A peak into the AmyJ Delightful Household...

I've been trying to take more pics of everyday life again...  So here are a few glimpses into the past month and half, here in our home!  ... along with a few random thoughts :)

Let me just start with the fact that my son is stinkin' naughty... and stinkin' cute.  
He exhausts me daily... and makes me thankful for a little boy, daily.

Then let me add that I have a hard time keeping clothes on my children.  I dress them at the beginning of the day... and then clothes just disappear.  I don't know why.  They just do. 

I've been frustrated with my inability to take some good maternity shots of myself....
For one thing, I just can't take the shots that I see in my head!  I wish I could step out of myself and be in both places :)  Jeremy tried to help me a couple times, but it's nearly impossible to convey what I see in my head to him accurately and then have him actually do it in a technical sense with my camera.  not his fault... it's just how it is.  (I might be pouting a little...)

Then the other thing is... I don't like how I look this pregnancy.  ...started out 10 pounds overweight, and just feel pudgy and round.  ha, ha... that makes me laugh typing that.  oh, well, it's true.

So this shot above was taken during my attempt to get a good shot of my belly.  I never really got a good one... and as you can see V interrupted and I gave up.  Oh, well... I still have a couple months to get a few good pics.

A quick snap shot... better than nothing I guess!

V was sick this day...  don't know why I snapped this, but it does show my belly at around 24weeks. Yes, I'm huge :)

Elsie loves to "read" stories to Sadie...

It doesn't get much cuter than a fuzzy headed little girl cashed out in a big chair :)

This was just yesterday...  So typical: Alice doing her school work and V desperately trying to stay the center of attention.

This was today...  V likes to climb up into my computer chair and stand behind me.  He wraps his little arms around my neck and goes from side to sides asking for kisses :)  love it.   ... had my camera on the desk, so I asked him to pose with me.

That's it!
I'll keep trying on the maternity pics thing... hopefully I'll get a good shot or two to show you the awesomeness of my belly in all it's enormity :) 



  1. You make me laugh! I had Nate try to take pictures of my belly the other night...let's just say the nine year old lacked enthusiasm and my vision wasn't getting captured. Too bad you don't live closer and we could snap pictures for each other ;)

  2. You don't look huge to me. By the way you have beautiful children!


  3. sorry you're having a hard time with the way you look this time around! the way i felt about myself really varied with each pregnancy and so i understand! if you find yourself in kansas, i would meet up with you and do your maternity pictures! :)

  4. Oh our boys are apparently cut from the same cloth in Heaven. I mean this is the story of my life and I only have one other one to keep up with, so I feel ya. But as frustrating as they are they are dang sweet and loving. My Micah just squeezes me so tight and says "I love ju MUCH! mommy!" over and over. I mean be still my heart.

    And the clothes totally relate to that too, as all the pics of Micah involve him pantless. I do try, my excuse is he is potty training and dribbles to much to wear pants. HA!

    Great pics. I wish I had that talent. I should work on it! HA!

  5. Awwww! Great pictures! I don't have little ones any more. You babies are adorable!!

  6. Cute pictures! I just discovered your blog today (via Raising Up Rubies, via Better Homes and Gardens). I love the sweet free printables you have, and want to say I also have 4 little girls and 1 boy, and 1 baby (we aren't finding out) on the way, just about a month later than you! I can relate to feeling huge and knowing it's only going to get worse before it gets better! Hang in there. :)
