Today is my baby's first birthday. I really can't believe it. He has four teeth, has finally decided that food is good to eat, although he still likes paper a lot. He is taking up to 10 steps on his own, loves balls, and water. He loves being outside and watching his siblings play. He doesn't say any real words. He sort of says Momma, but not regularly and he doesn't exactly call me that. He waves bye bye and very rarely gives kisses. He is still a bit of a cryer, a poor sleeper, and human Klingon, but we LOVE him so much. I can't imagine our lives without him. Here are a few pictures to highlight his first year.
I am a child of God, a wife of 20 years, a homeschooling mom of 6 wonderful children, a daughter, a sister, and a friend.
My family moved last year 500 miles away from home where we had a wonderful life with family, friends, and church family. We are trying to find our way and settle down in our new home. I keep looking for a new normal, but God has a sense of humor, and I am not sure it exists.
I started this blog as a way to let our family and friends at home know a little about what we are up to in our new place, but it has become a scrapbook for me of our life and what the kids have been up to.
