I want to be in all senses of the words, All. Things. Mama.
As far back as I can remember I've wanted to be a mom, not just any mom, but the mom that stays home with her kids full time. The mom who loves even when she is not loved back, who can't breathe without thinking of her kids first. The mom who loves teaching, playing, cooking, baking, laughing, and kissing owies. The mom who is ALL THINGS MAMA. My husband and I scrimp so that dream can be fulfilled. Being a mom is not part time for me. It is something that has captured my heart. All of the going ons of my life start with thoughts of my kids. My kids consume my love and my life and I allow it because, with God's help they are the essence of what makes me a mother. This is me...

3 under 3...

In a week I'll be a mom of 3..all under the age of 3. I'm ready, I think.  Another baby to love, play with, teach,  pray for, take pictures of, kiss, worry about, check on in the middle of the night and lose sleep over.

Easton and Mel are growing so fast and getting so big, yet I still peek in their rooms if I wake up in the middle of the night, just to make sure they're sleeping cozily.  I've heard from other moms that this never stops. You'll forever be checking on your kids, no matter how big they get.  I can see that.

Melanie and I went shopping alone yesterday.  She made sure to bring her purse.  "Just girls" she said as we pulled out of the drive, "Easton's not a girl so he stays with daddy."  I love our trips together, just us girls.

While we were out we bought Easton some big boy undies.  She was so excited when we got home that she kept telling Darrell that Easton was awake and not napping anymore.  "Daddy, I hear Easton talking."  She said this at least 3 or 4 times before it was actually true.  She wanted to give him his new underwear so bad!  I'm pretty sure she was more excited about his new underwear than he was, although he thought they were "cool".

It's weird to think that pretty soon I'll be typing up little stories about another little girl.  A baby girl named Skyelynn Faith.  What will she be like?  Who will she look like?  All these questions and continuous prayers every night that she makes a safe arrival.  I can't wait!
