Ivy 7 Month's Old!

She's kind of a big deal. She loves her toes. She just loves to stare at me and watch me. And love to stare at her and watch her too! She just got 2 new teeth and she never even let me know they were coming. She is my angel from heaven. I love her so much!


Being patient with me while I learn how to use my new camera...
 Falling over slowly and doesn't ever care!...

 Look at those little teeth that snuck there way out...


 Those eyes...


 Those toes...
Love you baby girl.

Ivy 8 Month's Old!

GOSH I LOVE THIS BABY! She is getting the cutest personality and she finally learned to sit up all by herself! It's like overnight she got so big and even silly. She loves to blow bubbles and sticks out her tongue when she's happy. She jibber jabbers and she even said her first word! It was.... I don't want to admit it.... "DADA." BUT, she said "MAMA" the next day, so I feel okay about it. She gives me butterflies. I smell her all day and love to nuzzle her little warm neck. She is the best happiest baby!

She turned 8 months on Claire's 8th Birthday on June 18th. So, that's fun!

Ivy is the family celebrity. The kids all fight over holding her. They are all so sweet with her. Caleb is a little rough and thinks she wants to wrestle...
 I'm so lucky I get to squish them!!!...
 Easy to love...
 Hanging out at swimming lessons after a little nap. She is so sweet...
 Always happy. Always smiling...
 Ivy is the best cuddler. She gives real life hugs and kisses. She is at the best age!...
8 months came and went faster than a blink of an eye. Now that the hard newborn stuff is long gone, I really truly want her to stay this age forever. My baby.

Ivy 6 Months Old!

Ivy is now almost 8 months old, but I can't let her get to the 8 month mark without posting about the last 2 months. If you're reading this, Ivy. I hope you'll forgive me. 5 children, a demanding calling and running a small business gives just the slightest amounts of time to sit and write. I will try harder to be better. I love writing and especially about my family and ESPECIALLY about Ivy!

Ivy is always a joy. She's so fun to hold because she just melts into your arms. She gives you hugs and nuzzles into your shoulder. She always smiles and loves to blow bubbles. One of my favorite things about her is when she gets excited or wants something, she wiggles her hands and her feet. It's more at her wrist and ankle and she just rolls them and wiggles them until she gets what she wants. She also stiffens her legs and I love to squeeze the little fat rolls on her knees when she does that. She is so irresistible. I can't even tell you how much of a blessing she is to me and our whole family. She brightens all of our moods!


She started eating solids. There never was a slower eater in all the land. If you want to learn patience, spoon feed Ivy.
 But at least I get to stare at her while I feed her!...









She is so perfect and easy! She has a hard time going to bed for the night, but she's getting better! Ivy is a dream baby!!! Happy Half, Birthday, Ivy Anne!
