I’m taking a moment to share our picture from Sunday. Our church had “Old Fashion Day” and I was so excited to get all of my family dressed up. It was so much fun!
Well, here I am again, long pauses between posts…
Short but will answer some questions all of you might have been wondering about, so, here it goes!
- We’re all doing great
- NO I’M NOT PREGNANT!
- Kloe is potty trained
- Raegan is working on it
- Brayden isn’t close
- Brianna is almost 10 months old
- Did I mention that I am NOT pregnant?
Okay…so this might be longer than what I originally planned it to be. I want to cover something with y’all. I would like to return to blogging on a more regular basis but I don’t want to hear the name calling, the rudeness and quite frankly, the anger that I have received on here before. There has been a lot to happen in the last 3 years and I have had to learn to stand up for myself and realize that I deserve respect just as much as any other individual out there, no matter what I may believe that you don’t agree with. I’m reminded of a quote from Dr. Seuss, “A Person’s A Person, No Matter How Small”. No matter what I believe, how I choose to raise my kids or who I have married…its all a matter of respect! I realize that respect is something earned and I believe that I have earned it. So, please, show some respect.
On a lighter note…
It never ceases to amaze me at how time flies by. I didn’t realize it had been so long since my last post. The kids are growing so fast and watching them discover new things by the day has been a blast! And I’ll admit it, I am SUPER busy being wife and mommy…but I wouldn’t change it. To have someone who needs you, depends on you and loves you regardless is something special and irreplaceable and not to be taken for granted.
It’s so hard to believe how fast time seems to be going already. My sweet little 6 pounder is now 10 chunky pounds and doing good. I believe she has colic though. I’ve found a swaddling method that has worked wonders for her and has helped greatly! We’ve settled into life as a family of 6 and have found that we are VERY happy! It’s amazing though how many comments we get and unintentionally hear as we go out to eat or walk through a store. You’d think we were some kind of foreign species. LOL
All kidding aside, I feel so blessed to have the family that I have and I can’t wait to see what God has in store for us!
As I sit here in the van waiting on Josh to come out of Lowes, I have found myself thinking about why it is and who it is that has made this freedom to sit in my vehicle with my kids and wait on my husband to make a purchase…
I want to thank everyone who is serving or who has served in the military and is fighting or has fought for us to have the freedoms we have. My grandfather gave his life serving his country and he will be in my mind all weekend as we celebrate this Memorial Day weekend.
🎶We live in a country, the greatest on Earth. Her flag stands for freedom and for what it is worth. She stands in the harbor, Miss Liberty calls. All have gave some but some gave it all for me to be blessed.🎶
This past Monday a devastating EF-5 tornado ripped through the town of Moore, OK. It destroyed many homes and has claimed the lives of 24 people, 9 of those children. Pray for the people of this town as they try to recover from the loss of life and the massive damage to their town.
