The peas in my pod


Some of my blogging friends have said I don't add enough pictures, so here you go. The one of Kody was from the day he and I went to Knotts Berry Farm together and he just HAD to have his face painted. Kody is getting so big and is such a joy in my life. He is the reason Lennix is here. (and if you know me, you know why...) He is currently taking golf lessons and loves every second of it! He is doing so well in school (thank goodness!) and I am so proud of his progress he makes in reading and math. Our fridge is going to run out of room because of all the A+ tests he keeps bringing home! He is such a good brother to Lennix and is always willing to help watch her. He's even mastered changing her diaper! Lucky me...
Then there is Lennix. What do I say about this little girl that would do her justice. Such an angel! There are moments that I touch her skin and hold her and I'm in awe of what a miracle she is. No joke. To think that the very first ultrasound I saw of her- she was only 8 cells. Thats right- cells! She is crawling EVERYWHERE and loves to get into anything she's not supposed to. Makes my days very interesting to say the least. She is walking around the furniture like it's going out of style and recently (yesterday) started letting go and standing on her own. I am grateful for these little milestones but sad at the same time. I really don't know if we will have another baby so these small moments I get to share with her are bittersweet. It's all going so fast!
I am so thankful to be a mother to these two beautiful children. I am blessed to have a husband that works so hard for us and I'm able to stay home with them all day. I wouldn't change it for anything! Even on the hard days....

It seems like just yesterday I was in bed with you laughing about stinky strawberries while Jared fetched us some food. Time flies. I do LOVE your kids. I don't want to take care of them, but I would give them a kidney. I think you should make more!

Oh, you are right about the bittersweet part!! I feel like everything is going too fast and now I see what a short time your children are actually "babies". I tagged you on my blog. You have to go check it out.
