Cousins, cousins, cousins!

It is amazing! The birth rate in David's family has spontaneously quadrupled in the last few years! First came Isaac, then along came Willow, then Brayden and two more arriving soon. Our last visit to Florida was so enjoyable because the little ones now have personalities and can play together. Although with the arrival of teeth, we must watch closely! Especially when Willow tries to feed Isaac....
Or when Brayden looks on with envy because he can't eat Cheerios yet....
But, we managed not to loose any fingers or toes, and to have a fun time together! I imagine these three will be buddies for life! I can only imagine 5 years from now when they start kindergarten....

And a definite photo-op for the family... if only we could manage to get them all looking in one direction... or even all smiling!

All I want for Christmas...

This should be Layla's theme song! She finally lost her first tooth... and boy was it eventful. I was at work and got a call from David. I was in the middle of something, so I didn't get the full story. Upon leaving work and calling home to see what was going on, he exclaimed that Layla was hyperventilating and laying down. She begged him to pull out her tooth, claiming that it was very loose. It wasn't! He pulled and it hurt and blood started pouring. Needless to say, she was screaming and having a panic attack. David got concerned because of how she was acting and finally made her go lay down before she passed out. When I got home she showed me the tooth that was dangling in her mouth. After a little while, I took her into our room and asked her if I could dry it off with the paper towel, thinking to myself that I was going to try to see how loose it really was. Let's just say that the root on this thing looked extremely scary! So, upon inspecting it and hearing her lecture me about how it was going to hurt and not to be too rough, I dried and did a little tug to see what would happen. And lo and behold, the tooth just came right out. She didn't know, she was still telling me what to do and what not to do! I showed her the tooth and she let out a scream. And then I hear David in the living room saying "I told you, she won't let you pull it." So of course, I had to reply that it was a scream of shock that it was over and didn't really hurt. He's still mad that he did all the work and I got all the glory!

And the Tooth Fairy came to visit her... and let's just say that the Tooth Fairy that comes to our house must not be the same that visits other little children in our small town. Because last year Layla exclaimed how rich the Tooth Fairy was in Reidsville because she brought Madison $20.00! Yeah, that Tooth Fairy might be rich, but she must not have our address!

Long time... no post!

My blogging skills have vanished, my creativity flew through the window and my energy went down the drain!

So, here is my attempt to recapture my blog!

It has been a busy month in the Tucker household. I will attempt to recreate some of our memories, in separate posts as to not remove the importance of each individual event.
