Life is moving by just as fast as ever. Before you know it another week, month, season has passed you by and you're left wondering what happened in those moments you were just rushing through. I used to wish the work week away so that I could enjoy the weekend with my family. Now I find myself wishing the days by so that Lennie can finally get home to help me. Here I have exactly what I was wishing for, time with my kids, and now I am wishing that away as well.
I need to stop. I need to enjoy these moments, even though most of them are hard, tiring and filled with tears ... there's and mine. I need to appreciate the opportunity I have to work from home and be involved more in my childrens' lives. I get to be the one to raise my children. That is priceless and if all goes well, they will be better for it.
Thank you! Thank you for capturing these moments of life, even when they are dirty and miserable and I just need someone to say it's going to be okay. That I'm not alone and I will get through this. Thank you for keeping a record of our memories even when mine easily fades. I am so grateful to have these seemingly ordinary photos that will be a priceless journal of our lives, the laughter, the funny toddler comments, the milestones. All these tiny seconds that are so easily forgotten, but come flooding back so quickly when I look through my feed. You are a gift and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Gav was a good boy at the Dr. and they gave him a stamp. He thought it was so brilliant to stamp his face, my little artist.
We started the potty training journey. Pee pee is going great and Gav loves standing up. #2 on the other hand is proving to be a bit more difficult. "Mama I pooped a meatball in my pants" seems to be a daily quote in our home.
This pretty baby has joined the allergy band wagon with her brothers although you wouldn't know it by this adorable face.
"My daughter will never wear a princess dress to Disneyland." Yep, eating my words. How could you not love this?!
Documenting the rough days, so I can appreciate those good ones.
Oh the joys of the postpartum life. Receding hairlines are so in this Fall!
The girl loves her Ergo. I certainly can't complain, I love constant snuggles.
The boys helped me decorate for Halloween and they love the Zombie Zone caution tape on the door. My boys love them some Zombies!
Gav had a rough night at Disneyland. He was hanging on the turn style bars and fell back and split his head open, blood gushing everywhere. He ended up being okay, no stitches needed. Hoping he learned that lesson.
Kennie and her Papa watching General Conference. I caught her mid yawn, such a doll. She loves her Papa!
We took the boys on an outing to the Museum and finished a great day with Krispy Kreme doughnuts. The boys were loving watching them being made.
We haven't had a family photo with all of us together so we took new ones to use on my blog redesign. I love not being the only girl in the photos anymore!
Last Sunday we blessed Kennedy with her cousin Ginger. It was a beautiful day surrounded with family and friends. She is a lucky little girl is loved by so many.
We are battling a fever and new molars. Dylie refuses to take any meds so he is just suffering through, as are we. Tonight he fell asleep like this because he refused to take his chewables.
Then this happened. Just when you think you can't make it through the day, Heavenly Father blesses you with a moment of pure bliss. While Dylan napped downstairs we all cuddled upstairs in our bed. These are the moments that make life worth living. We are so blessed.
