a moment to myself

I actually have quite a few moments to myself but I usually don't do things I should with those quite moments. Most often I watch a T.V show, read something, look at others blogs, and other piddly things.

As a was just putting my beautiful little boy to sleep tonight, I couldn't help but realize that I am completely and blissfully happy with my life as his mother. I love what I do. I love all of it. I'm pretty sure that this is what I was made to do. Of course I believe we are all as daughters of God divinely given the job as Mother but I seem to be meant for this above all else.

I can't believe how tiring it all is. It is HARD work. But I seem to forget all of that before it ever become anything other than a passing thought. His smile, his laugh, his insatiable curiosity is irresistible. I even find myself almost wishing I had more time with Carson. Just him and me. He's my baby and yet I have another one coming in less than two months! aw, how can that be! I've heard of this baby #2 worry. That mothers feel like they might leave the first without all the attention they were used to, and how we can possibly give them everything we gave them when it was just the two of us. Of course as soon as this little girl comes out, it will be as if we were always a family of 4 but for now, it's funny to have these thoughts.

I have come to know more and more each day that the gospel of Jesus Christ is true. Marriage has been a huge guide towards my increased testimony. It's amazing how celestial it really is. And motherhood has been just as influential. Life is not super exciting, and we don't have pictures and great adventure stories to tell, but it's so real. My life is real, and I couldn't be happier about the fact. Nothing fake. My husband is loyal, a good man, and he loves me.

aw, i'm feeling scatter-brained. so many thoughts, such a good day. but i'm tired. till the next moment...

Family is the BEST

We've had so much fun with both sides of our family. I love the move! I love being so close to everyone.
Carson loves his grandparents.

This is why I have the best life ever! This face is absolutely loveable.

One day at my parents...it's amazing what avacado and a 1 1/2 year old can do for each other.

aw....moving, playing, and getting bigger

Well, we've done it. We packed up, cleaned house, and left on a new adventure.
Carson is such a great helper when it comes to cleaning around the house. He begs to be included.

Since we moved in with Grandma and Grandpa Daines for the summer, Carson has found some great new toys! This is carson driving the battery powered Jeep. There is a video at the end. He knows how to press the pedal...steering is a bit of a challenge.

Carson also loves the ducks in their front pond. He likes to quack at them and have them quack back. They just have to stay about 5 ft away. They've bit him a few times while he fed them so he's a bit more cautious.

He's such a big boy...ready for primary in a few weeks! YAY.
My pregnancy is going good. She loves to move around in there. We're excited but she can stay in there for a little longer til we get our place ready and moved into.

A few years too soon. He should wait another 14 1/2 for the license.
