"I Love You"

First of all, I want to thank all of you for the well wishes and prayers for this pregnancy. It means SO much to me. I welcome and appreciate ALL prayers! So far, nothing new to report. I hope to get more details on here soon about the pregnancy, but I think I'll save that for another post.

Elliana and I have had kind of a rough time over the past couple of weeks. It appears that my sweet Elliana has hit the terrible twos a little early. Lately she's been spending a lot of time in time-out and I've been exhausted from disciplining her. At the end of the day Caleb and I are always questioning if we're making the right decisions when it comes to discipline and picking our battles. This raising a child stuff is hard work, and we're just beginning.

Lucky for Elliana, she just started saying "I love you" over the last week or so too. It melts my heart every time she says it. Sometimes it even puts me in a better mood. ;)

I had to share with all of you:

I love this girl, despite the fact that disciplining her is NOT fun.

It is a wonderful day when you hear those words from your little ones.

Susannah has been in the terrible twos for a while as well. We have yet to figure out something she responds to consistently. It does get so tiring but the long term efforts are so worth it. We are just starting to see who worth it is it with Isaiah. I would much rather do a few years of hard work than try to change bad behaviors in a teenager:) Keep going with Elliana, you guys are great parents!

Have you guys read Shepherding a Child's Heart? I've just started it, but I've heard AMAZING things about it, and so far it's proving to be true! Keep seeking the Lord for wisdom, the world's wisdom is often no wisdom at all.
Love, Sarah

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
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.

We fight one day and then the next day we're fine. We're always loud and crazy when we get together. We're very passionate. We've been through it all together, lots of ups and downs. We're eachother's biggest supporters.
