Creed has a serious attachment to his pacifiers. He wants them 24/7, but handles life without them when he’s up and about. Nap time and bedtime though – he did not want to give them up. He’s the oldest I’ve had still using one, but I’ve been dragging my feet on taking it away because […]
A flat tire and a quick trip to the ditch
Christmas Eve, Eden and Blaine rotated her tires. They put the best tread on the front (front wheel drive car) and the worse ones on the back. New tires were discussed but they were all still decent. This past Sunday, just over a week later, Eden got a flat tire on a rear tire. Somehow, […]
New Years Eve 2021
It’s been a hard, hard year. Found out I was pregnant with Lachlan in January 2021. We began pursuing CDL school for Blaine to prepare to move in March 2021. The house sold in April. Blaine finished his classes in May. We moved to South Dakota in June, planning to live briefly in the camper […]
This is the truck Blaine drives every day. He hauls grains from fields or elevators to ethanol plants and grain companies. The kids have almost all gotten to ride along once or twice. Liberty (18) works at a local grain elevator and has gotten to drive a semi a few times. She decided to get […]
Merry Christmas! I took only two photos. It was a lovely day of feasting and gifts and games and family, with a rousing discussion on why we get gifts when it’s a celebration of Jesus’ birthday. In the end Stellan was super confused, but thankful. He loves gifts. A lot. Blaine took this one. My […]
Snow. Ice. Happy children.
We got a bit of snow Friday, and the kids are thrilled with the new potential for fun. The ice in the fields is frozen, though the kids have strict instructions to stay away from the deeper sloughs for now. Liberty took some photos yesterday. Kids are worn out, bottoms are sore from hitting the […]
Lachlan: 3 months.
Lachlan Hyde is three months old today. He’s smiling all the time these days. He sleeps 6-8 hours through the night in a bassinet. He cringes when he sees big brother Creed coming. He’s not impressed with the magnitude of love Creed shows for him. He loves Momma best and barely tolerates everyone else. He […]
Snow hit South Dakota last week. It’s all but gone again, but at the first hint of snow, Charlotte built a snowman. He’s teeny. He had to be measured in inches, not feet. His “hat” is a hose clamp. She whittled a baby carrot down with her teeth to make it appropriate to the size […]
Lachlan Hyde: 10 weeks
Lachlan had his two month weight check last week. He tipped the scale at 12 pounds 15.5 ounces. He’s put on almost five pounds since birth. He’s sleeping through most nights 6+ hours, still just starting to think about smiling at me, filling out 3-6 month clothes nicely, and experiencing his first cold already. Poor […]
First Family (kids) Photo
The kids all lined up for me before church last week. Lachlan hardly cooperated… but darn it, first family photo accomplished.
