I think pregnancy is starting to get to me. I've been feeling really good, just tired and starting to get a little bit uncomfortable at night. I take naps during Silas' naptime and the boys' quiet time most days and still fall asleep on the couch during Eric and my nightly netflix watching.
A few days ago we watchedYoung @ Heart and totally loved it. It's a documentary about a band/choir with the average age of 80. They sing cover songs from all kinds of modern bands, everything from the Beatles to Outkast. It was so sweet and hilarious!
Like every other mom, I'm constantly playing catch up on the never-ending chores of laundry, cleaning, cooking, etc.. So, that and homeschool have been occupying my time.
I can't believe our new baby will be here in 3 months! It's so crazy for me to hear of people due in May or June. It means that my due date is that much closer. I know the next 3 months will fly by.
Today Samuel is wearing a shirt that says, "Mommy is my Valentine." It's so fitting for him (even in September). He's totally my little cuddle bug, love bug. He's always wanting to sit on my lap and give hugs and kisses. The other day I was taking a rest on the couch and he came and laid down next to me. I opened my eyes to his eyes right in front of mine. He had such a serious look on his face, gazing in to my eyes, that I started laughing. In a completely serious voice he said, "What?" I got this glimpse of him as a man with his wife, being so sweet and affectionate.
I've heard people say, "We're not raising kids, we're raising adults." Everything we do as parents is not to get our children not to annoy us today, but to raise them into loving, productive, smart, funny, adults who love God and people. I love seeing them grow into little men.
Well, the boys are patiently waiting on the couch for me to read them Highlights magazine. They've, "been waiting so long," as Judah says.
