mysteries of motherhood The little socks always lose their pairs, I swear there’s a sock fairy that come and takes them. Kids will gobble up something one day and then decide it’s disgusting the next day, what’s up with that? Okay, your diaper is leaking poop…but the carpet is brown… I used to have like… Continue reading Thursday Thirteen #12
Hook, Line and Sinker
How Brent and I began Brent and I didn’t have sparks the first time we met. In fact, I don’t remember how we met exactly but I know it involved a picnic table. It was my first year of Bible College, I had come and left my boyfriend (Nathan), who I had every intention of… Continue reading Hook, Line and Sinker
Sometimes I Don’t Feel Like Making A Title.
Every time I sit down here I draw a blank about what I had been planning to write about so I just blab and blab and blab with no direction. I wish I could remember because I’m not finding anything to blab about either. Hmmmmmm. Ikey’s nursing wacky again (I just remembered what I was… Continue reading Sometimes I Don’t Feel Like Making A Title.
I Love Silas
Oh my darling Silas, he’s growing farther and farther away from my womb. It’s a strange feeling to see him becoming his own person. I delight in watching him grow and change and learn. I’m really seeing how much he isn’t my own but he’s in fact his own. What a blessing it is to… Continue reading I Love Silas
Happy Birthday Isaac!!
Ikey is three months old today. Man I wish I had a birthday every month. That’d be so cool. So now I guess I fill you in on all things Ikey. Right now he’s sitting in his bouncy chair in a stripped onsie that his cousin Cornelius wore 10 years ago. The bouncy chair almost… Continue reading Happy Birthday Isaac!!
Thirteen Things I Love About My Husband
Thirteen Things about Me 1. He’s the owner of a pair of amazing blue eyes. I don’t think I’ve ever enjoyed looking into any eyes so terribly much as his. 2. He took on the roll of being a father like he had always been one. He loves our boys so much and watching him… Continue reading Thirteen Things I Love About My Husband
I Do It
Wow, a vocabulary breakthrough has happened this morning. Silas just put his own sentence together using his own understanding of the English language. He said “I do it” when he wanted to feed himself. Everything is covered in oatmeal as a result. I’m so happy that he’s starting to use sentences. So exciting. Yesterday he… Continue reading I Do It
Little Ball of Sunshine.
I swear my son is a little ball of sunshine and he’ll forever light up a room when he walks in. I know I complain a lot about his short temper but when he’s not tantruming he really is this little ball of sunshine and he’s constantly making me smile…or pine for his delicious lips… Continue reading Little Ball of Sunshine.
A Better Morning
Silas kinda made up for his early morning rising this morning. I’m waking up at around 6 now just because I’m getting used to it…grrrr. Silas woke up about 6:20 but he was actually happy and talking to himself so I just left him until he wasn’t happy. I tried to give him toys but… Continue reading A Better Morning
Husband to the Rescue
You know what? Mini-wheats are incredibly filling. I go through Mini-wheat phases because they really help keep me regular but I do get sick of them. I’m going through a phase now though, I’m always so amazed by how full they keep me. I just thought I’d let you all know that. My husband saved… Continue reading Husband to the Rescue
Teething Never Ends
My darling Silas is starting to have a hard time again with his teethies. At least we had a few weeks of really happy baby. The poor kiddo, I can’t believe he’s cut 8 teeth since Christmas, the two molars are hardly cut and the other two are starting to get a bit white on… Continue reading Teething Never Ends
16 Months Old
I just realized that Silas is now 16 months old. Oh to have a birthday every month, I guess we’ve all been through it though. I can’t believe the changes that happen from month to month. This past month his vocabulary has really taken off. He’s learned up, down, shower, water, food, hungry, nose, eyes,… Continue reading 16 Months Old
What I Love About You
My darling Silas, I’ve known you for almost 16 months and I must say, you’ve impacted my life in a way no one else has. You turned my world upside-down and I wouldn’t have it any other way. You’ve shown me that I’m not as selfish as I thought I was and that I can… Continue reading What I Love About You
Hug a Chiropractor
I love my chiropractor! Not in a romantical way of course, just in a “you fixed my body and I love you” way. It’s taken two visits and I’m almost completely fixed of my sciatic and back problems. I still have some hip pain but that’s just my arthritis dealing with my joints being loose… Continue reading Hug a Chiropractor
A Good Mood Day
Silas has been in SUCH a good mood so far today. I don’t know what to do with it. I keep thinking I’m going to jinx it somehow! There wasn’t any fussing or hanging or whining or smashing of faces on the floor. It’s been a lovely morning, perhaps it’s because the sun is actually… Continue reading A Good Mood Day
