Wells Photo Wednesday

We had a blast at the Hostetter's, where Caleb and Wells got to meet for the first time. They are 6 weeks apart and had the time of their lives together, so fun :) I can see them being friends for life, their mommas would like that ;)

Wells Photo Wednesday

We just got our front yard laid with sod. It feels like velvet and looks like a golf course. It is amazing. On top of that it was GORGEOUS weather. So me and my boys went outside for the morning. So fun. He was so excited he was smiling and screaming. It was hilarious. I love being his mom, he just brings sunshine to my day :)

Wells Photo Wednesday!

Took this in KC over the weekend. That is his cousin Jeremiah and him watching a football game. Sorry, iPhone clarity on this one was not so hot, but the pic is priceless :)

Wells is 5 months...well he is in 3.5 days!!!

So, I know that most of my followers now are not people who know me, which by the way, makes me soooo happy. I feel so blessed to now have 31 followers. I know that is a small number still, but it makes me so happy when I see that number go up, so thanks for following.

I also write this blog though to keep track of our lives, so although my Wells Photo Wednesdays may not be your #1 fave, I love them and it will help me keep track of my little man who is growing so fast. So bear with me, it's only 1 day a week :) And...I have a fabulous new dining set to show you tomorrow, so stay tuned!

So back to Wells. He is not actually 5 months until the 23rd, but I thought I would go early instead of late this time. Woot Woot! Plus...what the heck, he laughs and laughs and laughs and giggles and talks all the time, but EVERY TIME I pull out the camera it is a serious look or the tongue out. I promise, he's a happy baby :)



Weight: 17 lbs.
Height: 26 in.




Milestone:  He just continue to amaze me with how much he learns everyday. This month he is about to cut his first tooth, He sit up unassisted (sometimes crashes into his face though), belly laughs, grabs everything in sight, torments the dog, and can follow sounds and people moving. 
 

 

Favorite things: He loves mirrors, his rainforest exersaucer, the front pack, blankets, his toys, the boppy, Sesame Street, and his daddy (especially his elephant noises!)



My thoughts: Wells has made my life fuller. I had a great life growing up, on my own, married and now with little guy my life is just fuller. Watching him learn about the world and having a part in shaping it is the most amazing gift I have ever been given. Joe and I marvel at the God who creates life, He is worthy to be praised. Mr. Wells, thank you for being so joyful, fun and loving us so much. Your joy and laughter are contagious (as we found out at Walgreens the other day when you had the whole store cracking up). I can't wait to watch you learn more next month.

P.S. My getting 350 items out by tomorrow is going fabulous. I am at 300 now! Look at my drawer. The one the left doesn't even have anything in it! Yea :)

Wells Photo Wednesday + Clean House

This is an old photo but has to be featured, because is makes me smile every time I see it. What a babe!


and...


Why this crazy cleaning frenzy. Here's some history. 

I grew up in a insanely clean house. Not like a bad, you can't touch anything or you get in trouble type of place, but a place that was always clean. My entire family-minus me- is very organized, borderline OCD. Some not so borderline :) To explain how I differ from my family, take the following story. My mom used to tell me that anything left on my floor at night would be donated to kids who needed it. So, I just put it in my bed and slept with it. My sister was nice an neat and my brother and dad too, but not me. Easier to throw it in bed than put it away. Creative - yes. Bad habit started at a young age - yes, yes.

Sadly, that trait has carried on to adulthood. My countertops and floor are clean, but the drawers and everything unseen ...well, not so much. Clean on the outside, on the inside dirty! Then I got to thinking. Jesus wants us to be clean on the inside. He looks at the heart, not at the outside. So I am taking what I, as a person, should be like and am going to translate that to my living space. Look at the outside of this dresser and then look at the inside. Point made right here! Really?!?!?! Dog treats, a lighter, tape, cards and on and on and on things that don't go together in a drawer!



Advantages and disadvantages regarding this project:

Advantages: 
1. I have the training on how to be organized. My whole upbringing trained me for this day.
2. I don't get attached to stuff so it won't be too difficult letting stuff go.
3. I have thousands of items, so what is 300 in the grand scheme of things.
4. The hubby is on board.
5. I know where to get fun stuff to replace the old...oops, not the point of de-cluttering.
6. I can make money by selling some of it
7. The other things I can give to people who I know need it and that makes me happy.

Disadvantages:
1. Time consuming

So the advantages of this project far outweigh the disadvantages so here we go. Here's to getting rid of 300 items before I leave next Thursday for Kansas City. I'll take pics along the way and show you what I got rid of.  Wish me luck!
