Pictures of the kids

Here's my crew.
Oldest: 11 year old Animal Lover
Likes horses and crocodiles and every animal in between. A bit shy with strangers.
Has a keep-to-it attitude.

2nd: 9 year old Bookworm
She'll read anything, anytime. Very intelligent, a grade ahead in school. Not at all shy.
Has great initiative to do things. Also good with the little ones.


3rd: 8 year old Young Man
Modest about reading skills (he picked it up really quickly). Likes to organize.
Likes to work with dad. A really hard worker. Dad brags that he can work as hard as a grown man.

4th: 6 year old Actor
This kid is the life of the party. Talkative, humorous, dramatic. He's very light-hearted and doesn't hold grudges. Love those dimples!

5th: 5 year old Mr. Serious
He likes to have things stay the same. Very helpful and giving. Always willing to give a hug. Perfectly content to sit with mom and be quiet.

6th: 4 year old Princess
Dolls, dress-up, pretty things - that's her world. Also a really hard worker. Can do things that probably most 4 year olds can't. Loves to play mama and princess. Very feminine. (this one looks just like her daddy)

7th: 3 year old Lovebug/Charmer
Those big blue-green eyes will steal your heart. He's helpful, willing to do as told, likes to come to mama and daddy's room early in the morning or even in the middle of the night. Total daddy's boy. Loves to spend time playing and hugging daddy.

8th: 1 (almost 2) year old Little Mama
This picture is kind of old, taken in the fall of last year. We affectionately call her "Blondie" for her blond curls. She favors her older sister (the second born) except she's a little more delicate looking. Loves to boss everyone around and play the Little Mama. She even bosses the dogs. Right now her favorite word is *wince* "Shut" - meaning "shut-up".

9th: 10 1/2 month old Baby
He's truly the baby of the family (so far), but tries to keep up with the others. Especially since he started crawling. He loves to still wake up mama in the middle of the night to nurse. He loves the water. One night daddy brought him in to take a shower with mama and he loved it. Kept slapping at the spray.




And there you have it. My crew. Hope you enjoyed it. :)



Until next time...

What beautiful kids, and great pictures! So when are you expecting #10? :) I think it's cool that you have 9 children and know them all as unique individuals, likes and dislikes, etc. People who do not have more than one or two kids don't get that you CAN still spend individual time with each of them and get to know them each! It just takes a lot more planning! LOL! I've only got 4 so far, so I'm only getting a taste of it, but I know it is possible. :) Great job, Mama!

Oh!!!! I just typed another LONG comment including how your page opened right up and then it shut down and deleted...

Well, I think your family is beautiful and appreciate you taking the time to share them with us today. You should put their pictures and little summaries on your side bar...makes it easy for us readers to remember who they are.

And the rest I will have to type in an email later... lunch is ready, cookies baking, bread rising...lots to do!

What precious children. That's a great little glimpse! About your comment on my blog in response to my comment on your blog:
You have Cindy's blog linked to yours. Her blog image is on your right sidebar (kids at the beach). Do the large plants in the dirt square in my picture look anything like the pepper plants you had? I sure would like to know if they are actually peppers. I'm such a novice gardener!
