Three Months.

Well if I'm on here then you know something instrumental has happened. 

Yes. My little man is 3 months old now. I think I say this all the time, but time seems to really be flying and on the other hand seems like I've been a mom for a long time. Anyone else like that? 

This has been the best three months! It just keeps getting better and better by his guy is so fun! I even find myself (even Bobby) ready to get up in the morning to see him. Rocking him is so sweet! Just can't get over his laughs and smiles! 





Isn't he the best?? 

And a little growth comparison!!

One Dozen Babies.

Life just happens sometimes. It doesn't go as planned but you just roll with the punches. This summer has been one of those non planning times. 

Starting with a son, we just roll with it. I like to have plans, but sometimes those plans have to be readjusted. Asa does so good and just goes where we go. We just have to plan accordingly. Like make sure you have the diaper bag... loaded with diapers, wipes, change or clothes, burp clothes.... 

Another unplanned event this summer was more babies. I had 9 months to plan for the one we've been trying for, but didn't really want any more. Now we have 11 more join the gang this morning! Sage, our black Catahoula, is now the proud momma or 11 little pups. 




She had been digging a cavern under the Yanmar (our little tractor we now the lawn with!), but I didn't anticipate them until the end of the month. 

I guess she knew that was a bad time for us so she went ahead and had them! Praise The Lord. One less thing to plan around!! 

I got the pups and Sage moved to the dog house. Hopefully she won't smother them now!! 

That's the news around here! Just enjoying the scattered showers and babies!! 

Two Months.

Our little boy is getting big. 




Now he is 14 pounds 12 ounces and 24 1/2 inches tall! 

Time flies!! And boys grow like weeds!! 

Here's to your 3rd month Mr. Asa! 


(Sorry this didn't get posted. Only a couple weeks late!)

Etsy Projects.

My sister and I are looking into things we want to make to add to our etsy shop. We want to keep with the theme of baby stuff.. And since our lives are full of babies, it makes perfect sense and is something we get to use as well. 

Speaking of getting to use myself, I've started making crib sheets and changing pad covers. To do a little practice.. Or trial and error, if you will... I decided to make some for myself. I am thrilled with how they turned out and can wait to make some custom ones in the future. 

The crib sheet. 




And the changing pad cover! 



I just love this fabric. It is perfect for my little man's room! 

Check our shop out!!

Newborn Pictures.

Here are a few of Asa's newborn shots. I love how they turned out!!

Asa's Quilt.

My mom had been hand quilting for a while now. She started making us graduation present quilts, then wedding quilts, and now we get baby quilts. We love them so much! She calls these her 'heirloom' quilts since she hand quilts them and they take such a long time and lots of hours to make. Plus we will have them forever. 

She now machine quilts as well, but we cherish all the hours and prayers over this  quilt and over our sweet boy while quilting his quilt!! 

Here is Asa's quilt! 




You can see she quilted arrows and deer prints in the borders. Perfect for our little 'bear'! (We call him Asa Bear a lot since his middle name is Barret. Plus he growls and grunts a lot too!)



We've used it to play on a couple times!! I'm sure we get tons of use out of it! 

Thank you mom!! 

As a side note, I would link to her blog where she posts all her quilts, but don't know how to from my phone. Sorry!

One Month.

Time is flying by here. I cannot believe my baby is a month old!! My life has completely changed this past month. I feel like I'm on an extended vacation. I'm totally enjoying being a stay at home mom, soaking up every second of time with this kid. 


This month we took our new born photos. This is just a sneak peek. I will post the pics once I get them back. This was just a quick shot I took during our session. 


And we got published! My dad's good friend writes an article in the Livestock Weekly. He mentioned our sweet bundle in the June 5 issue. 


We are super alert and love looking around at everything!! 


We celebrated Dad's first Father's day! 


Got dressed up a few times! 




And slept a bit!





Now we're a month old!! Such a Big boy!!


12 pounds, 1 ounce and 23 inches long!! Growing like a weed!! 


Here's to many more happy months!!
