Slacking is not the term

I have not been on and in a way it feels like slacking, but at the same time I have been focusing on my family. Geo has been doing a lot better and getting so big. He is almost eight months and is crawling, sitting up, and getting into anything he can. SerahAnne is will be four in a month and has been blossoming into a beautiful little lady. She still loves her fancy dresses, purses, and pink. David will be five in 18 days. We are having a small get together the weekend before for him. We can not give him much, but he loves all presents so I'm sure he will be fine. I am also now pregnant with our fourth bundle of joy. I am due the same day Geo was born. So I will have another set just a year apart. I feel very blessed. I do not have insurance still and have found a wonderful midwife that is going to attend my birth at home. We will be finding out what we are having the day of delivery and it will be a wonderful day. Please still keep your prayers and thoughts with us. I hope to be able to keep you updated more now that things are (slightly) calming down.

I know it's been a while

So it came to my attention I have really been slacking so here is a short update. The reason I have been slacking is I have a new job. I am a housekeeper for a family and getting good pay. DH is working on getting a certification to be able to get a good job in his field while he finishes school. Geo is doing very well. He has his two bottom front teeth now, has rolled over from stomach to back, and his colic is starting to get better. Hope you like the update. Hopefully there will be more sooner.

My greatest blessings

The greatest thing that God has blessed me with is my children. While there have been times I have wondered how we are going to make it. And even though I did not plan them all I can not imagine my life with out them. God knew just what I needed and when I needed it. He has been with me and is showing me how to be a good mom, though I always feel I can do better. I am glad that we can just go in their rooms and play and have a great time and they are not upset and disappoint they don't get to go to Pump it Up, Monkey Joes, Chuck E Cheese, the Zoo, and so on. While I take them when I can it is not as often as I know that most kids would like. But I am very grateful that my kids don't mind and love me the same. Thank you God for my blessings.

Which cereal is best

So we ran out of rice cereal and someone had given us oatmeal cereal but we have found that it does not dissolve as well and cakes up the bottle and you have to adjust the nipple. So now I'm wondering which cereal is best. Will the others do differently as well? How many different kinds are there? How are they made? Could they be contaminated with things he shouldn't have? Do you know any of these answers? if so please let me know.

Need more money

I have started babysitting and making a little money that way. And doing some odds and ends but I am still needing more money, to be able to catch up on things and not loose our means of transportation to get the kids to their doctors apts. I have not had luck with KnottyNykki, but I am not going to be taking it down in hopes that something will come of it in time. I am going to start selling Pampered Chef, and hopefully be able to get the rest of the money we need to be able to survive and breathe.

Thoughts of a mom

At the end of it all your kids wont care if they had desinger clothes, was able to take gymnastics, able to go on vacations to the Grand Canyon or Bahamas. They will not care that they stayed at home while others went to the movies, they did not eat pizza every night, or that you were more strict on them than other parents.
In the end all they will care about is you reading to them or watching TV with them. That even when you were tired and wanted to go to bed you cleaned the house so they were not living in filth. That even though dinner was late they got to help you and you taught them how to make their favorite meal. That you taught them how to play using just their imaginatoin and a stick to be able to save the princess and beat the magic dragon.
In the end the only thing your kids will care about is that you loved them and were there for them.

Well it seems to be working

We have had to play around with how much cereal and how much formula to give him at once but he has not vomited since The beginning of the month. I guess that I will not need a second option after all. He has been a little fussy, but I am wondering if it is not because of starting to teeth. I can't believe that he is 3 months old now.
