Snow Dog! 0

White Stuff.

It really snowed! Leave it to Ada to lock us out of the house when it’s 10 degrees outside with a foot of snow on the ground. We were going to go out and play for just a few minutes. Our old Victorian door knob has this strange lock where you push a button on the door jamb area of the door to turn the lock on. It stays locked and you can open the door from the inside, but once...

Two Weeks & Three Days. 5

Two Weeks & Three Days.

Today was kind of a stressful day.  Apparently I cannot make a relaxed, chill baby. I guess there’s always hope for a fourth baby to be an “easy” one?  Haha! I can do everything while holding the baby except for cook.  And I am hungry.  Really hungry.  Thus, frustration. (Well I don’t hold him while I use the bathroom either, but that only takes a minute.  Cooking takes a bit more time.) Rosie loves holding him, but he screams unless he...

Rosie’s Birthday! 0

Rosie’s Birthday!

I had my midwife appointment today.  Baby H is all happy and snug down in there. Rosie and Ada were so active in the womb–both of them kicked, flip flopped around, jabbed me, poked me, and even did something that felt like clawing me to pieces.  Baby H doesn’t do any of that.  He just wiggles and pokes his butt up. I imagine he thinks my womb is his man cave.  I’m certain he’s in there chilling out.  He stretches and...

Right. 1

Right.

It’s…July! JULY. I might have a baby in the month of July. “Might” being the key word of course.  His official due date based on the dating ultrasound is the 1st of August.  Rosie and Ada were both born at 39 weeks, but watch this little guy fake me out and make me wait until 42 weeks or something.  That would continue the trend of this being the longest pregnancy ever. I’m hoping for July 27 or 28.  Rosie’s due date...

Luna Moth. 2

Luna Moth.

Yesterday I was having a bad morning.  As in, everything possible was going wrong. I went outside on my porch to sulk in a rocking chair and look what fluttered up and landed on the cabin wall right by my head! A gorgeous male luna moth! They’re fairly rare.  I’ve always wanted to see a live one and never have.  They hatch, mate for about 24 hours, then lay their eggs at the base of black walnut trees. They have no...

The Demise of Benny Duck. 0

The Demise of Benny Duck.

We had a tragedy over here the other night. Benny was fine when I went out in the snow and wind to put the roosters up for the night.  (I put the roosters in a dog crate covered with a thick rubber backed rug in the garage to block their crows in the morning for the neighbors.  It works very well.) Benny got injured while we were at the beach back in October.  He got a random string wrapped around his...

Allergy Testing Results & Pictures. 4

Allergy Testing Results & Pictures.

The allergy testing for Ada yesterday afternoon wasn’t nearly as bad as I thought it would be. When Rosie had it done at age four she cried and sobbed through the pricks. Ada on the other hand…laughed.  Why am I not surprised?  Typical Ada. (Ada also loves the finger prick for iron testing because she gets to see her “real blood!” and she gets a bandaid.) We also go to weigh and measure her, which hasn’t been done in awhile.  She...

Bread Machine Recipe & Pictures of the Girls.

The other day I took the girls to Goodwill because it was really hot and we were bored.  I found a new bread machine with wrapping still on it for $6! I used to have a bread maker, but Tyler wouldn’t eat the bread out of it because he didn’t like the way it was shaped.  Yes, seriously.  So I gave it away to an older lady who had arthritic hands and could no longer knead bread.  She was super appreciative so I didn’t...

When Super Heroes Attack. 0

When Super Heroes Attack.

Today was another scorching day outside.  There was wind, but it felt like a furnace blowing.  It almost felt like the wind could burn your skin. Of course this is nothing compared to the western states actually burning on fire, but still…it was very hot here. The girls love to play outside in almost all kinds of weather, as long as it’s not pouring cold rain, but this weather for some reason irritates Rosie’s very mild asthma.  She doesn’t have trouble...
