Random Thoughts

I definitely have the winter blues. This is my least favorite time of year because the Holiday season is over, and it seems like the next holiday is forever away. Plus, I love snow and all, but around this time of year I get spring fever. I want to see the sun so I can go on walks, take Ellie to the park, and grill outside.

Because of my winter blues, I keep looking at these pictures on a weekly basis:





This is how Caleb and I are going to celebrate our 5th anniversary. We're taking a 4 night cruise to the Caribbean in June. I can NOT wait!! We've been saving for this trip for a long time. It will be the first cruise for both of us and we're both very excited. Elliana will not be coming along. She will be splitting time with Caleb's family and with mine. I will miss her SO much, but I know she's in good hands and with people she loves.

As I've mentioned before, my daughter is very funny and very smart, but I often joke that she is smart in a bad way. Here's a perfect example: as I was trying to rock her and put her down for a nap this afternoon, she took her pacifier out of her mouth, then threw it across the room, and exclaimed "Uh-oh"! She knew that by doing this I would have to turn the lights on and get up to find the pacifier. I had to try really hard not to laugh. Seriously! Where does this girl learn these things?! I only wish I could catch her doing these things on video.

Can't you just see the mischief in her face? This is one of her 1 year photos we had taken a few weeks ago:



Her latest favorite thing to do is to move piles of toys from one side of the room to the other. Or she likes to bring us anything just to hear us say "thank you". She always looks so proud of herself and smiles so big when she brings us something. I love her.

Changing subjects. I've mentioned before that watching The Bachelor is one of my guilty pleasures. Does anyone else think that Jake was an interesting choice for the Bachelor? Don't get me wrong, he's a really nice guy and he's good looking and all, but something about the way he interacts with everyone bugs me a little. I can't put my finger on it. Oh well, I'm still watching anyway. ;)



My next Dr's appointment (in February) can't come soon enough for me. Caleb and I are ready to begin "trying" for our next baby. Well, we can't exactly try when my body won't cooperate. For those of you that don't know our history, I have PCOS and it's become very clear to me once again that I'm not ovulating. I hope that's not too much information.

I have a date with Caleb tomorrow night and I am very much looking forward to it. We're going to dinner and then a hockey game. Before we had Elliana, we would go out to dinner all the time! I never knew how much I took that for granted.

Anyway, I'm sorry this post was so random. I better get going now. I just heard Elliana wake up from her nap.

I hope you all have a great weekend.

Praying that God would miraculously give you another miracle! Blessings

I hope the doctor's appointment goes well for you. I just went yesterday to get back on metformin. Susannah finally stopped nursing last month and my body has gone crazy again. Elliana sounds so much like Susannah in attitude. Susannah can be outright defiant when she wants too. Anyhow it looks like we'll be in Loveland in March, not sure on exact times yet but hopefully for about 3 weeks.

I like random posts because it gives me an insight into your daily lives. I LOVE Ellie stories so please keep them coming. I don't get to spend enought time with my niece.
And oh yeah, take lots and lots of pictures of the cruise so I can talk Jeremy into one for next summer (or our whole family together) =)

I'd love to hear about the cruise deal you found. I am thinking about that for our seventh this summer, we've never been on one. I'll be praying for that second baby to come sooner than later, but I bet if you do the same formula this time around, with the clomid and such, it won't be long;).

It sounds so fun--I can't wait to see the pictures!! =) I hope I can talk Dad into one someday!! Elliana is growing so fast--her personality cracks me up!! =) She is so fun!! We will be praying for you and Caleb as you start planning for another baby.

About Me

My Photo
I am a daughter of the King. Saved by grace. Follower of Christ. I love my God and I believe that he is faithful and true to his word! I'm still figuring out and trying to follow his plan for my life. I am a wife to my best friend Caleb, a mother to my miracle babies (they are my greatest joy and challenge), a sister and best friend to 3 passionate women, and a daughter to 2 amazing parents that continue to teach me what it is to be real and faithful to God and his word. I am lucky to get to be a stay at home Mom (thanks to God's provision). I love music, singing, coffee, cooking, baking, traveling, our beautiful state of Colorado, and mostly being with the family and friends that I love!

Husband, Caleb

Husband, Caleb
Caleb is an amazing husband and father. He is always so good to me. He is my best friend. He is the romantic one. We love to laugh and spend time together. We've been married for 7 years and I just love that I get to spend the rest of my life with him.

Our 1st Miracle

Our 1st Miracle
Elliana Faith... God blessed us with our first miracle little girl in December 2008. She is sweet, smart, spunky, funny, strong willed, precocious, extremely outgoing, vocal and so full of life! She brings us so much joy.

Our 2nd Miracle

Our 2nd Miracle
Ethan James,.. God blessed us with our little boy in March 2011. Ethan was a bit of a surprise and an even bigger miraclle. Ethan is ALL BOY! He is very active, into sports and running around. He is also sweet, introverted, affectionate, and laid back. These days he often has us laughing, he's starting to show a little bit of "clown" in him. He makes our hearts happy too. :)

Our 3rd Miracle

Our 3rd Miracle
Emsley Jeannette... Our surprise baby girl was born on June 11th, 2013 and came into the world 4 weeks early. Her first 2 weeks of life were spent in the NICU, but due to God's hands and the prayers of many people, she grew quickly and came home to join our family! She is an easy, sweet baby and we are enjoying getting to know her personality.
