Sweet Pea

Isn't she darling? She's even darling at midnight, three a.m., five a.m., and six a.m. At least she was last night. She's rolling over like a pro, at three-and-a-half months, and continues to delight us with her smiles and giggles. Even Ben gets regular smiles from her now. Ben still scares her silly sometimes, he's yet to decipher what 'indoor voice' means, but we're having fun, and that's what matters.

What about you?

i am: a blog junkie

i think: about my loved ones, near and far, all the time

i know: i am incredibly blessed

i want: my children to know and love Jesus

i have: a wonderful husband

i wish: i could clone myself to meet all of the immediate needs of my little ones, and have a clean house at the same time

i hate: when the kids in our neighborhood are unkind to Ben

i miss: my niece Paige terribly

i fear: loss

i feel: tired, but happy as Cameron keeping me up all night must mean she's a healthy, thriving girl

i hear: sweet silence, as Ben is playing at his grandparent's house, and Cameron is napping

i smell: my lavender & rosemary diffuser

i crave: dark chocolate

i search: for Ben's sippy cups constantly

i wonder: sometimes, if I'm getting through to Ben (he's two, he's very two)

i regret: not having my children earlier

i love: hearing my kids laugh, it's a magical sound

i ache: for my friend Sarah, her little boy is so sick

i care: about what my family eats

i always: organize things

i am not: good at letting the little things go

i believe: that this is the best time of my life

i dance: with my silly Ben when we watch the music scene in Cars, and with Cameron when she needs some soothing

i sing: (terribly) "Lullabye" when I rock my babies

i cry: almost never

i don’t always: get the much-needed daily shower

i fight: the aging process

i write: on my blog and via email, rarely a real note

i win: most arguments

i lose: sleep when I'm anxious

i never: go a day without chocolate

i confuse: my words, now that sleep deprivation is at it's highest level

i listen: to Greg reading Ben his bed time stories

i can usually be found: in my sweet house, with my family

i am scared: of big gross bugs

i need: to vent when the day has been long and hard

i am happy about: the sweet, small moments that remind me why I'm here at home, being their mother, and that this job is so worth the hard times

What about you?

Fourth of July

No big Fourth of July pictures . . . Ben ran a fever, so in we stayed. We did have yummy tenderloin for dinner (thanks Mimi and Papa), and enjoyed a quiet Friday together.
