Catching Up

It has been a busy few weeks in the Mango household, so I'm a bit behind in posting some important events!

First of all, our little Ruby turned 2 at the end of October!

Birthday Girl!

Blowing out the candle.

Hooray for Cake!

Opening some presents.

Baby Ean, 8 days before his arrival! Please ignore the dark circles around my eyes and lack of make-up! Focus your attention instead on Ruby! She already loved to give her baby brother kisses! :)


Next came Halloween. It seems so long ago!

Or maybe that is just because we're out of all the "good" candy already?

Ethan was Darth Vader again, cousin Isaiah was a pirate, Kibby was a princess, and Ruby was... well, we weren't sure. I got the costume at a used children's clothing store, and at first I thought it was a bunny, but we're now thinking it's really a lamb. What do you think? Either way, I think it's way adorable on her!

Lamb or bunny?


Next up is some more recent pictures of Ean. Ean with his siblings, Ean by himself, Ean being held, Ean crying... you get the idea. :)

With his sisters.

Hungry enough to eat his own arm!

Ruby just can't get enough of him.

I may never get a nice picture of all 4 kids... Someone is always bound to have their thumb in their mouth or not be looking this way... I'll keep trying, though! My blog header needs a new photo, for one thing!

We have a hard time keeping Ruby's hands off Ean. Not for lack of trying. We are constantly reminding her! Hands off, please! Well, off his face and hands, at least. Since it's flu season and all, you know...

He's always hungry! :) Here he is trying to eat the pillow!

Not happy, but look how strong he is! Holding himself up.

Until next time!

One Week

Ean is already one week old. Wow. Actually, he was a week old yesterday, but I didn't have time to put up a post then. I don't really have time now, either, but wanted to post a picture or two.

Or five. :)

So tiny!

Look Mom! A smile!

Sleeping on Mommy.

Listening to Ethan talk to him.

First shot of all four kids together. Of course Ean wasn't looking, Ruby's clothes have water dripped on them, and Kibby is displaying her newly-found wacky fashion sense... but I couldn't take another at the time because my memory card was full! I do think it accurately conveys how crazy life is right now, though, so it's definitely a keeper! :)

Drumroll, please.....

Baby Mango has arrived!

The Details:

Ean Royal Keo (yes, he has 2 middle names, after 2 of his great-grandfathers) arrived on November 3rd at 5:27 AM. 8 lbs, 13 oz and 20.25 inches long. (A big boy compared to his siblings!)

Everyone is home and doing well!

More to come later! As you all can imagine, things are a little crazy around here right now, but I wanted to get an announcement posted! :)
