Aubi is Five

Dear Aubi, Today you are five. Five years ago, early in the morning, I held your tiny body in my arms for the first time. For five full years you have been making us smile, laugh, and so filled with joy! My prayer for you is that I show you patience and grace as The Lord has shown me patience and grace. I pray that I teach you the ways of The Lord and that your life will be a testament to His love and mercy. I pray that in everything that you do, you will glorify Him. If you follow The Lord and make Him Lord of your life, then all my prayers will have been answered. The Lord has given you many gifts and skills, Aubi Roo. You are so intelligent and advanced for your age. We’ve been working through a kindergarten math book and you are just breezing through it like its nothing. You are bold, determined, and spunky. You can be quite headstrong at times, but I know that these characteristics …

Ollie Turns Nine Months

I’m running very behind on writing this blog post. Ollie turned nine months on March 22nd and its almost time to write the blog about him turning ten months. I actually wrote this a couple weeks ago but never got around to posting it to my blog. Most days I’m running on empty just trying to get everything done and accomplished for the day. I don’t know how you other moms take pictures with your kids wearing the month stickers. Ollie would rather eat his. Maybe you’re all just sneakier than I am. I tried sneaking it on his head like last month but he’s caught onto my tricks. Nope. That sticker lasted less than a second before it was a crumpled mess. I did finally figure out that putting him in his crib is the perfect way to trap him for pictures. Nine month old Ollie has two teeth on the bottom, is very mobile, can climb, walk around furniture, babble, laugh, and loves to play with his siblings. He is still very adventurous …

Elli Turns Seven

My Elli turned seven this past Saturday and as I do every birthday I wrote her a letter and I’m sharing it here. There’s also pictures of her birthday weekend and some of her birthday photo shoot we did at the end so don’t miss those! Dear Elli, We have been celebrating your seventh birthday this weekend. Seven years ago you made me a mommy for the very first time. You were such a tiny little thing at 6 lbs 7 oz. I remember seeing and holding you for the first time and thinking you were the most beautiful person I’d ever met. Seven years later and you are even more beautiful today. I remember seeing the look on your daddy’s face when he looked at you. That first look of love is something I will never forget. You changed our lives forever. I don’t say this lightly, Elli Bean, but you are so amazing. You are so many things that I wish I could be. You are considerate, compassionate, kind, the best big sister, …
