Baltic Amber necklace for teething

Soooo, I'm a tad bit skeptical about the effectiveness of using a baltic amber necklace for Jubilee to help reduce teething pain. I still don't completely understand how it's suppose to work but so many mama's swear by them. So, I ordered one for little miss.

Amber is a natural analgesic and all the articles I read about why it works makes sense. You can read more about 'why' this works here.

If anything, she looks so stinkin' cute wearing it :)

Oh and little miss just discovered her little tootsies...she is pretty fascinated by them...
I am too...they are sooo cute!

Jubilee's dedication

We had the incredible privilege of having our little Miss Jubilee dedicated earlier this month....on...Orphan cool is that!!! Nothing brings us greater joy then publicly dedicating our babes to the Lord. It is only by His incredible blessings that we have been entrusted with these treasures. We are so blessed to be part of a body that loves us, supports us, and holds us accountable in raising our babes in the ways of the Lord.
For some reason, unbeknownst to me, our Sarah girl found it appropriate to stick her tongue out the ENTIRE time at her uncle who was taking pictures. Mind you...our sanctuary has TEN HUGE TV's...aacckk!!!
Cana girl thought it was the best time to tickle Jubilee's feet while Solomon thought it was the perfect time to make a mad dash on to the stage....
Life is quite the adventure with 7 kiddos...three of them being 5!!!

Just some fun cuteness of our girl who is ALREADY 5 months old...crazy!!!!


Precious, beautiful boys! Do you see little boys as beautiful??? Oh, they are wonderfully beautiful!

Being a mama to both boys and girls has been quite the adventure. Adventure you say?? Yep, see I have all sisters so when our first born was a boy, I wasn't sure what I was going to do with him.  14 years later, I have realized that it's the girls I don't know what to do!  The boys are the 'easy' one's :)

I get the whole "sugar and spice and everything nice" but come on...who doesn't love having a mama's boy??

There are sooo many precious boys waiting for families...desperate for a forever family but they are getting passed by simply because they are boys.

The thought that he...
could still be confined behind institution walls is an unbearable thought!  Our Solomon has brought us so much think we could have missed's unimaginable!

The reality that he....
 and he....
 and he are waiting...
clinging to hope that they will have a family to love care for them when they are scared or hungry or lonely.

Come read about these boys and others like them...pray for me advocate for them...
