“Of course Jordan”- me
She can’t remember how to pronounce North Carolina, and I can stomach the thought of correcting her.
“What I did?”, “what you did?”
One day she will learn grammar. I’ll be sad, and miss these little toddler mistakes.
My sweet older girls love art. They can tear through art supplies like a tornado but for hours! Almost every art session produces gifts for someone. Usually mommy or abba. Latley mommy has been the mickey recipient of these ‘notes’. The art is usually something quick, but it melts my heart every time that they thought of me and wanted to create a little gift with an element of suprise. They come folded or rolled in every which way and the tape job alone is often a work of art in its self. Sometimes I’m not sure if I am even suppose to open them. But when I do and find a hand tracing with a smiley face I’m always glad I did. I am so lucky to be there mom.
This time around I just don’t have the time to write cute little posts about daily doings of Noa’s fun little baby life. I use to have this great job where I could find time to do just about anything, including writing blog post apparently interesting enough to keep dozens of people interested in reading about two tiny humans. I don’t know if it is because being a “stay at home mom” is extremely time consuming, or if three year olds are extremely time consuming or if three kids is extremely time consuming. People just keep telling me my hands must be full, most of whom have kids that are older than mine. So why don’t these women tell me their big secret to getting through this time. if you have a secret, by all mean, leave it in the comments. If not, please enjoy this rare post of my sweet busy children.
I wish I could make time stand still.
I wish I could fast forward some days.
I wish I knew if what I am doing now is really helping or not.
I wish I enjoyed my me time.
None of this is easy, every moment is such a blessing.
Kids are so much fun.
I wish they would go to sleep.
Your sisters love you so much, thier faces light up every morning when they see you, as does yours. Jordan will climb into your crib to play if you both wake up too early giving me a few more minutes to sleep. And Talia has become my safety officer by making sure all the doors are shut so you don’t get into trouble in the rooms. Especially the bathroom. It’s your new favorite place, seeing what’s in the trash or playing in the water in the toilet. When you threw your pacifier in the toilet Talia lovingly fished it out (gross). Yes, you still use your pacifier. For sleeping always and many times during the day.
I am sorry that I didn’t blog everyday for you. Life got busy this year, being a home mom doesn’t have the down time for blogging like one might think. But while I didn’t get to write about every moment, I got to be there. I have lots of pictures to help remember so if you ever want to know the story behind a picture, just ask. I love you baby girl.
