My Bitty Babies

I was going through old pictures last week and I wanted to post a few. These start with Sarah Kate.
This was made last October.
This how Sarah Kate spent her first 3 months. CRYING!

In the hospital. We loved her thick, full head of hair.
This was made the day we brought her home.
Now for Emily. She was soooooo little. She weighed 6lbs 6 oz. This was her first real bath at 3 weeks old.
Almost 6 months and eating cereal for the first time.
My little cowgirl.

Looking at these make me kind of want another baby.
It is fun to look back on the days when they were little babies.

Those are so sweet!! I was looking at old pictures last night and cried as I tucked my oldest into bed tonight- where does time go!?!? But I am done. #3 was a surprise. And she's giving me a run for my money- just had to take her to the health unit at 11 pm to glue and butterfly stitch a always happens when my husband is gone! grr.

So cute! I think your Emily and my Emma could be sisters. Something about the eyes.

My husband was sitting on the couch the other day and there was a reality show (House Hunters maybe) where there was a newborn baby. He said, "Awe, I want another one." LOL Used to be me always wanting a baby, so it was kind of cute. We're done having babies, but I LOVE seeing and hearing about other people little babies.

Maybe I am wrong, but I don't remember life being so complicated when I was in middle school. Everything is so competitive now.  Maybe it was back then and I just didn't realize it. Sarah Kate started playing city league softball a couple of weeks ago.   We've been encouraged to get her private batting lessons. When I was in third grade I started playing softball and I just did it for fun!  No stress at all, as far as I can remember!  I just played.  I wasn't very good, but I liked it! Ha! Emily started band this year!  Before school started, I got a letter from the school district strongly encouraging "your band student to take instrument lessons."  WHAT?  I bought into it and got Emily private clarinet lessons (which she really enjoys)! But, what happened to learning as you go?  I never thought about taking private trumpet lessons when I started band. It seems like most parents are striving for their child to be THE BEST.  I guess that's a go

Something Good to Eat

Ever since Steve and I started dating, when we would go to Mississippi, his aunt would make the BEST ROAST IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!! Steve's Dad's side of the family gets together at his Granny's house for lunch every Sunday after church. The food is always sooo good!!!!!!!!!!!! I have always taken a liking to his Aunt Judy's roast. It really is the best roast I have ever had. When we were there on Labor Day weekend, my sister in law asked Aunt Judy for the recipe. Aunt Judy began naming all the ingredients. She said Ranch Dressing mix, and I bugged my eyes out and nearly chocked. I HATE RANCH DRESSING. I don't even like to be in the room with it. I had to focus on the word MIX....not the mayo and butter milk and sour cream that you add to it. Just typing those words makes me shudder. The recipe sounded awful as she rattled off the ingredients, but I promise, you have got to make this if you like a good roast. Trust me on this. Here it is: Get a tender chuck

Life in Pictures!

Emily is enjoying her first year in band.  I am very impressed with her playing skill! Sarah Kate was recently awarded the empathy award at her school.  She is very deserving of this! Here we are before the Cotillion Holly Ball.
