Day by Day

Thank you Charissa Khan for taking this picture!
Well, we've been super busy lately, but I wanted to give a brief update on our family. The little sweetheart pictured on the left has TOTALLY captured our hearts. The poor child is kissed from dawn to dusk. But can you blame us?

The transition from two to three children has been a lot easier then I thought it would be. This is largely due to the fact that Sariah is a super easy baby. She started sleeping through the night at four and a half weeks! I welcome the times when I have to stop and snuggle her for a while, because it makes me stop and sit for a moment.

Selena is loving Kindergarten at home. This mama loves teaching her! Poor Shana has little papers to do while Selena is working, but largely she just waits impatiently for Selena to be finished school for the day. I've had some trouble keeping her occupied, and trying to make her feel important and busy, but we are working on that.

My goals for each day are limited. School, work at home business duties, clothe all children, feed them and prepare dinner. I am not finding time to fit in laundry and house cleaning, so I tend to make a mad rush to do these things before E gets home. If I actually get anything else accomplished, it is a huge plus!

However, one thing I've learned, is that babies grow too quickly. Three year olds become five year olds too quickly, and my five year old is going to be a teenager soon. The dust bunnies can wait until later. My children need cherishing, and that is just what I am going to do!

A clean house is overrated. Enjoy the baby.

Congratulations! What a beautiful little girlie! So happy for your precious family! And you are so right-they grow up way too fast...and the dust bunnies will always be there, but they won't. :) Holly

It has been ages that I dropped by to "visit" you and I am so delighted to find another precious one added to your family!

A Happy New Year dearest Bev, and lots of love from far away, Helen

I came over from UBS (thanks for the comment you left on my blog) but I had to start scrolling through your post. I love (love, love, love) that you consider motherhood and being a wife a high calling! So with you! And what a little, perfect, (and yes, very kissable!) sweetheart you've got there! I think our kids are relatively the same age. (I have a 5 year old, a 3 year old and a soon-to-be 1 year old.)

Subscribing because, well . . . I just must!
