Throwback Friday

This was a loooooooooong time ago. Okay, fine. It was a few hours ago.

No frills. No talent. Definitely no real dance moves. And yes, we are in our jammies.

Baby Bjorn

Gabe hasn't had any problems with the adjustment of adding a new baby to the family.  Nope.   Doesn't bother him at all that Lincoln is being cuddled and carried and fed 24/7.  Hasn't phased him in the least.

Which is why he definitely did not insist on taking Linc's place in the Bjorn.

Edible or Not

A little snip-it from my morning:

Maddie:  Mom, what are black eyed peas?
Me:  Oh, they are a band.
M:  Huh?  
Me:  You know, a singing group.  Rock band.  Fergie?  (ok, she def wouldn't know that!)
M:  Really?  Cause in my book they are cooking them.....for dinner.
Me:  Ooooooooh!  Of course.  They are also a bean.  As in, a vegetable.
M:  Ok, can we get some and cook them?
Me:  Uh, yes?
M:  Cool!

I'm gonna be honest here.....don't even know where to find these in the grocery.

by Madeline

The apples are red
The pumpkins are turning
I see colors all around
Like yellow, orange and red
The bright colors tell me that Fall is here
Fall, Fall, Fall.

I wish I had to time to detail out our conversation this morning.  As we are planning a trip to a local Amish restaurant, we've been talking about the Amish and their history.  Suffice it to say that Madeline is completely enamored and announced today that she'd like to become Amish.  The Ordnung holds no dissuasion for her as she has said, "I can live just fine without a television!"

Oooookay then.

Happy 1/4 Year Birthday Lincoln!

I might have cuddled on the coach with Lincoln yesterday instead of making dinner.

He might have yet to be introduced to his cradle or crib.

I might carry him from room to room with me as I do my "duties" knowing full well that I could pop him in the bouncy seat and he wouldn't make a peep.

He might have the most addictive smile in the entire world.

I might have cried this week as I packed up his first few newborn outfits that he has outgrown.

He might be the first of our children that isn't sleeping through the night yet.

And I might be enjoying every. single. minute.

Throwback Friday

Exactly one year ago.

I surprised Ron with a zip line tour through a National Park.  And got a first hand experience of what it would feel like to have a panic attack.  No joke.  Aside from that, it was really pretty cool.
