Not a whole lot going on here so I thought I would post some updates.

Baby girl had her 6 month appointment.  She is now over 16 lbs!  We have not started her on solids yet (she has gone the longest of all the kids so far).  Not sure when I will start yet since she seems to be getting enough through nursing.  She is starting to babble alot more now but still no 'mama' or 'dada' yet....and no teeth!!!!  All our kids had teeth by 3 and 4 months.

School is going well.  We have already completed 124 days of our 180 year so come January we should hopefully be moving up to the next grades.  I love schooling all year round!!

We have been using a lot of coconut oil lately.  A few months ago, we went to a herbal store to pick up some vitamins and got on the topic of coconut oil and its benefits.  Man o man does it do alot and is it ever healthy!!!  We use it in our cooking now but also use it in hair and on skin.  Our daughter does a weekly coconut oil conditioning for her hair.  We put it in Friday evening, place a shower cap on overnight, and wash it out next morning.  Her hair looks sooooo much healthier lately!!  I've always talked about how scraggly her hair looked but I've seen real improvement since the treatments.  Coconut oil helps with thyroid function, cholesterol, can be used as a teeth and sinus treatment (called oil pulling).

I've been on ebay for the past couple weeks snagging some great deals!!!  I'll have to post some pics.  I am getting the kids fall and winter coats....the kids enjoy waiting for packages in the mail!!

Other than that, all is well :)
 Thank you Lord!!


  1. So glad Baby Girl had a good 6 month appointment. What cute pictures of her!!! She looks to be such a happy girl! Can't wait to see her again in person as well as all of you!!!

    So glad school is going so well. That's great that it works out to do it throughout the whole year.

    I had heard of the benefits of coconut oil before but just recently a friend at church had mentioned that oil pulling and she was trying it. It does seem to have quite a few benefits.

    Thanks so much for your updates. Always good to hear from you and so glad all is well!

    Love and hugs to you all

  2. I absolutely love the pictures of our girl!! I love the big smile on her face. Good to hear of her checkup and that she is doing so well. I wouldn't worry about her teeth. They say the later they come in the better they are.

    I like schooling all year round too. We have just had a couple weeks off because of our new arrival.

    I haven't heard that much about coconut oil except for what you have told me. Sounds good though.

    Glad you're getting some good deals on things. They are always nice to find.

    Glad to hear everything else is well.

    Love you all so much,

  3. I love my new little brother. He had a bath today. I help Mommy a lot. It is nice helping her. I can't wait to see you,I wish I was there.
    I love you and miss you.

    Love Peanut

  7. Hey guys, I heard coconut oil makes a great deodarant as just keep your old container and fill up with a baking soda and coconut oil mixture(my sister had done this for some time).I have never tried it myself though but heard lots about it as well;)

  8. Hey
    Someone may take a big bite out of you. I love coconut bars.
