Loving Fall

Just found this in my posts...

It has been a little interesting, and scary at times, but Samuel is getting used to his "mini me" around.
At first Samuel would often be caught inching his little foot to Eli anticipating to push him away (such as off the bed) but was not successful. In trying to make Eli stop crying he would shove his binki in his face very hard. But over all we are finding balance and Samuel is learning to love his new best friend.

Baby Eli

I can't believe he is finally here! Our baby Elijah arrived October 5. It was such an amazing experience. I was so full of peace, love and gratitude after having him. I feel so blessed.

It is deja vu all the time. He reminds me so much of Samuel. Even though his hair is dark and Samuel has been blond since day one, they are so similar. They have the same look to them. They make the same faces and are very close in size. After Samuel being induced a week late I had no intentions of having Eli early, so when I went into labor 11 days before he was due I didn't take it too seriously at first. At 8lbs 15oz I am so glad he came when he did.

I am the last one who would have guessed I'd have two little boys, but I love it!

On the Blog again...

So it has kind of been a while. Lot's of things have happened as in any family in the past 7 months, can't believe it has been that long. Sometimes I have thought, do I want to start the blog again or will I get distracted and stop. Or other times I think, where would I begin, do I go back an try to document the past -impossible. So here's where I'll start -today.

Do husbands think??

My recent hostess cupcakes

Tonight after another long pregnant day I was reading Matt questions from a gift we received called Table Topics, while he was watching his nightly TV. The last and FINAL question I read him said, "If you had the money which would you choose to hire, a housekeeper, a cook, a gardener, or a personal secretary?" Assuming he would of course say a housekeeper or personal secretary, (but thought he should say a gardener) with out and hesitation he spouted off "a cook". What...is he serious. I would some what understand if I didn't like to cook, or I rarely cooked, but that is quite the opposite. The Food Network is my TV of choice, I spend ample time combing through cook books, I receive cooking magazines in the mail, and YES I cook a lot.

No matter how much I think my culinary abilities are well received, there will never be any getting past that one and only love for his mom's pot roast and jello salad. How can I compare...

At least someone enjoyed them.
