10 Months

Noah is 10 months old today! He learned to clap a few weeks ago and I thought this was a cute video. He looks like he has ants in his pants at the beginning. :)

13 Weeks


I realize that I haven't been publishing any really great, informative, helpful posts lately. And to be perfectly honest I probably won't for a good long while. Blogging has kind of taken a back seat since we started school, as I think it should. I'm busy with other, more pressing matters. :) Anyway, my updates will mostly be pictures and things that the children are doing. I realize that some of you may be bored by that and I won't be offended if you decide to go find a more interesting blog to read! Though if you do I will certainly miss you. I like comments. Speaking of comments, all of you wonderful family members out there are more than welcome to leave comments! We love to hear your input too. :)


I do plan to start posting our meal plans again starting next week (I hope). I haven't been feeling well enough to plan meals. It's kind of hard to do when anything having to do with food sounds really disgusting. Noah has been helping me out with meals, as you can see in the pictures! I'm 13 weeks today though, so expect to start feeling perfectly normal any minute now. :) I had my first OB appointment last week, which went really well. I'm not anemic like I suspected and everything looks great! I usually only have one ultrasound at 20 weeks, but I had mixed up my dates (you'd think I'd have this figured out by my sixth pregnancy!) and we weren't exactly sure how far along I was. So they did an ultrasound last week and the baby...yes, only one...looks wonderful!

Down on the Farm

We went to a nearby pumpkin farm with Grandma and some friends yesterday. We went to a different one last year, but this one was closer and a lot more fun! They had a corn maze, pig races, a big yellow "jumping pillow", a petting zoo, hay rides, a playground, a zip line, and several other attractions. We didn't get to do all of them because we didn't realize that they closed at 1:00. I think we'll just have to go back with Adam!











The jumping pillow was so much fun! Hannah was a little scared to do it by herself, so I jumped with her on my back and Noah in the Ergo. Noah was giggling the whole time. :)

Adam's Workout

Sometimes Adam will go running in the morning and other times he'll exercise on the elliptical. But I think that this is his favorite workout routine. :)

Not Working

I've been trying to upload a video all day and Blogger is not cooperating with me. So here are a few random pictures for now! We've been studying about birds in science and we hung two bird feeders out with two different types of birdseed so that we could see what kinds of birds were attracted to which seed. Pardon Esther's wild hair. I had put foam rollers in the girls' hair before church on Saturday night, and this picture was taken the following Monday. It's just slightly out of control!
