Coming back

I've tried to sit down and blog for several days now, but something always seems to come up. Literally. Madelyn is constantly climbing up on my lap whenever I'm at the computer.  She has a toddler's sixth sense about when Mom needs some alone time needs the companionship of a two-year-old.  But right now, she and Sophia are napping, Lila and Ezra are saving the world one playdo creation at a time and I'm seizing the day while I can.

I'd be lying if I said that finding balance has been easy with four kids under five.  {Well, officially 4 kids age 5 and under, since Lila just had a birthday.}  At first I tried to take things one day at a time, but I found that even day by day was too much for me.  I'm learning to take things one minute at a time.  Some minutes are hard and I just have to pull a "Frozen" and let it go and some minutes are pure bliss and I tuck them away in my memory.  Some moments we are all happy and giggling, the next minute everyone could be crying.  We're like a giant emotional roller coaster of babies, toddlers, and children, so you just never know what you're gonna get around here.  :)

And I'm ok with that.  Some nights I go to bed pleasantly exhausted, some nights I go to be miserably exhausted and some nights I'm just too tired to categorize my exhaustion.  But every night I'm grateful for my life.  Because I am continually learning that this is the path God wants me on.  He knows exactly what I need to make me a little bit softer so that I can become exactly what He needs me to be.

But I ramble.  Forgive me for that, it's so blasted nice to record my thoughts again.  Just for myself, I don't even care if you're reading them or not.

Really though the point of this post was to brag about our little Sophia Hope.  She is perfection in baby form.

Such a special little person and I love that we get to have her in our home.


My sister-in-law rocked some newborn shots of her and I'm so thankful because she's already changed so much and my camera skills are sadly lacking.  :)

I know I sound like an old lady when I say this but I treasure all of my children's newborn photoshoots.  They just make you look back and melt for those sweet little bundles of baby goodness.  Ok, I'll stop my proud momminess for a minute.

Plus, I'm only showing you a handful of pictures, so you won't feel completely bombarded.

And now I'm off to do whatever the next moment brings!
