof6

There's a brand new baby at our house! Mateo Cruz was born on Sunday evening, October 1, (1 week early) after 2 days of labor😳 He weighed 7lb14oz & measured 21 inches long. We are all home, resting, and doing well.
I'm 10 days from my due date and can still hardly believe we are doing this again. But in saying that, there is absolutely no one else I'd rather experience it with than this man right here💕He has taken such good care of me, the boys, and all the things I've let slip through the cracks over the last 9+months😆
*another favorite from our maternity/family session a couple weeks ago*

Soaking in the last few days with just these 3 and also looking forward to seeing them embrace a new baby in this same way💙💙💙
Don't get me wrong, lots of days look nothing like this, but the ones that do sure make my heart happy!

A latergram of our Sunday Funday. We did a harbor cruise and then what may be our last visit to the aquarium as a family of 5😳

Noah got up this morning and went downstairs, unprompted. When we called for him he came up and said, "come see what I was doing!" So we go down and see that he made breakfast for us! 😭How is he so big and grown up already?? Anyway, after the library and some time at the park, these guys definitely deserved a treat for lunch. I didn't get around to sharing anything for our first day of school so this will have to do. I think it's a perfect example of just how big my babies are getting! Noah started 1st grade and wants to be a fireman or policeman when he grows up, Lucah is doing some pre-k stuff when he doesn't fight me too much😂 and wants to be a "spaceman" when he grows up, and Nico carries around a backpack saying, "is it my school time yet?!"
