bath time!

Ian is getting more and more personality all the time. He smiles and "talks" to us. Lots of fun noises and coos and yells when he is excited. This has come abundantly clear at bath time. He kicks his feet in the baby tub and my favorite time is right after his bath. We get to cuddle while he is in his bath towel. He is so adorable. I can't believe this delightful little boy was not in my life three months ago. He has changed everything and while being a parent is the hardest thing in the world sometimes. Moments like these, I know are what will make it all worth it. I know we haven't even gotten to the hard parts yet, but I will tresure this time. He is amazing.

Ian, I love you.


Snuggle time with Mom.

Aren't I adorable. I'm working it. Mom can't resist me.

Wow. Another Post in the Month of June and Ian's baptism

I have so much to catch everyone up on, but alas, I don't know where to start.

We have everything planted. Corn still not harvested and if it doesn't quit raining it won't be for awhile yet. Obviously, if it is way to wet to harvest it was way to wet to plant.

Ian was baptized. There will be a picture below, it was a wonderful day.

There was a shower for Ian at our church in Montpelier. It was a fun evening.

Gracie found an abandoned kitten in front of the barn and alerted Dustin. She is so tiny, eyes open, but other than that, she only could be a few weeks old. She can't figure out how to drink, so I am bottle feeding her. I was all excited that Ian was sleeping through the night. The kitten, isn't.

I'm going through updated pictures to send for grandma bragbooks and the baptism pics for one of Ian's Godmothers.

I'm trying to see the kitchen table before dark and the bedroom floor by midnight.

It's been rainy off and on today, so I can't go out to my garden.

Oh, we got the miniture garden in. I still have to plant the beans and peas. I'm apparently out of seed for those.

So, there's the quick version. I know. More would be more interesting, this is what you get.

Sorry to be so long.

Life has really gone by fast and blogging has taken a back seat. Hopefully in the next couple days I will get Ian's new pictures posted. They will not disappoint, I assure you. He's grown up so much.
I have a laundry list of stuff to accomplish this week before the weekend. It is Ian's baptism on Sunday, so many people are coming and there are many plans to accomplish. I'm waiting for Ian to fall asleep, so I can get a few things done around the house. I need to get the monitor warmed up.
So, things to do today.
Mop basement with bleach water. Our sump pump plug came loose, so the sump pump stopped working and we found 1 and a half inches of water in our basement. I have been pulling things up for the trash and picking things off the floor, but we are headed to that musty smell and the only way to get rid of it will be the bleach water bath. I hope it works.
I have to clean out the room that we have the office in right now. It will be Ian's room eventually, when he gets older.
I have phone calls to make. Our bedroom and laundry to get done.
It will be a busy week.
It will also be a good one.
Ready, Steady, Go...
