Busy Bees!

Did I mention I work at Down East Basics now?  Yup.  Just a seasonal job though.  Who knows WHAT I'll be doing after the end of December. I do work for my parents occasionally and I also just took on another job as an Au Pair Area director.  (still learning what it is I'm supposed to do)  I only need to make a couple hundred a month for us to pay our bills but, I like to have a little extra too.  Just in case I want to eat at Taco Bell from time to time. ha ha.

I should be preparing my Sunday lesson right now.  Boy am I going to be in trouble if I don't because I work at Down East tonight until closing and I'm wiped after work so...I better get going.

More pics of Lincoln...cuz let's face it.   I'm OBSESSED with this little guy!!!

Feeling Blessed

Of course this time of year, we always reflect on things we are thankful for and I have so much to be appreciative of, how could I not list them?!

In no particular order...well...maybe...

  1. My son
  2. My husband
  3. My home
  4. My husband's job
  5. Our cars
  6. My family (and how much they give of their free time to babysit Lincoln)
  7. My church (and calling)
  8. a space heater (for when I shower and want the bathroom to be toasty warm)
  9. My ability to breastfeed Lincoln
  10. Netflix (ha ha)
  11. My 3 jobs
  12. SLEEP! (which is very scarce these days but still amazing when I get it)
  13. Lincoln napping
  14. awesome fall/winter weather 
  15. Days off from work to spend with family
  16. Great co-workers
Ok, ok, the list could go on and on!  I'll stop there though.

Lincoln is now just over 6 months old.  Time seems to have flown by and yet dragged on and on.  People say that I shouldn't
wish for him to grow up but I'm sorry, I love that he is growing up and becoming a little independent boy.  I love seeing him discover the world around him and become more aware of his surroundings!  He is getting more of a personality and more playful.  His smile always brightens my day.  

He still isn't really rolling over yet but his new thing he loves to do, besides sit up, is to sleep on his side.  I think he is getting tired of sleeping on his back and I don't blame him!  I don't like to sleep on my back either!

As for Jordan, he is working lots and lots and doing some school on the side.  Kudos to him for being able to balance all that, his church calling, and have time for his family.  It's tough right now since I work, and he works, and goes to school; we don't get to hang out except for that small window of time we are laying in bed about to fall asleep.  Hopefully it doesn't last too long.  I miss my date nights and one on one time with my husband with out baby.
First trip to Costco sitting in the toddler spot.  He really enjoyed himself!
Sleeping in one of his warm sleeper outfits.  He is so freaking cute!
Doing Karie's nails while baby sleeps!
Bath time is usually lots of fun!
Getting read for our morning walks, Lincoln is being a ham.
Boy does he love to chew on everything!
Bumbo time
He always wants to sit up now.  None of this sitting back stuff.
