This boy of mine cracks me up.  He puts things up around his eyes and calls them "particulars" (binoculars).  He just has the funniest way of looking at life, and here was our lunch today.  Plus, it gave me a chance to play with my new camera.

Need I say more?

I love this girl. More than words. Need I say more?

Conference Sunday!

Chocolate and almond crossants, jammies most of the day, doors open to allow the beautiful sunshine in, and snuggling with dad.  Such a perfect day for conference!

I always feel so uplifted, optimistic, and content in my role and where I am in my life.  I know I can always do better, as we all can.  I also love chuckling at these old men who are wise, witty, and wonderful.

Looking down on...whatever this is

32 weeks.  Where is the time going?  8 weeks left until this boy (who has yet to be named) joins our family.  This is a snapshot of me looking down.  Notice the feet are gone.  They are swollen, but they are there!  Swollen feet mean that time is getting closer, and I am so grateful to be bringing another life into our family.  My thoughts of late:

It's 3am and this baby is moving.  How lucky I am to feel him move and know he is in there!

My feel and ankles are swollen and look ugly.  Only a few weeks left!

Some nights, my sciatica is so bad, I can hardly walk.  Good thing my kids are in bed by 7pm and I don't really need to get up and walk.  My husband is doing the dishes and cleaning the kitchen - I'm a lucky woman.

It's 7:30 am and I have to rip myself out of bed to get Sariah to school and get my day going.  Oh how I love my nice, comfortable bed!

He will be here before I know it.  My children are going to love him, snuggle him, and want to be so helpful.  They already are, and they already do.

Moms are so lucky, aren't they?
