Happy 3rd Birthday Kassidy, Kaydence, Rustin, Kyndall and Ryder!!!

It's official....the quints are now THREE years old! I can't believe it! What an amazing adventure the past three years have been! We have come so far, and yet I know that there is much more craziness yet to come. I feel truly blessed to be the mother to these five precious little ones (plus two others). They have brought out the best in me and in many others whose lives they have influenced.

Here are some pictures I took this morning. The outtakes were just as cute as the "real" pictures, so I thought I would include some of those as well :-)

Kassidy, "The Mother Hen". Kassidy likes to be in charge and make sure everything is going as it should. She is very opinionated (hmmm...I wonder where she got that trait????) and she likes to be a helper. I think she is going to be my shopping buddy when she grows up. Of all my kids, she is the most like me, both in looks and in personality.

Kaydence, "The Sweethart". Kaydence is super sweet as long as you don't cross her. She has the cutest little voice---when she talks to you in that voice it is hard to say no! Kaydence is the most content to play by herself and she is more of a follower than a leader. She is very detail oriented and can find the tiniest objects on the floor.

Rustin, "The Clown". Rustin is full of personality. He owns every bit of his red hair. He loves to cause trouble, but he always does it with a smile on his face. Of all the kids, he gets the most excited about things. He might be the first in line to steal some ones toy, but he is the biggest teddy bear. Rustin hates shoes and ditches his at the first opportunity.

Rustin Outtake (his is more cute than outtakish)

Kyndall, "The Spitfire". Kyndall is spunky and smart---a little too smart sometimes! She is as much of a troublemaker as Rustin, but in a different way---her misdeeds are much more clever. She loves to make me panic by hiding and not making a noise, while I run around the house looking everywhere for her. While Kassidy wants to be in charge, Kyndall is usually the one the others follow, maybe because she always looks like she is having fun.

Kyndall Outtake

Ryder, "The Charmer". Ryder continues to be my most high-maintenance child. He loves to be held and given a lot of attention. When he does get a lot of attention, he is as good as gold, but when he doesn' out! Ryder loves shoes--his or anyone elses. He even sleeps in his shoes.

I can't believe they are 3 already. It seems like yesterday that Tobi told me you were pregnant with quints. Happy Birthday kiddos.

Happy Birthday Quints!

You know, I still struggle to tell the difference between Kaydence and Kassidy in photos. They are so alike, and so much like Kaiya. I cannot believe they are 3.

It would be fun to have an update post on their heights, weights, likes, dislikes etc

Wow! Happy 3rd Birthday Kaydence, Kassidy, Kyndall, Ryder and Rustin :)

They are just sooo cute. And now they are already 3. Wow! Time's flying by too fast. And the little cuties are growing up so fast. Especially Kassidy looks so old, she is really tall isn't she?! ;)

I love to follow your blog, you and Jayson are doing such a great job. Congratulations to such a beautiful family. I wish you just the best.

Greetings from Germany

I was thinking about you and your little quints all day Saturday! I cannot believe they are 3!! Holy cow! Seems like just barely we were sitting in the cold hot tub at my parents trying to relieve some weight:) They are SO adorable I LOVE watching them all get older and have these fun awesome and totally unique personalities!

Matt and Mindy's youngest could be best buds with Rustin as shoes are not her friend either. I loved the personality descriptions of all the quints, they are just as I remember them at birth. You and Jayson continue to amaze us as do your children.

Happy Birthday to the quints and congrats to the parents and cool older brother and sister.
