Lots of Pictures for Me. I mean You. Ok. I mean Me.

filed under: Miscellaneous on January 2, 2009

Well, we have been SUPER busy with lots of…

…. nothing. 

And everything.   And life.  And adjusting to our new family.

We did get a big snowfall…YEAH!… I love those big white fluffy flakes that dance around the sky and fall gracefully into big piles on the ground.  The kids have had a ball running through snow and jumping into snow and throwing snow and falling (a lot) in snow.

And we are supposed to get a bunch more tomorrow.  Joy!

We also brought Audrey Irene in for her first chiropractic appointment.  I knew she needed it, but I didn't realize how much!  With our sleeping arrangements and nursing all the time, she had developed a 'kink' in her neck from only looking to one side.  (Totally my fault)  Dr. Erick picked up on it right away after viewing her thermal-scan and fixed her up right quick! ๐Ÿ˜‰

You could almost see the relief in her eyes.  It was wonderful!  If you have never had your kids adjusted… do it now! ๐Ÿ™‚

This is the face I see the most of… mouth open searching for food. 

Shes just like me.

And now, so as not to ignore my other children.  Not that I would ever do that.  (Hint: Be prepared for Not Me Monday…)

Here is Colton, who all on his own, created this beautiful frame masterpiece with all his magnet letters.  I was beyond proud!

And I just liked his thoughtfulness in this picture…

And here is my baby..I mean my big boy (whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!)… Parker.

Hope you all had a safe and fun New Year.  Now lets all have a blessed and Christ filled 2009!

    Hey girl! I’ve been thinking about you today! Glad to see the new pictures. I’ve never thought about taking a child to the chiropractor, I’ve never been myself actually. I’m glad it helped! I love the snow pictures. Caleb keeps asking me if it’s going to snow here. Hard to tell, today it’s in the 70s!
    Come by if you have a minute for my new Friday thing!

    Hi Amanda, thanks for the email! Congrats on your new baby! You have adorable kids.
    Yes, I have a blog…sorta. That is to say, I only update it periodically as time permits. http://www.keepittoyourself.blogspot.com. Click on any of the photos to see my sets on flickr.
    Now to comment on your post. I recently began taking my baby to the Chiropractor at the recommendation of a good friend. I could not believe the difference in his disposition. After the first visit, he became the happiest, most contented baby. I’m going to use it as a shower gift from now on!

  • ElizaBeth says:

    Beautiful! Could you send some of that snow down here?
    As for the chiropractor…. when she starts asking to go you may reconsider your intruducing her to him…. I hear it at least 2-3 times a week..from each kid…. “are we going by the office today?… Could you call and get me an appointment?…. Its not his day off, is it?….. I wouldn’t be so grouchy if i wasn’t out of place…..
    Gotta love them!

  • Janis says:

    Wow–can’t believe you have taken little Audrey to the chiro already. Haven’t thought about it with Elizabeth yet. Maybe that would help her sleep better. : )
    Great pics! Nice to know I’m not the only one that has a camera at the doctor’s. ๐Ÿ™‚
    How’s everything going for you? That open mouth is something I see often as well. Today I think I saw it every 15 minutes (if she wasn’t already nursing). Now that daddy is home she is fast asleep in his arms…go figure. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Have a great weekend!

    What great photos! Your kids are adorable.

  • Christy says:

    Hey girl, one of my best friends has had her kids adjusted. Our insurance will not pay for it, if I thought they needed it I’d try to make arrangements, but so far so good. Emma nurses on both sides, although for quite some time she preferred to only nurse on the left side and it’s still her favorite side.
    Love all the pictures!
    Oh I got your Christmas card! Thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I sent yours out last week (I know, late…but better late than never is my complete motto this year! LOL)

  • debi says:

    Amanda…
    Your pics are looking GREAT ๐Ÿ™‚
    Sorry I still haven’t ever posted a SOOC…I’m thinking of doing a separate blog site for anyone who wants to ask photo questions.
    Not that I’m the very best photographer, but maybe we could grow together.
    Your littlest one is just beautiful…I know you are enjoying her.
    Hope this year is full of wonder for you and yours!

    I have never heard of taking a baby to a chiro…of course, I had my kids 10 million years ago…lol. It actually makes great sense.
    Love the pics, as always. And Audrey Irene is a beauty : )
