8 months

Where does the time go?

Even though this little guy is Number 3 for us, I still can't believe how fast the time goes by. He'll be 1 year old in just a few months.
He sure is a sweet little guy. He has started doing the "commando" crawl. He just seems to drag himself along with only one functioning leg. He hasn't figured out to use both of his legs to help him with his crawling.
He's finally sitting up on his own.
Not a very whiney little guy either. He usually only cries when he is tired, hungry or irritated.
Grandma just came to visit us last week and I know she just hated to leave.
Happy 8 month Birthday!

Some random stuff

We went on a family bike ride about 3 weeks ago. The weather was gorgeous and we rode about 4 miles. It was my first time using the bike trailer to bring baby along.
 All went well, except for the one wipe out I had when a 9 year old kid crashed into me which in turn made me crash and fall off my bike. It was quite a site to see.
I was fine and the only one I was really worried about was the baby, but he was unharmed.
The boys' parents apologized profusely and I just smiled and dusted myself off.

The day before our bike ride, Hubby took the older two kiddos on a hike. I decided to take the baby and do some shopping. Wasn't up for a hike. They had a good time though and enjoyed the beautiful view of the city.

Had a friend and her baby girl over for dinner. The babies weren't quite sure what to do with each other except suck on each others faces. It was very cute.

What else have we been up to? Let's see? My oldest son got 100% on his spelling test this week. Nothing really exciting about that because he usually gets 100%. Yes, I'm bragging.
My daughter got moved up to a new reading group. Bragging, again.
Our baby started crawling around, he's using one of his legs, but he hasn't figured out how to use both of his legs to help him move along.

That's really about all the excitement around here. Well, there's always my anxiety that keeps things fun and exciting. I seriously hope to slay that demon soon, because I've had it with anxiety and depression!
Have a great weekend!

Snazzy Sandwich for your kiddo!

I was tired of making the same ham & cheese sandwich for my kid's for their lunch.
So, I got a little creative one day and this is what I came up with:


Cute, don't you think?
Very easy to make.
1. Sliced celery for the eyebrows.
2. Sliced cherry tomatoes and carrots for the eyes.
3. Cheese slices for the teeth.
4. Lunch meat for the tongue.

I'm sure there are lots of variations you can make up.
My kids got a good laugh out of these sandwiches and wouldn't you know it, they ate the whole thing!
Show me your sandwich creation!
