Growing, Growing.....


Mary took this picture on my phone camera. I love it! He was around 8 weeks.
Another favorite! He has become a sweet, content baby lately. He was a bit fussy his first month or so. It is so sweet to watch him kick and kick, smile so brightly, and laugh out loud! I just love to watch him grow and change, even while it makes me sad to see my newborn disappear.

Reading Preparation

3 year old Jude loves to "read" Kate's books. Some have a few pictures in them, but very few, so it is interesting that he will study them for quite some time. Another reader on the way!!
Jack wants to be sure you notice the "feline" lurking in the background. Posted by Picasa

A Lovely Quote

To live content with small means;

to seek elegance rather than luxury,

and refinement rather than fashion;

to be worthy, not respectable,

and wealthy, not rich;

to study hard, think quietly,

talk gently, act frankly;

to listen to stars and birds,

to babes and sages, with open heart;

to bear all cheerfully,

do all bravely,

await occasions, hurry never.

In a word,

to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious,

grow up through the common.

This is to be my symphony.


William Henry Channing
1810-1884

Milestones

My sweet girl is growing up. She had been wiggling and jiggling this little tooth for weeks. What excitement when it finally came out! I'll post another soon of her in her current state of minus 4 teeth!

Catching Up

Sweet baby boy at 6 weeks old. He is a marvelous sleeper at night, but not such a great napper. More of a cat napper. Ugg. But we are working on it! At least I am well rested to deal with it, right?!
He was 12 # 14 oz at 6 weeks. Just starting to smile in response to us. It has been hard to capture in pictures though. So sweet!



Is this one of the biggest swaddled babies you have ever seen? I tell you, he loves it! It still amazes me every time I watch his response to swaddling him when he is starting to fuss and want to sleep. You can just watch him relax. So sweet. Thought I better take a picture of him in the Moses basket for the last time! Growing like crazy.
