What can happen in two months time (when you write and speak and sell and rhyme).

What can happen in two months time (when you write and speak and sell and rhyme).

Sometimes through this journey of publishing our first book, it feels slow-going. I can’t give it full-time attention. I don’t have an author website (yet). I’m limited in how many school presentations I can do. I’m struggling to get the “Look Inside the Book” feature on our Amazon listing. We don’t yet have a hardcover […]

2 months in 1 post

This post will be a little here, there, and everywhere. I’m trying to squeeze, you know, two months of the kids into a single post. Big breath in. Here goes! Corban has started drawing IDENTIFIABLE objects! We found this website that he can click through himself. Very step-by-step, and he loves it! We were waiting […]

The Puzzle

The Puzzle

I got a puzzle for Christmas. A 1,000 piece puzzle. Of Nancy Drew book covers. The biggest puzzle I’ve ever done was 500 pieces. And I wasn’t sure I’d ever do one again. But this one was made of words. With lots of borders in between each cover. I couldn’t get enough! Plus, each cover […]

The Baby Giant

The Baby Giant

This girl has been in 12 month clothing for a couple months! I was not prepared, but thankfully, the grandmas were:) She smiles all day. Especially when we let her eat by herself. Unsupervised, she prefers to eat crayon. Oy. She DOWNED this pear and loved every minute of it! Once in her life, she […]

Corban turns 5!

Corban turns 5!

We mostly do family birthday celebrations, but for a select few birthdays, we’ve chosen to celebrate with friends. Age 5 is one of those birthdays. Which I don’t even know why I mention it because there’s no way I have a five-year-old. At least, I didn’t. And then, boom, I did. Cray cray. For this party, Corban chose […]

A smorgasbord of siblings

A smorgasbord of siblings

Jaeda is our nurturer and just wants to sit and read Liddi books and smile sweetly all day. But when she’s with Corban, watch out! They play fast and furious! Nephew Timmy (and his parents, what were their names, again?) visited this fall. Jaeda loved reading him books (see above). We babysat one evening for a total […]

The Shoephabet: My 4th Baby

The Shoephabet: My 4th Baby

It has been noticeably quiet around this blog since September (except for one cut-and-paste post in October). And you know what happened in September? I started seriously working on our book. Well, like that October post said, we finished it! And my small amount of computer time for blogging has turned into computer time for […]

Lidia Felice

Liddi and Great Grandma captured their second photo. And always with her blankie does she her head deep burrow. Liddi Bitty loves to stare head cocked down on one side. She also loves to stand and wave and does so with great pride. She got to naw on her first pickle and stared and thought and […]

Jaeda Jane

Jaeda Jane

Jaeda needed a talking to (she is our first threenager). But she felt asleep while I nursed Lid (so she couldn’t hear, I’d wager). She’s asked if she could do some school to be like her big brother. She’ll do a few and then exclaim, “Oh, please, PLEASE not another!” The long hair in the pic above […]

Corban James

Corban James

  James makes a car ramp from Christmas gift boxes. Corban lays near registers as chilly air he outfoxes. C Dog plays dress up in our neighbor girls’ new bath. And records his favorite things in a chart during math. And finally, his very proudest moment where he starred: turning five and getting books with his own library […]
