Man, I sure have been falling down on the blogging front! Thanks for the forgiveness! :-) The silence doesn't mean nothing has been happening! And I definitely have been snapping pictures along the way! I just unloaded a whole bunch of them from my camera... so stay tuned for a string of posts. :-) But this is a blog, so maybe I should include some words and not JUST pictures. So, what have we been up to lately?
Well, my days are full of little people as usual, and the challenges, frustrations and the trilling joys of caring for these precious ones. Tirzah is now 6 months! She is getting so adorable. Her big, gummy smiles are precious. She loves to be held and walked around and have activity. Her siblings are the best at making her laugh, and they like her a lot!!! Clara and Hil were enjoying playing with Tirzy this morning and Clara was talking about how cute she was thanked me for Tirzah. So precious.
No teeth yet... and those gummy grins are just way to cute!! :-)
The adorable hat she was given as a gift.... she figured out pretty quickly how to pull it off.
Our little peanut, Ittai is growing and blossoming. He has suddenly been showing a love for singing. A couple months ago he was singing one line of Jesus Loves Me. Now he has an every growing repertoire of songs he will voluntarily start singing: Sing Hosanna, Jesus Loves Me, I'm in the Lord's Army, We Wish You A Merry Christmas, Twinkle Twinkle, Bless The Lord Oh My Soul. We love it! Still loves his pacies. Mommy hasn't tackled potty training yet... but I think the time may not be very far away. Loves his Daddy.
Brother Sweetness. I think they had decided to watch for Daddy... not realizing that it was still an hour or so before Daddy normally get's home.
Another happening around here has been a new batch of baby chicks. Very fun for little people, though very messy and more work for Mom and Dad. :-) Sometimes I wonder if the chicken thing is something I want to keep doing. But for now, we are.
The last while, Clara has been having track practices with our homeschool group. The meet was yesterday, so that is all done for this year. Here are the two boys playing around at one of her practices.
Messing around at her meet yesterday.
And here is the girl during prep for the relay. :-)
