I got my hair cut this weekend. I had had long hair for several years, and I was ready for a change, partly because of the heat lately, partly because Baby Boy likes to pull hair, and partly just for fun. Here's a pic:


I got to watch Baby Boy stand up all by himself in his crib today. I heard him babbling to himself after waking up from his nap, so I quietly opened his bedroom door. He didn't see me poke my head in. He was sitting up, and then he grabbed hold of the crib bar and pulled himself up and started chewing on the bar! It was so cute! Eventually, he noticed I was standing there, and he smiled, like, oh, you caught me, Mama. :-)

You are so beautiful! Your husband is blessed man;) I love just seeing other young women as mothers loving what God has given them to do. Care for the home and raise babies! I am encouraged by this thing called blogs:) Thanks for posting.

God bless,

Hello. I just read your blog after six weeks of being away from the internet in Africa. You look wonderful. In fact, I think you look thinner than you did in middle school. Way to go on your diet. I thought the South Beach Diet encouraged artificial sugars. Are you doing it without artificial sugars?

Thanks for the kind comments. :-)

Stephanie--yes, I stay away from artificial sugars. About the only time I ever have them is when I chew a stick of gum, which is rare. Welcome back from Africa!
