Updates on the Murphy's

Wow, where to start?? Well we did find out that we are having a baby 2 girls and 2 boys, awesome!! Phoebe is so very excited for her new sister.

In June we took a 2 week excursion to Oklahoma and then to Houston, back to Oklahoma and then all the way back home. We stayed in Oklahoma a few days and saw family and friends then drove to Houston to see Denzil's family. Now we had only lived in Colorado for a year when we took this trip but we thought we were going to die from the hot weather in Oklahoma. When we went to Houston it was so much worse and we really don't know how people live there, or how we lived there for that matter. OH MY was really hot!! Talk about needing a shower at night and in the morning! We stayed in Houston for a few days and then drove back to Oklahoma. Unfortuntely we were involed in an accident in Houston. Some lady rear ended us when we were trying to turn left. It was almost $5000 damage to my van but it has majorly messed up mine and Denzil's backs. Him more than me but some days mines pretty bad. He's had 2 epidural steriod injections in his back in the last 2 months but neither one of them have came with any relief. I thank God that the kids weren't hurt at all but Phoebe still talks about the mean lady in Texas that hit our car. And I pray that when I have this baby that the back pain goes away!! It took Fin a few weeks to stop jumping and screaming and crying at load noises, which was horribly sad but at least he got over it. We had a great time seeing all our family and friends in Oklahoma and Texas!!

Our summer has ended and we had a good one! We went swimming a lot, more than I thought we would, went to the zoo, took a 2 week vacation, played outside a lot, went to parks, had picnics, etc. On to a new chapter and new routine, Phoebe started school in August. She's so adorable and loves school so much. She's doing great. Eliott will start school on his birthday in October because he has to be 3 in order to start but he's also doing great. Talking a lot more but no luck in potty training the stubborn kid. I'm waiting for him to just get it one day and I'm hoping it's before the baby gets here. Fin is getting big and he has such an awesome personality...Happy. We call him smiley a lot because he is just smiling all the time. I can't wait to see how different this one in my belly will be.

Just found out that all three kiddos will have to have surgery on their herniated belly buttons. I thought that at least Eliott's had grown back together but there's still a little hole there. Only 5% of the popluation have herniated belly buttons that don't grow together and all 3 of ours have them! Wow. What's the likliness that our 4th will have it too?? Fin's is so bad, a lot worse than Phoebe or Eliott's ever was, they are going to go ahead and do his. So next Friday we'll be at the hospital at 5:30 am to check in and then surgeries start at 7:30. We'll get all of them knocked out at once. Pray that they go well, the kids do great and the parents will survive too!!

I also failed my 1 hour glucose test to test for gestanational diabetes so I had to go on Saturday for a 3 hour test. They took my blood 4 times in 3 hours, yuck! It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be but drinking that nasty orange stuff just ruined my appetite for the rest of the day and made me feel yuck! Haven't gotten the results yet but should tomorrow.
Well it's bedtime now just wanted to give an update since I haven't blogged in so long.

A Newborn's Conversation with God

My mom sent this email to me and I loved it so much I had to share...

A baby asked God, "They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?"
God said, "Your angel will be waiting for you and will take care of you."
The child further inquired, "But tell me, here in heaven I don't have to do anything but sing and smile to be happy."
God said, "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you. And you will feel your angel's love and be very happy."
Again the small child asked, "And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me if I don't know the language?"
God said, "Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak."
"And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?"
God said, "Your angel will place your hands together and will teach you how to pray."
"Who will protect me?"
God said, "Your angel will defend you even if it means risking its life."
"But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore."
God said, "Your angel will always talk to you about Me and will teach you the way to come back to Me, even though I will always be next to you."
At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from Earth could be heard and the child hurriedly asked, "God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel's name."
God said, You will simply call her, "Mom."

I think I will print this out and read it everyday. I'm supposed to be my children's angel...WOW, that's incredible. I'm supposed to be working for/with God to raise these kids but it's hard to do in everyday life and with them not listening, getting frustrated with them, having to clean the house, cook breakfast, lunch, dinner, keep up with laundry, it's hard to remember that and do that in the little things that we do daily. But I pray that He shows me those times that I can teach them about Him and mold them into Godly people. Thank you God for the 3 (almost 4) little gifts Denzil and I have from you and thank you for asigning me the job of their "angel"!!

Been a long time!

Wow, it's been a long time...since I've posted and since I've been sick with the wonderful morning sickness that I am so lucky to get. I hate it when I meet these women that say..."oh wow, that never happened to me, I never got sick." I just want to scream at them because they have no idea how it feels to throw up all the time...and still take care of 3 kids!!
I'm finally feeling better these days but I really don't want to talk about that because everytime I say that then I throw up again, so let's not get on that subject.
A lot has happened since my last post...piling up laundry, dishes, lots and lots of naps for mom, and school came to an end.
I am now 14 weeks pregnant and my second doctors appt is tomorrow and I'm going with no kids!! YEAH!! I am going to drive all the way there with my radio, I still have radio in my car and not a DVD playing in my ear that I can't watch!! Their teacher, Ms. Jesse, is going to watch them for me and she has a little 2 year old boy so they should have lots of fun.
Phoebe & Eliott get to go to preschool next year for free and I am so looking forward to that one!! Phoebe will go 4 days a week 8:30 to 12:30 and Eliott will go 3 days a week, same time, just a different class.
In the last 2 weeks we've had Mother's day, Phoebe's 4th birthday, and Fin's 1st birthday. I totally can't believe Phoebe's 4 and Fin's's crazy!! We had a party for Phoebe and invited 4 little girls that she knows (and a couple of their brothers!) and they had a great time playing outside, eating cake, and then playing with all her new barbies. And all the girls going into Phoebe's room and locking all the "boys" out!! She's actually made a sign to put on her door that has a picture of a boy and says "No boys allowed, except for Daddy!" Of course I had to help her but she told me exactly what to write/draw and where to put it on the paper. Then she got the tape and went and taped it on the outside of her door. Other than that Phoebe's doing great! She is so smart and amazes us all the time with things she says. She's so motherly and such a great big sister. She's so excited about having a baby sister and that makes me kind of nervous...she's going to be very disappointed if it's not a baby sister!! She keeps saying "this is my room and my baby sister's." So let's hope we find out it's a girl in July!
This last Sunday for Memorial day we tried to go to the Denver Zoo but that was a joke...out of all their 5 million parking places, we could not find one, and we drove around for over 45 minutes. So we left there and went to the Aquarium, where we had never been before. That was really cool, we really liked that and I thought it was awesome to see the 2 tigers that they have in there.
Eliott is doing good but he continues to be a challenge. We love him anyway though and he's an awesome boy. His speech thearpist thought he should be evaluated by an occupational thearpist, so she came out and did an evaluation on him and asked him 500 questions and we found out he has problems with his proproceptive input. Which means that why he falls all the time or runs into walls, etc. I just blew that off as a boy thing or just clumsy but it's an actual problem that he has not knowing where his body is at in space...really weird!! So she's coming twice a month to work with him and showing us how to get that input in his joints/bones that he needs...really interesting stuff and she's got some really cool ideas! He has such a temper and has started throwing stuff, hard stuff when he's mad which then creates a total problem, of course so we're trying to figure out which discipline is working best for this 2 year old boy and it's frustrating.
We're still loving Colorado and love this during the day and cool at night...Love it!! Our street is filling up and we have some great neighbors on our street and a total of 22 kids on our street of about 15 houses and I think 3 of those houses don't have any kids. Haven't met them all yet, it's been a slow process but the ones that we have met seem great. And Phoebe loves the little girl across the street, Marley!! I'm so glad we moved to a street where there are so many kids for our kids to play with.
Well I know I haven't included a bunch of stuff but thought I would just update to say we're still alive and doing good!
Until next time-

Announcement of #4!!

Yeah that's right...I can't believe I'm typing this but we're expecting #4. I am only 7 weeks along and due date is November 21, my little brother's birthday!! Here's a pic of the new little baby...

It's a wooping 7 mm big!! I don't see how something so little growing in me makes me feel so bad all day. And let's hope it's a girl because if it's not Phoebe will be a little upset. She keeps saying "it's my baby" and referring to the baby as "my little sister". So in November we'll have Phoebe, 4, Eliott, 3, Fineas, 1, and a brand new baby, four 4 and under!!

Here's some cute new pictures of Fin:

And here's these two ornery boys...they both emptied a whole container of snacks on the floor and were crushing them-

Stayed tuned for more updates and more pictures on the kiddos!!

Phoebe going on 16

Well last night when I put Phoebe to bed, I was trying to leave her room and here's our conversation...
"Mommy, wait...I have one more question to ask you before I go to bed"
"Okay...what is it?"
"Ummmm....ummmm...tomorrow morning when I wake you think I could go to Wal-Mart by myself"
Okay so how in the world am I suppose to react to this one?? I'm kind of in shock and standing there trying to think of something to say and before I think of something she says...
"Like drive your car and go to Wal-Mart by myself"
" honey, you can't drive mommy's car and it wouldn't be very safe for you to go to Wal-Mart all by yourself."
Wow, my 3 1/2 year old is already asking to drive my car...Bad sign!!

Fin's growing up so fast. He's saying Mama, Dada and he's trying to repeat stuff that Phoebe & Eliott say. He's said Map while the kids are watching Dora and it's so funny! He has successfully skipped baby food and has just went straight to real food. He's only 10 months and eating everything we eat and loves it!

Well I'm so very tired and ready to go to bed...lets hope Fin starts sleeping through the night. Last night was the first night we put him in Eliott's room so now they are officially sharing a room!
