A Weekend Sleep Over with Cousin Carter

We had a blast keeping my nephew, Carter, this weekend! It was adorable to watch him chase his older cousins around---he would mimic everything they would do. SO SOOOOO CUTE!


And this is one of my favorite pics of all time!

Carter LOOOOOOVES Ben! He follows him around the house and calls out: “Bennnnnnniee… Bennnnnnnieeeeeee”. Ben is SO great with younger children and adores babies. Such a sweet kid.

Ethan, I might be wrong, but I think it would be a little easier to hold on IF YOU WOULD PUT DOWN THE 5 CARS IN YOUR HANDS. Just sayin’…

We had so much fun with the little guy. He is seriously, the easiest kid in the world. Even made us think about having another baby…


(but I think we’ll just stick with loving on the nephew…can’t wait to hold and love on Carter’s baby bro or sis in a couple of months!) Winking smile


Oh- and I just HAVE to give a shout out to one of my BFF’s Liz! She came over- BY HERSELF – to babysit all of these kids while we went to a surprise birthday party for another BFF. (We trade off: Joe and I will let all of these dudes spend the night on a Friday night so Chris and Liz, and my bro and sis-in-law can go out on a date and actually sleep in on Saturday! Lord knows that the Steece house will always be wide awake by 6am anyway!)


Liz’s twin girls, my nephew Carter, and my quads…that’s 7 kids under the age of four that she had to put down for the night.

That bathtub picture might be the cutest thing I've ever seen in my entire LIFE. Oh my goodness!!!

Mommato2miracles said...

Been reading your blog since you were pregnant with the quads. I just wanted to say I appreciate and admire you so much, for your willingness and desire to allow God to lead your life. It is so hard sometimes to focus on the fact that God is in control when life seems so utterly crazy, and hten I come on over here, and think oh my goodness my life x4!!!! Wow, God is doing amazing things in that house, and I am so glad to learn from your experiences.

I love Sav's "You Warm My Heart" pj's, I bought them for a few little girls in my life because I couldn't walk out of ON without them!

Marty Rhea Hill said...

OK, Suz, so all the pics are precious but I have to say....that first pic of Andrew is priceless. His little smile is the cutest one I have ever seen.....which is saying a TON since I have my own little neices and nephews.

Love these pics.

I don't normally comment on blogs, but I have to say that bathtub pix should be in a contest and blown up for all to see. It is so amazing and they say a picture is worth a thousand words and the expression on those little faces are worth a million! LOVE IT!
