1st Birthday

It seems like just yesterday I was waiting to meet my Lil Pumpkin! I was already 10 days overdue when my doctor call me in to her office on a Saturday (yes, she called me!) and had me come in for monitoring. She determined that I was ready and that I should head over to the hospital right away. Several hours later Lil Pumpkin was born!

Our 5th little girl added to our family. I wondered what her personality would be like and if I could handle all the details of a newborn plus everything else.

One of Lil Pumpkin’s first outings was to our local co-op. A pre-teen girl came up to me and said with such sincerity, “I am so glad you had Lil Pumpkin!” Being a family that has more than 2 kids—that is not a comment I hear often. That comment blessed me so much! Now a year later I can’t imagine Lil Pumpkin not being a part of the family! She brings us so much joy!

Yes, this first year has gone by fast! I knew it would, but it still surprised me. My little baby is not so little anymore!  Happy (belated) first birthday!

Happy Birthday to your lil' lovie... she is beautiful! And I love what you said there - because you're right, its not often we hear a positive comment after we answer that question "Are they ALL yours?" We have 6 lovies and I remember almost every positive we've ever been offered. :)

Anyway, I am glad to have found your blog and to discover that you also have lots of lovies that you homeschool!

I'm also your newest GFC "friend"! I'm new to We Teach and just joined the "We're Bloggers" group. When you find a moment, I would love for you to do the same. You can find me at
