Super Mom

I feel like I'm trying to be super mom. I am responsible for my job at SOJO, cooking dinner, cleaning house, caring for the 2 boys -- Joe and Jace ... and NOW I am trying to start rollin' with Stampin Up! again. I plan on staying home for several years. I miss Jace. This is the main cause of me pusing Stampin' Up! again ... (besides the fact that I LOVE to stamp!) My first workshop is on Saturday and I am madly trying to get ready for it. I have spent the last 2 days preparing options for my lovely hostess, Lyney to choose from. I have about a million other things that I have to do to get ready, but I am excited and I hope it goes well. My goal is to get at least 2 bookings from hers and to just watch it skyrocket. Thanks Lyns for throwing the party!! I'm looking forward to it!!

(If you want to see my samples, check out my other blog here! If you want to host a workshop .... LET ME KNOW!!!

7 months

7th months came and went ... I can't believe how fast time has gone. Jace is doing very well. He is growing and eating, and being a perfect little baby. We get stopped in the stores all of the time and everyone comments on how beautiful he is. His eyes are gorgeous ... look at those dimples ... everyone loves Jace.

At 7 Months I can ...

Jace is growing so fast. When he turned six months it was like ... CHECK! I can sit up now. He will sit until he decides to fall. He has his bottom two teeth and is getting two more on the top -- the ones next to the middle two. He loves to be on his belly and will climb up on his knees and rock back and forth. Crawling is meer days away ... my world is about to drastically change. He currently LOVES to say MAMAMAMAMA or PAPAPAPAPA. He generally only doees it when he is getting upset and/or tired. He loves to eat his little cereal bites and his teething biscuts. He hasn't gotten fussy with his teeth or lost sleep over it. He is the highlight of our life and we love him dearly

Trying on what COULD have been my Halloween Costume

I'm the oldest ... I get all of the pictures.

Some of you Know ... Some Don't ... regardless .......

The outcome isn't pretty.

It took us 7 years to get pregnant with Jace. He is a perfect child. We love him more than our hearts have room for, but somehow we love him more and more each day.

On labor day this year we found out we were expecting baby #2! We were so excited to have made one without the use of any drugs :) We were very scared about the idea of having two babies 13 months apart, but were preparing for the challenge.

Unfortunately, today it ends. We are saddened, but we have survived this before and can do it again. Jace will be a big brother some day ... but not in April.
