Snapshots of Life

Just some random photos to share…

Today is Lazarus’ due date. I’m quite thankful he came early to celebrate Christmas with us.

With the hustle and bustle of … well, everything … life, the Christmas season … little Lazarus is living in the sling or in my arms. Which, in my opinion, is right where I want him. My arms are still free to help the other girls, make meals, pick up Lavender, fold laundry … but I can still snuggle my new wee baby and smell his sweet head all day long.

Lucia took this photo the other day while we were making cinnamon buns together …








napping with his daddy



I would like to go through more photos – but sleep is beckoning … 😉

I hope you had a fabulous Christmas and felt the love of the Saviour over the holiday …

Teresa Oh isn’t it wonderful finally getting to carry them on the outside rather than the inside of your skin? Love those newborn smells and the feel of that downy baby hair. Unforgettable and oh so sweet. Baby carriers are a life saver! Congratulations Gillian on your beautiful little boy–hope we get to meet him before he’s too big. :). xo

Rebecca Kurber Such wonderful photos! Happy New Year!

So, I know you are so busy, so if you don’t get to this, no worries, but I was curious about your cloth diapering routine (you posted several posts back about getting ready for the new baby and you had a cute little photo of your stack of diapers, but I wasn’t able to comment directly on that post for some reason). I was wondering what brand/style you use and like best? I’ve decided to get into cloth diapering and I’m just wondering what a mom of 7 kiddos thinks on the subject matter 🙂

Maike You look so very young and beautiful and just lovely even when you’re not smiling and doing regular chores. Thank you for the little glimpse. Lazarus looks so peaceful and it’s nice to see the strong bond between the children. Happy New Year’s to your family! 🙂
