Jaeda is our nurturer.

Jaeda is our nurturer.

This little sweetie loves all living things. (Or stuffed things that represent living things.) Just this morning, I heard a loud “nom nom nom” at the dining room table. Her tiny plastic dinosaur had his face stuffed in her waffle. Every living being needs nourishment, I suppose. Thankfully, we have neighbors with live creatures to […]

Things That Go

Things That Go

After riding a two-wheeler with training wheels most of last summer, we had Corban try a balance bike. It took him a while to push his feet against the ground versus pedals. But he became quite adept at it and was lifting his feet up, gliding, for longer and longer periods. So. Two weeks ago, with […]

When Uncle Matt Came

When Uncle Matt Came

Matt spent half of his spring break with us, and boy, were we thankful! He took care of some handyman projects around the house with laser-focus. As in, he was only two days in and done with them all! Sooo I asked him if he thought we could strip and stain the porch floor. Hehe. […]

Liddi: Two Months

Liddi: Two Months

Liddi has this tiny little section of hair, back in the middle of her head. A few days after a bath, it starts to get a little greasy, making it the perfect quality for twisting. And there’s nothing she can do about it. Hehe. She’s also given me more consistent smiles, eek! I actually cried on her […]

The basement’s back!

The basement’s back!

What a long road this has been. We lost use of our basement as a regular living space February 2014 due to leaky walls, found it flooding again due to a sewer back up (twice in three days!), and discovered our water heater flushing itself during Liddi’s birth. Let’s just say it’s been a ride. […]

There once was a day.

There once was a day.

It looked a lot like this: It included preparing for an essential oils talk at our MOMs group. And reading our Proverbs book for our discussion time. And packing everything up to leave by 8:30 to take Daddy some Happy Friday coffee and arrive early to help in the childcare at church. (And it was our only […]

Jobs and Responsibilities

Jobs and Responsibilities

My sister Anna got both kids a little present when Liddi was born. Jaeda got a color game (IT WORKED; SHE’S FINALLY LEARNED {most of} HER COLORS!), and Corban got this chore chart. He’s been asking about money for, oh, a year or so. So we decided to finally do something about it. The top […]

How the big kids play.

How the big kids play.

JAIL Corban takes great joy in organizing his jail and placing his naughty stuffed animal in the middle of the chaos. Sometimes, he calls this school or MOMs group as well. I’m not entirely sure of the correlation of all three locations to this jumble of chairs and baskets, but it aaaall makes sense to […]

{{a style all her own}}

{{a style all her own}}

I found this shirt at Kids’ Market. This was my first year actually buying clothes for the kids there. And once I saw this shirt with a cute little pig-tailed redhead, I knew I had to have it for Jaeda. Gah, I can’t even handle her cuteness. She desires more and more to not only dress herself […]
