Caution: Adoption may be hazardous to your health!

Of course that title is all in jest. But seriously, as evidenced by the pictures below, I may be having some issues adjusting to this whole 2 more kids thing. In all honesty, I am not the cleanest person I know. (Shocking!) But I am also not necessarily a slob. It's just that between all of the head to toe poop blow outs by my two baby kidlets, and then the barfing which is new the last two days. Not to mention the clinginess, meals and my other two kids, things have gotten a bit wonky here as far as house cleaning.

I have had many fantastic friends offer to come and clean, but have also kept them away because of the strep throat that invaded our house. Hopefully that is long gone (Ava and I still never got it, knock on wood). But in the grand scheme of things, messiness isn't that big of a deal in my eyes (and hopefully my husbands!!) The kids seem to be attaching wonderfully and things still continue to go better than I had thought they would. Praise God!

It's good too because I don't think that I have shared this before but we have Nelson baby #5 coming this Friday! He was a little surprise blessing that God decided to throw into the mix. Some day, I am going to ask God about his sense of humor!!

Anyway, we would appreciate your prayers for this Friday for everything to go good. Can you imagine what my house is going to look like next week?!


  1. No, that was definitely a detail you have not yet shared! Oh my word!!!! Congratulations! Can't wait to hear more. :)

  2. Jess-are you pregnant? We had a surprise pregnancy of our own, debuting in September!

  3. Wowza! Let the good times roll! You will get through this girl and in a year you will laugh at it, thank God and kiss all those sweet kids!
