4 Months Already

27 11 2007

Well, with all that is going on with our families these days I forgot to post about Owen’s 4 month check up.  He is now 4.5 months (almost 5 months old).   He was 14 lbs. 9 oz. and 25 and 5/8 inches long.  So far he is the weight Grace was at 4 months and the length of Isaac.  It looks like we will have a long slim little man in the future if he keeps this up.

He is just doing AWESOME.  He is rolling everywhere already, talks non-stop (just like mommy and sister) and loves and I mean LOVES his big brother Isaac.  Which is good because for the rest of their childhood they will be sharing a room.

Which brings me to a question……do any of you have 2 or 3 children that share a room?  We have a very small house 3 bedrooms, 1 bath and a little over 1000 sq. feet.  Right now Grace and Isaac are in bunk beds and Owen is in the nursery.  This works for us right now, but the problem is we don’t have any room for toys!  We were thinking that if we moved Owen in with the other kids then they would have a small play room (the nursery, which is 8 ft. by 10 ft.).  Or should I just try and keep the toys ect. in the bedroom with the kids and suck up the no play room.  Would they just sleep better that way?

Lots to think about, but if any of you moms out there have any ideas I would love to hear them!  Thank you!

My Little Bit of “Grace”

27 11 2007

My little girl is such a sweet thing to have around.  Expecially when it comes to cooking and cleaning.  She loves to hop up on the chair with her apron on and cook with me.  She will make almost anything with me.  She also loves to empty the dishwasher and put the wet clothes into the dryer.

If you ask her what she wants to be when she grows up she will tell you “5, 6, 7, 8 babies I will have”.  It is cute.  She also so badly wants to be like me. 

Grace has taught me to control my anger, love on the kids more, enjoy the moments that are passing so quickly, read books to the baby and to just be more patient.  How has a little 2 year old taught me so much in these past few months?  By just coping EVERYTHING I do!  She talks to her babies like I talk to her, she hugs and kisses her babies like I do her, she gets excited with every little thing Owen does and she is the sweetest thing at times.

I love that God knew that I would need a little mirror during these difficult years of parenting toddlers and with Grace I am more aware of my actions.

Thank you God for your little bit of “Grace” given to me during this time.
