Happy 14th Birthday #3.5!

Today is #3.5's 14th birthday!

She loves giraffes. …

Seriously.. this is her with her giraffe in the backpack while she vacuums.

She makes us laugh all the time. (see the giraffe nails)

Before #3.5 was a 3.5 she was one of my girl scouts. I've known her since she was 8.  One time during a Girl Scout meeting, she was holding my hand and she looked up at me and said: "One day I'm going to live with you."  I laughed and said: "Maybe".. but I never thought it would really happen.  A chain of people making dumb decisions lead up to her living with us temporarily, and then one judge made a great decision and she lives with us permanently.  We LOVE HER beyond belief.

Happy Birthday 3.5! We love you and are so glad we are yours and you are ours!


** You may have noticed that yesterday was #3's 14th birthday.  They are 16 hours apart.  Pretty cool huh? 

Contemplating the Re-Numbering of the Children.. or just Typing Out loud

I've been thinking a lot lately about re-numbering my kids.  If you've read my blog for very long you'll know that I don't give my children's names out.. I just refer to them by number.  You know…

#2 (in blue) #1 (in red), #3 holding #6, #3.5 and the 2 little boys in front #4 in blue and #5 in green. They are numbered by age.. or birth order.  

Most people don't know it but #3 and #3.5 are only 16 hours apart.  They've been the best of friends since 2nd grade. I didn't give birth to  #3.5  but I love her just like did.  When she came to live with us in 2011, I only thought she would be here a month or two.. we feel so fortunate and blessed that she is with us permanently. In January The Man and I became Miss #3.5's legal guardians.

I've been thinking about re-numbering the monkeys.. and if I do it by birth order #3.5 should be #4 and so on. That would mean I would need to change the numbers of the 3 youngest boys. I'm not sure that they would care… or maybe they would.  Maybe #3.5 just wants to be 3.5 and not a whole number.  I could always give #3.5 the number of #7.. but then it would screw up the whole birth order thing.    What do you think?

The Many Faces of 3.5

Here are a few of the faces of 3.5…




Wait, you are putting this on your blog?

Did they just say a degu is out?

(really.. that's what just happened when this picture was taken.  Don't worry the degu was caught.)

Wrapping It All Up.. Halloween & Who is 3.5?

I realized today that I had not properly introduced our newest family member AND I had not shown the monkey's dressed up for Halloween! 

Here's to killing 2 birds with 1 stone! (eww.. now that I wrote that, it sounds horrible.. but you get what I mean.  RIght?)

#4 in his Green Lantern Costume

#5.. I mean Darth Vader.. Nice Cat n the Hat Converse 🙂

#3.5 and #3

A month or so ago #3.5 came to live with us.  She and #3 have been friends since 1st grade, and #3 is sixteen HOURS older than #3.5.. which is how she got her number 🙂

You might be wondering what they were for Halloween. They have their own YouTube Show called "The Rita Show".  #3.5 is Rita, and #3 is an extra in the show.

Really.. it's pretty funny.

Welcome to the family you cute little muffin!

Now you know who #3.5 is.. AND what was worn on Halloween.  My work here is done. 🙂
