Seven Month Baby


Baby girl turned 7 months old this week. 

7 months already... ay, ay, ay!

She still isn't a great sleeper. She goes to bed between 8 and 10 pm and sleeps until 8 or 9 am. But she's still up at least twice each night. During the day she takes either 1 or 2 naps, totally 2-3 hours. 

She rolls all the time now, getting across the room fairly quickly. No crawling yet, but it'll be happening soon, I suspect. 

She jabbers a lot, saying "da da da da." 

She eats some baby food at supper time each day. So far she's liking green beans and mango and pears. 

Happy 7 months, baby girl!

Daddy's Birthday


Daddy has a birthday today! The big 39!

The kids and I made a poster with 39 things we love about Dad. Creating that list got us thinking about all the different things there are to love - that he takes out the trash, that he goes on bike rides with us, he takes us on vacations, he reads to us, etc. 

Along with the banner, we gave him a new coffee mug filled with chocolate goodies and a birthday balloon! 

We love our Daddy! 

Happy birthday to you!

Dress Like a Cow


It's that time of year again - "Dress Like a Cow, Get Free Chicken" day at our local Chick-fil-a restaurant.

This was the first time for this little miss, who didn't really need the free food anyway. But she did look adorable in the hat, don't you think?!

The other kids and myself, well, we've enjoyed dressing up like cows for years...

In fact, I keep most of these cow outfits in a special place in the closet so it's easy to pull them out each July. 
The silly things we do for free food!
