Mama's Lap Dogs

Joe snapped this picture of us right before bedtime. Mama had just returned from her "ever-so-fun" root canal and was exhausted. Ben and Savannah were not feeling well, and Ethan & Andrew wanted up in my lap too.



Ahhhh...I immediately felt better!



This is a daily ritual in our home: Cuddling up to a video with all of our chick-a-dees, right before bedtime. Usually, Joe holds two and I hold two--but tonight, they all wanted in Mama's lap!

I love it...favorite time 'o the day for me.

Sweet Dreams!

How sweet!

I hope your root canal was ok and your mouth is feeling better! My husband had 2 root canals this summer and he said it wasn't fun. :) Have a Merry Christmas!

mallory said...

it has to be the best feeling in the world to have had a rough day (OR good day) and then have all those beautiful babies to love on when you get home =)

The Reeves bunch said...

Oh my gosh! I love those times when she just wants to be with me. No other motive then just to spend sometime with her mama. So precious!

I said "Awwwww" out loud before reading your blog entry. :) What a precious moment caught on camera. So sorry you're dealing with a painful root canal. I hope you're feeling better today.

TEXOSE said...

How cute.... My littles do that with the dad too but they don't fit anymore together. We have invested in a larger seat for them all. We went with a double pasapan for them and the dog that want up in Daddy's lap. It is so adorable. Thanks for sharing... I think yall might need a bigger chair before too long to...hehehehehehe
What a blessing! Love yah and miss yah...ALL!!!

Stacey said...

Rachel said...

That's too cute...

Aggiema (Michelle) said...

Sorry to hear about the root canal, those are no fun at all. Hope you are feeling all better soon. I prescribe some more of those sweet baby hugs and cuddles in the chair!

Stacey said...

Too cut. I hope the root canal went well. I bet coming home to those 4 cute faces made all the pain go away.

Lees said...

Melts your heart! Hey - sorry I haven't written lately - been crazy here too - but not as crazy as it sounds like it has been there! Pray for you and the rest of the pieces often! Merry Christmas - may you and Joe get some special Christmas time together too!

How precious! I have spent the last couple of days reading about your journey from the beginning. I must say...what an inspiration. I hope when my husband and I have children, we can find strength and happiness in every situation as you have. Congratulations and I look forward to reading about what your future may hold!

Suz, I have been reading your blog for a while now (thank you for being such a blessing!) and I read this today and immediately thought of you and the similar experience you had with Savannah: http://lewandowski-quadruplets.blogspot.com/ You are such an encourager and I just thought I would pass on the link to you.

Christmas blessings to you and your precious family!

Valerie

Jessicca said...

Too precious Suz. I can't believe how big they're all getting! Thinking about you all this Christmas.

Sooz said...

I had this post pulled up on my laptop at work during my lunch and I heard about 20 "Awwww's" in the background.
So sweet!
Hope your feeling better after the root canal. Ouch!

How amazing. I found your blog on Tuesday. Ever since, I have been nothing but engulfed in it. I started at the very beginning. I couldn't stop. It was like an amazing novel. Your faith, positive attitude and great motherly love are things I strive for. I am not a mom yet. Don't tell a sole, but you have given me baby fever like no other. (I started a blog a couple weeks ago, and last night I blogged about your blog, and announced that it DIDN'T give me baby-fever. I had to tell a little lie to keep the mom and MIL from getting too excited.) You are again, truly inspirational. I can't believe I read all the way to present day. I am going to go back and watch all the videos now. I didn't have a chance to watch them along the way. I hope you have an amazing and blessed Christmas with your growing little blessings.

I miss those days when my little boy would cuddle up with me in a chair.. now he is in Argentina and I am waiting for grandkids to cuddle with. Enjoy your little family all to soon they will be grownup and you will be holding their kids. Wishing you and your sweet family Merry Christmas a Happy New Year.

Kelly said...

Love these pics! Such precious moments! Did you ever know you could have so much love for your little ones!! Thanks for posting, I love your blog!! I sorta relate, but not really at all, just my Caleb is the same age of your babies (except I just had 1) We are expecting again though due in August!

Is that the sweetest picture! Babies are such a comfort so that is like comfort xs 4!

ann said...

Darling picture! Have a great Christmas with those little sweethearts!
Can you tell me what brand and model of safety gate you have at the top of your stairs? My sister and bil have a staircase similar to that are expecting their first this spring. They're going to be needing something like you have.

Oof, a root canal?

Must make having four babies seem like a walk in the park!

Heal soon and happy winter and Merry Christmas to you!

I love this! That's my favorite time of day too, when my two little ones (2 and 5 years old) snuggle up in my lap. The closer they get, the better!
