Coach Gifts

My son had a great Little League coach this year. You know the kind of coach that seems to find a way of bonding with each kid and becomes a buddy and a mentor the kids can’t wait to please? That’s his coach. It was gratifying to watch the team pull together this year and […]

Gifts for Dad

I know Father’s Day is a distant memory now, but my mind lingers on suitable gifts for dad because my dad has a summer birthday soon after Father’s day, necessitating the selection of not one but two gifts for dad in a short time. Thankfully, my dad has several great hobbies, making gift selection an […]

I cannot tell you how fortunate I feel to live in a small town and a small neighborhood with relative safety. Believe it or not, locking doors is not something we do that often where I live. My kids can play outside safely and we do not suffer burglaries and thefts in our town. We […]

Two Weeks Old!

Baby Rachel will be two weeks old tonight. The time is flying yet I am enjoying the time spent focusing on family and slowing down the outside forces. No lipofuze reviews up-in-coming from me any time soon.

Of course, hearing my doctor tell me that they weren’t absolutely essential and mandatory did not help cement in my mind that I should add them to my morning […]

First Bath

I just finished giving Rachel her first bath a few minutes ago. I’m so glad I waited until the other kids were gone and didn’t make a big deal out of it because it was extremely unpleasant to say the least. The bathroom was warm and so was the water, but boy did she scream. […]

Rachel Bethany Hatter

Arrived on July 7, 2010 at 9:14 p.m. weighing 7 lbs 14 oz and 21 inches long.
It was a long induction…36 hours to be exact…filled with ups and downs…but God is faithful and always provides.
My worries about things like adult acne are over…now I am consumed with baby poop, sleeping and feedings. […]

Still Pregnant!

After another OB appointment today where the baby looked fine in the Non-Stress Test and my BP was still high yet not freakishly high, we decided to get through the holiday weekend and hopefully the kids will have a great time on the fourth. We are having lots of fun company on Sunday and I […]
