I know I’ve explained this before.. but #3 and 3.5 are 16 hours apart, but were born at different hospitals from different parents. Yet by some fantastic blessing they are sisters and we love them both.
Here are a couple of pictures showing how hard it was just getting them to blow out their candles.
#6's crib is in The Man and my bedroom. I've always had the babies (when they were babies) sleep close to us. If you follow me on Instagram you'd know that I sometimes take photos of my children when they can't sleep. Last night #6 would not go to sleep..
So we watched a little Seinfeld…
Then his sweet sister #3 came in to talk (like she sometimes does). #6 asked her to "peassse get in the bed wit me Aheee." Being the good sister she is, she did. I fell asleep thinking she went up to her room, when I got up later to check on him, this is what I saw.
When I woke up here's what I saw:
This totally cracks me up, and is quite possibly the sweetest thing ever. Sometimes I feel sorry for my other children, because they didn't have as MANY people to love on them as #6 does everyday.
Listening: My children are all busy doing school stuff. Currently they are kind of quiet. #6 is running around in the new shoes I bought him say; "I wanna go outsidddeeee! Peeese Mommy?"
Loving: That #6 is an EXCELLENT communicator. He is ALWAYS talking, ALWAYS learning. It makes my heart smile.
Thinking: I have entirely TOO MUCH stuff to write down/correct before the first of September. I'm reading this super cool book on confirmation… and I want to change some of the curriculum I wrote for confirmation to include the stuff I just read. I also have the after school program curriculum to finish, a sermon to write for September 29th, and PowerPoints to finish for September's Youth Group.
Wanting: To go to Longhorn with the man.
Needing: To plan my meals for this weekend and the upcoming week. Figure out what kind of cake #3 wants for her birthday Tuesday and what kind #3.5 wants for her birthday Wednesday.
Stalking: I'm embarrassed to say it, but Candy Crush Saga level 144… don't think less of me 😉
