Stages Of Life

It’s a bittersweet moment. I seem to have a lot of those! I cleaned out my cupboard and threw away most of Micah’s bottles. I kept only a few to use until I get some more sippy cups. Those of you who never throw anything out may be horrified that I actually threw them in…

Tempted.

Micah is on the verge of walking. You know what comes before they officially walk: cruising…everything! With this stage comes the fact that he now realizes by standing he can reach things that have been out of his realm. (Oooh! What fun!) This opens up many opportunities for his Mommy and Daddy to lovingly teach…

Legacy In A Loaf

Baby Moses & Miriam

Picture a white Rubbermaid basket with 2 gray handles. It’s about 14 by 10 inches and maybe 12 inches deep. Now picture Abby & Micah…Micah in the basket & Abby pushing & tugging. Abby picked up Micah & put him in the basket. She gave him some toys and then began pulling him around the…

It’s The Little Things

I went grocery shopping this morning and I took Emmy & Micah along. Not because I wanted to, but because since I am their mother I sort of have a responsibility to care for them 24/7. So off we went, in the rain, to make 3 different stops to complete our shopping for a 2…
