Mornings with Harrison

Harrison has been such a good baby!  He's a great sleeper AND he's been so good during our busy early mornings.  Most mornings Harrison is up and awake while I get the older boys ready for school/the day.  He just hangs out in his car seat (so he's ready to go when we're ready to go) while I'm rushing around trying to get everyone fed, dressed, groomed, and out the door by 7:20 every morning.

But there's some mornings that there is no waking this boy up.  Mind you, he sleeps ALL NIGHT LONG already.  He goes to bed in the 8 o'clock hour every night and doesn't get up until I wake him up at 6am (95% of the time).  It's amazing!!  For all those that might read this and hate me and my sleeping baby a little, please know that my first two boys were TERRIBLE sleepers until they were about 8 or 9 months old, so I know sleepless nights, trust me.  Anyway, there are some mornings that he just won't wake for no matter what I do.  These mornings make me laugh!  I call him my Mr. Lazy Bones because the boy loves to sleep!

Here we are, 6am and it's time to wake up!
Harrison doesn't like this idea much...

Surely, a diaper change will wake him up.

Maybe not...?

Ok, if that didn't work then feeding him definitely will!

So the bottle is almost gone now, and he's still snoozing.
This baby has an impressive skill of sleeping while drinking an entire bottle!

Ok, ok, if changing his diaper and feeding him didn't work, then burping him will definitely do the job!

Apparently not.

Well, I might as well let the boy sleep.

He slept through getting in his car seat, the drive to take Jackson to school, and getting back home.
But just as I put his car seat down in the house, look what I see...
2 big blue eyes looking at me and a sweet little smile!

It's baaaaaaaaaack... The Nuffer Family Summer Camp 2018

Man, it's been awhile.  A long while.

The blog is baaaaaack! And so is the Nuffer Family Summer Camp!!!!!

The NFSC is going to be pretty different this year.  The big boys need to be challenged so much more than a few crafts and story books like when I first started the summer camp many moons ago.  With that said, I don't really know exactly what it will look like because I have to test the waters to see what interests them and what doesn't. My mom gave each of the boys a Little Passports membership, so we'll be using those in our weekly themes as well.  I have a preschooler, a second grader, and a fifth grader- needless to say, it should be interesting.  but no big deal, right?

Every day they'll spend their mornings doing some chores, spending some time outside, reading independantly, doing a little work in grade-level appropriate workbooks, doing an NFSC activity or two, and I think I'm going to teach the older boys to write in cursive. Phew!

Brian and Whitney get married!

Our family has been waiting for this day for well over a year!  My little brother, Brian, finally married Whitney a couple weeks ago.  Such a wonderful weekend!
I mean, how cute are they?!

The first night was the rehearsal, of course, but I didn't get many pictures.
I do have a fun little story, though...
Jackson was the ring bearer, and Whitney wanted him to walk arm and arm with the flower girl, Delaney.  But, he wouldn't do it.  I thought maybe it was because he didn't know her before that night, but no, that's way too simple for Jackson.  Jackson didn't want to walk down the aisle with Delaney because he thought if he walked down the (wedding) aisle with this stranger-girl, he'd be married to her!  bahahahahahahahaha!  That is hysterical!
Once we assured him that they would not be married if he walked arm and arm with this (super sweet) little girl, he was totally fine with it.
But look at their little faces.  And their little fists.  Hahahahaha!  This is t…

A Whole Lot of Random...

You guys know that my children are crazy.  And hilarious.  And random.
So here's a bunch of random moments from the Nuffer Nest.  Enjoy.
Sometimes, you just feel like Yoshi.

And sometimes, a tiny person steals my phone and takes 458 selfies that look just like this:

And sometimes, mom and grandma spend way too much time at Costco.

Other times, you smash your finger in a door and have to take a "quick" trip to urgent care. At least it wasn't broken.

And sometimes, life just gets hairy...

Other times, the Captain Underpants underwear you just got for your birthday has a cape, so you have to show it off by not wearing pants.

Sometimes, you're as cute as can be when you get a free apple at the grocery store.
(You guys, look at that little round belly- I just want to tickle and squeeze him!)

And sometimes, your brother helps you hang on when life gets tough.

Other times, they're there to give you a hug.

Sometimes, your future is so bright, you have to wear shades.
