I've concluded that The Bean is already growing too fast for my liking. I have no idea how much she has gained but, my goodness, she seems big already.
I've decided that her and I are going to have a special bond.
First, Bean was born one day before my 28th birthday.
May birthdays are easily overlooked in these parts, as I may have pointed out before, because it's our business' craziest time of year so she and I will find ways to celebrate all on our own.
She also is the only one of my children who has my coloring.
This goes to show that you should be careful what you pray for.
Early in our marriage I prayed that our kids would have Hub's beautiful blue eyes. After two kids who are as pale, blonde haired and blue eyed I prayed for one who had my coloring. And... ta da!
I'm here to give it.
Mak has brought pure joy into my life these days.
She has the most fantastic facial expressions and knows just when to use them.
I watched her use her wiles on Hubs the other night. The kids were having a rough night and just as he was at his end Mak offered up a huge snaggle-toothed grin and he crumbled.
She melts my heart.
OH! And she's finally walking! Praise God!
I L.O.V.E. how she swishes her little booty when she walks. I only want to put ruffly skirts on her now just to watch her shake it.
CJ has made motherhood a real project these days.
Completely ignores instruction.
Where did he learn this stuff?!
I'm amazed at the fact that here is no need to teach that kind of thing. My sweet boy is a sinner and there's no getting around it. Boo!
He's so witty!
It's a treat to watch him grow and understand concepts even if it makes his disobedience all the more creative!
Rain. Rain. and MORE RAIN!
We manage to get out of the house for grocery shopping and to take walks around the greenhouse.
I must tell you... he's an AMAZING big brother!
Lady toddlers, beware!... he may break your heart some day.
Oh! I forgot to mention my favorite thing!
All three of the kids nap at the same time every day!
