In need of a baby fix

Stella has been sick the last couple of days and one perk is that she has been extremely lovey-dovey with her Mama.  My not so little 21 month old has been miss independent since she arrived.  It is rare that she wants to cuddle and nestle in with me as of late.  But the other night, she feel asleep on my chest and I relished every minute.  I tried to consciously take it all in because I know these moments are few and far between.  Although we are lucky to have two children that both sleep through the night now, I still find myself missing those middle of the night moments with a little one nestled in my neck rocking her back to sleep.  And I am sure my husband misses those moments too, deep down inside, he just doesn't know it yet...

So, now I am eagerly waiting a phone call from my oldest and closest friend, Emily.  She is pregnant with her first child and is now 3 days past her due date.  I can't wait to meet this little man.  I can't wait to hold him.  I definitely have baby envy.  But I am over the moon excited for her!

It's been awile..

So, now that I am disconnected from Facebook I figured I would try to blog again.  So here it goes..
I thought I would post some funny things heard around our house..

The tattle tale'ing begins..
Missy: "Mom, come here! look!"
Me: "Oh no, who threw all these diapers all over the place?!?"
Missy: (pointing to Stella who is across the room) "that girl right there!!!"

and another one..
Missy: (in her whiny voice) "Oh mom! you forgot my hat in the car."
Me: "Well, it is YOUR hat, didn't YOU forget it?"
Missy: "Mom, you were suppose to remember."
Me: "I have so much to remember, why do I have to remember EVERYTHING?"
Missy: "Because that is your job."

hahaha, enough said.

My brother Jimmy and his fiancĂ©e Lauren had an engagement party over the weekend.  We arrive late as usual and upon entering Missy says to me, "Mom, where is Jesus?  Is Jesus going to be at this party?"  I was so taken back I didn't know what to say.  Part of me was happy that Jesus is now a daily discussion, but another part of me wasn't sure how to answer her in front of a tent full of people.  I ended up explaining that He is here but we just can't see Him.  At least for now, that explanation was sufficient.  I am currently trying to read and learn how to explain Jesus to an inquisitive toddler.

and some recent pics...


On the move as usual
