11 month update on Baby Cody

I kept thinking, I need to get Cody's 11 month update blogged before he turns ONE... YIKES. He's ONE! I'll post more about his birthday, later :)

About our eleven month old son:

This is the last time we get to announce him as Baby Cody... He isn't a baby anymore. He's totally a little tyke... toddling around and crazy busy.

He has done a great job adapting to whatever environment we are in, but he's like me and Tim... a homebody.

He got his first tooth at the end of June, at still ten months, but barely! (his bottom left)

He has been a champ when it comes to sleeping since we put him in his own bedroom... but we now use a monitor at night. He feels so distant otherwise. {Minus his last week of the month, while teething.}

He started WALKING the last week of July, and can travel all the way across a room.

He got his second tooth in the end of July, too (his bottom right)

He is starting to wean off of nursing, drinking lots of water out of his camelbak or a sippy cup.

He LOVES yogurt, shredded cheese, bread, and quesadillas. He likes ham.

He has taken to really liking maggie. I think he misses her now that she's outside.

He really likes to push things around. You should see him scoot Tim's lunchbox cooler across the floor. He really cruises!

He is now napping once a day unless he sneaks a catnap in here or there for the late morning. Sometimes I get tired of him being so cranky that I put him in the room in his crib for some quiet, alone time, and he'll get rested up enough to come back with a good attitude.

He is definitely a handful! SO SO SO crazy busy.

Having fun when you're not having fun.

What it feels like to parent on a daily basis, completely exhausted.  Yet, still determined to get through the day. 

Hope you get a kick out of this as much as I did. :) Laughing out loud over here.

Alopecia | Be a light in the Dark, 2 Corinthians 4

The other day in reading during my quiet time, I was revisiting 2 Corinthians. I was thinking, Tim and I have spent many an hour thinking a lot, about a lot. There are so many ugly and awful things going on across the globe, and across our front door. Our mission field is in Northern MN with Native Americans. In this ministry, we have stumbled through some thick, difficult situations. I am certain you can all attest to difficult times being just that: difficult. The Lord doesn't bring us into circumstances just to drag us along, seeing us become battered and bruised, but it IS His priority to bring glory to His name. We are His chosen ones, and our privilege is to sing Hallelujah to His name!

Anyway, I was thinking that we have faced difficulties. One thing that I wanted to share with you today is about my health.

In 2014, I was diagnosed with an auto-immune disorder called Alopecia. This was saddening and drove me and Tim crazy for three years. One day, I found a bald spot on my …

Homeschool Plans 2017-2018, First Grade and Pre-K Boys | Homeschooling with Truth, Beauty, Goodness

I would like to share with you our plans for our homeschool this year. Codeman is in First grade, while Jesse is an official Pre-K dude. Anna is a wannabee brother and underfoot helper and Titus. He's three months old. Whooofta. I'd just like to repeat that again. Whooooooooofta.

I have read many books, blogs, and journals on the topic of education. Home education, and to be even more specific, sources regarding Classical Education and Charlotte Mason. I truly enjoy these topics and the sources. I am intrigued, and so I continue reading and have now found myself following and chatting with several homeschool moms online in addition to my local and Colorado friends who homeschool. Tim and I were both homeschooled, although my window of homeschooling was only 4 years, I glean much from my mom and Tim's mom. As some podcasts I've listened to refer to us, we are second-generation homeschoolers :) Haha! Well, it helps give me perspective on quality literature and publisher…
