Big Day for the Luber Household!

Well... kinda. It's been a big last two weeks, actually. But that doesn't make for the best-sounding post-title, now does it? Anyways, let's recap, shall we?...

- Two dall sheep down to fill the freezers (Scott and Steve each got one)
- One caribou down to fill the freezers as well (Way to go Joel!)
- Paisley was left with "babysitters" for the first time! (So Mama could have some much-needed "her-time" while the Boys were out playing.)
- Paisley started crawling! ...And thus started opening cabinet doors, dumping baskets of pinecones, and attempting to eat who-knows-what off our floors before I can run across the room and pry it from her cute, little hands. Ooh, let the games begin!
- Paisey began feeding herself for the first time - picking up bits of salmon and raspberries off her tray, and having those bits actually make it IN to her mouth! And I gotta throw this out there - she was using her left hand the whole time... Kinda interesting! We'll see where that goes...

Okay... speaking of the Lil' Pea, she has also figured out that she can get my attention by whining even if she really doesn't need anything, and is attempting that tactic as I write.

Well... I guess she wins this one - better go.

So... Just noticed that the links didn't match the online photo albums from a couple posts back...

They're fixed now! Hope it didn't confuse too many of ya! ; )

Who Knew?...

Who knew that cookies and emails and ice cream in the hot, Guatemalan sun would lead to a marriage proposal?

Who knew that marrying your favorite person really would give you a best friend for life?

Who knew that all those terrible things people tell you about first years of marriage are never doomed to come true?

Who knew that it really is true that you can love your spouse more and more with every passing day?

Who knew that there would be "enough" love to add a third to our "family?"

Who knew that a baby would bring more joy and love to our life than we thought it could ever hold?

Who knew that middle of the night feedings would bring more smiles than frowns?

Who knew that screams and tears would evoke love and not frustration (okay, let's be real... most of the time, that is!)?

Who knew that a little smile could make your heart just swell inside your chest?

Who knew that you could still go adventuring, even with a kiddo?

Who knew that yogurt could be so much fun to experience again, yet through a little one's taste buds this time?

Who knew that this whole "becoming one"-thing would be by far the best adventure of our lives?

Who knew that after almost 5 years of marriage, I would be left absolutely speechless as to how amazed of and how thankful I am for my husband? Words simply do not do justice...

And who knew that after even 7 years of sheep hunts, I would miss my husband more now than ever before?!...

Who knew?
