This Boy

Today this boy turns 6.  And I think it's fair to say that life would not be what it is without him.  The day he was born will forever be etched into my heart, and each day is made sweeter because he is here.  

Johnathan, in your six years I have watched you become a good big brother.....twice!  You are fiercely protective of your brother, and y'all are such good buddies.....

And I'm pretty sure you love your baby sister more than any brother has ever loved his sister.  You just adore her, it's so precious.....

You've become quite a learner, and I love seeing your mind work.  You love trying to figure things out and you hold yourself to a high standard...yes, even at your young age you love when you get all your schoolwork done with 100% accuracy.  I think you may have a little bit of your Daddy in you!  ;-)

You also have become such a big helper to me and you really like to cook!  Your favorite meal to make is grilled cheese!  You also enjoy helping me around the house...and even told me the other day that "dusting is fun!".....I'm going to remind you of this when you're older!  ;-)

And even though 6 seems SO big, you still want me to hold you, to snuggle with you before you go to sleep, and sometimes you even sneak into our bed at night....and because 6 seems SO big, and time seems to be flying TOO fast I let you stay..... 

I love you, sweet Johnathan.  There will always be a special place in my heart that is reserved just for you.  

Much love, Mommy

Popping in to Say Hello!

Just thought I'd pop in here since it's been like a MONTH since I last posted.  Yikes! Our life is non-stop with our three lil' munchkins, and I guess I need to be better about documenting it here...although if you follow me on Instagram you have a pretty good idea of what our life is like!  #itsabeautifulmess

Our days are kept busy with the boys' school, looking after Sister's needs and keeping the house relatively under control.  I am really enjoying this "simple" phase of life.  This time where everyone needs me and I can meet those needs fairly easy.  It really is a sweet life, and I enjoy my days with my babies.

We're looking forward to spring around here, and have enjoyed several nice days this week outside. The boys are already talking swimming and water guns and all the fun activities that spring/summer will bring.  And Sister, my she is getting so big...6 months already!  Wow!  She's the light of all of our lives.  The boys continue to adore her which makes my heart swell for so many reasons.

Anyways, that's it for now.  I'll have to hop back on later to update with some pictures.
