My boy is the best

Ryan is the most hilarious 3 year old that I have ever had the opportunity to play with daily. He says some of the funniest things possible. The other day he told me , "Mommy, you are having a bad hair day". In my defense it was 7 a.m. when he said this. He loves to run around the house in his undies and shoot (spit on) everything in sight. Everyone says that Ryan is going to get forgotten in this house full of girls, but how could he be overlooked. Isn't he just the cutest boy you have ever seen?

My heart has been so heavy for MckMama. I read he blog daily and feel as though I know her and her kids. She gave birth to Stellan on the day that I went into the hospital while pregnant with Alexis. During my stay in the hospital she gave me inspiration and also knowing another person who was trapped in the hospital helped me to not go too crazy during my stay. I keep asking Dave all these medical qustions and I think he has about had it with all of my questions but by the answers I keep getting from him, Stellans heart shouldn't be able to handle all of the stress it is under. In church this morning we sand a song and the verse said " you formed my heart before I was born" and Stellan came to my mind immediately. God knew Stellan from the moment he was formed and he still knows the plans he has for him.
I was so challenged today to be a "Pointer" to Christ through my life. Let me preface this by saying that I HAVE NOT BEEN A GOOD ONE, but I want to be. I really struggled with the choice to change churches. I need to grow in my faith and be challenged and I feel that is what I am getting at Woodland. I walked in to get Ashley from kids church today and they were singing Big House. She was in the front row, doing the motions, praising God and my heart soared and I knew that I had made the right decision for our family. Ryan is almost completely potty trained. Today was our first day going to church with no diaper on. I was so nervous to leave him without one but I realised I was going to have to do it someday, so why not today. Ms. Vicki said that he sat on the potty 4 times in 20 minutes, but he was dry when I picked him up and in the same clothes so I see this as major progress.
This week is Dave's final week of Lieutenant classes, I am so proud of him and also happy for me to finally have my husband home for more that 2 days in a month. Next month is a little crazy too but what else can i expect.

Rice Cereal anyone?

Mixin it UP!



Yummy, all done!

4 months already

Time, needs to stop! I look at my kids and my husband and think- where does the time go. Ashley is almost done with kindergarten, Ryan will be going to preschool in the fall, and Lexi is 4 MONTHS OLD!!! I think of all the things that we haven't gotten around to doing and it makes me sad. I know that kids grow up but does it have to be so fast. It seems like I can't keep up sometimes. Here are the latest pics...more to come soon.

Ashley 5 1/2

Ryan 3
