4 months old!

I owe this blog a VERY long update, but a quick one will have to be what I do for now...

We are doing well, just no time to blog.  A different season we are in for certain! Thought I'd post a quick pic I took this morning from my phone so you could see baby girl. Sooooo, this little, tiny baby we adopted as an embryo, who was not supposed to live, much less survive thawing is now 4 months old and 21# and very long wearing 12 month clothes comfortably. ; ) Gotta love it!  If I buy her anything at this point it will be 18 month for the Spring/Summer. She is rolling over, though with her big ol' self it takes a lot of work on her part ; ) She is smiling, laughing, and is just a joy to have with us.  Thank you Lord for blessing us with this precious girl.

Rhea's business is doing well which keeps my bookkeeping side of things busy too. D-man's Lyme Disease is close to remission and he is under a trial of being off medication right now.  Leevster is involved in building a scrap metal business, D-man is working to finish up high school and start driving this semester. BooBear is sewing, crocheting, knitting, and cooking. She is loving it all and is learning to balance and plan as she juggles all of her favorite activities. PookieBear is starting her "schooling" this semester and is loving to learn to read and write. In her spare time she plays in her doll house, colors, plays play-dough,  and helps me in the kitchen. She is truly a great sous chef and help to me. Her favorite past time though as it has been for 4 months straight is playing and spending time with her baby sister. If the baby is in her bouncy seat, Pookie is right there beside her!

Boobear looks strained in this picture holding baby girl...Well, 21# is a lot to haul around! She still doesn't have full head/neck control yet! ; ) She is a 4 month old in a 9 month old body!
