Show and Tell.. looking up!

Show & Tell : Looking Up...


I was cleaning under my bed.. I know! Weird! and I'm so proud of myself..
When I looked up my little turtle looked so cute sitting up in his port-a-crib.
This picture was taken through 2 layers of mesh surrounding and enclosing the bed.
I like the texture it gives,

Photography love...

I love this paperheart camera site, I love the pictures, I know I'm not good enough to win yet, but I am getting better, and I love seeing what creativity people have. They inspire me.

He's Back!

Oh, Riley My Riley! :) How I have missed you so MuCH!! (wondering where he went) he went to temporary insanity pre-teenage attitude land for a visit.. But he is BACK! woohoo I noticed the change almost instantly.. It was amazing, like I gave him a Alice in Wonderland "eat me" cookie and that little back talking, eye rolling monster inside shrunk down so small I can no longer see him, and only the sweet, helpful kind boy remains to hug me :) I LOVE IT!

I told him the other day.. if you be good you can have that for your birthday "toy story 2 play set" he said "I'm going to be good for the rest of my LIFE" I've been good for 7 days! isnt that Crazy?!" Yes it is crazy! and it was nearly 7 days right on the dot! So its like he knew, when he made the choice to be good, and he is following thru.

even today, I changed Brady, put the diaper on the table, by the time I stood up and went to grab the diaper, Riley had already got it, and was throwing it away, and putting the bottle on the sink!. :)

Today Papop came over and cut up the tree in the back yard! I am SO thankful for him, he is awesome! and Riley helped.. He did a good job!

Im so sad for our tree, It was beautiful, the biggest on in our area, and full of leaves and branches.. although we can use it for firewood now..

But I am determined to plant another tree there.. and maybe in the corner. An apple tree, an orange tree.. or both :) or a lemon tree

Riley fell asleep on the couch a few nights ago.. like this

Does Not look comfy

What a Beautiful 9 months it has been

9 months!
I cant believe it!

My sweet baby boy is 9 months, I cant believe how fast time flies,

I look at him and see.. Bliss and Happiness..

it took us so so long to make him, it was so so hard, everyday, every hour of everyday.. every thought, every breath was filled with Hope, Sadness, Excitement, Disappointment for years..

Now look what this 9 months has brought me....

I am so greatful, & so blessed....

Sometimes I sit and think.. Why did it take so long, ? Why was it So hard!?..

Because now.. I can truely enjoy and appreciate him, for all that he is, and all that he will be..

to know him from head to toe...

every eyelash

every curly hair....

Every tooth.. that seem to be growing in far :)

every laugh & giggle..

Thanks God, :) your awesome... Now lets work together to make a Girl :)
