Amy's Determination

I knew Amy was still breast feeding the twins, but there is something I didn't know until just a few days ago. For the past 8 months she has her alarm set for 4am. She gets up every morning at that time and pumps her milk. There is something about that time of the night that helps her have more milk for later on in the day. (btw, she gave me permission to write this)

8 months doing this. Not to mention then going back to sleep only to get up a couple hours later to the needs of 7 children.

I asked her HOW can she do this day after day, month after month. She said, "I'm like Logan. When I really want something, I can put my mind to it and accomplish it."

What a Mom!

So proud to find the dog dish!

Oh Jill, You have such a varity of subjects. We love seeing these little guys. Our observation of Amy is that she IS an amazing mom. So is Erin! Both tested by fire in their own way, but survivors as are you. You are all remarkable. Dad and Susan

I agree, I have very amazing daughters in law. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would get this lucky! I sleep well at night knowing my grandchildren have such good mothers.

I had to watch the video twice! They are so cute!
I called Ray over to see it too, he and I both said it really makes us miss having little babies around the house! Just adorable!

And I agree with you about your daughters-in-law being great Moms, and I think your sons are terrific too!

Enjoy your beautiful family!
All the best,

These babies keep getting cuter and cuter. I hope I get to see them when I come down for Christmas, and all of Ashley's events.

Amy is amazing. I got tired just reading about what she does.

First of all Amy is quite the woman and mother to do all that she does and starting at that time of the morning!!! I love the pictures of Jonas and Téa, especially the one of Jonas staring at himself in the mirror and the one of Téa where you can see her bottom teeth. Cute, cute, cute!! Thanks for sharing!

Amy really is one of the most amazing mothers I have ever seen. She always seems to have everything under control. She is a joy to be with!
