We like hats

Little Mamma

Maia is in a "baby phase."  She is usually carrying around a doll (or two), or pushing her little stroller, or telling me that "Babee Awesh cay-in'!" (if I'm not responding quickly enough to Alex's fussing).

Oh how I love this shot.  
Two purses, a stroller, a backpack and a baby in a car seat.  
Feels like my life :-)

Her baby is all wrapped up in the blanket.

People person

Alex is a little people person.  If he feels that he has not been given enough attention in a while he will start to fuss.  Sometimes I can pick him up  . . . and sometimes I can't.  So, I do the next best thing: I plop him in the Bumbo somewhere near where the girls are playing.

Works like a charm!

The heavens declare the glory of God . . .

. . . the skies proclaim the work of His hands.  Psalm 19:1

Taken outside our dining room window.  The picture does not do it justice!

Moments like these . . .

Students who participate in Kriz take part in a two week training time in the summer.  They also go to three weekend retreats throughout the year for more teaching.  This is one of those weekends.  Matt is mentoring a few students there and is also in charge of food for the weekend (yeah - word is out that he loves to cook and is good at feeding large groups.)  He left a few hours ago so it's just the kids and me here at home.

And this is part of my "new normal."  Being at home with three kids, three and under while Matt is at meetings, retreats etc.  I'll be honest - it's often been really hard having to sit out on things that I would love to be a part of.

But now I get to enjoy moments like these.  And I love them!
