Well it's official! My last little baby is half way through her first year. (sigh)
It's so hard to believe. Looking back, it has all been worth it. She can just make my day by smiling at me. She gets a huge smile on her face when she notices you looking at her.
One of the little things that makes Abbie, Abbie is how easily she startles! She doesn't like loud noises. This after noon she was asleed in her bassinet and I accident stepped on hannahs water bottle. The crunching sound it made caused her to just about jump out of her skin. I had rock and cuddle her untilshe felt safe enough to be put back down again.
She is just my sweety!
I can't believe how big she's getting and while am sad to see her grow. I am also so happy. Happy for her...happy to celebrate her achivements and her life!
The truth is, even though I always say that I should have lived in the age of the pioneers, i am so glad that I don't . John and I have discussed over and over the fact that were it not for modern medicine we would most likely have never had 8 chiildren.
I am so thankful for the miricles that our Father has provided
- I am a 29-ish yr old married mother of 8. My family is my life and I wouldn't have it any other way. My darling husband is my very best friend and together we are raising 8 of the best kids in the world! They are Rose(12) Sarah(12) Ammon(10) Malachi(8) Gabriel(7) Hannah(5) Maggie(4) and Abbie(3) We currently own 2 dogs, 1 bird, 5 chinchillas, 1,000,000 rabbits, 1 cat, 4.5 horses, and one ferret. We just purchased a home that is definately a "fixer-upper", with land and room for the kids to roam. Our goal is to run a mostly self sustaining farm and live in peace as we grow as a strong family unit. We have seen our fair share of hardships, but we are thankful for the many blessings the Lord gives us on a regular basis!
