Horrible picture, I know, but its the first one to capture the good news. Drew and George are walking. Not all day but they can and do often. Its been going on for about a week and half now. Drew was about 3 days ahead of George but thats how they do it. Once one has hit a milestone, it is always a matter of a few days until the other is right on track with them. So...its happened....my boys are like toddlers. Its ridiculously adorable to watch such tiny humans making their way around like little drunk sailors. There are plenty of things that are not so desirable with this new found ability but I am just too excited about all the goodness to even delve into any of it. Plus sometimes the naughty stuff is just the cutest to witness!
How I adore this age. The uneven toothy grins,their haphazard way of getting one place to the other and the beginning of initiated affection. The open mouth kisses are so precious. Drool and boogers have never been so welcomed as they are here today. Come and give your Mommy some love!
We really are having the absolute time of our lives. Could not be happier. I don't think its humanly possible to get life much better than it is today. Has me thinking of how blessed this family is....it is NOT unnoticed. Maybe not in riches, but the love it overflows.
If I had only known 5 years ago that my life would be the way it is, I would have relaxed a bit more. I guess I had to really see it to believe it. God provided a way for me to turn my entire life around. He has been so faithful. That doesn't go to say that every prayer has been answered ( or at least not the answer I wanted). There have been moments of agony in loss and such where I didn't understand and still don't understand the 'answer', but I trust that it is His and I say lets keep on rolling. I don't feel worthy to have this amount of joy in my heart, but He thinks I am. Thank you God for the little things. The kisses, the full tummies, the sunrise everyday...I serve an awesome God.
Do not save riches for yourselves here on earth, where moths and rust destroy, and robbers break in and steal. Instead, save riches for yourselves in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and robbers cannot break in and steal. For your heart will always be where your riches are.
