The previous post describes how I feel about Blogging right now...I love to get on here and do a few times a week to see what everyone else is posting.........but alas, I've lost that lovinfeelin for blogging. I'll try to reignite my passion.
Once we have some news on moving or jobs I'm sure I'll want to post something. Till then!
Ever feel like you are just kinda awkwardly out of place? That is how I have been feeling lately. Not in a completely bad way persay, but I'm kinda stumped. I haven't been myself...I have kinda felt withdrawn from the things that I LOVE and have brought me so much comfort. Exercise and socializing have almost been a foreign thought as of late...I feel change coming...(i know, duh, Matthew is graduating....) I just keep thinking..Heavenly Father, just help me to be able to hear your voice so that I know what it is that I need to do.
I have watched so many good friends move away...its hard to keep starting over. You build up a friendship, and then it seems like it just slips away with the miles that are between us and them. I don't want it to be like that, but it just kinda happens. I cry when I think about the friends that we have made, the memories that Max has of people, and then the day comes when I ask him if he remembers so and so, and he looks at me confused and says....nope. I mean, these people were around more than family, and all it takes is enough time to pass and he forgets them.
I don't know what life has in store for me and my family. Heck I don't have the slightest clue where I will be in 6 months. I know I am not alone in this quandry. In fact, I know many people that are trying to figure out this same thing. I just really feel uncomfortable not 'knowing'. I'm a planner through and through.
I know that I just need to "Be still and know that He is God"
I don't know why I felt like posting this...but somehow I feel better.
They really do love eachother so much. Max is always asking to hold Sam.
Sam is really excited to play outside, can't you tell
This was a really special day. We blessed Sam in Missoula, Montana at my parents house so that all of our family could be there. It was the last Sunday before Christmas, almost everyone was there, and the lights of the Christmas tree were on. So so so special.
So, I got this idea from Caitlin. I think its genius! So I am going to steal it. I don't think she will mind.......Mostly because I have admitted that she is a genius. That counts for something right? It makes up for my inability to be have my own ideas.....anyway...
April 4, 2009 Today I was sweetly in my best 1950's sitcom mom voice asking Max to put away some toys before he got new ones out. Well, he didn't appreciate my gentle reminders. So he sighed a throaty noisy sigh then said......"Daddy, mommy is driving me nuts!" What could I do? I was in stitches! Yeah, he probably shouldn't say things like that, but he was clearly annoyed, and I think he handled it ok. What would you do if your 3 year old said that?
May 4, 2009 I got home from the gym and Max greeted me at the door and said: "Mommy did you have fun? Did you have fun at, at the gym?" I asked Matthew if he told Max where I was, and he didn't. I guess the little fella is just smarter than I realized. Not that I didn't think he was smart, its just that you never know when they are paying attention to what you are talkin about!
Little big Sam
So, I can't be sarcastic or overly clever with the things that Sam does................yet. April 4, 2009 Today was an exciting day in the life of a 4 month old! He rolled over from his tummy to his back, multiple times. It probably helps that he is pretty round, because you know, rolling round things is easier than flat things. He can go from his back to his side, but you know who wants to lay with your face in the carpet anyway. Yay Sam!
April 9, 2009 Sam got diagnosed with his first ear infection..So sad! I was suspicious only because he was mildly fussy and scratching at his ears. I kept waiting for the weeping and wailing that I always did as a kid with an ear ache, but it never came. Strong Boy! And he weighed in at a substantial 16 lbs 1 oz!
April 27, 2009 Sam rolled over from his back to his tummy! But now he doesn't seem to know what to do next. I think maybe he forgot how to roll back to his back? Haha cute though. Another sad day though, we took him back to the pediatrician.........Double ear infection! This time we knew not to wait for the screaming and yelling. He wasn't himself, so we thought we ought to take him in and get him checked. Poor fella!
May 1, 2009 Sam is officially sitting up on his own! I figure it helps that he has a luscious spare tire around his waist to rest on his thighs. I can't believe how fast he is growing!
May 6, 2009 Got the walker out to test the waters. He successfully moves towards targets! Yay Sam!
May 7, 2009 Sad day, I put the swing away because, lets face it, Sam has more places to sit in the Living Room than we do. It just means that he is getting bigger, and is not my teeny tiny little new born anymore.
June 25, 2009 It happened! Sam cut his first tooth today! bottom right. Yay Sam! Bring on the food!
June 29, 2009 Another tooth! bottome left. WOO HOO!
Matthew and I have been married, well long enough to have a three year old named Max and a four month old named Sam. We hail from Montana, and hope to get back there after we are done with school in a year or so.
