We did start the week out with a nice time with my husband's family for Thanksgiving. His brother along with his family were in town for the week. They also have four kids all within just a few months of our kids' ages, so they spent many days playing together. I'm thankful they all get along so well and had such a good time. It was hard to see them go.
At the beginning of the week, I did have to break out the maternity clothes. Mostly due to comfort, and also because I am not a huge fan of the muffin-top look. My belly is really starting to pooch out there. I was hoping to hold out a few more weeks before switching to the maternity clothes, but alas, that was not the case. I do prefer being comfortable. I have still been bleeding some, very light spotting, but still there.
The kids are all doing well. Isabelle is a fantastic reader, she still loves helping me with cooking, and she's really good at it. She will often suggest things I should add to the food, like different spices, and it does end up being quite yummy. She also loves helping with (bossing) her brothers. Michael is learning to read pretty good too. He is a man of action, always moving, can't say anything quiet, can't sit still, but we do love him. He has a very tender heart. Titus loves to be rowdy with Michael. When Titus is by himself, he will play very nice and quiet for a long time. He is quite the thinker and sometimes you wonder if he is even paying attention, but he definitely is! He is either super serious, or super goofy. Levi will be two years old in just a couple of weeks. He is such a little ham. Everything he does is always with a smile on his face. Such a happy boy! Lately, when he is playing with his siblings and doesn't get what he wants he either resorts to pinching them, or yelling quite loudly to inform everyone of his displeasure. Good times! We love these kiddos so much and all of their differences.
I hope you all had a nice Thanksgiving with your family!
