What?! How have I let time get so far away from me??? I spend way too much time reading other people's blogs and not nearly enough time keeping up with my own.
Where to start? We are expecting our third little one in August, August 18th, to be exact, and another little man, to be more exact. We are thrilled. Big sister knew all along the baby was going to be a brother and has even chosen a name, Noah's Ark, still in negotiations, but a darling choice. Big brother ADORES babies, seriously, I've never known a kid to love babies as much. I hope he's as excited when we bring one home to live with us!
The kids are getting so big. I'd include pictures, but well, quite honestly, I haven't taken any in months. I may not be kidding. I don't actually remember how long it has been, but way, way too long. Kind of like the blog!
So, besides, the baby, what's been happening...
Our little girl turned 3! Seriously, she's 3 and while she insists she is still my baby, really, she's turning into a little girl. It thrills my heart and at the same time breaks it. Such a bittersweet time. I suppose that will be the rest of life, reveling in the growth and grieving those precious moments that are gone forever. For now, I enjoy putting her to bed and sharing a pillow, her arm around my neck and her warm breath in my face. Oh how I love her!
Her brother is 18 months old and such a joy. He's learning all sorts of things and loves, loves, loves his sissy and playing outside. He is our official meal time pray-er. He gives thanks for all things, and seriously, sometimes it is ALL things, his mu (milk), ba-berries (blueberries), poon (spoon), ba (bread) sissy, mama, da-da, Bi-ba (Bible), his mu again. We eventually have to cut him off and say, "In Jesus name", so he can wrap up with a loud "Ma-men!" Otherwise we may never eat. Man, how that little guy has captured my heart!
Oh, there is so much more, but it's late and I am determined to walk in the morning, so I'd best get to bed. I'll be back...soon!
