we've been busy


See these sweet little gums?
We've been busy getting rid of them. And it has caused the baby to be quite the tongue sticker-outer.




He now has two perfectly tiny, white teeth on the bottom to show for all our hard work. Can you see them? (I tried to get a picture of them, but this was the best I could do. Look closely).


In other news, we really have been very busy (a couple of funerals, a bunch of projects--just call me Martha Stewart, a few soccer, softball, and basketball games, not to mention pouring the foundation in our backyard so we can add on to our master bedroom), so I have neglected blogging activities. I am looking forward to catching up on your blogs as well as posting more frequently on mine.

I love the tounge!!! He is so cute! How's nursing going with the teeth? You're adding on to your bedroom huh? Do you mind if I ask how inthe world you're going to afford it? We can hardly afford rent...

Brooke,

So far so good on nursing with the teeth. I am definitely on guard though, ready to pop my finger right in there as soon as he stops actively sucking to avoid any mis-haps. I am crossing my fingers that he doesn't bite because I'd like to keep nursing for a bit longer, but if biting starts I may not be able to make it...

We had some property in Southern Utah that we sold and we are using some of the money that we got from that on the addition. We've also been able to build up some savings over the past couple of years so that is helping. But yes, money is tight and we are definitely budgeting to make things work!

I just can't get over this baby!! I could look at him all day. I have finally recovered from all of the diesel fumes I inhaled whilst coating the concrete frames. We loved spending the morning with you. Thanks for the lawn mowing pics. I posted them. We are going to help lots this summer. Please keep us in the loop so we know when you need us.

you'll be so glad to have captured that tongue thing on camera, b/c it'll be over quickly and you'd forget it otherwise. happy those little teethies came in, aren't they cute to see eveytime he smiles?! we're all eager to see pics of your new haircut. (i think mine will be taking place next week, although i'm experiencing a little cold feet, partly b/c i've found a new way to style my shoulder length hair without having to spend a lot of time on it, whereas i used to throw it in a ponytail everyday. decisions, decisions)

Funny, Marina does the exact same thing with her tongue. She also blows raspberries constantly. Isn't it funny how they look all grown up with just two little teeth? I love the pics. He is adorable!

Your little guy is soooo cute! What a handsome baby! Thanks for letting me know! I hate that I would forget anyone and when I changed the background it all happened so fast I was going crazy trying to remember everyone.
