This Is How We Roll


Good Morning! Happy Spring!


I wanted to thank you all so much for your prayers.....

I survived week before last week solo~ but barely!

Mainly because that horrible stomach bug continued to cycle through our house for about 12 days or so!! I felt so badly for the kiddies. We spent their entire spring break in the house except for one afternoon at the park. I was doing okay until the child who had it first got it again for the THIRD time.

Luckily, I had a beautiful strength to survive it all thanks to your prayers!  I am so grateful it's over with and we are moving on!

Big Daddy was home with us last week trying his best to work. Bless him.

I love it when he's home. I feel like I can breathe a little bit.

We had THE most beautiful weather here weekend before last and spent the entire weekend outside.

Baby Preston is doing well and is just about the most delicious thing on earth!!
We are so in love with him!

Here are a few pictures of a gorgeous morning we had together ! I think they needed the sunshine and fresh air so desperately after being cooped up with the stomach bug all week.




   Pearl Baby and Big Daddy







Blowing Kisses









These two keep me busy......14 months apart!





Little Mama!
She begged and pleaded. 
The. Entire. Walk. Around. The. Lake. This is what I heard....
"PLEASE MAMA! PLEASE. PLEASE let me wear the baby!"




 So here they are! 
I have never seen her so happy!! She kissed him with every step....




And my personal favorite photo of our morning! 

This is how we roll. Amen.

For those of you who may be wondering what on earth that giant
white, marshmallow looking thing is taking up half of the stroller......

That thing happens to be my sons' bumper pads!
Usually we just wrap them around him like a giant feather boa...
They go with us everywhere. And I do mean everywhere.

If you want to find out all about it you can read the details here.



Thank you again for your prayers sweet friends! I will write again when I can catch my breath.
I'm flying solo again this week. Hope you all are knee deep in some potting soil and flower beds!

Happy Spring!

Hi Elizabeth!

I think of you every time I wear Baby Preston in that beautiful sling you sent for him!
Thank you again for blessing us!! It means so much...

I don't know how I do it other than the love I have for them is my motivating and driving factor:)
and I hang on the Lord! Big time. I couldn't do it without His love and guidance.....

Hope you all are doing well!!!

Ok, Sibi...

I really NEED to know where you found all white, not to mention soft linen, baby bedding. We have decided to leave Sweet Pea's gender a mystery and I told Lane that I wanted an all white nursery anyway. Once the baby gets here, I can just accent with blue or pink... However, I can't find all white crib bedding ANYWHERE ;-(

Either way.. the family is looking beautiful these days!! So happy to see y'all doing good!

Lots of hugs,
Angel

OH, so sorry the all the kiddies have been sick. I would hate that especially when you're alone. Loved the park pictures and adorable your oldest wanting to wear the baby. So precious. Definitely praying for you while you're alone again. Stay strong!

I've never heard of someone having the stomach bug three times in a row. That is crazy! I'm so glad you all enjoyed some sunshine. I'll be praying for you while Big Daddy is gone again!

Amanda said...

Sibi,

I am SO glad you let your sweet little "mama daughter"
wear baby Preston!!!
As, a Grandmother, I know how important that is for your sweet daughter to be a part of "mothering" him:)
Love everything about your family, pics, etc.
I know it is hard, but you seem to do it with so much grace, thank you for sharing:)

Oh I so love reading up on your family. I know these days are hectic beyond belief but what blessings surround you!
If I lived close I would come hold some of those babies!
