'Round Here

Rebekah had her 6 month checkup last week. She only weighs 13lbs and is in the 5th percentile in weight. Tiny girl!

She loves to play on the floor with toys. She is already looking up to her....

big sister! Yep, that would be Sarah with the boy underwear on. *sigh*

Rebekah has been sitting up all by herself. Aaron, her overprotective brother, lectured me about not catching her fast enough if she started to fall over.

He loves that girl!!

The boys have a new 'toy' in the garage. I actually go out there and let some of my frustration out every now and then:)

Levi's 'high kick'. If you could see the look on his face when he executes this move...priceless.

I think someone else may have on the wrong underwear can you not know which underwear is yours? When you put it on and it cuts off your circulation, that's probably a good indicator that your 4 year old brother's underwear was mistakenly put in your drawer. At least he's keeping up with his chores:)

Jackson let me sleep in yesterday. He fixed cereal for the younger kids and then he brought me my breakfast in bed! Coffee, banana bread, toast, milk, and an apple. A perfect start for the day!


We ate, napped, swam, sunned, read, and ate some more! I never lifted a finger...Mama Re and Mom cooked, cleaned, and did the laundry. Someone was always available to tend to the kids. It was definitely VACATION!

Seis Meses

My sweet little Rebekah Claire....

You are now six months old. How can this be? Wasn't it just yesterday that you were born into this wild and crazy family? You are such a sweet baby and your brothers and big sister adore you. You love them, too! You are all smiles when they give you their attention. Heaven forbid that we ignore return we will receive a most deafening scream that will render our ear drums ineffective for at least 30 seconds. I am afraid that only Jesus will be able to help that temper of yours...

You are so very tiny and petite. You are wearing 6 month clothes and weigh less than 14 pounds. You are still nursing, but you will take a bottle very easily. This month you began cereal, fruits, and veggies. Your favorites are the fruits...of course. You must have a sweet tooth like your mommy. It won't be long and you will be sitting alone. You love the paci and I love this! You are the first of the clan to do so. It makes for very quiet car rides.

My favorite thing about you is your smile. It is so big and I love the dimples at the corners of your mouth. You are so precious to me and I am so blessed to have you. I cannot believe that I thought our family was complete without you. I love you!

Sheeps and Cubbers

Sarah loves to play outside with her brothers. She also loves to get very dirty while doing so. She wet her bed Saturday night and when it was time for her nap Sunday afternoon, she had no linens on her bed because I was washing them. Christian was home with the kids while I went to a bridal shower for Anna Grace. When I got home, I found Sarah napping in MY bed. Usually I would not mind, but she had been outside and was (in my opinion) in obvious need of a bath before getting into my nice clean white sheets. Unfortunately, father did not think so. I had a lovely dirt streak and puddle of tee tee on my sheets to clean up. I MUST remember to put pullups on my grocery list!

That evening when I was putting her to bed, we walked into her room and she said, "Uh oh, I need some sheeps and cubbers!" She then told me that tomorrow she wanted to "go to the park and swing and get a lolly pop." So sweet, innocent, and easy to please....
