This is my favorite baby equipment purchase I have ever made. Most of you might not know that I broke my back when I was 15 in a car accident. When I started having children, I tried all sorts of baby carriers. They all killed my back after about a half an hour. I read about the Ergo in "Above Rubies". Nancy's daughters just couldn't say enough about them. So I ordered one. I LOVED it! I have walked around the state fair all day with a six month old in the Ergo. The Ergo is also great when you have a two year old as well. You can hold on to their hand because your hands are free! My last three babies have loved it!
Lily was fussing and I was trying to make our salad for dinner. She wouldn't stop so I thought I would try putting her in it. She stopped fussing immediately and fell asleep. I didn't have to listen to a fussin' baby while I was cooking and she was very content. For infants you put them in sideways, when they get bigger, their legs straddle your hips. You can wear this on you hip, back or front. The only thing you can't do is put them in front facing forward.
Here is Lily soaking up the sunshine. Her little cheeks are starting to fill out!
I love this picture of Jacob. I was desperate to use up a ton of boiled eggs after Easter so I invented this recipe. I made egg salad, put it on whole wheat bread, added a slice of ham lunch meat and then a slice of Colby Jack cheese. I cooked it at 350 until it was melted and served it for breakfast. Some of the kids liked it and some didn't.
"Show me your way , oh Lord, teach me Your paths; guide me in Your truth and teach me for you are God my Savior, and my hope is in You all day long." -Psalm 25:4-5 My Mission for this BLOG is to bring glory to God as I share what He is teaching me as I raise my children for Him. I want to encourage mothers all around the world to hang in there! Motherhood is tough, challenging and gritty. But through Christ's strength and the support of other moms who are in the trenches, I will keep pressing towards the goal to raise Godly children. Please feel free to leave comments. It blesses me so much! You can also email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am a Stay-At-Home mother of six children. We LOVE having a large family. My first love, is Christ and the Words of the Bible. My passion is to teach my children about the Lord. I love to watch my children discover their own faith in God. My husband has been a firefighter for over 20 years and is now an officer. I am very proud of him. I long to be a Titus 2 woman who encourages other women to love their husbands and children and to thrive in their homes, not just survive.
The noblest calling in the world is that of a mother. True motherhood is the most beautiful of all arts, the greatest of all professions. She who can paint a masterpiece or who can write a book that will influence millions deserves the plaudits and admiration of mankind; but she who rears successfully a family of healthy, beautiful sons and daughters whose immortal souls will be exerting an influence throughout the ages long after paintings shall have faded, and books and statues shall have been destroyed, deserves the highest honor that man can give. -David O. McKay Motherhood is the one thing in all the world which most truly exemplifies the God-given virtues of creating and sacrficing. Though it carries the woman close to the brink of death, motherhood also leads her into the very realm of the fountians of life and makes her co-partner with the Creator in bestowing upon eternal spirits mortal life. -David O McKay We can't form our children on our own concepts; we must take them and love them as God gives them to us. -Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Lo, children are a heritage of the Lord; and the fruit of the womb is his reward. -Psalm 127:3 The mother's heart is the child's schoolroom -Henry Ward Beecher The art of mothering is to teach the art of living to children. -Elaine Heffner People who say they sleep like babies usually don't have them. -Leo J. Burke
To be a mother is a woman's greatest vocation in life. She is a partner with God. No being has a position of such power and influence. She holds in her hands the destiny of nations, for to her comes the responsibility and opportunity of molding the nation's citizens. -Spencer W. Kimball
