Where's the next one going to fit?

Macy wanted to know where our new baby would fit in Daddy's arms...good question!

Have you heard the song by Trace Adkins called "You're gonna miss this"? I love the song, I know it's so true. Just trying to soak up all the precious little minutes, in the midst of diaper changes, barf, arguing, and many messes...

"You're gonna miss this
You're gonna want this back
You're gonna wish these days
Hadn't gone by so fast...

These are some good times
So take a good look around
You may not know it now
But you're gonna miss this..."


These were my Mother's Day flowers. This lily started out as a tight bud & I didn't know if it would open or not...I hoped it would.

Isn't it funny what flowers and plants do overnight? It always seems that one day trees are bare and then you wake up the next morning & they suddenly have fresh, new leaves all over.

Have I mentioned lately that I love my new camera? I'm trying to learn new things and tricks (with all my spare time! HA!)-my newest find is changing the F-stop. Although I'm limited by my lens, I really like some of the pictures I get!

This can't be normal!

One of her many talents...

Can most kids do this?

What's Missing?

Lots of clutter? Yes. In my current "nesting" state, this house has lost a lot of clutter-I can't handle it & I want it gone! But that's not about pictures of family & friends? Yes, also missing. See above note, but my solution to that was to buy an adorable memo board that I put up on the wall & it has all my photos on it. No, the one thing that was NEVER gone from my fridge for as long as I've had "my" fridge is a calendar. I've always had one front and center to keep my life organized and make sure I don't forget some important event. Then came then new cell phone...and life has never been the same. The biggest change is that I finally gave in to my intuition and ditched the traditional calendar to keep all my dates and important info digitally. It's been so nice!! Never do I wonder when I'm making a doctor's appointment if it will conflict with something else or if I say a friend can come over to later find out we have 2 other things going on that's always with me.

So long, cluttered refrigerator and so long to my old calendar!

The Lesser Known Side of Lily

Lily can't hide her emotions on her face-there's never a doubt how she feels. And, she has plenty of faces to get these emotions across to you! This is a new one & you can't help but laugh! And yes, the girl is proving to be quite ornery to go along with this face...

All By Himself

Jack put this puzzle together all by himself without ever seeing it before. I came in to help him & he was done! He doesn't know how to use the box either, so that wasn't help...I think it just means that he knows every inch of Lightning McQueen & Mater!!
