Eight Months

And so it begins. Two teeth and more to come.

Addy’s mom was happy to capture these photos of Addy before she crawled away as fast as she could go, out of the room and down the hall. We say it over and over again…these little ones grow so fast and change so much in the first year of life!

Our counter tops will be installed late Tuesday or first thing Wednesday. Then Dear has to hook up the sink, disposal, dishwasher, attach the fixtures and install the cook top. Good thing he’s retired! After all that is said and done, he’ll be working on the backsplash. I’m happy it will be done and beautiful by Christmas! I will not start decorating for Christmas for at least another week or so…

Since things are already chaotic here, I cleaned out and set aside many glasses, goblets, vases, and other tchotchke to donate to Salvation Army. It’s amazing what you find in that cupboard above the refrigerator that you need a step ladder to get into!

tchotchke: (/ˈtʃɒtʃkə/ CHOCH-ka) is a small bauble or miscellaneous item. The word has long been used by Jewish-Americans and in the regional speech of New York City and elsewhere. The word may also refer to free promotional items dispensed at trade shows, conventions, and similar commercial events.

I would like you to all be thankful for your counter tops and sinks with running water to wash up or rinse and cook tops with power to boil or saute! Blessings!

  1. Don’t know what we’ve got until it’s gone! A fully functioning kitchen is something we often take for granted…until the little things become a big, huge, hairy deal!!!!🤪 Fingers crossed 🤞🏽 that you’ll have things back up and running sooner than later. Meanwhile, the baby is cute chewing on her 8 month marker! Eight months, then eight years, then 18…all in the blink of an eye!

  2. I smiled when I read about the cabinet over the refrigerator. I just went through the stuff above mine and got rid of most of it.

  3. I just want to reach out and (gently) squeeze that cute little pudding-face! You must be busting with pride! I can relate to the tchotchkes – when we moved from Ohio, we had to be ‘brutal’ with ourselves about giving away all these little items we had accumulated ….

  4. Hello, I can only imagine life during a kitchen renovation. Not a happy time! Your little Addy is so cute, 8 months seems to fly by. Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

  5. Love Addy’s eight month pictures! Yes indeed . . . they change so much that first year! Maybe on her first birthday, you can make a photo collage of all 12 months. That would be fun to see!

    Looking forward to seeing your kitchen remodel!
