Three tiny hinies! Look how much shorter Ford is than Maryn - they're only a week apart! Please ignore the bedsheet as a curtain in the back - the shutters are actually being installed today!

The Rays came for the long weekend and we had a blast! It was nonstop kids, food, and craziness! I can't believe in a few months we'll add two more munchkins to our family! Parker will only be three years older than the babies, so it will be so much fun when they're all a little older and can play together. Joseph's aunt Katie says we're going to look like a small kindergarten class! I don't think Papa and Dede will be flying all 9 of us out to Seattle anytime soon!

Maryn has long arms like her Uncle Joseph!

This is Ford's favorite spot in our new house - it's an empty cabinet in the kitchen, and he crawls in and out of it no less than 20 times a day! I'll put little things in there for him to play with while I'm cooking dinner to keep him entertained! Parker and Maryn thought it was a great place too!

Here's the house during the "snow storm" on Saturday. Ford and Maryn were both taking naps while the snow was falling, but Parker loved it!

Little Punkin'

We have big news...Ford is going to be a big brother! Meet the newest member of the Martin menagerie, Punkin Martin, due to arrive August 10th! We are overjoyed and overwhelmed! Ford and the baby will be around 21 months apart, so my life is about to get exponentially crazier! I'm 9 1/2 weeks along, and I have been TIRED! And pretty pukey. Christmas Day I did nothing but lay on my parents' couch and order my dear sweet family around. Let's just say I probably haven't been the easiest person to live with, but Joseph has kept his mouth shut and done a fabulous job taking care of us! Although, I have to ask, why is it when a man cooks dinner, EVERY single pot/pan/kitchen utensil has to be used? I just don't get it!

Joseph and my sister think the baby is a boy, but pretty much everyone else is going with girl. We'll find out at the beginning of March! Which really doesn't seem that far away! Add us to your prayer list as our new little one is cooking!
