Taylor: Hey Luke! Look! I have a baby in my belly!
Luke: No you don't, that's your breakfast. :)


Taylor: {holding her shirt up} Mommy, I have two babies in my belly at the same time. One is named Mary and the other Gabriel.
Luke: No you don't.
Taylor: Actually I have FIVE babies in my belly. Mary, Gabriel, Sophie, Luke and Mommy.
Luke: You're crazy.


Every morning Luke offers me his lambies to cuddle with, this morning he wanted to cuddle too...he's never quiet in the AM but this morning as Taylor was sleeping in, he cuddled with me and sang "Bless the Lord O my Soul" softly. Can you get a better start to the day?


As I was drying my hair this morning the kids were pretending their closet was the stable and Taylor's baby was Jesus. They had him on a pillow and wrapped in blankets and had all their stuffed animals around baby Jesus. Taylor was Mary and Luke was Joseph. Taylor: Mommy LOOK! Baby Jesus....isn't this EXCITING!!! I'm soooo excited! Luke: Umm Mary...baby Jesus is hungry, you should feed him some hot cereal and milk. Mary: Oh okay. {feeds him and lays him back down} Luke: Baby Jesus is crying. Me: You better pick him up Joseph. Luke: It's okay baby. {rocking him and laying him down} Taylor: EWW baby Jesus is stinky! Joseph, you better change him, he pooped. Luke: nut uh. That's gross.


Taylor: Mom! Did you hear the baby in my belly growling? :)


The kids seriously NEVER get sick of watching our wedding video. They still ask to watch it and the reception often. Taylor gets just as excited every time I walk down the isle. "That's MY Mommy!" And Luke gets just as excited every time to see Danny and Lorrie sing. :)


Highlight of my day: Emerson dancing while Luke and Taylor sang Jesus Loves Me to him. ♥


‎{First thing this morning.} Taylor: I LOVE you Mommy! {hugs and kisses} Today I'm gonna obey and listen to you and make Jesus soooo happy! :) {shouldn't we all start out with that attitude?}


Luke: Mom, why did God make Goliath since he's so mean? {Ever since we've been talking about our choice to obey or not...be nice or not, etc.}


Me: What do you think we should give Jesus for his birthday? What do you think he'd like? Luke: I can draw him a picture of children! :) Taylor: Prolly for us to be nice to each other and share and obey and stuff.


Taylor: My friends and I were playing and we were playing with this other friend and you ARE NOT GONNA BELIEVE IT MOM! We didn't realize BUT GUESS WHAT? HE WAS JESUS! We didn't realize he was Jesus but he was! Me: Really? Taylor: Yup and we played with him and it was SOOO much fun.


‎{bathtime} Me: What is that in the water? Luke: I didn't poop Mom! Must be Taylor. Taylor: I DID NOT! Me: What is it? Taylor: Umm...Jesus pooped in there, it splashed down from heaven. He had to go really bad!

Big News!

Looks like I'll get to experience what it's like to carry one baby at a time. :) God is good. :)

Nick and I were completely shocked by the news of baby #3, but God wasn't. Nick and I didn't think it was possible, but with God all things are possible.

Psalm 139:13-16
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body
and knit me together in my mother’s womb.
Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.
You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion,
as I was woven together in the dark of the womb.
You saw me before I was born.
Every day of my life was recorded in your book.
Every moment was laid out
before a single day had passed.

Matthew 19:26
Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.”
