Eleanor Jayne at 8 months

She loves to play on the floor.
Except if she see's Mommy. If in fact she see's Mommy, she will scream and scream until I, like the well trained Mommy that I am will pick her up. I receive a big smile and a slobbery kiss.

If mommy tries to sit with her and cuddle, she will scream again until I stand up. She is then happy and will pull my hair to show affection.

She wakes up usually 2x a night to nurse. But the past 3 nights it has been more like 4 to 6x times. mommy is tired.

She sits up, crawls and loves to stand on our laps.

She gives huge smiles to all of her family.

She will kiss but is stingy, making them prized by all.

She loves chocolate. Takes after her Mom ;)

We are so blessed by her.

And here she is

Sorry hubby has been out of town so I have not had much time for being online. He is home now so I should be able to pop in more often.

Here are the new August kits over at SD4U. I am playing with the bloom & grow kit. So adorable.

I will share my peeks soon :)

I'm back

I had fun being hostess over at the SD4U blog last week.

How was your 4th? We had a wonderful weekend. Friday we bbq'd and went swimming with friends. Then Saturday we went to a friends house for a BBQ then went to watch fireworks. They were unfortunately canceled (probably due to the economy) but we had some of our own and we let all the teenagers put on a show for us:) Yesterday was church and then I took my oldest out shopping for casual business clothes. He is going out on a few jobs with hubby. We are so happy to have found a church and make some friends. They have just embraced us into their fold.

I have a card up over at the Core'dinations blog. yep, they have a blog. So be sure to pop over 3x a week for new projects!

Have a great Monday!

Here is our family 4th picture. Keep in mind how hard it is to get 12 people looking and smiling! So it is not perfect but we are glad to have a 4th picture of all of us for the past 10 years!

Still MIA but...

I wanted to share some of my projects from 3 Scrappy Boys :)

I did a bunch more but they will be in the newsletter going out next week.

(I added the piece of green swiss dot paper from my stash.)The love was cut using my Cricut. For the yellow scallop I used a piece of Core'dinations cardstock from my scrap box. I sanded the edges to give it a lighter color.
