I promise I'll be at this again soon...

I don't want to whine or complain, because being exhausted in a good sign at 10.5 weeks pregnant and, in some ways, I'm quite thankful for it. It's just that I currently have no energy beyond what I need to clothe and feed my children (and even that's stretching it!) Praise God for my sweet husband who works all day and then comes home and willingly, and even cheerfully, picks up the slack. He's gotta be ready for the 2nd trimester energy boost that I historically have. While I feel a gnawingness (I know that's not a word, but you know what I mean) to post something witty or profound, it's just not happening right now. I've got gazillions of pictures still on the camera...even more to put on our photo website...and it's just not happening right now. So, hopefully, within a couple of weeks, I'll be "back" for several months, at least. And then, Lord willing, life with three kids will begin. We'll see how blogging goes then. So keep checking!

Unintentional Hiatus

Sorry for the lack o' posts of late. I'm EXHAUSTED and don't really even have energy to do the things I need to do, such as feed and dress my children. (Those things do manage to get done, however.) Needless to say, what WAS my blogging time has become my NAP time. I promise to put up b-day party pictures after Amelie's "DINO"mite party next Monday. I think I'll do a Salada girl birthday photo montage. How does that sound? Enticing? If so, check back soon!

Happy Day After Valentine's Day

Violet Ella Turns One!!

We are amazed that a year has already gone by since our Violet was born. She brings us so much joy! Here's to many, many more, Baby V!!

The result of cupcake number one at lunchtime with Grandma Barb and Grandpa Ed.

What better way to celebrate than with chocolate cake and buttercream frosting (and no bib!! I seriously need to do some laundry!)?

gonna get daddy!!

One year ago, at just about this time, this picture was taken. To date, it has the most hits on our photo website. Violet weighed 10 lb. 10.5 oz. at birth. (We'll find out on Tuesday for sure, but I don't think she's even doubled her weight yet.)
