Week 39 – September 24 – 30, 2012
(completed on 12-11-12)
I was inspired to encourage Henry to bike more after seeing how well Kale (my nephew) rides his bike. I remember Charlie was riding without training wheels by this age. All summer Henry was content running along while the older boys biked, “because I am a fast runner!”
One of the reasons I was drawn to purchase a rainbow wrap is because I love rainbows (plus I got an awesome deal on this size 7 wrap). I recently learned the term “rainbow baby.” Then I decided I needed a photo of my “rainbow baby” (Robbie) wearing my last baby who I have waited a long time to have. I love all four of my babies equally. They each have a special place in my heart. Robbie is the baby that healed my sadness and fulfilled my dream of becoming a mother. And Nola Mae is the daughter I have always dreamed of having.
Nola Mae slept in this baby rocking chair for some of her naps and sometimes when I just needed to put her down. And yes, I didn’t always put the straps on her. Because most of the time I was putting her in there for a few minutes and I was right there. At 5 months old she started to scoot out of it.
And once she would be in this position she would just hang out there. She would smile at me and jabber away.
Then Henry would come along and “rescue” her,
and bring her to me.
The next stage of the kayak.
