Five Generation family photos

Any guesses on how Mr. Moose felt about his photo shoot? I LOVE this picture, so much I bought an 8x10 of it to frame! He has the cutest little frown when he gets sad . . . is that bad to say its cute he is sad? I dunno, but its cute none the less.

Mr Moose posing with mama in his tie. He wasn't a very happy baby for pictures, he was tired and read to eat, sleep and be done with the whole thing.

Here moose is posing with his Great- Great Grandmother.

Five generations, My Grandmother Pat, Mother Cheryl, Me Katrina, Jayme and baby Gabriel

Overall, things are going pretty well for all of us. Our visit with Gramma was nice, she is safely back in California. I guess one advantage to being a young mama is that we get to have several generations together at once. It keeps it interesting *hehehe*

Gabriel had his first ear infection, stemming from a cold. He missed almost a week of daycare/school for Jayme, but he is better and his usually happy/grumpy self again. He is such a smiley baby! He is beginning to coo and bat at objects, Christmas shopping for baby toys is going to be a blast this year!

Jayme is adjusting well to being back in school now. She wakes up much earlier then ever before so she can be ready and out the door by the time the bus picks her up, super early! She is in good spirits, ready for Thanksgiving and Turkey. She has talked about it for months now. We will be doing Thanksgiving as a family, small this year.

Tony and Jayme are at war still. Some things never change I guess. As with everything, there are two sides to the story always. I listen to Jaymes side, but other then the occasional remarks tony leaves here, telling me how sick I make him, he pays no attention to me. Jayme set up a weekend schedule so Tony could come over a few hours a day on the weekends, but he is usually busy or sleeping so that hasn't worked out so well either. Now he is threatening her with court and custody stuff. She was expecting that though, so it is just part of her new life as a mama. I feel bad that they can't make things work out peacefully around parenting time, but its out of my hands. I don't agree with everything that is said and/or done, but its not my child, not my battle to fight, so I stay largely uninvolved. Jayme is doing well with it though, staying level headed and accessing the people that can support her best. I am pretty darn proud of her.

Overall, we are all feeling like life is becoming normal again, the holidays are here, busy but fun times for us. I can't wait to shop for Mr. Moose, in fact I may just go start shopping today! I am eager to see what is in store for us at the Mall!!!

I will update again soon,


  • oh wow! you are all so beautiful! I'm so glad you are all finding your rhythm in this multi-generational household and I'm sorry there is draaaaaaama... I mean, it's par for the course, but the hope is always that once people become parents they can see what's most important and become at least a tiny bit more selfless. I don't even think it's the teen parent thing, some people just don't get it, even as adults. Much love to you, jayme, moose and the gang!
