I have really enjoyed being a spectator and watching them all interact with each other. I always assumed that Maren would be the most likely to "take the boys under her wing," but I have been pleasantly surprised to see Jacob taking on that role. All three of the kids love their new brothers, but Jacob has really attached to his new siblings, especially Evan. Jacob and Evan are sharing a room during nap times (I have to separate Jacob and Lukas or it is just one big party. . .and unfortunately they are generally not slumber parties) and I have walked past their room many times to hear them laughing and singing together.
Jacob, Lukas and Evan love playing "games" with each other. Head bonking and disgusting mouth noises are among their favorites. I just love seeing them laughing and playing together.
The following are some of the pictures I have snapped over the past week that capture some of their sweet moments together (ps- don't forget to click on the pictures to see larger versions). . .
Maren and Josh enjoying Maren's new doll house! This picture cracks me up!

I have done a series of posts this evening, so be sure to keep scrolling so you don't miss any of the action! I apologize for not updating sooner. After the abuse that my poor body has taken over the past few months, it finally decided to retaliate and I was hit with a nasty stomach virus the day after Christmas. Fortunately I was the only one to get sick, but it stuck around for quite awhile! Thankfully I am well again and finally starting to recover from all of the traveling and the stress of the past few months. I think knowing that I won't be flying half-way across the world again any time soon has definitely helped with the recovery process!
Wishing you all a happy and prosperous New Year!!!
