No Matter How Big She Is - She'll Always Be My Baby!

They all will for that matter :)

As I shared in one of my last posts, and as I'll share in a minute - M is becoming such a big girl :) What a little friend she is to me. My boys were born hating to shop. I guess that's why I gave it up (oh yeah, and couldn't afford it anymore!), but to take them was such drudgery! But M - oh my - she loves it :) Never complains about wanting to go home. This morning we went grocery shopping, and she had her little purse. What a little woman in training. But, as I said in this title - as big as she is - she'll always be my baby. You can see in the picture above that she fell asleep in her high chair today while eating lunch. Running errands wears you out, ya know :)

M took yet another step into girlhood. This weekend, she moved out of her crib and into a big girl bed! She LOVES it and was quite happy to give her crib to baby K :) Boy did she touch my heart - I told her to tell Daddy thank you for her bed. Well Daddy was outside having fun with the boys (I'll show pictures of that too in a minute) - and about 1/2 hour to an hour later, when Daddy came in she remembered to thank him without any reminder from me. She keeps thanking Daddy for her bed too -
Her bed is really a trundle bed that the boys used to share - and so there is a huge space underneath - just perfect for hiding under, right C?

Baby K checking out her new bed. She was looking so big in the little bassinet - now she looks little again in the big crib. I can't let a post go by without saying, again, what a wonderful baby she is :)

And what was Daddy doing outside with the boys? Well, let's see if you can see in this dark picture:Yes - he's skateboarding. Our son O has been dying for a skateboard, and this weekend we took the plunge.
Someone needs to teach O right? So Daddy wanted to be the one to do that, which is why he too bought a skateboard.

The teen who sold us the skateboards thought this was pretty cool and was pretty amazed I think - that a Dad would buy a skateboard with his son. To quote the young man - "the family that skateboards together is AWESOME!" Well, skateboarding may not be my thing, but the young man was right - the family that does anything together is awesome. O has a huge desire to skateboard, and while my heart was hesitant at first, I realized there was no good reason. We gave O the idea to form a skateboarding for Jesus club :)

And just so he isn't neglected *wink* - here's another picture of C after I gave him a haircut last week. What a handsome young son I have. This morning he built a Lincoln Log house and came running to me and said - "Mom, I think Jesus is really proud of the house I built!" Yes, C, He is very proud as am I.
Have a great week!

skate for jesus!?
I think that jesus has shot you in the brain with some of that so called magical holy dust!
You can skate for jesus, chruch and that fucking jesus has allready taken everything eles!
"Bible Games" for the NES back in the 80's!
They make Jesus clubs like it was fun to worship some asshat who never lived!
And! The thing about "jesus christ" is "he told" the people who are so brainwashed to bealive in him, that "don't do this" and "don't do this" instead of saying "do this!" or "do that!"
So, you dumb ass cock sucking hillbilly racist ignorant ass wipes only know what you not should do, instead of what you SHOULD do!

Stay, stay at home, my heart, and rest;
Home-keeping hearts are happiest,
For those that wander they know not where
Are full of trouble and full of care;
To stay at home is best.

Weary and homesick and distressed,
They wander east, they wander west,
And are baffled and beaten and blown about
By the winds of the wilderness of doubt;
To stay at home is best.

Then stay at home, my heart, and rest;
The bird is safest in its nest;
O'er all that flutter their wings and fly
A hawk is hovering in the sky;
To stay at home is best.
~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
