It's going to be a long day. Have been awake since 3:30 am. Couldn't go back to sleep and as I watched it get lighter and lighter decided it wasn't worth fighting it anymore since Meredith will be up again here soon to eat. Wish I could say I'll catch a nap but her habit so far is to be up enough most of the day to not allow for a nap but then sleep great between 3 and 6 pm, too late for a nap myself. And Rob has to take the kids to church so he won't be here to watch her for me. So, yah, will be a long day. Figured I'd get up and add some pics to the blog since it's been awhile.
We have the hardest time getting her to fall asleep sometimes. And then occassionally she'll pull something like this where we set her down for just a sec and she totally conks out!

About a week ago we found out about a strawberry festival at Lee Farms. We decided it would be fun to get out of the house and go check it out. Unfortunately our Oregon rain had come back and it was a pretty dreary day. Fortunately though, we managed to time it between downpours :) The farm had things like a hay maze, pony rides, and bouncy house type things. The kids rode ponies for the first time ever and enjoyed it. Seth wouldn't get on until he saw Elizabeth and Jonathan do it. 

And here are just some random pictures of the kids. Meredith is getting so big already! She is six weeks old today and time has just flown by. We moved her out of our room the other night and so far she's doing really well and sleeping a little bit longer between feedings. Yay!!

Trying to get Jonathan to just smile is like pulling teeth. Had to take this shot like 4 times before I finally quit. He was pulling a face in every single one, this is the best I could manage :)

Meredith finally likes to be in her swing.

Like I said, he can't just smile nice for the camera :)
