We went to the mall playground Friday. And even though Isaac isn't crawling yet I took some posed pictures of him too, because it won't be long before I may not be able to catch him. After they played a while I went around and got individual pictures of all of them. I just love how unique and special each of them are, and I love that Brian and I made them! Today I am counting my blessings despite the 5 times Isaac woke up last night for no apparent reason because he is alive and he is my sweet son who's smile alone is worth all the lost sleep and then some. Today I am counting my blessings despite the girls both breaking down into tears many (MANY) times today due to two days of missed naps because they are alive and their hugs and kisses help me get through the tough days. Today I am counting my blessings despite my husband being a million miles away because he is alive and his faithfulness, devotion, and love are more than I could ever deserve. So today as I am posting simple playground pictures I am counting my blessings. 1, 2, 3, 4...
Here's Genna doing a little silly face action!

Isaac's in a tunnel posing in an Army crawl!
Isaac's in front of a tree! (I can't believe he's almost 6 months old!)
My husband and I were sitting in church before Mass shortly after we were confirmed into the Catholic Church. Both of our gazes drifted to a pew close by where a family filled up the whole pew. Granted it was one of the shorter pews, not a full length one. I can't remember who said it to whom, but one of us said, "I hope we fill up a pew with our family one day." We agreed it would be wonderful. And so that is what we're hoping for...a pew all our own.
People think they have to find their soulmate to have a good marriage. You get married, and after 20 years of loving, bearing and raising children, meeting challenges- then you'll have "created" your soulmate. -Diane Sollee
