Jesse Boy | Four Months Young

This little dude. He's becoming a big little dude.

He is smiling all the time. Even when he cries, it seems like he has a laugh mixed in.

He is a total flirt with everyone who looks at him. And with inanimate objects (like a fan, or a light, or a wall).

He wants to sit up. He likes the high chair, the boppy, the bumbo, the jumper, and even his belly now.

He rolled over from his tummy to his back once this week! (4.5 months)

He wants to touch things. Lots of things. He puts pretty much everything in his mouth, including his fingers (or as much of his hand that he can).

He drools a lot and gnaws on everything.

He is a big babe. He in size 6/9month clothes, size 2 and 3 diapers, and is "fluffy" on the scale of percentages from the dr.  :) He is an over-achiever in each department of Height, Weight, and Head Circumference.

He sleeps very well, and just on his 4-month birthday did he start waking up in the night to eat. He now sleeps from about 7pm to 7am, and wakes up once or twice to nurse. But, he did just go through a week of being awake for about 30-45min stretches two or three times a night. He nurses about every 3 hours when he's awake.

He is the best littlest man in our life, and lights up knowing his dad is home, and loves being a baby brother to Cody.

Cody is a wonderful big brother, too! He helps me with just about everything that I ask of him. He runs to quickly uncover Jesse and let him stretch when he first wakes up from a nap or the night.

GOD GIVES GOOD GIFTS. We love this one!!!!!!!!

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…
