We’re Moving

Yes, it’s true.  Our crazy adventurous family is moving once again.  Last week, Chad was offered a job in Colorado.  We’ll be there in two weeks!  I don’t think it’s hit me quite yet.  And I have many mixed emotions.  
I’m excited for my husband who received a great position that will allow me to continue to stay home with Baby C.  I’m looking forward to the many different adventures my family will share.  I’m pumped about having 4 seasons again.  And I have a good feeling in my heart that this is the right move for us.
I’m sad to leave my family and friends behind.  I wish I could pack them all up in my suitcase and take them with me.  They have been my rock and support system these past couple of crazy years.  From getting married and Chad going to Iraq for a year, to getting pregnant and then Baby C and I recovering.  I couldn’t imagine making it through without them.  I hope our roller coaster ride will slow down after this big move.  
Will you pray for our family as we make our move?  That God will provide us with exactly what we need at the right time.  That we may find a home and friends and that He protects us from all harm.



P.S. Any advise on good doctors and things Baby C will need in the cold weather?

Whose Your Daddy?

My Daddy makes my bed and tucks me in at night

My Daddy snuggles me in his loving arms

My Daddy knows how to makes me smile and laugh

My Daddy gives the best rides

My Daddy has taught me ways to have fun

My Daddy lets me fall asleep in his arms

A LITTLE GIRL NEEDS HER DADDY

A little girl needs Daddy
For many, many things:
Like holding her high off the ground
Where the sunlight sings!
Like being the deep music
That tells her all is right
When she awakens frantic with
The terrors of the night.

Like being the great mountain
That rises in her heart
And shows her how she might get home
When all else falls apart.

Like giving her the love
That is her sea and air,
So diving deep or soaring high
She’ll always find him there.

Thanks for being a rockin’ Daddy!



Happy Daddy’s Day!
I love you!


Baby C


Daddy’s Girl


Six Months Old

Baby C turned six months old this past weekend.
She loves the camera

Her personality is starting to shine.
She is slowly growing more hair.
She has yet to sprout teeth, but is in the teething stage.
Baby C is rolling over both ways.
She really wants to crawl, but just doesn’t get it yet.
She occasionally sits up on her own for a few seconds.
And she’s been eating homemade applesauce.
Baby C loves her family, especially her cousins (They really know how to make her laugh).
She will repeat after me when I say, “Ahhh!”
Lately, she’s been sleeping through the night, or just getting up once to eat.
Happy Half Birthday Baby C!  

Splish Splash! She Was Taking A Bath!

I used to take Baby C in the shower with me.  It was easier for me that way.  But after a while, Baby C wasn’t having it anymore.
For the past few weeks, I gave her a bath in her own bathtub.  I’m not sure if she likes to get clean this way either.  What do you think?
She seemed happier once I dried her off.

What is your kid’s bath time routine like?
