Josiah's birthday, award...

Happy Saturday journal people =D!  I have been so busy the past few days.  I haven't told you all this, but Chelsea and her little family are moving two hours away next week.  I am quite sad to say the least.  I had Chelsea and Josiah over the past three days while Desi has been working his new job out of town.  It was so nice to have little Josiah romping around.  He is talking some now.  He can repeat a lot of words.  He loves to make animal sounds, too!  Whenever he sees me he howls like a hyena, "Owww-oooo", and when he sees my boyfriend he quacks like a duck, "Aaack".  Too funny!  LOL  Josiah turns one on Wednesday.  Wow!  He isn't walking yet.  He pulls himself up on things very well and stands just fine, but the funny thing is when you hold his hands and try to have him walk he always walks on his tip-toes.  We are having his first birthday party in a park today!!  I'm very excited!!


Chelsea's due date is October 7.  They decided on a name - Jonah Alexander.  I love it!!  Josiah will have a little brother.  I am sure they will be best of friends.  Awww...  I'm crocheting a blanket for little Jonah.  I'll try to have a picture of it when I am finished.  Josiah loves his first blanket I crocheted for him.  Actually, I crocheted two for him so far.  I love to crochet.  Well, I need to get off here and get ready for the party!!  It's a barbeque at a park and a pool!

Oh, one more thing!  I got a NEAT award!!  I was excited!  I received a
Blog of the Day Award yesterday!  Wow!  I wanted to let you all know.  There are so many awesome blogs out there.  I am so humbled.  Thank you!


Have a good weekend, everyone! xox

  9. He is growing up so fast.  I know you are sad to see them move away, but they will still be closer than they were before they moved this last time.  That is positive.  Nice job with the Blog of the Day as well.  They did a real nice write up of your journal.  It is well deserved.

  16. Val,
    I know how hard it will be for you if in fact Chelsea & her happy bunch move away.  I will be DEVASTATED to.  As, it is such a pleasure having her work for me, as well as just having all of them in my life.  It also, gives me great pleasure to babysit Josiah as well.  I will truely miss that to.  But, we always will have there visits to look forward to if in fact they do decide to move.  I can't wait for Jonah to arrive as well.  I truely, do not know what I will do when if in fact the time comes I have to hire another aid to replace Chelsea. Because she truely is the BEST aid I have ever had and that is the truth.  Thanks, for bringing her into my life.
    Leslie & Brom
