The last four months sure have been going fast!!! The first three months of Kaeli's life were a revolving door of illness. Between the kids and I we had two or three of us sick constantly. Mastitis for me, twice, along with three colds. Colten had croup 3 times (one time we were told to go to the ER because no matter what we did he was barely breathing) and a double ear infection. Chest infection for Cameron. Kai had a chest infection and ear infection. Little Kaeli had 3 colds and thrush....twice! Luckily by Christmas we were getting back to normal and the whole family was together again. Hayden finally got to meet his little sister. He really enjoyed her, just like the rest of the boys. They are all growing up so fast. At Kaeli's 4 month check up she was 14lbs 11oz and 25 inches. She seems on the smaller side to me but apparently she is in the high 70th percentile for height and weight. Hayden, Cameron and Colten are having a great year at school. Kai just gets funnier everyday. He adores his little sister. He has is still busy but is not showing those "terrible twos" so much. We are enjoying watching these kids grow everyday. They never cease to amaze us.
Seeing how I am horrible about sending pictures to people I decided I would make a blog for those who live far away. We are a family of seven and we live in Washington. We love the seasons and our beautiful surroundings, even if it means we also have to deal with the rain. We are completely focused on our family and love watching our children grow. We have learned to enjoy the moment and to not take life for granted. So sit back and take a look at what life is like on the Durbin Express.
Focusing your life solely on making a buck shows a certain poverty of ambition. It asks too little of yourself. Because it's only when you hitch your wagon to something larger than yourself that you realize your true potential.--Barack Obama
