Aaron’s speech July 2017

I made this to share with Miss Michelle, the speech therapist who worked with Aaron from about 18m to his third birthday.  He’s come a long way!  :)     Me: Say, “Hi, Miss Michelle.” Aaron: Uh, me see her. Um.  It’s you.  It’s supposed to be you. OK. Can you say, “Hi, Miss Michelle?” […]

May 1st and 2nd Aaron wanted in on the fun.  :)   April   (Those are cloth diaper inserts on the floor.)   March (These two show him waking up from a nap… when I would have had him sleep longer.) Photo courtesy of Aaron, who loves to change the color balance to green before […]

A taste of June (2015)

A taste of June (2015)

Summer! So – it’s hard to organize a family.  Especially a family with many little children.  I’m trying to figure out something that will actually work for us, but for now it definitely feels more like herding cats than the ideal picture of ducklings following their mother, all in a line.  Yeah, no line here.  […]

“About Mom” interveiws

I noticed “About Mom” interview questions going around Facebook.  It is so cute to read what my friends’ little children say about them!  So I decided to see what my own children would say.  I kept them separate (except for Abigail’s, when Kathryn was around) so they had no idea what their siblings had said.  […]

Aaron is a year old!

Aaron is a year old!

It’s been a full year now since Aaron joined our family. It’s amazing how fast it feels. And yet how long ago it seems at the same time.

Emma's 8th birthday

Emma’s 8th birthday

So, I was going to label this post as July 2014 and indicate it was the second half.  But then I realized the “second half” was basically all about Emma anyway. Emma turned 8.  Wow.  She is growing and maturing so quickly! She was so excited to turn 8!  These were taken the Sunday prior […]

July 2014 (the first half)

Aaron at 7 months Aaron continued building on his skills from June and by July could freely scoot himself across the floor to play with his toys. He continued to enjoy eating … … his seat.And sometimes actual food as well.  Maybe.    A sweet moment We had just finished the little ones’ bath.  Aaron […]

June 2014

I’ve gotten behind.  Way behind.  This is about 6 months behind.  Yikes!  But I don’t want to just skip all the months I’ve missed.  So I have a goal to catch up this week, at least through October.  Here I go…  :) Aaron at 6 months old Aaron is a generally happy little one.  Sometimes […]

Reflections 2014

Reflections 2014

In October, we continued our family tradition of participating in the Reflections program.  Including the children’s tradition of being completely set on doing it yet putting it off until the day before the deadline.  In fact, Kathryn did hers *after* her deadline, as the Reflections chairperson decided to give an extra day for the younger […]

May 2014

Saturday, May 3rd Aaron at 5 months.  Not only could he lift his head well, he could now push his chest up! I think I’m better at taking “month day” pictures for him than I have been for any other child.  It helps that it’s practically the beginning of the month.  :)  (Though these were […]
