Life...

has been rather interesting around here this past week. What with everything surrounding Buddy, plus trying to get some things finished up before we get back to school next week, it's been crazy for me! Mostly, I've been trying to play more with Judah and Karah, since they often get left out when the others are playing games and such. Here are some pictures of us... :)



Karah loves holding Micah! Yes, I know I know...I said we don't use pacifiers, yet you nearly always see him with one in his mouth. That's because you nearly always see him in pictures where we were desperate for him to calm down without having to have Mama feed him (sheesh! He eats for an hour every time he eats, and he eats frequently! You'd think we never fed him.....) We only use it in extreme desperation though. ;)

Karah, Judah, and myself....We were cleaning up the blocks we'd been playing with....

The blocks Judah used to build his castle fort.

Judah and Karah....so cute together. :)

Me and Karah....Judah took this one. :)


I'll try to update again later....I've got to get ready to go to the library and post office!

Muffins anyone?

Yesterday afternoon, Sarah and I did some baking....muffins, to be exact. :) Sarah made banana, and I made chocolate chip... :D I don't like bananas, so I can't tell you whether they turned out any good or not, but I do love chocolate! :D


Sarah finished getting hers baked while I mixed the chocolate chip muffins
The Banana Muffins...
And the chocolate chip ones. :)
There was enough batter left over for me to make a small loaf of chocolate chip bread! :D
Our little froggy....when he's sleeping, he scrunches himself up and makes himself look like a little frog. :) So, Jeremy has nicknamed him our Little Froggy.

I didn't realize how long my hair has gotten! :D I still want it longer though
Mommy and Micah, on Sunday after church. :) I love Micah's expression! lol


I've got to go get the mail! :D

Crazy sisters? Definitely....

Last night, since Micah wasn't available to be held (he was having a 'snack'), Moriah and I had some time together...being crazy. Or, rather, she was being crazy, and I was trying to maintain some semblance of sane-ness....and failing miserably. ;) Anyhow....I let her go wild with the camera, so here's some of her pics:








Her and I....or the other way around. ;)








She took a picture of one of my drawings that I did a few years ago...I did this one of a cat when I was about 10, I think....She (my sis) has an interesting love of angles....







And this one I did when I was 12.....both were done at the art camp that I would go to every year, for about 5 years. :) My teacher was fantastic, and really helpful!

I was reading "Emma" off and on, and Moriah decided to take a picture of the ring that Cathy gave me when she was up here a few weeks ago....Since you can't really tell, the stone is red. :) She said her grandmother gave it to her years ago, but it's always been way too small for her fingers... :)

Apparently, my fan is fascinating as well.... I actually kind of like this one. :)


Of course, we did take some of Little Guy as well. ;)


He was laughing! :D

Aw.....

Let us make one point, that we meet each other with a smile, when it is difficult to smile. Smile at each other, make time for each other in your family.

*sigh*

:) Ever been sick of someone because they won't stop taking pictures? Well.....that's probably about how my Mom feels about me right now! lol It's not that I'm taking pictures of her.....but that I keep taking hundreds (as of right now, I think I've taken a collective total of about 1100 pics of my Little Guy and family.....though they all haven't turned out good, of course....the delete button has been used without abandon, I can assure you!) of pictures, and literally dash to get the camera when I get in the mood for taking a picture. :) I don't mind though....at least I'll never forget what he looks like! lol


My pretty sissy Moriah
A rare shot with his pacifier....we try not to encourage him using it, but sometimes.......
Mommy with Micah :D
Me with the kiddo.....
A BIG hug! :D

I think that hat is too big.....
This has got to be a record.....everyone in the picture is smiling! :D


I couldn't resist......Ever had a Layer Ice Cream Sandwich Cake?! (The Duggars have the recipe on their website) As soon as my Mom and I saw this on the Duggar's video, we both knew right away we'd make it eventually! :D Mom wanted to wait until after she had Micah, so she would be allowed to eat some, so yesterday, Moriah, Mom and I made one! :D It is SOOOOOOOOOO GOOOOODDDDD!!!!! Every one of us has named it our favorite cake....and Josiah has changed his birthday cake request from our favorite Possum Pie, to this cake! :D It is THE chocolate lovers' cake, without a doubt. I don't care if it's freezing outside when my birthday comes around, I will have this cake, and eat it too. :) Sorry to make you starving for chocolate goodness, but I just had to put a picture of it up. ;)

Argh......

For some reason, I'm not able to get the pictures off the hospitals' thing, so I'm posting these pictures instead. :) Apparently the link I sent out is giving people a hard time..... *mutters something about computers* :)


Sissy with Little Guy....

The other sissy with him. :) She is sooooo horrible....when she's holding him, we can't look at him, touch him, talk about him, and you'd better not even think about him either, or you'll get n earful from her! lol He likes her though....

He's too cute! :D


I managed to get one of him sleeping.....

There is a time for many words, and there is also a time for sleep.

Who wants to be behind the camera......

When you can be holding a handsome Little Guy like this? :)











Cherish all your happy moments:
they make a fine cushion for old age.

:D

I didn't finish putting the pictures up yesterday, so here's a few more....


Daddy with Little Guy

He's so cute!

I couldn't resist putting this one of Jeremy and him up. :D

Karah loves him to death!

Yesterday evening, Mom needed a break, so I rocked him to sleep for her. :D




He's not been sleeping very well, and Mom hasn't gotten much sleep either, so please pray that we can get him on a good schedule, so they can both get some rest!
