Baby dedication 

My middle and baby were dedicated today at church. It means so much to me that we our teaching our kids early about the lord. Harper can sing many bible songs and Averi tries. Haha I hope they always turn to the lord for everything! Is he our provider
“Train up a child in the way they should go, and when they are old, they will not turn from it” 

What a difference a year makes

A year ago today, we found out we were pregnant with our surprise baby. I remember like it was yesterday

1/20/2016 I just got off work and was heading to my favorite place, Target! While I was there I bought a pregnancy test. Earlier in the day, I looked at the calendar and saw I was a few days late. Nothing unusual for me, but decided to buy one anyways. I got home and did a few things around the house and then decided to test. I just knew it would be negative so I was not in any hurry. I finally took it and right when I peed on the stick, I saw those 2 pink lines. I GASPED!!! How can this be??? Averi is only 4 months old. I called my best friend and cried and cried. She finally calmed me down. After I got off the phone, i paced the floor. How are we going to afford another one? How can I take care of 3 kids? What are we going to do?

Brian came home at 6:30pm and I had the test with a note on the counter so he would see it right away. I was in the other room and he walked in there with a HUGE smile and said “Are you serious?” He was so happy which made me cry again.

The next 9 months were the worst months of my life. Taking care of a 2 year old and a baby plus being pregnant was hard. My pregnancy was emotionally draining and I was exhausted. This pregnancy was the hardest.

9/8/16 I went into labor at 37 weeks. Right when I saw her face, those worries just disappeared. I am so glad God blessed us with one more. She has been the biggest blessing to our family. She makes everyone happy and not a day goes by that I don’t thank God for her. It is hard having them so close in age, but I would do it again and again! I am so happy with my family. We are DONE now. I love my 3 girls

Oh memories

Don’t you just love timehop? You totally forget what you post on that day years ago. Some memories make me sad, some make me happy, and some maybe think OMG was that my baby???!?? Today was that moment. My oldest is now 3 and is a walking talking girlie girl. She has such a big heart and is so caring. She is our mama bear and takes care of all of us. Here is a picture of here 3 years ago today. When she was the only girl and she was her mommys world. She is still my world but she shares it with 2 others. I miss that chunky baby. They grow up so fast
