you oughta be in pictures

In addition to my request in my last post, I figured I should also post an actual update/posty thing.  So I'll settle with some random pics form my 365 project lately:

 This girl is turning 8 in less than a month.  !!!!!!!!!!!!!  She is thrilled to get to be baptized on her exact birthday, and the husband's family has this gorgeous baptism dress they've passed down for 2 generations now.  How cool is that??

This kid.  He has been so lucky in early intervention programs and teachers who genuinely love him - and it makes me so happy to see how far he has come that I'm only slightly exasperated by the fact that this was the best back-to-school picture I could get out of him.  He cracks me up.

We live next to a corn field and I got it into my head that we should go take a fall-ish picture in front of it.  This was also the best shot we could get out of us.

You know, my life ain't half bad.

baby helps

So our dear Jane has a human in her abdomen that will be exiting shortly!

Yeah, I wanted to make that sentence as awkward as humanly possible.  Good for me!  Anywho, I'm trying to get for her all the very most helpful things I ever had as a mom and I wondered if y'all would weigh in?  I feel like I was punched in the face by motherhood and my memories are spotty.  There are tons of books and trinkets that I love, but the number one was this:

Sleep sacks.  Oh MAN, Thing 3 is my best sleeper and I swear it's gotta be because I discovered these.  Then there are snack traps, pacifier clips, extra socks (ALWAYS EXTRA SOCKS.), etc, but what am I missing?  What was your big help?

HEAR YE. I need to document the fact that I ran 3 miles and didn't feel like death.  So just to make sure it wasn't a fluke, I did...
