It’s been such a fun week here on Creative Christian Mama, full of changes and special things! I decided to finally write my first daughter’s birth story and she and I had so much fun going through the pictures, together. And then I got a question: “But mama, how does the baby get out of the mama’s tummy?” Yikes! If you missed Pumpkin’s birth story you can read it here (part one and part two).
I was also so excited to get to swap guest posts with my new bloggy friend, Paula at Whole Intentions. I wrote about our real-life ways we use coconut products and she taught us how to make echinacea tincture from home-grown echinacea! I’m now convinced to grow my own next year!
Speaking of gardening, my hard-working hubby has prepped two of my raised garden beds for Fall planting (isn’t he a peach?!) and I’ve got to get that going. I’m thinking Swiss Chard, for sure, but I’m undecided on what else. Any suggestions for a Fall garden?
Babykins (almost nine months) has been absolutely amazing to watch! She made her first efforts at crawling just four weeks ago Wednesday and now she is pulling herself to standing and she cruises around the room using the furniture. I feel like I blinked and she went from a newborn to this!
Pumpkin (4 1/2 years old) has just turned my mommy-heart into mush this week! She decided that it would be fun to share her toys with her baby sister, so each morning she gathers several of her baby-safe toys and hauls them to the living room. Then she tells her little sister all about them and sits on the floor playing with her! She’s even brought out some of her favorites (a baby doll and a raccoon) and let her sister slobber all over them. Melts my heart!
LOL! I can’t believe I almost forgot! So, there I was enjoying a quiet shower (you mamas with little ones understand what a treat that can be!) when in charges Pumpkin. “Mama, mama! Daddy found a praying mantis! …The mamas eat their husbands… (shaking head emphatically) …that’s not very good.”
