Miss Calleigh

You are 9 Months old!

  • You crawl really well. 
  • You can cruise around furniture and push your toys, so I know you will walk soon. 
  • You still have no teeth! 
  • Your favorite toy is a Busy block. 
  • Your favorite way to sleep is on your belly with your butt in the air. 
  • You can say mama and dada, and you have "names" for your sisters too. 
  • You weigh 13 lbs and are 27.5 inches long. 
  • You are finally getting hair back, and its a dirty blonde color. 
  • You still have blue eyes. 
  • You are transitioning to your crib in your room and its going ok. 
  • You love Baby Mum Mum treats! 
  • Your favorite veggie is green beans, but not pureed.  You gum them whole. 
  • Your favorite fruit is apples.  You love them baked. 
  • You just found a love for yogurt this week! I hope it continues. 
  • To go to bed at night, after nursing, you need your binky and your cuski. It is adorable. 

Happy 9 months baby girl.

Spent our Sunday afternoon in the garden.

We planted some more things.  Now we have 6 tomato plants, 2 cherry, 3 supersonic, and 1 roma.   2 pepper plants (the 6 the girls did, didn't sprout at all, so no use in planting them).  We also have some broccoli and cucumbers. 

We picked up some berries at Lowe's on clearance.  Hoping they grow.  We got 1 each strawberry, blueberry, blackberry and raspberry. 

We also got some shrubbery to plant around the yard.  It looks good.

Color me Crazy

Most days I'd agree with you!

But I'm actually planning Calleigh's bday party. Yes that's right. The little one who is only 8 months old.

So far, I've got the invites planned, I'm making them, so I need to start soon! FUN FUN! I've got decor/ theme planned.

And I'm working on gifts. I have one more I need to buy supplies for.

A Benefit


Next week, May 14th, is the start of the benefit for Stephanie. Stephanie is a friend I met on a forum years ago. We're all pretty close. Stephanie had her world turned apart due to a medical issue recently and we're having a benefit auction in her honor.

You can read more information about the problems here and be sure to join us all at Western Sky Knits for the auctions. A little bit of everything from diapers to clothes, to quilts. If you see something you like, why not make a bid, the proceeds are going to a wonderful cause.

Praying for you daily Stephanie and Noah.

What it means to be a mother.

To me.

Defining motherhood is hard. everyone is different.

Mother hood is rocking your baby to sleep after nursing.

Motherhood is... calming your child's fears in rough times.

Motherhood is ... Nourishing your child. Both physically and spiritually.

Motherhood is... Making sure baby feels safe, protected, and loved.

Motherhood is... Catching shots of your child(ren) in embarrisng situations to share with others when they are older.

Motherhood is........ the reward of seeing your children become best friends.

Motherhood is realizing that sometimes the not-so-perfect pictures are the most treasured. They have a better story.

Motherhood is the JOY of children in the simple things.

Motherhood is boobies, and ouchies, and kisses, and "Nurse-maid"ing and everything in between.

Motherhood is seeing your baby for the first time.....

Motherhood is watching your belly grow -- and filling with more love as it expands.

Motherhood is knowing when to let go. And let your child show off thier newfound freedoms (and abilities)

Motherhood is all these things and MORE.  Motherhood is CRAZY and I wouldn't have it any other way

What do you think Motherhood is?  Share with us and don't forget to link up at We are THAT family for a chance to win!

I am in mourning.

Today. My sweet girl decided she needed a change.

And this is what I found in my office after I got off the phone.



Now my sweet little girl kinda looks like Joe Dirt.


Tackle It Tuesday post thwarted.

I was going to come in here and post a wonderful tackle and how good my kitchen now looks.

Unfortunately, I'm currently in a state of emotional distress.

I'll make a post shortly while sobbing with the details.

We had a super stormy weekend.

And DH was away! So that made it a little tough.

But in the end, I just let the girls curl up with me on the couch bed.

Three kidlets take up so MUCH room.
