I had to share this little video clip with you all, of our little Bud crawling. He does crawl on his hands and knees when he’s on carpet, but usually prefers to slide along on his tummy on the tile and wood floors. He can get around faster that way too.

In this video he is crawling towards me, but the other afternoon he actually “ran” away from me, giggling the whole time, when I went to try and take one of his older brothers toys away from him. The little stinker!

    1. CUTE!!!!

    2. Your floors are crazy clean, girl. I haven't seen floors that clean in… well, let's not go there.

    How adorable! I can't believe how big he is! 🙂

    As soon as your little one is crawling all over the place, you'll have clean floors too, out of necessity! My kids keep lamenting that "it was so much easier when the baby couldn't crawl…" Yep, it's been much more work for all of us, especially since we've had to cut back on the cleaning lady (she was only coming 5-6 hrs a month as it was) to help pay for the braces… We've been keeping the floors swept, but it's time to mop them again – it's been a couple weeks, though you wouldn't know it from the video. Thankfully our tile and the wood in the hallway hide spots SO well! If only the wood in our dining room did the same… 😉

    I can't either… His 1st birthday is just over 3 months away… How can that even be possible?!

    He's too cute and listen to that adorable belly laugh! I think this past year has flown by way too fast. I can hardly get over the fact that my little one will be a year old next month.

    I noticed that too; those floors are gleaming!! (And zero clutter!)

    And another thing: I'm amazed that Bud doesn't zoom over to the bookshelf, and empty it onto the floor like my kids did at that age! He looks like a dream baby 🙂

    Even though mine are no longer at 'that age', they still grab armloads of books. (As did their 4 year old friend the other day.) They all end up on the old floor. You'd think that Montessori school would have effectively taught her the concept of take one at a time and then put it back; my kids seem not to be alone in this. I'm glad they enjoy books and all, but still.

    I was so elated when my five year old flipped through the books on the shelf, without removing any, when they weren't packed in too tightly, but otherwise I might as well be Madam Librarian. All I need is one of those library carts- better yet, one that navigates stairs. lol

    I love this video! My son crawled like that for a while! We called him carpet fish! I enjoy reading about your family – I feel like I know all of you! Please check out my blog at hiseyeisonthesparrowmom.blogspot.com

Prayer of Mothers

Father in heaven, grant me the grace to appreciate the dignity which you have conferred on me. Let me realize that not even the Angels have been blessed with such a privilege—to share in your creative miracle and bring new Saints to heaven. Make me a good mother to all my children after the example of Mary, the Mother of your Son. Through the intercession of Jesus and Mary I ask your continued blessings on my family. Let us all be dedicated to your service on earth and attain the eternal happiness of your kingdom in heaven. Amen.

A Little About Me

Hi! I'm Jessica, a Roman Catholic wife and home educating mother to our nine children. I was home educated myself, along with my eleven younger siblings. I have a special devotion to St. Therese, through whom I have been given much help and many blessings--the beautiful "Shower of Roses" that she has sent my way! Here I will record a few of the blessings I treasure. Please remember that what you see here is just a little glimpse at our lives, so please say a prayer for us, as we continue to strive for holiness.
