3 1/2 months

Eliza Faith now 3 1/2 months old. Where has the time gone?

She has gotten much happier the last couple of days. I hope it stays. She has been a very hard fussy baby.
But pictures like this just show how sweet she really is.
She loves to be held and never put down!!!! I guess if I could be carried around every where I would do it too. Sweet baby girl!!!!

New furniture

I love this chair. It is soooo big it is almost as big as the loveseat. It reclines and is nice to have when I am needing to nurse Eliza.
Couch with cute little Daniel

This is the first brand new set of furniture that we have bought in our entire marriage. We looked for a while but you can never really know what you really want. But we really like them. They are comfortable and I am not having to deal with fixing the couch covers on them 100 times a day. The couches that we had were given to us by some friends and they weren't new with them either. So they were pretty worn and we of corse with 7 kids have worn them out pretty bad. Do you like them????

against my wishes

Okay Tom thinks that Eliza is ready for some food. I think that she is too young but he thinks that I have some subconscious issues about her eating food. We had some food in the house that a friend of his from work sent home. He made the cereal and she had a few bites. I think she liked it she had a few bites but then started spitting it out. She is only 3 months old. But Nathan was 3 months when I tried it with him because she just was not satisfied with anything. I wish you all could have seen him at that age. He loved real food and couldn't get enough. I made a big bowl of cereal and he ate the whole thing. I thought he was going to explode. She may want it but she will be the last an I guess I am trying to keep her young as long as possible. I don't know. She already does things that make her seem like she isn't' a baby any more. She practically sits up all by her self. She never wants to be cuddled. She seems so big and old but she really is only 3 months old. Tom fed this stuff to her all against my wishes. In fact it was totally behind my back. I didn't even take the pictures. Aaron did. What do you think. Too young to get food? Or am I just being mean denying my kid what she wants?

Lynn Meadows Discovery Center

So they had a free day at the children's museum so we thought we would go and enjoy the day together.
The kids had such a good time there. It was hot outside so it was nice to have something fun to do out of the sun.
And the best part was we didn't have to pay for it. Things like that add up for us when you have 7 kids.

This by far is my favorite picture of the whole day. This was a thing that you could take a ball and suspend it in the air because of air being forced out of the hole. Emma found it very funny to that it distorted her face.

Pest or beauty to watch??

It looks as if they are just nice and pretty to watch. But don't be deceived.
As soon as you open anything that has food in it they have this homing device that says they need to hang around in case any kid drops a chip or something. And they can't take a hint at all. As I recall we have never had good experiences with these birds. My brother got pooped on by one. We called that bird Charlie and it has been a joke of the family ever since. I wish they could just stay out there in the ocean taking care of dead fish and all, far far away from my food, my kids, and especially my sleeping baby.

Sunscreen anyone? NOT

This is why you should #1 not buy clear sunscreen
#2 not apply it at the beach
#3 not apply it when the wind is blowing very hard
This is what we have learned #1 apply sunscreen at house before we get to beach
#2 never ever buy clear sunscreen because you can't be quit be sure where you are getting
#3 never say oh I will be okay my legs never get sun on them(that would be me the mother who said such a dumb thing and every night I got up to feed the baby I would die because when the blood would come to my legs my legs would throb they hurt so badly)

A whole week later and we are just now not complaining any more about someone accidently rubbing against a shoulder or a leg
