There’s nothing like cuddling together on Daddy’s pillow and reading a book about how not to care for a new baby.

These girls sure do love their Daddy. I wonder how he’s going to feel about the chocolate Maggie wiped into his pillow case from her face.

People… It’s happened!

My oldest child, my 22-year-old baby girl, got engaged last night to this great guy that we’ve all taken a liking to.

More details to come on a date and any other necessary information.

Gosh, I’m so happy about this!

Things Maggie Says

Rabbit was holding Lanie and Maggie was talking to her, trying to get her attention.

After about 10 second she gave up and said, we need to get another baby. This one isn’t smiling.

This child would like me to get her a new baby of her own. I’m going to encourage her to at least wait until she learns that babies can’t be carried by their necks.

Last night

I’ve had these baby headphone ear protectors for when we have a loud music or sporting event to go to for years and last night at the Globetrotters game was Lanie’s first time wearing them.

It really wasn’t all that loud but she seemed uncomfortable so I put them on her and it was quite humorous to watch her reaction. She kept looking back and forth between Rabbit and me with a confused expression on her face. 

Eventually we took them off and she seemed to do better with all the commotion, smiling and dancing to the music, but it was helpful to have the ear protection to give her senses a little break.

Everybody else had a great time too.


No video this time because taking care of Lanie was a full time job but we really did enjoy ourselves and will definitely return the next time The Harlem Globetrotters make it back to our area.

It’s handy to have a handy husband.

We have a a cold. It started in Christmas day and has kept hold of us this whole week. I’m the one that’s had it the worst worst so far but Ben and Matthew have been feeling pretty crummy too.

Rabbit, on the other hand, hasn’t even gotten a single sniffle (yet) and spent the entire weekend, while I was sitting around being fussy, doing this:

He had ripped out a cracked and well worn plastic shower stall, repaired the wall where moisture had caused some nasty rot, and created an awesome corner shower in the girls’ bedroom because he’s super awesome like that.  Grout, paint, and some new hardware and the bathroom will be ready for decorating.  The girls are thinking purple, pink, ponies, and glitter. 

It was a really big job and it’s almost finished. Yay!

I married very well.

Progress.  

Lanie’s trying her hand at forward moving the last couple of days. She’s still got a a long way to go but she is unbelievably happy about it all.

And I am well aware that I didn’t do much posting about adoption last month.  Things got wild and there was shopping and the best of friends and turkey and there were a lot of words that I wanted to write but my brain got in the way.

My return to blogging was furious but my regularity didn’t last very long.  I’m still hoping to get back into a consistent rhythm. There is so much life happening that I want to document. 

And in case I don’t write again in the next two days, Merry Christmas everybody.

Good weather. Cute baby.  

I love this picture that I snapped of Lanie yesterday. I feel like she’s just hanging back listing to some fun conversation.

I wish I could come up with a cute caption for it. Nothing’s coming to me though.    

Heyo!


How is it possible for a heart to melt over and over and over again.

Quick post to keep up my blogging streak.  

In an effort to continue blogging daily I’m just going to post a quick picture of Lanie.

I had wanted Lanie to be sleeping but somebody thought she needed an orange squirt gun instead.

Nobody has fessed up but I have a strong suspicion that it was Maggie because, well, it’s the kind of thing she does.
