Just a few updates.
Baby girl is doing well.  She is finally enjoying her solids now.  Her menu is squash, sweet potato, prunes, apricot/applesauce, blueberry/applesauce.  She eats twice a day and still nurses frequently.  She is a very happy girl and very vocal!  Not quite crawling yet but rocks back and forth on her hands and knees and moves backwards.  Says 'dada' and other little sounds.  Still only 2 teeth (that are sharp!!)
Our 9 yr old lost a tooth today and our oldest is about to lose another.  She just had a dentist appt and they are talking about braces soon.  I think we are going to wait until her 'eye' teeth have dropped before we move forward with braces.
Everyone else is doing well.  All are healthy!  I'm in the process of making some immune boosting tinctures.  I LOVE herbs!  Need to make sure we keep our immunity up as the winter months approach.  Going to be making a new elderberry syrup as well which looks yummy!  Still waiting for a few ingredients to arrive.
We had a great visit with my parents.  The kids love spending time with them and showing them around the 'farm' and we were even able to do a little exploring.  We have big plans for next year as we are seriously considering goat farming (for meat) and rabbits (for meat).  I'm hoping to also get into canning as well next year.  We are going to be busy busy!!

Here's some pics of our 'farm' life!

Not too much new going on here.  We are rabbit-sitting right now for a family at church.  The kids are loving them!  These four rabbits are going to produce lots of babies for meat eating :)  The kids now want to add rabbits to our list of farm animals to get here.  We will see.  I think we tasted rabbit in Newfoundland one time so I'm up for it in the future!

Baby girl still has a little bit of her cold yet.  The other 2 are pretty much over it now.  No one else came down with it.  Our 2 yr old sprained her wrist yesterday so she is a little grumpier these days.
Baby girl is still not really liking her 'solids'.  We have attempted Sweet Potato and some of the applesauces.  She LOVED the apricot/applesauce one.  I need to find my BabyBullet so I can start making her food.  It's in a box packed away downstairs somewhere......

We have been purchasing a few more items for around the house lately.  Adding a little decoration here and there.  It is coming along very nicely and I like seeing the rooms all come together.

It is definitely getting colder around here.  I LOVE the fall!!!  Our walks are so much nicer when you're not sweating up a storm!  I think we need to do one more grass mowing yet.  Hopefully this will be the last one before winter comes.  We had a tornado touch down close to the house yesterday.  Three inches of rain and lots of wind and hail.  We bunkered down in the basement for a little while, but when we came back upstairs, saw the prettiest rainbow!!  Beautiful!  It was tense there for a little while.

Speaking of winter, I went on an eBay shopping blitz and bought all of us some winter snowsuits.  We all now have a one piece snowsuit.  They are so neat.  I liked the idea of a one piece to prevent snow from going down our backs or snow pants.  They are easy zip on and we all look pretty snazzy I must say.  Also helps we got most of them for over 50% off!

That's about it for now.
