It’s the Small Things

July 5, 2012

I find that it can be tough to slow down, to take those moments with my kids, to enjoy them. Instead, I get caught up in blogging, texting, emailing, and other social media. Those things aren’t bad, but I just need to remember to limit my time online.

So, this morning the Joker says to me, “Sit down next to me, Mommy.”

I do.

Then she says, “I love your hair, Mommy.”

I tell her I love her hair, too.

Then she touches my face very seriously, and says, “I love your face, Mommy.”

I expected her to say that she loves me, not my face, so I start laughing, and tell her I love her face, too.

One moment like that can make my morning. How blessed I am to be her Mommy.

The Week That Was…

July 3, 2012

This last week consisted mostly of wedding things. My sister-in-law got married on Saturday and that meant lots of wedding prep, visiting with friends from out of town, eating lots of yummy food, and no sleep. 🙂

Our Princess Has a Birthday

June 14, 2012

The Princess turns 5 today. Where did the time go? Seriously.

Only a few days old

The Princess was the easiest baby (something we didn’t realize until we had the twins). She was so easy-going, and hardly ever cried.

Me and my girl

First Birthday– begging like a puppy.

We have a very sweet, kind, and sensitive girl on our hands.

And she’s the best big sister. She loves to help out, and to boss them around. She sounds like a mini-me sometimes. Haha.

silly big sister

Happy Birthday to my Princess! We love you! 🙂
