wats goin' on round these parts....

My all time favorite (of the moment) picture of my little Daisy. Taken by Maddy. It's printed and framed on my wall. It's a shocker -- I know. I actually have pictures of all 3 of my children on my wall.

This kid is growing by leaps and bounds. This is what she looks like most of the time..... it really chaps my hide.

Yes, my friends she is trying her darndest to CRAWL. If you notice the date on the picture it's her 5 month birthday. I usually just take a face picture on her monthly birthday, but this month I took some of her doing this. Also, she started out on the blanket. We've since upgraded to a larger one. She also, enjoys moving just off any blanket and spitting up on the carpet. It's her favorite thing.

As you can see, I've been making baby food for Daisy. Probably you don't want to stick a wooden spoon in the blender while it's blending. Probably not......curses.

Peas and carrots, carrots and peas covering a 5 foot square area (underside of cabinets and microwave included)

Also, baby D enjoys eating her toes. She is SITTING upright in her highchair. Every morning while Max is changing her diaper (YIPPEE), he asks D if he can borrow her leg since her toes are always in her mouth. It pained me to do it, but I took her toe nail polish off. It didn't seem like a good thing for her to be eating.

These clowns are preparing for the end of the school year. Maddy is knee deep in end of year testing and Ruby is starting to bring all her cute artwork home. Ru planted a sunflower for a Mother's Day surprise but it got bent at school and broke clean off. She was very "pitiful Pearl" about it until she remembered she had a card for me.

And last, but not least, this little bundle belongs to my cutest friend, Shaunell. Calais (I don't recall her middle name) was born April 12th. She's perfect and and I was the first one (besides her parents and the nurses) to hold her. Sometimes, it payes to go to the hospital. I'm probably her favorite. I was so happy for Shaunell that I cried as soon as I hugged her....Which made her cry. Even better, her hubby got it all on film.

That's what's been going on. Well that and a bunch of stupid no Internet ruckus. I'm over it.

The end.

At least I didn't cry....

Last Tuesday was my 37th birthday. On that day, Ruby said, "I hope you don't cry all day, like you did last year."

She is NOT my favorite child.

The end.

PS Last year, on my birthday, I was 8 weeks pregnant. This year I have the most darling, sweetest BABY on the planet. (the Ruby is slipping in the ratings)

The end....again

PS....again, I didn't get birthday shelves like the past 2 birthday years, I got a storm door so I can shed some light to our dungeon of an entry.

The end for reals.
