Mike here...If you enjoy listening to books while you drive, you will love Hannah Coulter. I recently downloaded this free audio book and began listening to it on our way to MS last week. Mariah and I were automatically hooked. Mariah and the kids stayed an extra week with her parents so I made the 8 hour hike back to Louisville by myself. I couldn't wait to get back into the car to see what happens next in the small town of Port William. For 1/3 of the trip I had a hard time driving b/c of being teary eyed, I can only imagine what the people passing me thought!. Anyway you should check this out.

My new bookshelves

We've had LOTS of DIY projects this month and I can't wait to post some pictures of the transformation of our home. This is the newest (and cheapest) DIY project that Mike did for me Thursday. He built some bookshelves for the basement out of rain gutters... yes, you read right gutters. I think they turned out really great and just wanted to share!

3 months Old

I can't believe that yesterday our baby girl turned 3 months old. The time is flying by so so quickly! Here's our pretty girl. She's getting stronger and much more curious about the world around her. What a sweet blessing you are little Gloria!

2 Month Pics

I know I'm really late with this one, but here are some 2 month pics of Gloria.

Stats of 2 month check up:
Height - 22 1/2 inches (50%)
Weight - 12 lbs. 9 1/2 oz (75-90%)

My smily baby girl

Baby girl has been smiling for weeks now and I finally caught some on camera last week. She is getting so big so quickly. She started sleeping in the big crib in hers and Madeline's room this past week. She loves it in there especially if Maddie's in there with her. She never cries one bit if Madeline is in her bed when I put Gloria down for the night. Even if she is wide awake and not super sleepy quite yet, she will just lay there while Maddie sings or talks to her. It's really so sweet!

Almost laughing in this pic
She adores her big sis
Beautiful smily baby girl!

My Cool little Boy

I know I'm partial but I think I have one of the coolest little boys on earth! He is at a fun stage where he's putting the world together and starting to be able to communicate so much. Here are two of my favorite recent pics of him.

This is how he likes to go to bed. He has to have all these stuffed animals and if you leave one out he knows which one is missing (yes, even the pink hippo). He also has to sleep with a basketball and football.
All smiles driving the tractor at Hubers.... I think our family was meant for a farm not city life sometimes.
