This is an adorable little children’s book. It is about a little boy Conrad, who goes to visit his uncle’s ranch. He things he is prepared with his Mega Ultimate Extreme First Aid Kit. He seems to get into trouble at every turn. You can just imagine all the things little boys can get into on a ranch!
Through it all, there’s the nosy little neighbor girl, Imogene. She likes to tell him how to do things, and to beat it all, that little girl is right most of the time. If only she could tell him before he gets into trouble.
In the end, Imogene needs a little help herself, and there comes Conrad, with his Mega Ultimate Extreme First Aid Kit!
I was given a free copy of this book by the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.
Eva, sweet Eva
- 20 Months old in a few days
- Has learned about 10 new words this month, including “no.” She can whine, too. “NoooooOOoo, MooooOOmmmy.” 🙂 Other words are yes, good girl and uh-huh (with a whole-body nod)
- Can get out of bed by herself, which Jackson nor Timothy learned to do
- Looks funny when she tries to give kisses
- Loves to sing (in bed instead of falling asleep)
- Throws her head back in despair, and sometimes her spine just can’t hold her up… when she doesn’t get her way. Also throws herself in the floor sometimes (oh dear!)
- Loves to climb (see below)
She’s our cutie pie and we all love her! She keeps us on our toes, on our knees, and in a constant smile!
I have mixed feelings about this very special day. It seems like Eva should still be a newborn. But she’s already an entire year old. My tiny bundle is now walking, babbling, fussing at her brothers. She is precious. She is a gift from God. I am so glad she’s in our family. She is always ready with a smile. She loves to empty cabinets, play in the toilet, and see how many things she can unload from my purse. She shivers when she touches a grape. She likes to eat dirt. She yells when the cat comes near. She adores her brothers unless they are being pests.
She’s our Eva Joy… for one year!
Sometimes the boys play so creatively. Yesterday was one of those days. Jackson was playing in the yard and started using some old pipes and guttering that was laying around. (We bought a fixer-upper… and we always are!) He connected it and put bowls or buckets between each piece. It was so cute! So… I let him turn on the water hose for a couple minutes to try it out. Once, he had a pipe going up the ladder on the slide so it could go down the slide and catch another pipe at the bottom. I love it! It never worked like he thought, but it made it almost to the last pipe by the end of the day. He was so excited when it went into the bowl before that last pipe! My son… a genuis 4-year-old! 🙂
We’re all smiles today! It’s been a whole season since the kick-off of the last big event!
The ramps are in place, the gas cans are filled.
The blades have been sharpened, and bolted back on!
We’ll miss Daddy! We have to kiss him because he’ll be gone… two hours!
It’s time, it’s time! It’s mowing season!
Jackson got a floor puzzle for Christmas. He loves it! It is 2×3 feet. He is getting pretty good at putting it together. He needs some occasional help, and generally whines a lot during the process. But he’s getting better!
Jackson turned 4 on December 28! 4! I can’t believe it. He is growing so fast and getting so independent.
- He’s starting to like drawing and cutting.
- He can write an “A.”
- He can unload the dryer.
- He can put on all his own clothes, the right way. 🙂
- He can put toothpaste on his own tooth brush.
- He can quote some Bible verses.
He’s our big boy and we’re thankful for him!
My Eva girl in sweet leggings. I love her. I just love to dress her up. I love her bows and frills. I love her 23 hours a day! There is that one hour in the middle of the night when “like” is a better word than “love.” But seriously, I know she is growing so fast, and will soon outgrow her night feedings. Pretty soon, she’ll start pulling off her headbands. Pretty soon, she’ll be under my feet when I’m busy.
I’m glad she’s still little.
Our precious little Eva is almost five months old! That is so extremely hard to believe, considering the last two weeks of my pregnancy lasted three months! But nevertheless, she is such a sweet part of our lives. We love to cuddle her, and love on her. She gives us the biggest grins! It’s amazing how such a little person, in such a short time takes such a big place!
Little screamer, cute though she may be:
Dressed in her church bonnet:
Love her sleeping cheeks!
Watching movies with the biggest brother:
Yes, she’s our girl!
