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.
Today I’ve decided to do my blogging from my phone. It’s amazing to me how far technology has advanced since I was a kid. It used to be that a phone was just that, a phone…now a cell phone is practically a lifeline for most folks. Heaven help if you leave home without it! (I admit to being guilty here). A phone is now a phone, GPS, camera, social life, computer, calendar and datebook, game system and so much more.
Different topic now…
The kiddos have been…what’s the word…toddlers, the past few days. They haven’t really played as well as they normally do and they’ve been on the cranky side of things. I find myself wondering if it has anything to do with the upcoming arrival of baby #4 now that we are only 5 1/2 weeks out from the due date. I wonder if they sense that she’ll soon be here and how things will change once she is here. Or if maybe it’s just me and they have been this way and its just my pregnancy hormones that have had me on edge. Whatever the case is…our lives are about to change!
