Another little turkey

Lewis D. was born at 7:55a.m. on Monday, November 21st. He weighed 7 pounds 4 ounces and was 18 inches long. He has lots of blond hair and is a very pleasant baby.
I'm recovering well, although a bit overwhelmed with 4 kids. I can't believe it's been 2 weeks since I had him. Mentally, I'm ready to get back into my routine. However, since I had a c-section and am not getting a whole lot of sleep at night from a hungry little guy, I physically am not ready to.
The kids love the baby, and are always wanting to hold him. Joy has especially been a big help.
I'm going to try to send out a hard copy of a Christmas letter and family picture every now and then. If you've moved in the last 5 years and would like one, be sure to email me your address at

A month ago, baby Rogers made the doc and Ultrasound Tech think it was a girl. The picture wasn't very clear, but that's what they were leaning towards. So, we announced we were having a girl. I pulled out and sorted thru the girl clothes this last week, but didn't wash them yet. Then I had a doctor's appt yesterday and during the ultrasound the doc asked me if I wanted to know what it was. I told him he kind of already told me what it was. He then said, "It's obvious what this baby is! It's a BOY!"
He printed out 3 pics of the boy parts as if to emphasize it. Lucy was so disappointed when I told her on the phone after the appt that the baby wasn't a girl any more. She loves HIM anyways and was kissing my tummy today. For a month I've been all excited to dress up a little girl. I was relieved to know I wouldn't be having another boy, as the one I have now is incredibly busy. A friend of mine told me that she didn't think it could get any worse, and I agree that I don't think any boy could be busier than what Eli is. I'm glad my little guy will have a brother to play with though. My hubby has a lot of fun with his bros.

Baby Rogers #4 is......

INCREDIBLY MODEST!!! The baby moved too much last month for us to see what it was. Last Thursday, the baby wouldn't uncross its legs. Maybe next month....
So it's now 10:30 pm and Joy just used the bathroom, left the faucet running, turned off the kitchen light (the computer is in the kitchen), and laid down on the couch. I told her to turn off the water and she went into the bathroom and was looking at the light switch, kind of confused. I led her back to bed. This is the 2nd time in the last month that I know of that she slept walked. It's kind of crazy, but funny what she does at the same time!
For Christmas, our neighbors got their kids plasma cars. Eli loved riding them so much that he got one for his birthday. He got the biggest smile on his face when he saw his present. Yes, that is Dale riding Eli's car, while Eli is riding the neighbors'. Dale couldn't help trying it out when he found out the weight limit was 200 lbs! Eli got a big smile on his face when he saw Grandma Barbara, our neighbor down the street and one of his favorite people, at our house for his birthday party. I love that smile because he gets it from his daddy.

Lucy loves dolls. One thing I love about Lucy is that when she's tired, she doesn't fight it. She puts herself to bed...or falls asleep on the chair.

Love that smile! Eli enjoyed his birthday strawberry pie (we don't always do birthday cakes here).

All I want for my birthday is my two front teeth! I can't believe I have a 7 year old. She is so excited for next year when she gets to be baptized. She's already talking about the people she wants to invite to her baptism and party, and what she wants to eat! Her cousin was baptized last June, and Joy was extra excited to be baptized after that.

More Exciting News

Amanda forgot to mention one more piece of exciting news. We are expecting child number four this December. This probably is no surprise since we just bought a Yukon and all our children are spaced 2 and a half years apart.

We're still here! Exciting spring!

Hey ya'll! Just thought I'd put up a brief post about our goings on. We sold our beloved 1990 Ford Bronco and bought a 2003 Yukon XL in February. Joy turned 7 in March and Eli turned 2 in April (pics to be posted). As of Monday (two days ago), Dale is officially the new store manager at the Thatcher Home Depot. This was way exciting news to us. Last, but not least, Dale and I will be celebrating our 10th anniversary on May 11th. Wow! Ten years! Where does the time go? Hope everyone is doing great! We're gearing up for another hot Arizona summer. Take care everyone!
love, The Rogers
