Bess Fwenn




Did some product photography today, with some help from my favorite little model. She always says, "Mama, you're my bess fwenn!"  I soak in every moment with her.

She ended the evening on her 'tage, singing her new favorite song: Werewolves of London.  Seriously.  She had to take a couple of breaks to squeal at Sophie for throwing off her groove.  Remind you of anyone, Lindsay? ;)






I'm still just putting one foot in front of the other, hoping to be better soon.

My Itsy Bitsy


Yesterday, we spent just doing chores (mainly my much-larger-job-than-I-anticipated homeschool room redo) and relaxing.  The weather here has been so cold and rainy, all week!  While they would have loved to go play outside, we spent all day inside and bundled up in warm jammies.

Alice found the stash of rainbow mini candy canes, and ate about 10 all together.  I'm always thankful for anything she will willingly eat.  Oh yes... we are still struggling, even after 2 YEARS of feeding therapy and a surgery.  ;)

She is my little ray of sunshine.  I love to hear her sing, and the way she says everything.  I've never had a child her age without already having another baby... it's kind of like she gets to be my itsy bitsy for that much longer than the others did.  She gets to stay our baby.

Here We Go!


Here are five reasons why my life is wonderful.

We took this photo on the way to Christmas Eve Mass, and it was cold for these Houston babies!  I consider it a good omen that I have a decent photo of all five of my kids with absolutely NO photoshop head-swapping/compositing for the first time since Alice was born.  

We had a bumpy start this morning, but Adam turned it around by taking us out to Rainforest Cafe and seeing the new Annie movie at the theater.

My only New Year's Resolution is to write here everyday.  It's going to take me a long time, but I will, one by one, transfer over all of my Facebook postings and photos here too before I make it a skeletal thing.  I don't want Facebook to be my only family record anymore.  ;) 

Happy New Year!
