Jesse turned 9 months old yesterday.
I can't even begin to tell you what a blur this has all been.
One of the senior girls from my Sunday School class took these pics for our Christmas card.
She did such an awesome job. On the back was also Jesse's birth announcement...because that never happened.
Hello friends and family!
We are announcing that we had a baby in April
and that we (I) are procrastinators!
I think I say it every month, but Jesse is a super social baby. He LOVES attention and to flirt and interact with everyone! I can't wait to see how his personality develops.
I'm a little jealous of his and Katie's lashes. No fair.
He is crawling now and into everything.
It's hard with baby #2 because you have to watch out for barbie shoes and princess accessories from kid #1 that can easily block a windpipe if swallowed!
God made him cute on purpose, because he doesn't sleep through the night.
It's his saving grace.
This old mommy is TIRED!
Marcus gave me the best gift ever on Friday.
A night at a hotel BY MYSELF!
It was awesome. I could cry right now thinking about it.
I LOVE my kids. I have the most helpful husband and family ever. I have super sweet friends, a warm cozy house, plenty of food to eat, reliable cars, working appliances, and MORE.
Even with all of that, life is a struggle some days.
It just is.
I do not function well with little sleep and a giant "to do" list. I can't imagine how I would do if my circumstances were not as ideal as they are!
I just wanted to share that in case I ever gave off a "rainbows and unicorns" vibe.
To you, other tired and overwhelmed girls, you are not alone!
I am thankful for God's grace and love.
He loves me even though I am domestically challenged and sometimes cranky.
And His love would not increase if my bed was made everyday.
