Today's theme: Babies!

I feel like everywhere I turn these days, I am surrounded by new babies, pregnancy announcements, and of course...the cutest baby evah. But more on her later.

A few things:

1. I debated online today with a girl who is adamant about how she will never have children. How sad for her. Having children is the most rewarding experience I have ever had, and I'm only five years into this adventure. I can only imagine what it will be like as time goes on, my babies get bigger, and the rewards start to become even greater. Of course, parenting isn't the easiest thing I've ever taken on, but who cares? The "bad" times are far outweighed by all the good.

Thank God for my kids.

I feel like I should be one of those nerdy moms who gets a mini van and then puts a bumper sticker on the back that says that exact thing: Thank God for my kids. 

2. My sister is pregnant. ::confetti:

She was trying to be all secretive and sly about it, but if you know my sister...you know this isn't happening. Lol. Within a couple of days, it was all over social media and she was forced to announce--most likely--a good 4-6 weeks before she intended to. I could not be HAPPIER for her. Or for me. After all, I get to add a niece or nephew to the list!

Please pray for her, by the way. A successful pregnancy and healthy baby are obviously what we are all hoping for.

3. I am fearful for what Charlotte is going to be like as she gets older. The kid is 7 months old (how is that even possible!?) and she is already suuuuuper dramatic.

For instance, today. We were playing on the floor, in front of the mirror, and I was being very careful to watch that she didn't fall forward and bonk her head too hard--she isn't exactly stable when sitting up. Well, despite my efforts, she fell over. She fell to the side and just barely--BARELY--hit her head as she went down. OMG, the girl screamed for 20 minutes.

At that age, Thad would've probably looked at me and laughed. They are so, so different.

But she's pretty damn cute. SO CUTE. I could seriously stare at her all day.

And sometimes I do.

Sometimes I sneak into her room at night to tuck her in, and just lean on her crib and watch her sleep. She is the most beautiful little girl I have ever laid my eyes on. I just love her so, so much.
