Super Baby Food!

Lots have happened since my last update. Cara busted through with her first tooth on her 7 month 'birthday.' Then the second tooth broke through within 3 days. So, she now has 2 pearly (stubby, still not all the way out of the gum) whites. I have yet to get a good picture, will post one soon. Here is one of her in the tubs as we were packing up our Christmas decorations (yes, not until like January 13th!!). Also, I have found she has two favorite things to do now. One is play in the jumper that our friend from Michigan got her (Denise--THANKS!). It hangs from the doorjam, and she just JUMP, JUMP, JUMPS! Her 2nd favorite thing to do is sit in front of the window with the 2 puppies and look out the front porch. This is great because it give me a quick minute to email (or update my blog). Plus, she just looks so cute doing it!

We've got a pretty good schedule down. She's sleeping from about 7 pm till 7:30 am, with 2 naps during the day. We usually grocery shop on Mondays. Go to our playgroup with all of our friends from church Wednesdays at 10, and to library time on Thursdays. She is such a good baby, we have been so blessed! I have started making all of her own baby food, to save some money, and because it's so easy and I know exactly what she's eating. It's been great being able to nurse her for so long and now make all her other foods. Wish us safe travel as Cara and I are off to visit Mawmaw and Pawpaw tomorrow in Georgetown. Love to all!

Happy New Year!!

Can you believe it is 2007? It still feels like 2005 to me, 2006 went by WAY to fast! We hope everyone had a great Christmas season, we sure did. We got to visit with our families, and see some of our friends that came into town. Eric's two best friends from high school, Ronnie and Benny, were both in town for almost a week so we got to spend some fun time with them. I've been scrapbooking like crazy trying to get Cara's album up to date (I'm only like 4 months behind ;) !). Eric has really enjoyed his 2 weeks off, but the end tomorrow :(. I think maybe the whole 'no job' thing will kick in once he's back at work. I feel like I quit, but I've been doing CPE and lots of bookkeeping trying to get year end caught up, that I feel like I only had a one week break with Eric. I still have to go in this week as well, but then it should die down. I'm not complaining, God has granted me such a great balance that I wouldn't trade it for the world!

So, for our 'new year's resolutions' which we don't usually do, we've decided we have 2 main goals: 1) to grow spiritually as a couple, as parents, and as individuals, and 2) to make another baby towards the 2nd half of the year ;) We'd like our next child (God willing of course!) to be born in May or June of 2008! So we'll see how that goes. Also, we both want to lose weight, so we'll see if we can make that happen. Anyways, hope that catches you up on our life. Gotta Run!
