I haven't posted in a while....things have been hectic to say the least. But click here to see some beautiful pictures that my friend took of our family. She is precious and I am so thankful to have her in my life. Now my children can look back at these and will know they actually did have a mom growing up. :)

Eli's 3rd birthday was today....12:13am to be exact. Wow. 3 years ago today I was in the hospital, just Eli and I cuddling in my hospital room, listening to a woman give birth loudly in the room next door. 7 pounds, 1 ounce, he was skinny as rail and still is to this day. What a little man I have.
In fact, we have decided to give up naps. Though we had a rocky start, it is going well now. BUT, if we happen to be out in the afternoon, he sometimes will fall asleep in the car. Sometimes he is easily awakened...other times, it is like waking the beast. But rarely there are times when nothing will wake him up. Those are the days of lots of activity....that was today.
With preschool in the morning that included yummy cupcakes (made with love by Eli and I) to share with his preschool friends, goodie bags to give out, a firetruck visit, then to Mom Mom's house for a few hours, it was a fun filled, packed day. And while putting forth my best efforts to keep him awake on the way home, including singing to him (which is like nails on a chalkboard I assure you) he ended up falling asleep within 3 minutes of reaching home. When I got him out of the car, he was done. Nothing was waking this kid. I put him inside the door on a chair and he didn't wake. I put him on the coffee table ottoman and tried to bribe him to wake no avail. So this is what happened and I had to take some pictures.

He was sleeping so soundly, it was can one sleep in THAT position on a coffee table for crying out loud? But as I was taking these pictures, I began to realize how big he has become and how fast that 3 years went. Looking at his sleeping face, so serene.

His hair....beautiful hair that many mistake for a girl's hair. Just because he has good hair genes (from yours truly!) AND it is long doesn't make him a girl. Newsflash, long hair on boys is in. But if it gets longer than his shoulders, we have a problem and I need an intervention.

I just could not stop looking at this beautiful face and marveling in God's creation. This little boy was wonderfully made by God and given to us to raise and for us to guide him to know Jesus as his Savior. This little boy is my joy. Happy 3rd birthday, joy of my life.

oldie, but goodie.....


Sooo, I don't really have much to say. I just feel like I haven't updated the blog in a while. I uploaded some older pics from my pocket camera and came across these. Evie was about 3 and a half months old, I believe. Anyway, hopefully my next post will be more exciting....
