This is Lizzie our German Shepherd.


Her real name when my mother in law and husband got her was Lizzie Fleischerheim. 🙂 She is amazing with our son but she licks a little to much! lol


She thought she was a baby then. LOL I can’t seem to find a picture of them together. I know I have one but I can’t find it. So, here is a picture of my husband and her a while back. LOL They only bad thing I can say about her is the licking. The rest is all good.

Fun times

Who would like to see my husband and I write a blog together? Any ideas on what to write. Ahhh son is eating cord.

Grab the tissues

No Charge for Love


A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell.
He painted a sign advertising the 4 pups and
set about nailing it to a post on the edge of
his yard. As he was driving the last nail into the
post, he felt a tug on his overalls. He looked
down into the eyes of little boy.

“Mister,” he said, “I want to buy one of your

“Well,” said the farmer, as he rubbed the sweat
off the back of his neck, “These puppies come
from fine parents and cost a good deal of money.”

The boy dropped his head for a moment. Then
reaching deep into his pocket, he pulled out a
handful of change and held it up to the farmer.

“I’ve got thirty-nine cents. Is that enough to take
a look?”

“Sure,” said the farmer. And with that he let out
a whistle. “Here, Dolly!” he called.

Out from the doghouse and down the ramp ran
Dolly followed by four little balls of fur.

The little boy pressed his face against the chain
link fence. His eyes danced with delight. As the
dogs made their way to the fence, the little boy
noticed something else stirring inside the doghouse.

Slowly another little ball appeared, this one noticeably
smaller. Down the ramp it slid. Then in a somewhat
awkward manner, the little pup began hobbling toward
the others, doing its best to catch up….

“I want that one,” the little boy said, pointing to the
runt. The farmer knelt down at the boy’s side and said,
“Son, you don’t want that puppy.

He will never be able to run and play with you like these other dogs would.”
With that the little boy stepped back from the fence,
reached down, and began rolling up one leg of his

In doing so he revealed a steel brace running down
both sides of his leg attaching itself to a specially made

Looking back up at the farmer, he said, “You see sir,
I don’t run too well myself, and he will need someone
who understands.”

With tears in his eyes, the farmer reached down and
picked up the little pup.
Holding it carefully he handed it to the little boy.

“How much?” asked the little boy. “No charge,”
answered the farmer, “There’s no charge for love.”





Today has been a good day so far and I hope it keeps getting better. I got our bedroom cleaned finally. haha With a baby its hard to clean but he was nice today, I am letting him sleep and I’m trying to get clothes washed. On another note I am going to start more baby-lead weaning with Junior soon. I found a really cool website so we will see, He pretty much already does blw but he does eat some purees still. I’m going to add some pictures of him in this blog. Does anyone have an idea for a blog?

Oh I went to my friends baby shower and it was good. I got to try carrot cake for the first time ever. i liked it intil my stomach started hurting!!! 🙂 I had my doctors appointment and my heart and lungs are great! Praise the Lord!Image

My wonder husband and son

I love sleeping babes


I love when my son takes nap because it gives me time to relax. This picture was taken when he first woke up. He is extremely happy when he first wakes up and it brings me joy. He of course nursed the entire time but he gets enough sleep that it makes him happy. I put him down so I could type and he knocked over the space heater and is now into the diapers. He is a very busy little boy. No matter what I do he loves the heater but it’s the kind that won’t burn him if he touches it. He makes me very happy to know that he feels safe to explore. On another note we are having to re home our dog tomorrow due to her peeing on the babies things. She just is not liking the new baby at all. I just hope it all works out for the best. Please keep us in your prays. I need to be going because he’s eating the cord.
