Miles is usually up by 6 am but on Christmas the big boys were up before him, which means we were all up way to early…. They went to wake him up and man he was a mess, in the best way possible.

I sat down to do a few things on my computer tonight….which rarely happens. I have high hopes of designing a website and actually got to scrape the surface on that, yay for progress!! Life is busy with 3 kids, way busier than I could ever have imagined. I’m “in the trenches” so to speak and know that this investment into the lives of my kids is paying off but there’s no time to write all about that because my baby just woke up and my husband is still at work on a Friday night at 10:50 (startin’ the weekend off with a bang ;)) so I’ll keep it short and sweet and hopefully have a chance to do a proper photo shoot and write up for my favorite 3 year old.

He’s serious and silly, stubborn and kind….but man he’s really stubborn…eli3_-2He’s beautiful.eli3_-4eli3_-13eli3_He’s brave, he’s funny. He loves the Wizard of OZ and still struggles to get through the whole alphabet song. He knows his colors and can pretend with the best of them. He cares about babies and likes to hold slimy worms straight from the ground. He’s wild and shy, he makes all the colors brighter.


Miles is 8 months old and to quote Isaac “8 months, no way!! He sure is growing up fast!” I would have to agree. He’s basically a 21 pound turtle…While I have hundreds of adorable pictures to post I will share this one…stay weird my friends. Miles 8 months

This psalm has been looping through my brain all day…….so much to take in.


1I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.

2My soul will make its boast in the LORD; The humble will hear it and rejoice.

3O magnify the LORD with me, And let us exalt His name together.

4I sought the LORD, and He answered me, And delivered me from all my fears.

5They looked to Him and were radiant, And their faces will never be ashamed.

6This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him And saved him out of all his troubles.

7The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear Him, And rescues them.

8O taste and see that the LORD is good; How blessed is the man who takes refuge in Him!

9O fear the LORD, you His saints; For to those who fear Him there is no want.

10The young lions do lack and suffer hunger; But they who seek the LORD shall not be in want of any good thing.

11Come, you children, listen to me; I will teach you the fear of the LORD.

12Who is the man who desires life And loves [length of] days that he may see good?

13Keep your tongue from evil And your lips from speaking deceit.

14Depart from evil and do good; Seek peace and pursue it.

15The eyes of the LORD are toward the righteous And His ears are [open] to their cry.

16The face of the LORD is against evildoers, To cut off the memory of them from the earth.

17[The righteous] cry, and the LORD hears And delivers them out of all their troubles.

18The LORD is near to the brokenhearted And saves those who are crushed in spirit.

19Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the LORD delivers him out of them all.

20He keeps all his bones, Not one of them is broken.

21Evil shall slay the wicked, And those who hate the righteous will be condemned.

22The LORD redeems the soul of His servants, And none of those who take refuge in Him will be condemned.

4 months_


This guy is fit as a fiddle! 16 lbs 8 oz. 26.5 inches long. He is happy for the most part but HATES the car. The kid cannot stand being in the car and I can’t stand being in there with him either. Typical of my boys. They basically hate life until they can run. Active, active, not a good sleeper still up about 3 or 4 times a night but goes back to sleep easily (thank God). He is sweet as a lump of sugar and I tell him that his sugars are in his cheeks, I love his dimples. He watches everything and pays attention to us all the time especially when we eat. He tried his first food, pear and is eating rice cereal. He is almost rolling from back to belly and pivots around when he’s on his tummy (also know as his Bell Bell :)) 4 months_-2 4 months_-3miles 4 months-2miles 4 monthsmiles 4 months-3miles 4 months-4miles 4 months-5miles 4 months-6
