One and Four. One and Four. One and Four. May be if I keep saying it, I'll actually believe that I'm old enough to have a one year old and a four year old! And may be if I say it a little more, I'll believe that Noah has been around for a third of my married life. Wow.
Sometimes it feels like it isn't real, you know? Like, I'm on the
outside looking in at my life. I have two beautiful, crazy
children who make me laugh literally every day (they often make me want to cry too, but focusing on the positive here!) and a wonderful husband
who loves me well and takes care of all us. Sometimes it just doesn't seem fair! Praise to God, for his lavish goodness!
This August is a blaring example of blessing . Grams and Pops came to stay for a week to celebrate the kids'
birthdays, and we enjoyed them thoroughly! Nana and Papa also came up
for the big birthday party. It was a fun weekend.
Noah requested "rockets" for his birthday theme, so I
went with it, and I threw in a few stars for London. (My way of course!) We had lots of friends over, had a
taco bar lunch, and Noah had a chocolate cake and London a strawberry
one. I felt like I was able to spend time focusing on the kiddos,
unlike past years where I've been much too worried about the logistics
of the party, so that was good. Mom helped me do a lot of the preparation, and overall it went smoothly. Lots of good friends, grandparents and cake = success!
