The best baby

How did we get blessed with the best baby in the world?

When Blake was little, Mike and I made comments about how he rarely cried, loved to be held and was such a good baby.
When Makenna was born, we made comments about how good SHE was, that she barely, rarely cried and was easy to put to sleep because she just wanted to be put in her crib awake and then she'd fall asleep on her own.
When I was pregnant with Crosby, I prayed I would be blessed enough to have another good baby just like Blake and Kenna were.

Well...God blessed us big-time! Crosby is the easiest baby ever, if you pay attention to his cues. He eats every 4 hours or so, naps after a bottle in the AM and naps after a bottle in the afternoon. He smiles all day long, and tries to get your attention by cooing and gurgling. He is such a little sweetheart and has so much personality already.
We truly are blessed with 3 perfect little babes!

House update

Whew! It's been quite a while, I know. Here are a few pictures to satisfy all of YOU!
The house is MUCH, MUCH more done than this, but these are the pics off of my camera. I will take some more and update a bit later (tonight-maybe)!
Here is our living room, with the box on the left where our fireplace will be. A real fireplace-yup! I know. Call us crazy. The mess, the dirtyness, the work. Ahhhh....but the sound and smell of a real fireplace simply. cannot. be. beat!

These are the french doors that will eventually lead out onto our deck. To the left is the kitchen window.

Our own little Walnut Grove that we (me brother, sister and I)planted with my dad when I was probably 8 or so!

Here is our front door from the inside looking out.

The garages and the two dormers to the left are my mom's living room and her bedroom. The one on the right is Blake's room.

More pics to follow!
