20 months & 4 months, my babes

George got married to Paula this past weekend. We attended the wedding which was in DC. It was a hairy weekend to say the least. Truckin two babes under two onto a plane and into a hotel for 3 days and then around town and then back onto a plane, is a bit torturous. Next time we go to DC we will drive!

Coffee Perhaps?

When W and his daddy play, you'll never know what will happen! I think daddy needs another cup of coffee!

How We Affect Our Children

My little Munchkin Moo. He's been a bit ornery lately not listening to much mom or dad says. I've struggled this week with yelling at my bebe. I don't want to yell. I want to speak in a normal voice and be patient, i'm not there. I am better than i was but man how we affect our children. It's hard to be a parent sometimes especially when you're premenstrual and have a headache. I'm glad there is a gracious God who understands while not accepting my bad behaviors but instead giving me the strength and teaching me how to be loving. I used to feel so hopeless and could never imagine having kids b/c of my own past but things aren't hopeless with God and that's why I felt confident enough to have children. It's one of the best decisions i've ever made even though it gets tough, like this week, but I've learned so much from my 1 year old and my 3 month old. They're amazing and such a blessing. It's a fascinating thing, raising children that is.

Twelve Weeks and A Lot of Fun

Super N was 12 weeks on Wednesday. As of now she is a smiling fool! :) I just love it. She's a big talker when she's getting her diaper changed. Just like most women she has the gift of gab already!
She's very sweet and is officially as of last week sleeping through the night...whooo yay!
We also do not put rice cereal in her bottle at night anymore. She doesn't seem to need it and i have a feeling that the rice cereal has contributed to her being 3 months but wearing 6-9 month clothes! She's a lot of fun these days and W wants more than ever to play with her but we still have a few more months until that can happen.
This morning he bonked her in the face with his mega block structure, she didn't bust out crying like i thought she would though. Instead her lip did the quiver thing and then i had an opportunity to distract her by rubbing her cheek and consoling her with my voice. This is new and it's so hard to believe how fast they change!

My Little Kidlets

My babies, i love them so much! People have always said you don't know how much you really love someone until you have kids, it sooo true! It kills me to think of not being there to protect them at all times. I know it's going to be a challenge for me to watch them grow and to allow them their freedom and space. What a stewardship the Hub and i have been given.
