About Me

My photo
I am a momma of 6 :) I have one grand-daughter who is 2 and a half and one who is 9 months!!...my youngest son is 6 months younger than the older one and 1 year older than the baby :) We homeschool and we are always on the go! I like to joke and say we are "addicted to chaos"! Long story short - we are parents of kiddos every age imaginable (almost) and like everyone else...We're learning as we go along! Thank the Lord...He's forgiving and LOVING - 'cause we're truly undeserving of all the wonderful gifts He's given to us!

Close to you.............

Well - Malachi has officially learned to walk. Yes...he is still spending much time on his forehead (and has the bumps and bruises to show for it)!
I had a shirt on him the other day that said "I do all my own stunts" and it seemed appropriate.
I on the other hand will buy stock in hair coloring because it's giving me many many greys watching him learn.
He has been teeting also with big teeth in the back so he has been klingy!!!! He has been up close and personal all week!
I was so upset last week as he seems to have ZERO interest in nursing anymore....but only can be tricked into it in the middle of the night or when he's gotten a boo boo (which then this week was OFTEN!) go figure. He is CERTAINLY the kiddo that has changed all my RULES about breastfeeding though - "just when you thought you knew what you were doing" sigh.....
but honestly - it's great that he will go to Daddy or Sissy if he needs comforting...I just don't like sharing :)LOL I'll get used to it....maybe....possibly not though......:)
I will confess though that I'm now looking ahead at possibly having another....possibly ;) Lord willing.....Hubby is all for it :) The kiddos are asking for twins (um...one at a time is fine with me thank you :)but we are praying about it.
Life is good....children are a blessing.....even little "snapping turtles" who walk at 10 months are just too wonderful :)

With all my heart !

What about you...did you have a "rule" about childbirth/childrearing that was suddenly shattered when you had your own little rule breaker for a baby?! LOL
tell me! tell me!


  1. LOL for that shirt!

    For your question, no rule we just let God be in control of our fertility if that makes any sense! We are not doing anything to make it happen (other then the way God intended us to make it happen)and not preventing it.

    Got to say little girl is turning 6 months soon and I'm stating to have baby fever, but trust in the Lord's timing :-)

  2. You're such a good mama ;)
    My "breastfeeding rule" was 2 years. Now I have a 10 month old who is NOT interested!!!
    My first baby (now 23!!) was ONLY breastfed for 1 year and THEN I started regular ORGANIC only food. - sigh....Seems the rules change regularly and no one sends me the updates :)

  3. LOL that comment was in response to MRS. STAM - when I looked at it after posting...it looked like I was complimenting myself LOL

  4. I wanted to nurse for a year. I never wanted to give my babies a bottle of anything that wasn't breast milk. I was able to do that w/ my first, and made it to 10 months w/ my 2nd. But #3 & #4 brought a lot of stress to this body and they were weaned/weaned themselves at 5 months. Surprisingly, at that point I was not at all hesitant about using formula. It made for happier babies, happier Mommy, and an all-over happier household. :-) It's also been the same w/ the pacifier...with #1, 12 months was the cut off. #4 still has his for sleepy time and he's 16 months. :-)

  5. for breastfeeding rules, I let them self wean, so that means for us they do that when they are about 14-15 months and at that time am usually 5-6 months pregnant!

    So for the last 4 years I've been pregnant, nursing or both at the same time LOL
