Added pictures!

Yes, you heard it here. I added pictures to the website. Go Here.

The link from 12-11 to 12-18 has THE BEST picture of Sarah EVER! At least to date anyways. :) She makes my heart melt.

Anyways - It's Friday and Matt has almost two weeks off! There was a 'Permissive TDY' that the Air Force established this month for the husbands to get paternity leave when their wives have kidlets. They are authorized 10 days within the first 60 days of birth. Matt is technically only taking three but it's working out for him to be home for almost two weeks. Yay! So it will be nice to have him home while Anne is here. :) We can go places all together.

Sarah is doing well as far as I can tell! I need to schedule her 2-month well baby visit soon. She probably won't get in until after the first of the year anyways. She is nursing constantly which is somewhat draining. Makes it very hard to go places with her. She still doesn't take the pacifier from me so when she gets worked up when we are out I have to nurse her. I'm still not that great at it so we just tend to make quick trips. I really hope that gets better. If it doesn't, I don't know what to do. I can't stay at home for months!!

Christian is good. Although not CLEARLY, he will say 'Here you go' when he hands you something. It's pretty cool in my book! We are trying to teach him colors with a book and with his legos. Slow going with that... He isn't dumb, that's for sure. He knows what is going on and gets the hang of things really quick. Have to be careful what he sees or else he will be doing it a second later!

So, all for now. I need to get Bubba in bed and myself into something more comfy so we can watch TV.

Don't forget to check out the pictures!

I wish our lives were more interesting!

That's right, I said it. We are boring! Who knew!? haha

I just wish that we went places every day or did different things all the time so that I could share them with you all. Just not a lot of out and about for us!!

Sarah is cute as a button. She is so long now and is in quite a bit of 3 month outfits and some 6 months sleepers. I bought some leggings for her at Old Navy because she really didn't have a lot of bottoms. I put her in LOTS of polka dots the other day and I thought it was adorable. Matt said 'hideous'. :-( **click the picture to see the full view**
I admit...little much, but isn't she just PRECIOUS!?

Speaking of her sleepers. I had to get out some of Christian's old ones while I washed some of Sarah's. It was the strangest thing to have her in blue and nursing her. It was like Christian was a baby again! So unreal to look down and see the profile of Christian's face. Then it was strange to see her in pink again after I changed her the next day. Don't tell Sarah this, but it was fun to be with 'Christian' as a baby again!! :-)

And speaking of Christian's old clothes....I'm selling most of them. I took out the ones that I love and don't want to get rid of but I figured I better sell them to somebody who can use them now. It will be quite a few years before we have another. It was fun to go back down memory lane and recall all the times he wore the clothes. I'm keeping the overalls he came home from the hospital in, his first pair of shoes, some sleepers that I loved, and some outfits that are just darn cute. His clothes are going to a gal named Lynn that I met here at a Bunco game. She just had a son this October. I also made a blanket for her!

And speaking of Christian... :-) He is going through a growth spurt I think. He is just all over the attitude spectrum and has been sleeping longer during naps and even slept a full 12 hours last night.

He had a playdate today with the same girl from the park a few months ago. It was fun. They were going to go out back and play but it rained ALLLLL day yesterday so the backyard was just soaked and muddy. They had fun inside though and they played with Christian's toys and ran around in circles. It was fun to see and I hope to get them together and play more often. A pool date is next I think. They both enjoy the sprinklers at the pool near our house.

Matt took his final today. Thinks he didn't do all that great on it but even if he did bomb it, he will get a C in the class. So all is not lost, he passed!

I am well. Tired some days but that is to be expected with two kids under two!!

I better sign off. Christian had a late nap because of the playdate today and is now on a meltdown before bedtime!!

Found this while blog-browsing. Read it - love it.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not shouting "I'm clean livin'."
I'm whispering "I was lost,
Now I 'm found and forgiven."

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I don't speak of this with pride.
I'm confessing that I stumble
and need Christ to be my guide.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not trying to be strong.
I'm professing that I'm weak
And need His strength to carry on.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not bragging of success.
I'm admitting I have failed
And need God to clean my mess.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not claiming to be perfect,
My flaws are far too visible
But, God believes I am worth it.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I still feel the sting of pain.
I have my share of heartaches
So I call upon His name.

When I say... "I am a Christian"
I'm not holier than thou,
I'm just a simple sinner
Who received God's good grace, somehow!

Not much going on..

We haven't been doing too much around here. Pretty boring actually, but I figured I would at least say hello to everyone!

So...HI! :-)

I've been working on an update/Christmas letter but it is slow going. Seems that every time I start on it one, or both, of the kidlets needs me. But I'm almost there! So they should be in the mail by next Wednesday.

We are same old around here. Matt goes to work and I stay home and keep the kids occupied. Finally got some pictures resized so I just have to add them. Promise I'll get to it!!!! haha

Sarah woke up from her catnap so off I go!! :)
