Is it really October and the last time I posted was New Year’s Eve? Guess I’ve been busy with two active little boys. 🙂 For those you have been following this journal and wondering where are they now? I thought I would give you an update.
My HELLP free baby Asher is now 13 months! Every day he is looking more like little boy and less like a baby. We are having a big garage sale this weekend and getting rid of most of the baby stuff. This is breaking my heart but my body is definitely glad that we are done with the “having babies” stage of life. Asher is taking a few independent steps, says about 6 words but understands so much more, and is the happiest baby. I don’t know how he can be so happy when he is such a bad sleeper but I love his smiles and laughter!
My HELLP baby Levi is 3 years old!! Has it really been 3 years? You would never guess that he was a 3lb 2oz baby. He is tall for his age and everyone thinks that he is older than 3. His behavior tells you otherwise. 🙂 We are potty training which is NOT fun. I’m hoping that Asher is watching and learning so that he won’t be as difficult. I just keep reminding myself that this too is just another season in life. Levi loves to ride his tricycle and play outside. But Disney Cars is his absolute favorite thing ever!
It looks like Matt and I will be facing some new challenges as possible layoffs are threatening his employment. One of the GREAT things about God is that when we heard the news, we both experienced an amazing peace about it. We have faced many trials in our 7 years of marriage and God has always proven Himself faithful. Why should we doubt it now? It just makes me appreciate even more all that He has given us.
“So don’t worry about these things, saying, ‘What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?’ These things dominate the thoughts of unbelievers, but your heavenly Father already knows all your needs. Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.” Matthew 6:31-33
That’s the update. Happy Fall to you all!
