My Big Girl

Rhem has been telling me, “Mom, I not a baby! Hadi is a baby, I a big girl!” and (sadly) she is right. At the beginning of this month we started Preschool back up, She loves to learn and sing songs and knows majority of her letters, shapes, colors, and numbers now. She also has so many songs memorized, one being “Never Ever Getting Back Together” by Taylor Swift. (I don’t even know how she learned that song, considering we rarely listen to music that isn’t worship/Christian music)

Rhem is OBSESSED with dresses, and that is all she wants to wear. (skirts count as dress too, according to her) She is honestly an amazing help around the house and the best big sister. My mom said the other day she picked up up from bible school and all the kids were running out the door to their parents to leave, and Rhem was happily cleaning up by herself and telling “Nena” to hold on because she needs to clean up the toys. She is becoming such a beautiful soul and child. I love watching her play and learn and grow. She of course has her moments of tantrums and attitude but most of the time she is my sweet baby big girl Rhemi.

Wait, what? My baby is SEVEN MONTHS already?!!?

Little miss Hadi has turned 7 months old. Where has time gone?!

She loves to stick her tongue out. She loves to talk up a storm. She is crawling EVERYWHERE and getting into EVERYTHING. and I love every moment of it. She has also been trying to pull herself up when holding onto the coffee table or couch. She is wearing size 12m and 18m clothes already and has started eating some solid foods. (we skipped the baby food and went to baby led weaning and let her have some baby cereal puffs, baby biscuits, veggie and fruit melts, toast, and small pieces of soft fruit)t

Love you my sweet, sweet Hadiley.

(tomorrow I will do an update on Rhem so she isn’t left out lol)


A dream come true

First. So sorry, I have been gone for nearly 2 months. I have been so busy with the hustle of summer and we still don’t have our Wifi fixed so I haven’t spent much time at the computer, definitely not enough to update. But summer has come to an end and I have so much to catch up on. So I will hopefully be able to get back in the rhythm of updating daily. (or at least weekly lol)

Yesterday, one of my dreams came true. I met a family that has been a a huge inspiration to me and insight in how I want to raise my children. That family is The Duggars, from TLC’s show 19 kids and counting. I had gotten up Monday morning after a long weekend visiting friends who live 3 hours away. I was checking my facebook when one of my friends posted that she was excited to see the duggars at an event taking place near her house. I immediately needed all the details. Long story short, I raced to get ready and loaded my family back in the car for an hour and 45 minute trip. I got to meet Michelle and Jim Bob as well as watch their kids play some music. Michelle and Jim Bob also talked about raising kids after God’s own heart, and how they manage to have 19 kids. The are such a sweet, amazing family. I hope that I get to see them again in the near future!
