So, here is what has been going on this past month:
Like I said we have been busy with our real estate business. We sold one house last month and had just put an offer in on another when our client lost his job. It was really sad. They were really excited about their new home. We have another house that should close in a few weeks and two properties listed for sale. AND we took on another Real Estate agent. Busy, but exciting.
Paige started smiling Some of Paige's first smiles
I love it when she wrinkles her nose!I'm starting to get a handle on having five kids. I bought a Baby Bjorn a few weeks ago so I can use both hands to clean up around the house. The kids have been so good at helping out. One Sunday, as I was getting ready for church, I walked past Ashlyn's room and saw Lauren helping Ashlyn get ready for church without being asked. I found a new note on my laundry room white board.More than once, I've woken up morning (after Jason leaves for work) in the middle of these two!I found the greatest babysitter! Jessica is a natural mom and is SO good with Paige and Ashlyn. I came home one evening and found her with Paige in the Baby Bjorn, cleaning up the kitchen!! She is awesome!We went to the Bay Area to pick up our old RV from Stephen. Jason hadn't been back to his mom's house since she passed away three years ago. It was emotional being there.
This is what Jason had to say:
"Paige Hope was born on the third anniversary of my mom's death. Yesterday, Tara and I took Paige to my mom's favorite places to sit and I took a moment to introduce them. Tara snapped this picture and I love it...I've come back to this picture probably 20 times since I posted it. It brings tears to my eyes every time, but it captures how I was feeling in the moment perfectly. I was sad that my mom wasn't there to hold Paige, but I felt so strongly that my mom was there telling me that she held Paige long before I did..."
