Dear friends and family,
It has been a while since I've blogged. Again. I'm so bad at keeping this up, aren't I? What have you all been up to?
My days are full of drool and diapers and endless questions. I wouldn't have it any other way! :) I absolutely adore being a mom. I would be thrilled to have 20 children and 400 grandchildren if such was possible!
My oldest, Chicklet, is in 1st grade and loving it! She's sweet and smart. In her spare time she loves making presents for her siblings and Daddy and I.
My son is finally 4. I say finally because... well... if you've ever had a 3 year old then you know. ;) They warn you about age 2 but trust me, 2 has nothing on 3. Then comes 4 and you finally start seeing fruit from the last 2 years of emotionally agonizing over this child every minute of every day! 4 is a wonderful age. Thank God for age 4! :)
Then comes Weetsie. Her nickname came from calling her "sweetie-weetie" as a baby and then "sweetsie" and finally just "weetsie" and somehow she's now 2 1/4 and Weetsie still sticks. I have been trying to remind myself to start calling her by her real name more often though because the poor child actually thinks her given name is Weet. Hehe... She's mischievous and opinionated and cuddly as can be! Tonight she had a toy alligator and I found this out when I was answering an email and suddenly there's a mouth full of plastic teeth about an inch from my right eyeball, and a tiny voice by my right elbow giggled, "LOOK Mama! Itsa crocodile!" Why yes, dear, I see. How can I not as it's about to poke out my eye with it's plastic chompers? Lol!
And speaking of chompers, dear sweet baby Honeypie is getting 4 at once! But as always she's in good humor and sweet as can be. She's the most relaxed and happy baby I've had. Making up for her siblings giving me fits in their infancy! I will say I've never had a baby sick so much though. None of my others got sick as nurselings.
Sweet Honeypie is loved by everyone and probably a bit spoiled. :) She'll be a year old in a few weeks. I can't believe time has flown so fast!
And it's almost Christmas. Wow! My favorite time of year! I've been crafting away like crazy! How about you?
And now it's time for Honeypie to go to bed and me and the world's most wonderful husband to watch a movie together while I do more of said crafting.
God bless you all with a wonderful December!
