Phone photos

I don't know all the dates these photos were taken (my phone doesn't keep a date). They are in chronological order. The first picture was when L&L were a couple weeks old. The last picture is from a week and a half ago.
Proof that Ezra likes helping around the house.

(I will show this to him when he is 13......He will still like helping when he is 13 right?.......positive affirmations!)

Snuggling in the stroller at the end of our family walk.
Pet store, a free and entertaining place to go!
Ezra was hanging out by the turtles and waving to the birds.

Beautiful shopper
10/01/2010
We went grocery shopping as a family. We hit four stores with three kids in under three hours, with minimal crying....not bad.
Here's how it went......
We need two carts. One cart is for the babies (they ride in their car seats) and the other cart holds Ezra and the food.

1st stop Sunflower market: The whole gang went in.
2nd stop Sam's club: Daddy went in, the rest of us stayed in the car. Mommy fed Levi.
3rd stop Trader Joe's: Mommy went in. Lucy and Ezra stayed in their car seats. Daddy held Levi in the front seat because he was still unhappy.
4th stop Smiths: The whole gang went in.
The babies cried all the way home.

It was a four eyed four legged flying purple people eater......
Yes, we still have thrush:( We are now trying Gentian Violet to get rid of it. It stains EVERYTHING this lovely shade of purple. If this doesn't work we trying everything all over again until the thrush is gone. Let's hope this works!

LOVE the purple mouths! That is what I have used to get rid of trush with our babies! Hope it works for you! I really freaked my mother in law once when she went to hold Lucie...she thought I had let her suck on a pen! :) Your babies are so stinking cute!

Such ADORABLE babies... All of them (even though Ezra is a BIG boy now) Sorry you are still dealing with thrush.... what a pain! We go shopping as a family all the time together and it happens a lot like you described!! Fun times... we may have to rethink shopping as a family when we have #4! lol

Yay for Dyson vacuums! At least that's what I think I see in the picture.
Your babies snuggle with each other! So cute! Mine just whap each other in the face. Yours also seem to look a lot more alike than mine do. But maybe you'd say the same thing :)
You'll have to let me know if that Gentian Violet works.
Way to go on the shopping trip! I get anxiety just thinking about trying to do multiple errands!

I love the pic of Ezra with the vacuum! Ryan likes to play with ours until we turn it on and then he runs and hides. Yay for a successful shopping trip. Isn't is funny how our definition of a successful trip changes with kids!

Brittany- I just wanted to let you know that I really admire your determination and persistance with breastfeeding. I know it is probably very difficult, painful, etc. I would hope I could have that much strength if faced with the same situation. Keep the good work! You're a fantastic mother!

Hey Brittany! I have been taking an herb class, and the other night while reading about garlic it said that "allicin (the "active" ingredient in garlic) is active against fungi which includes Candida. It is even more effective than Nystatin". I don't know if you have already tried liquid garlic, but I just kept thinking about you and thought I should tell you! Hope you guys are doing AWESOME!!!!
Love,
Amber
