Finally some pictures!

Those two of Zeke are from today.  My little pumpkin is 7 & 1/2 months old!  Last week at the doctor's he weighed 13.5 lbs!  Oh my goodness, what a big boy.  I can't believe how huge he is.  Today when his occupational therapist was here, we fed him banana for the first time, and he liked it!  She said he ate well and she doesn't think he will have any problems eating.  

Yesterday Jessy came over and we made soap!  We made a batch of lavender for her, and after she left I made a batch of jasmine-orange.  I wasn't sure if the combination would turn out well, but let me tell you, it is scrumptious.  Mmmmmm!  It's prodominately orange smelling, with jasmine undertones.  I could just eat it.  :)  It's all sliced up and sitting on a window sill to dry out.  And we had a lovely time, Jessy and I.  (I'm so glad you came over!)
Nothing much else is going on... just ho-humming along here in Pikeville.  I feel like there was something else I was supposed to write about, but I don't remember what it was.  Oh well.

Edit:  I DO remember!  Our neighbor showed up at our door Monday night with a baby chick!  She didn't know what to do with it so she gave it to us.  So we have a sweet little baby chicken now.  I haven't taken a picture yet, but I will put one up later.  She's a sweetie pie, I think she's lonely with no chicken-friends.  :(

Oh wow, Ezekiel is so darling! When I first saw him I thought he looked like Pike, but now that I've seen your baby pics I have to say he looks a lot like you as well. Congrats on your successful soap making! It must smell so sweet. We should talk sometime!

Oh! I love your pictures! Did you ever take a class or anything because they look like a pro!

GREAT pictures lady!!! And thanks again for letting me harass you all afternoon. You're so kind to basically let a total stranger into your home to make soap. hehe. I just cut mine this afternoon and it smells so good. I'm glad your citrus combo turned out successful. I'm tellin ya you should think about the business!

Cherry-- yes, we need to talk! I miss you so much! There's a big hole in my heart for you!

Paige-- well I took a photography class in highschool, but that was more on how to use a 35mm camera... but anyway, my pictures are totally not awesome at all until I use google's picasa to edit them. Then they look way better! And it's free to download onto your computer! It's so fun. I got addicted a few weeks ago.

Jessy-- You soooo did not harrass me- I loved having you over! And anyway, we are not strangers anymore. :) I'm glad to have you over anytime!! And I told Natasha that you made homemade laundry soap that's just powder and it fits in a (relatively) small jar, and she wants your recipe. :)

What a beautiful, beautiful, absolutely handsome big boy! Loved to hear about Ezie eating bananas. Can't wait to see you again, little man.
