Latest Happenings

So... how you been? We've just been dandy! Very busy but we're doing great. A few updates through pics.....

 This is what happens when you have big sisters!

 Judah boy is getting big! He's 8-months-old now!

Mommy finally got a hair cut! And yes that is a nose ring, not a funky mole. 

Elaina's last day of first grade and last day of public-charter school. I cried! Homeschooling is still the right choice but it wasn't an easy choice.

My sweet little model showing off one of my necklaces that I sell in my Etsy shop. 

Judah ate a banana just a couple days ago and made a big old mess! He's a blond with dimples - what's not to love?! 

After the bananas we took a bath in the sink! This face reminds me of a baby pic I have of myself!

 Happy 7th Birthday to my oldest baby, Elaina!

Elaina got an American Girl doll and she named her Bella (and no, we do not watch nor read Twilight; my daughter doesn't even know what that is). My mom-in-law made the clothes!

Some of the grandkids waiting for pizza for Elaina's birthday! Zoe and her little cousin on the left crack me up - each cousin has a bestie the same age (Abigail's cousin buddy didn't want to take a pic at the time!).

Don't forget me over here, Ma! 

Taking a break these next couple weeks from my online business. I've been so busy I am going nonstop from the moment I wake up until the moment I go to sleep in the wee morning hours (it's 1:35AM right now). I don't know how I'm going to juggle homeschooling on top of all of this but we'll get there. Just a bit of adjusting in our schedules and we should be golden.

Judah facts - Judah has been crawling for over a month. He's starting to pull up a little but not standing unless I'm holding his hands. He says "Mom-Mom" a lot. He just started clapping yesterday! He's been waving for awhile now, too. He's losing his rolls from all the crawling he's been doing and he's been sleeping through the night so no more nursing in the middle of the night.

I have started putting him in his bed at night. I've been afraid he'll roll out of our bed. And we're all more comfortable I think. The hardest part is getting him to go to sleep but once he is out he doesn't wake up at night, yay! The last few mornings he has woken up happy and talking to himself (before then he'd wake up scared).

I can't believe in less than four months we'll be celebrating his first birthday!

Judah is all grown up!
I cannot believe how the girls have grown over the YEARS of reading your blog!
Homeschooling is lots of work and lots of fun. I'm thankful for our flexibility, but sometimes it scares me too!

You look pretty! Inspiring me to get after my own mommy make over...or at least a little perk me up!
