two more; one less

Aaron is now 9 months old. He is such a sweet and cuddly boy that he wants to be held *EVERY* minute of every day. So that wears on mom a bit, especially at 22 pounds!
Photo evidence of Jaci's first foray with scissors (she is 24 pounds):
I had sent the girls to get dressed one morning this week when I heard Tessa say "Hey Mom! Look, I'm a scarecrow!" Pretty creative, I thought!
Ella has ONE LESS tooth as of Sunday! It began to wiggle around lunch time, and came out at dinner time! It was a bit traumatic for her, being that she is the squeamish type and I had told her it would probably be several days before it actually fell out! Instead of continuing the tradition of "tooth fairy", she got to choose a special activity to celebrate.
...And we have TWO MORE mouths to feed in this house. The kids won these goldfish from Kids Club Tuesday night. I consider taking on pets as a very big ordeal, something we talk about, decide on, and prepare for. Obviously, the prize givers don't. Sigh. Guess who gets to remember to feed them and clean their tank and console the kids when their little feeder fish lifespan is over? :) Names TBA.


  1. what fun, Ally gets sad when she tells me "Mom, all of my friends have lost teeth, and I'm the only one who hasn't!" She is super excited for a loose tooth. :) I love that picture of all your kids. I did get your letter in the mail, and I have been meaning to tell you thanks. I always love to get letters in the mail, it is kind of a dying art. I am sorry it has taken me so long to tell you that :) I have a new address by the way, that letter went to our old house, I did get it though I am not sure how long it actually took to get here, I will email it to you, or maybe just drop you a card or something.

  2. Thanks for leaving a note on our blog! Fun to look through yours and get a little 'reaquainted'! You have 4 beautiful children.
