Almost 18 months...

He's what?? Seriously? How did THAT happen??

I am having a hard time letting this little boy grow up. He is my baby Why is he crying?

I wouldn't let him touch the camera! Excuse the blurriness, but it is one of my favourites.

(holding a camera still while holding a squirming kid, not so easy!)
Today, was sunny and warm, I had all the windows open and have been cleaning like crazy (minus two kids again today, they are sick).

The house has not been this clean since just before Owen was born (and no, I am NOT pregnant) I blame the cleaning and organizing on the fact that the weather suddenly feels like it is spring again.

I was a grouch this morning. In a bad mood and frustrated but that quickly changed, Alexandra, Owen and I had monster chases and tickle fights in the living room. It's amazing how quickly that chases the blahs away!

We wrapped presents (it's Troy's birthday tomorrow) and made cards and talked with Grandma on the phone.

Today I am learning to let go of the selfishness and to live in Him, as He wants me to. Full of gentleness and patience and resting in His joy.

And I am.

The things that God has been working on in my heart and life are incredible. It has been a looooong time since I have been in this place and I am so thankful for His faithfulness and the Truth He continues to teach me.

"If you seek Me, you will find Me if you search for me with all your heart." (Jeremiah something!) And I have been and you know what? I'm finding Him.

More and more and more.

I love your pictures! And wow, he sure is getting a much more grown up look about him these days!

Your words are very encouraging. I love how settled you are and how you are seeking after God with such enthusiasm.

I know how much I need to do that. Lately I have felt like I have been in such a "fog" - lack of sleep, nursing all the time, etc

Trying to reach through the fog and get into the Word...
