continuing elsewhere

Life has gotten quite a bit busier (3 kids now!) and I no longer blog at this site. I DO, however, blog regularly with my sister over at Paisley Print Shoes. We blog about our personal lives, home decor, fashion, and food. We love it. Feel free to visit me (us!) there. Thanks so much for reading!

progression of a haircut

I think these photos from September are funny. She actually did really well with the whole thing - the pictures show otherwise. :-)

and adlee is off....

Adlee started crawling a couple weeks ago - she is now pulling herself up on everything and has even tried moving from one piece of furniture to the next, which usually results in landing on her head. :-) Anyway, I got this video a while back and have been neglecting my blog lately but I wanted to get this up there. It might be one of those things that only my parents like, but you do get a "Matea Original" song and a funny Dumb and Dumber quote at the end (which is the only reason I didn't crop this video, its pretty boring for a good 20 seconds).

I'll be trying to upload more photos and stuff soon....we've got my brother's wedding this weekend which is keeping this week pretty busy for us!

6 months

Happy 6 month birthday, Adlee!
I am so glad that today is here. I remember when Adlee was born I thought, "I can't wait till she is 6 months." I know a lot of you are screaming inside, "but they grow up so fast! enjoy the time when they are little!" and while I can appreciate the sentiment, I just really have a hard time with babies. Now that Adlee seems like a little person I am enjoying her so much more.

Adlee can sit, she grabs for stuff, she is eating cereal and other veggies now, and laughs a lot. I love it. Her spitting up has decreased by about a gallon each day. She is finally fitting into 3-6 month clothes. :-) It is fun to see her start to wear some clothes that Matea wore. And it is fun to see the two girls interact with each other. I hope they grow up to be best of friends like I am with my sister.

Assuming the next 6 months go as fast as the last 6 months I'm sure I'll be writing about Adlee's birthday before I know it! Crazy.

I am thankful for this life God has given me.

some pictures

Here are some updated pictures of the girls!
I did my most elaborate cornrows yet on Matea - I really was proud of myself. :-)

Adlee is getting more and more enjoyable every day! She "talks" to us often now and is pretty smiley. I love it.

We got Matea a bike and I think it was the best $30 we spent. :-) She is LOVING riding it! She has improved so much in the past week that the last few times we've gone out around the block I have to run because she is going too fast for me to walk. So I'm getting some good exercise too! (and in case you are wondering, I've got 6 pounds to go!)
That's all I've got for now, I just wanted to do a quick update since it has been a while!

house update

I know there a lot of you who have been praying for our house in Duluth to sell so I wanted to give you a quick update -

Last Friday (as in over a week ago) we got feedback from a showing that we had that someone was "very" interested in our house and was going to schedule a third showing for this past week. We never heard anything, and after checking with our realtor we came to find out that the potential buyer's real estate agent currently does not have her license due to the government state shut down. (We are assuming she needed it renewed and has been unable to get it renewed). This
would explain why she has been unable to schedule another showing this past week.

We are hopeful that the government will start back up soon and this potential buyer will put in an offer soon. The buyer also has the option to go with a different realtor if they so choose. Ultimately we are still trusting in God to provide for our needs as he has in the past. Just wanted to give you all an update so you can pray specifically.
