Mariah video

I was fooling around with the camera and iMovie this morning. Mariah was my victim!

Mariah - 11 weeks old

Well, it seems that Mariah has officially taken over my blog. She is definitely a point of interest as far as the camera is concerned! I will try to be a bit more diverse in future days, but for now, here is more Mariah!
Squeaky clean after her bath and chatting to daddy.

I really like these cloth diapers that we are using. This one that she is wearing is the Bum Genius brand and they are so easy to use! Love, love, love them!

And down below we have a picture of the cute outfit that the Sahlstroms bought for her! I can't believe how quickly she is growing into things! I just tried this outfit on a few weeks ago and it was way too big! But now...
...she fills it out nicely!
(that's the politically correct way of saying she is getting chubby!!)

So my most recent struggle is getting up early like the Proverbs 31 woman. I know, she is crazy perfect but it's a goal, right? So the last two mornings, I have somehow managed to get up early enough to read my devotions in the morning before Mariah wakes up and it makes such a HUGE difference in my day. I really gotta do that more! I don't know why it's so easy to forget what a privilege it is to meet with the King of Kings each morning. And that He actually WANTS to meet with me! Wow...what a nincompoop I am sometimes!

Real Life

I just discovered this fun weekly photo challenge and have been inspired by it to use my camera a bit more than I have been lately. This week's challenge = REAL LIFE. I forget sometimes with all the busyness of real life that these are the moments I will want to remember when I am old and sitting in a nursing home someday. So here is one such real moment that takes place on a weekly basis in our house...
My husband, being a musician, spends a good deal of time at his instruments. These days he finds himself with a little helper.
I think she is going to be a daddy's girl!

Check out some other "real life" moments...and maybe even join in yourself!
