Sweet Blessings and a Promise (to myself)

I was looking back at this little notebook I had been keeping for Sophie with all the little things she's doing and I got so upset when I realized I had just stopped writting in it around 12 months! There are so many things I know I wanted to remember between then and now. I thought surely I could pull some things off my blog, but I just haven't been good at blogging either! I have been racking my brain trying to remember as many things as I can, but it made me realize how good blogging is just for my own sake. So, I have promised myself that I am going to be more faithful at blogging so that I can hang on to each of those special little memories.

So, here is the first post in keeping my promise to myself:

3-1-10 Big and Little Sister(BW(

My how the Lord has blessed us! We love having two sweet little girls. It's been a little crazy with having the stomach flu and other illnesses, no sleep, plus just the adjustment of having a new little one, but we are still loving being a family of four.

Miss Maggie is not the best sleeper, but neither was her big sister. Sophie is a fantastic sleeper now. She cracks me up at how much she loves to go to bed. I'm sure it helps that she and her Daddy have a fun bedtime routine that she loves so much.


This little porkchop has more than surpassed her birthweight and at 2 weeks was already at 7lbs 10oz. I can guarantee you that she weighs more than that now at 3 weeks. She is already starting to look so big to me! Today she was trying to coo at us. I love those little new baby coos!


I can't wait to see what kind of personality this little one will have. Will she be serious like Josh thought in the beginning or will she follow in her sister's footsteps and be a goofball?


Sophie girl is adjusting pretty good. She loves "her baby" and always wants to go see where "her Maggie" is. She loves kissing on her and really wants to poke her eyes... yep, gotta keep an eye on her! She loves to help me throw away diapers and hand me pacis. Yes, as you can see, Sophie still has a paci too. Judge me if you want, but she likes it so much that I hate to take it away! She only gets it at bedtime, but today we are having a sick day so we're breaking the rules a little. When she woke up this morning, I asked her (in my sad voice) if she was doing okay. She just looked at me and matter-of-factly said "I'm find. Don't worry, Mommy." Like she was some kind of grown up! Love that girl!

3-1-10 I want to go to the pool

She likes to put the boppy pillow around her waist and say "I wanna go to the pool!"


This morning she put her pants on all by herself and started jumping up and down screaming "I did it! I did it!" Very proud moment in a two year olds life.

Love this life that I have been blessed with! Somedays I have to remind myself of that when I am so sleepy and just want a shower... :)

I realized recently that I've stopped jotting down updates and achievements in my kids' lives too. So sad. Maybe we could set one day aside a month to write stuff down and hold each other accountable?

I know what you mean about keeping track of the memories. That's why I keep (sometimes) blogging and Andy won't let me quit.
Such a fun post and sweet girlies! Those days are so full of challenges but little joys that keep you going and make your heart swell.

I'm so glad that you are going to start blogging again! I just finished Chloe's first year photo book, and it was so nice to be able to go back and look at little things I had written about her. Makes me want to keep going with the ole' blog.
Thanks for your prayers!
