Catie, Emma and Naomi share the second one.  And I didn't take a picture but finally (8 months later) Naomi's cross-stitch birth announcement is hanging up.  =)

cookie monster

so, the other day I had made choc chip cookies and was holding Naomi while wiping the counter (side note: ants are the bane {well, one of them} of my existence lately) and tidying up.  A couple minutes later Beka said something about me giving Naomi a biscuit.  I couldn't understand what she was saying until I looked at Naomi.  She had a cookie in her hand and was happily munching away.  Apparently as I cleaned she got close enough to the cookie jar to grab one.  I told Josh about it and he thought it was funny.  Tonight as we ate cookies for dessert he held one in front of Naomi to see what she would do.  She grabbed it and promptly shoved it in her mouth.  Guess it's a good thing I'm planning a milk and cookies themed birthday for her.  =)

not quite so exciting

So, I've been spending some time cleaning my kitchen cupboard handles with 0000 steel wool.  Not very exciting and kinda hard (cuz i'm too lazy to take them off) but it is nice to see them all clean.  Makes the unclean ones look super grody though.  

It seems 10 years is the limit for house stuff lately.  My oven is starting to fail.  Josh has had to fix it two or three times this year.  The washing machine might be starting to fail but we were able to purchase a newer model for a lot cheaper so have a replacement.  My sink garbage disposal has given up the ghost so we are replacing it.  And we're working on redoing some of the stained woodwork around the house too.  Josh has already done the back door and it looks so good.  hmmm...there's a picture of that somewhere.  I should find that.  
I've found a couple home projects for Josh and he has lovingly agreed to do them.  Soon I'll have shelves to hold laundry baskets in my laundry cupboard and small shelves to help with cookie sheets, baking pans, casserole dishes in my kitchen.  I'll have to take pictures of those and share them when they get done too.

not almost anymore

I wrote Thursday, Friday and Saturday's posts on Thursday night.  The picture of Naomi almost sitting up published this morning.  So what did she do this afternoon?  yep, she started pushing herself up into a full sitting position and sitting there for longer than she has before.  just has to show me up.  =)


Naomi can almost go from "crawling" to sitting.  almost.

brotherly love

I grabbed the kids camera to take the picture of my pincushion and when I put the photos on my computer I found more photos the kids took the other morning.  How cute are my babies??  =)
