jaima tied to buy a missile site on ebay! she was on the computer and all of a sudden i hear cody yell,"what are you doing?!" here is the link

silly kids! good thing i have everything else blocked on the computer!

will post pictures soon - i have been so busy cleaning and decluttering - also got my new bedroom furniture set up finally! was delivered the day jaiden was born

she is getting so big and strong - loves to look around - laughs, smiles and coos and makes me the happiest mama!

i gave my two weeks notice to the hospital - and am now officially a full time wife and mother -and really feel that God led me to this place in my life - so i can "be still and know that He is God"

life is good.

catching up

Well, I certainly have been busier than i ever thought i would be! i had dreams of sitting around, playing with the baby and having plenty of time to read, update this and nap - instead i go go go all day! and i love it!

John had a plow day last saturday - a lot of old 2 cylinder tractors - and a lot of old boys having fun!

Jaiden is growing - hard to believe she is a month old today! She will be baptized tomorrow - with lots of friends and family there to witness! Grandma Austa is here from Arkansas!

My baby is growing!

Jaiden is getting so big! I think she has a double chin already!
I called the doctor this morning and talked to a nurse - she said that i should just keep doing what i have been doing with Jaiden - vaporizer, suctioning her nose, saline drops - and that since she has not run a fever, not to worry - my immunity should protect her. She seems to be better today - and has been more alert. She has even begun to make little baby noises and is starting to find her hands!
It is very windy today - there is dust blowing across the farm yard. Which means it is coming in the house - I have learned to dust when company is coming and that is it - because as soon as i have finished it is dusty again!
I find it so amazing, the love I have for my children - they are all so unique, and yet part of me! Cody watched Jaiden last night so I could run to Walmart. John said he came in the house and cody had her on his chest. He loves his sisters! We are really trying with Jaima - she has been a little naughty lately and I am really trying to be patient - she is so much like me it is unreal!

well, i certainly am not keeping up very well!

I am exhausted - mentally and physically - but am doing as well as can be expected! Harvest is almost over and then John will just have to help me more!

I am using the office computer because the laptop is trashed from the lemonade incident. i spent the afternoon cleaning up this computer and setting my user settings - jaima has been talking my ear off, i am surprised she has a voice left!

Both of the girls have colds - will have to take Jaiden to the doctor tomorrow - for now, i am running the vaporizer and limiting any contact with people outside of the family - so no visitors until i find out what she has. I pray for both of them to be comforted and to heal quickly. Jaiden is not even three weeks old yet - and I am hoping my breast milk will supply immunity to her.
The weather has turned colder. I love this time of year - except for the time change - that always messes up our schedules the first week!
My parents came up friday evening - mom cooked fried chicken and potato salad - dad did puzzles with jaima - cody played guitar for us - and we ate apple and peach pie til we couldn't eat anymore - pie is also GREAT for breakfast! It was so good to spend time with them - wish i could see them more.
I better get my list made - will have to go the store and get back in an hour in case Jaiden wakes up and wants to eat!
