Things I've learned

I've learned that just when I thought I was procrastinating, God's timing is perfect and his plan is impeccable. We have been blessed with exactly what we need, when we need it during this entire journey. Praise the Lord.

I've learned Thanksgiving day is a fun day for baby to try his first food: sweet potatoes. He couldn't eat them fast enough!

I've learned to ignore that we have a baby boy and a purple Bumbo. (Look at those little toes all curled up!)

I've learned that when you think you are talented and changing a horrible diaper in the backseat as fast as you can, the baby will pee all over his own face and your car leading to horrible screams. Even if you haven't been peed on in months.

I've learned that schedules do wonders for sleeping through the night.
Bath, bottle, bed = happy baby and happy mama.

Baby loves Christmas tree lights.

I've learned leaving the house with a 4 month old takes up my entire car. How does something so tiny take so much stuff?!

The baby sense movement monitor has given me back my sleep. I've learned I cannot convince a 4 month old they need to sleep on their back.

I've learned that as long as a craft takes less than 15 minutes and has only 2 steps, I can still consider myself 'crafty'.

I LOVE sips n' strokes!

Lastly, I've learned the days go by so much faster as each one passes and I want them to slow down! I look at my mom and think about how not too long ago she was in my shoes, raising her her children, 28 years old, and then all of the sudden, her kids are grown, she has 4 grandchildren and 30 years have gone by. It feels like a blink of an eye.


  1. Aw! I love this post! Sounds like you're doing well. I love the pic of you feeding him! You look cute! Glad he loved those sweet potatoes! :)

  2. God's timing is truly amazing. What a blessing your little guys is. He is so perfect!
