Things that ONLY happen when you have mulitple children

So I am pretty sure these things only happen when you have more than one child.
1. McKinzie went to church with the bloomers stilled attached to the side of her dress and the tags still on them!!(greg got her dressed this sunday)and we didnt even notice till latter that afternoon after nap:)
2. You wake up at 9am and you were planning on attending 9am church, but think oh thats okay we will just go to the 11am service only to be 20 minutes late!!!
3. Wake up at 8:15 and the kids are to be at school in 5 minutes, the 2 youngest children are still sleeping, the 2 oldest arent dressed, no lunches packed and they go to school with no breakfast. In my defense, who thinks you will actually sleep till 8 when you have 4 little alarm clocks. Maybe things are changing at my house:)

A big thanks to luke for taking this awesome picture of my loves:)

Life with FOUR Children

This was one hour of pure torture, taking family pics with all the kids. McKinzie was a ball of energy running all over the place:) They actually had to take heads from other pics to make one good picture of all the kids. Oh how I hate taking pictures!!!!!!!!!!! There are just some things(like going out to eat with a toddler) that you just dont do at this stage. Thank goodness for grandparents so we are able to get out on dates. We went to Illinois for the day to visit gregs family. We had a great time and the kids just love playing with their cousins. We returned home to have dinner with my family and then christmas with my grandparents, aunts, and uncles from NW Iowa. It was so nice to see everyone, and catch up with everyones busy lives. Life with four children is actually wonderful. We are just loving Hudson so much. I think we are enjoying the newborn stage so much more this time since we know this will be the last baby Lybeck. We are just enjoying the craziness right now, and trying to soak it all in knowing it will pass by so fast.

He is here

Hudson Eugene Gregory Lybeck entered the world yesterday at 11:35. Greg and I actually got a date all day yesterday, my sweet doctor kept thinking a bed would open up and all these women kept coming in in actually labor. So they said come up at five when we got there they said give us five more minutes, then at six thirty we finally got a bed. She quickly broke my water so that I didn't have to give my bed up:) Around 11 things didnt seem to be progressing, then lori figured out he was face up. So she flipped him around and then he was out in seconds. It was funny b/c when just the head was hanging out greg thought it looked like a boy. We were so tired and didnt have a lot of time to look him over so thought we would just name him till today. He is so sleepy and sweet. They brought him to me once last night but he was only here for five minutes and then he didnt come back till nine am. We are a little worried about kinze keeping her hands off him:) I am looking for a crib to borrow for a little while, I need somewhere to keep him that kinzer cant get to him:) Thanks for all the thoughts and prayers. My dad is coming up tonight to take pictures and I will post them later. So long from the family of six!!!

Tommorow is the big day:)

So tommorow is the big day and I can't wait. I am ready to be done and have my body back. Walking is becoming such a chore- I guess when you have so many children and so close your ligaments loosen up and start to not work so well. My parents and gregs parents are each taking a night and a day with the children. I am really sad that they are unable to come up and see the new baby, but I think we are going to try and skype them. Chloe is the only one having a really hard time with it. So any guesses out there on sex and weight. I dont have any clue, but we are not set on a name for either sex, so this baby could yet again be nameless for awhile. We will post as soon as we know more news.
