1st Gardening post!

This Spring, one of the things I want to do is more…wait for it…gardening!

(This is a test post, by the way, trying to get categories set up)


Miss P had an e…


Miss P had an eye exam today and we could use your prayers. It seems as though there is a possible issue with the vein development of her left eye that could require surgery. We are going back for a follow up in two weeks. Please keep her in your prayers. I know it isn’t the end of the world but the though of eye surgery is really scary. 

More to come. 

Super S and Miss P

I thought I would share my favorite picture today because they say a picture is worth a thousand words. I thought it would be fun to paint the scene surrounding this shot.

Miss P had just gotten a bath. A deep clean was needed after a particularly messy diaper situation. Super S was hovering as he is apt to do. He likes to get me clean clothes, diapers and then he talks to her as we perform the normal taking care of baby chores. And it is so sweet because Miss P turns her head to put her cheek on his whenever she can, to which he exclaims, “She is so cute, Mommy.” It was during this domestic scene that I made my husband snap this shot.

Where is Super-I? Playing in the potty. I had to rescue three matchbox cars and a Mr. Potato head mouth  after I had changed her but that is another story for another blog post. 

It is also a big blogging step because for the first time on my blog, outside of the womb….Miss P. 


That is the word that describes my heart right now. I love this little girl so much and I feel so blessed to have her in my life. She is sweet and spunky and smart as a whip. Whenever I look at her it feels like I feel the entire journey I took to get her just manifests in my arms and my heart is just full to the brim.

It is a little tricky to try to balance all three kids with grace and poise. I’m still working on that. I have a feeling it may be a life long project. I am still working to create that new routine, the one that incorporates a newborn’s non-schedule with two toddler’s needs of a rigid schedule. She is in quarantine right now so I have to limit who can see her, we cannot go out at all and everyone is probably beyond annoyed at my reminders to wash hands and use the hand sanitizer. I know all this stuff will work itself out. I’m trying to focus on the important things, these moments that we will never get back. The every day simple interactions that I have the opportunity to create memories for my children for the rest of their lives. And every second that I get to hold my sweet little girl in my arms and just marvel at her every detail. These are the important things.

That is where I am this Wednesday night. I can’t wait to see what tomorrow holds!

Fun Crazy Times

I feel like now the fun begins! The boys love their sister and Super S (our three year old) is always saying, she is home. She is so cute. I-man wants to give her kisses all of the time.

She had her first doctor’s visit yesterday and she is doing beautifully. Three pounds eight ounces fifteen inches long.

As far as her personality, she loves to be held and to snuggle. She also makes these adorable little noises all day long and I like to think she is just letting us know she is happy to be home.

So for now, I am trying not to look into the long road ahead of doctors appointments, developmental checks and the like and I am just going to enjoy her, every snuggle, every coo, every smile. It has been a long road to get to where we are and the best is yet to come!
