Fourth pregnancy is a breeze...(ahem)

Now I may look like a drunk pregnant woman in this picture but since I don't know photoshop & how to replace a face, this will have to do. Tammy said...'just take a picture like Suzy did' well my cameraman captured my moment while talking & half blinking. Nothing like Suzy's which was cute and classy in her last month of pregnancy...oh well, I did add a bronze tone to try & diminish the drugged out look
I have a few pictures to prove just how easy pregnancy can be with four kids...
Tessa is in charge of folding all laundry & putting it away Photobucket
Eliza does all the pick up and vacuuming
Summer washes all the dishes before she is allowed to go to bed
Amelia must scrub the toilets every other day

Sisters are in charge of nurturing & caring for eachother throughout the entire 9 months

and when small jobs come up like washing down the van...they better get their buns to work before I have to ask

What else is a mom supposed to do when she feels like she's 10 months pregnant!? So maybe I'm only 8 months along but I'm finally at peace with being pregnant during the summer, swollen feet and all (hopefully I can hold on to that feeling for another month)
So close, yet so far away!!!

Let's go Swimming!

6 weeks of swim team & all three of them are ready for the Olympics! Okay so maybe it's just cute to see them swim as slow as snails & after every meet Tessa tells me she is so excited to get her first place ribbon...umm, we're still waiting.

just keep swimming!!!

and look who stands patiently while the sun goes down watching her sisters compete
swimming buns
(she has a very strict diet & workout routine of lollipops & Pilate's to keep her buns so cute)

Baby Shower Surprise


I took these pictures for Carrie so that she would always have proof of how loved she is but I now post them for myself to prove to Lori that she really can keep a secret. It's always more fun to throw a party for someone else so I told Lori I would do the house & food if she would cover the invite list & I didn't even clue in when she told me people were volunteering to bring everything from drinks, main dish & dessert (I figured she didn't like my menu) So when the time came to welcome everyone...I did and then Alma took over & thanked everyone for 'coming out to Zana & Carries baby shower!' I think I was more surprised that I was surprised...Carrie is due a month before me (I'll get over being jealous around the end of August) & is having a boy as well so it was more fun opening presents sitting next to her. Now our baby boy won't be caught wearing any pink b/c we got over 20 outfits, lots of onesies, cozy blankets & the essential bath robe:) I stuff really does make it more fun!!!


The next morning the girls reopened everything with lots of "oooo, it's sooo cute"

(Alma, if you get around to reading this by the end of the year, I have sisters bugging me to bug you for your enchilada recipes & yes I'm dying to make them for myself, BEST BABY SHOWER FOOD EVER!)
