Eloise is 5 months old!

And my goodness is she into everything! Everything goes in her mouth and this kid loves to grab everything she can get her hands on. She hates to be left alone and is very vocal about it if she ever gets laid down by herself. I really hope Santa brings her a Jumperoo before I […]

Virginia Sings!

My little songbird just sings all the time. She loves it and often makes up her own songs. She is just 2.5 years old and can sing Twinkle Twinkle perfectly in tune.

Virginia my model

Virginia has been doing a wonderful job modelling clothes for sellers on etsy.com Some picured here are EmmiFaye, Dogwood Lane and Perry Finalia. Even Rani got to model a few! I love doing this. The sellers send me the outfits, I take the pics, and I get to keep the clothes for free!

Lulu 4 months old!

At her 4 month appointment Lulu weighed 13.bs 9 oz and was 23.5 inches long. She sat up for the first time on Halloween. I can’t believe I made her sit on the wet grass to do these. We were drenched by the time we were done.

Two Months

Little Eloise is already 2 months old! At her 2 month appointment she was 11lbs 15oz and 23 inches long. Her head circumference measured 38cms. She is a chubby little elf and I adore her! She is impatient only when she’s tired and she has quite the voice on her. Virginia’s cry was always so meek. […]

Six Weeks

I can’t believe I am at the six week mark again! I won’t grow sappy again like I did with Virginia. But I will admit that I am sad and I still hold that the newborn stage goes by too fast! It especially has with Lulu because she is getting so big so fast! Virginia was 9lbs […]

Catching Up- Again!

I simply cannot believe what has gone on around here in the last two months.  We have had hospital visits, surgeries and of course a birth of a new daughter. I think the simplest way to do an update on everyone is to give an update on each child separately. Xander- Now age 14, Xander […]

Catching up!

Wow, the last few weeks have been insanely busy for me! I feel like I haven’t even had time to breathe.  May 14th-15th Rani performed as a fairy attendant in Cinderella, a ballet presented by Mountainwest Ballet. She really had a wonderful time. Her dancing ability improved and she ate up being in the spot […]

A Perfect Mother’s Day

Every year I say or think about the fact that I hate Mother’s Day.  I always hope that sometime I will have a Mother’s Day free of fighting. I always hope to have  clean house and I always hope to have sweet children and a husband who pampers me and gives me gifts and serves […]
