today is the birthday of the most important woman in my life…
my wonderful mama!
she was able to spend most of the day here, visiting with me and her favorite (only) grandchild. then she, jerry, my brother, jeremiah and i went to texas roadhouse tonight. (i got a few pics of jeremiah sitting in a restaraunt high chair for the first time!)
my mom is the best mom in the whole world. she loves us with unconditional love and encourages and challenges us to be better people than we are. she has taken her son and daughter in law both under her wing as if they were here own children. she is also the most wonderful loving grandma ever! she just loves jeremiah with all her heart. i’m so thankful for her! happy birthday, mama!!!!!
i have been working on a special scrapbook for her, with digital scrappages, and the photos STILL aren’t here. 🙁 i really hope they come tomorrow. i will share the link with you (but mom if you want to be surprised, DON’T LOOK! 😉 : click here. as for everyone else, if you visit it, i would LOVE to hear your comments!! 😀
jerry and i are watching the republican nat. conv. it’s a lot better than i thought it would be. george is growing on me. (i am considering voting for <a href="http://www.peroutka2004.com/" target="
_mike”>mike peroutka of the constitution party. i am still undecided as of yet.) i really enjoyed arnold’s speech the other night. 😀
the house is progressing along. does anyone know a great place to get paint at discount prices? in indiana? how about wallpaper borders? flooring? carpet? 😉 hehe. thought i’d ask, just in case someone knows!!
jeremiah is feeling MUCH better. i am SO happy that he is. the medicine is working really well. he is almost back to his normal loving sweet happy contented self. he is smiling once again, and not crying at the drop of the hat. you can still tell when his tylenol is still wearing off, but the pain is nowhere near as severe. and hey, in case you wondered, still NO TEETH. bbbllllpppttt.
today, my mom heard him say “all duh” like all done. she had changed his diaper, and as we always do when we are finished with something with him, we sign and say “all done”. well, when he was ‘standing’ on the changing table, mom said he said “all duh”. isn’t that exciting?! he is growing up so much it’s unbelievable. hey, how do you trim a baby’s hair? do you wait until he’s asleep, or what? i can’t imagine trying to do it, having him move quickly, and me accidentally cut him! his hair is getting really long and shaggy. he had to wear a hat tonight when we went out because it was so unruly. LOL. he looks so much more like a toddler than a baby now. i have to admit to all that the baby bug has majorly bitten me. i don’t know if i want to wait until december (like i’d wanted to in the beginning) anymore before we try to get pregnant. of course, you have to have sex on a regular basis to try to get pregnant, and we’re still not there! sorry if tmi, but it’s true. i have still had a bit of pain during it. nursing is also keeping me very dry and making my libido really pitiful. hopefully that’s over now though. praying praying praying about it!
i am sorry i’ve not been visiting everyone like i should. i have been busy working on mom’s layouts for a few days, and also since jeremiah has been so mobile, it’s so hard to get on and stay on here! i start visiting people, and barely get to read a whole post, let alone comment on it! but please know i am thinking of everyone and still appreciate all the visits and comments i receive. you all are so great! dear chatting friends: jen, i miss you so much! i am praying for lil adriana and hope she gets better soon! i also hope you get some time free so we can either chat or talk on the phone soon! 😀 manda, glad that things seem to be going well with you and sarrah. she is growing up so fast! i hope we can chat for more than five minutes sometime soon! 😉 carol, i will check out the video tomorrow probably, as i’m tired tonight. hope you and cole are doing fab! 😀 julie, loved all amanda’s photos. how’s alicia’s potty training going? hehe! hugs! jennifer, when are you gonna get msn for me to msn ya girl?!? give ianpolyolie a big hug and kiss from me! if i forgot someone please forgive my forgetfulness. ever since being pregnant, i have lost my mind. :spin:
please continue to pray for us, as we embark on this move. it’s quite a big deal to us, as we’ve never owned our own home before!!!!
blessings and hugs all!!!
