Motherhood Reminders

This blog post really spoke to me tonight. Being a Mommy is a lesson in selflessness, and it's not an easy lesson to learn. I have loved being a stay at home mom for the last 6 months, but it has truly been an adjustment. This "job" doesn't end at 5:00 every day. My sweet boys want attention every. single. minute of the day. Some days there's a little one at my feet even while I'm in the shower! I'm still trying to figure out how to get 30 minutes a day to myself just to get some exercise. There are many days where I think "If I could just have a break, have some ME time, I could do it all again tomorrow." Even though the moments of motherhood are truly sweet, there's an inner struggle for balance and personal time that I'm willing to bet most mom's have experienced. I'm too tired to have any grandiose answers right now, but reading this post tonight was like coming up for a breath of air on a day that felt a little more like drowning than swimming.

I'm thankful God's mercies are new every morning. I need His mercy and grace each and every day.

Growing Babies

This pic was taken back in October. They've done a lot of growing in just 4 months!

David loves to try and grab the spoon while I'm feeding him. This usually ends up in a big mess... :-)


Caleb was supposed to be napping. I walked in and found this scene and a cute little boy who was so happy with himself. Oh goodness.

I love these two little boys like crazy!
