Alyssa – 35 Weeks

What I love about Alyssa – 35 Weeks


I love how much you are getting into this whole Christmas thing!!  I don’t see how anyone could have a depressing Christmas with you around!

You poor baby you are cutting 4 teeth right now!!  Your 2 front right teeth have cut the surface and your 2 front left teeth are right underneath the gum.  But you are a trooper and I thank God for teething drops!!

You are starting to enjoy your baby food – FINALLY!!  You definitely have a sweet tooth and prefer the fruit and the sweeter veggies.  You love to eat baby food at dinner time…but are still not so sure about eating it at breakfast or lunch time.


You are really getting the army (belly) crawl down!!  It is so much fun watching you!!  You are into EVERYTHING though!  We really have to keep a watchful eye on you when you are on the floor!

You have even gotten up on your hands and knees a few times but really can’t figure out how to move yet when you do get up.  It won’t be long though!!

You are really starting to get some hair in too…and it is sticking straight up!!  There is still not enough to put a bow in it but it won’t be long!  I am dying to put a bow in your hair!!


And Daddy is trying to deny it but you have started saying “MaMa”!!  I think it is the most precious sound in the world (even if you are just making noises and not intentionally saying MaMa”)

I love you my baby girl!  I can’t wait to spend your first Christmas with you!  You are going to be so much fun!

Alyssa – 34 Weeks

What I Love About Alyssa – 34 Weeks

Oh Alyssa!  I can’t believe that you are going to be 8 months old next week!!  Where does the time go?!?!  You are growing up way too fast!

We are having so much fun getting Christmas pictures this year.  You have really learned how to ham it up for the camera!!

You love it when you are with your brothers!


You still love to wrinkle that nose up…especially the past few days when you have been teething.

You are grabbing for everything these days!!  We have to be so careful and watchful of you!


You have discovered a new found talent of making spitting noises with your tongue.


You are really getting into this Christmas thing!  You love to get hold of the ornaments!

I love your super sweet expressions.  I love everything about you baby girl!!

Our Handmade Christmas Blog is up!

Hey guys!!  I have decided how to share my handmade Christmas presents with you to give you ideas for fun,easy Christmas gifts.

I have created a new blog specifically for this.  The main reason is because my family, who I am making these gifts for, reads this blog and I don’t want to ruin their surprise (so family please please please do not go to this other blog until after Christmas!)

Iwante to be able to share my ideas that I have found in hopes that you will find some ideas so that you too can have a handmade Christmas!!!  I really think too much emphasis is put on how much we spend at Christmas…who gets the most expensive gift.  I do not think that is what Christmas should be about!  Christmas is all about giving (we are celebrating the birth of our Saviour – who gave his LIFE for us).  Christmas should be about creating and sharing memories!  Having a handmade Christmas helps accomplish that!

Some of these gifts my children have helped me with…some of them they haven’t (mainly due to their young age).  I will do my best to give clear instructions.  Most of these ideas I have found from other websites and I will give credit where credit is due!

And I love comments!!  So please please please let me know what you think and if you found any of these ideas useful.  Please feel free to share links to these blog posts!

So if you would like to see what we are doing for our handmade Christmas please click here to go to the blog (family please please please do not click that link!)

Alyssa – 33 Weeks


I am so sorry this post is late!  I usually try to get this out on Fridays but it has been a crazy week.  Daddy has been gone since Thursday (is on the plane back home while I type this today) so I have been doing everything I can to keep the kids busy this week!

What I love about Alyssa at 33 weeks:

I love the wonderful pictures that we got last weekend!!  I still have not done the editing on them…but they really don’t need any editing!!  Most of the pics on this post were from last weekend!

I love the fact that Alyssa is learning how to sit up!!  Of course I have to put her in the sitting position but just this week she has learned how to balance herself and sit up for a bit (as long as she doesn’t try to arch her back…then she goes backwards!)  These pictures below were taken the first day she did it!!  She was so proud of herself!!


I love how much Alyssa loves her brothers and how much they love her!  She wants to be with them all the time!!

Alyssa loves ALL of her grandparents!!  She just smiles and coos at everybody!!   (she loves being the little princess of the family!)


I know I have said this before and I will keep saying it again and again – Alyssa has truly completed our family!!


I love the personality that Alyssa is developing!!  She has the sweetest little disposition (most of the time – ha!)


She is truly learning how to ham it up for the camera!

I love the fact that Alyssa is a TROOPER!!  She is game for anything!  We went the other night to a parade of lights!  It was VERY cold last night so we opened the back of our vehicle to sit in and watch the parade.  We cuddled up in blankets and she just snuggled right in.


I love my baby girl!!!  I am the proudest Mommy there ever was!!

What I Love About Alyssa – 32 Weeks

I love how much you love to play!  You love to roll all around the floor!  You are going to be crawling any day now!

I love how well you are starting to be able to sit in restaurant high chairs.  You are not as slumped over any more :-)

I love how cute you look in the coat that Mommy crocheted for you before you were born :-)

I love this adorable picture taken of you on your very first Thanksgiving!!

In keeping with the tradition we had to give you a turkey leg on your first Thanksgiving!  You liked to chew on it (probably because you are teething) but you would not hold it!  I had to hold it for you!

Look at this dirty look you are giving me!!  I crack up every time I look at this picture!!

I like that pretty smile much better!


I love you my little angel!!


Of course – your brothers love you lots too!!

I can’t forget my boys!!  I love them so very much too!!  (Daddy told me I am spending too much time gushing about Alyssa…)  I love my family and am very THANKFUL for all of them!!  I am so blessed!
