8 months old and awesome!

Everett is 8 months old!
{Remember to click here to see the full post!}

Honestly these photos were taken at 8 months and one week. On his true 8-month birthday, I realized it was his birthday at 7pm when he was already asleep, and the next day we left for the beach. More on that later!


See that mark above his left eye? It's his first true injury from trying to crawl. He took a lunge into the side of a bookcase.


Here's the attempt with the usual props.



At least you can see this is 8 months!


Love that you can see the injury and the sign in this one. The glossy stuff on his face is from the balm I put on his wound.


Love him!


Here's an extra good one of the injury.


Stay tuned for photos from our beach adventure!

And here are 8 new facts about E:

1. He hasn't gained that much weight, but he has lengthened out a lot.
2. He has four teeth on the top that came in at the same time!
3. We've added mangoes, strawberries and green beans to his diet.
4. He babbles all the time and is making lots of letter sounds and combinations.
5. He's developed a sense of humor. If you look at him funny, he will laugh out loud.
6. He is great to play by himself. This is such a wonderful trait for a work-from-home momma. He is happy to sit on the floor and play, while I get some computer work done.
7. He still isn't crawling. He's gotten a lot better at going from sitting to his belly and belly to back.
8. He doesn't like strangers. He likes checking people out for a bit before warming up to them. He likes his personal space, and I can't blame him.

A new look!

What do you think about the new look of my site? Click any box to read the full posts!

I thought it was time to spice things up a bit, and the blogging world has come a long way in the years since I started this site. 


I may continue to make a few changes, but I like the direction this is going in. I've decided to remove the ads. I was making less and less money since my content has changed to being mostly family-focused updates on E. 

You'll see that each post is shown as a preview, and you'll need to click it to read and see everything. This includes links that are in the post. 


On the right, you'll see pop-out black bar with my archive, poplar posts, followers, etc. You can also continue to scroll down the page with no hassle of clicking from page to page. 


So take a look around, and check back soon as I spruce up a little more!

I'm so happy that we have photos of E with everyone, and he was an amazing performer.

8 years ago

Eight years ago today!

First swim

A few weeks ago, we took Everett on his first swim.

He was pretty adorable in his swimming trunks and shirt.

Even had a hat!

I found the raft here, and it worked out wonderfully!

I think everyone had a big time!
