I can not begin to express how much I am blessed! My heart grew once again last week when this little guy was born. He is so precious! Babies make it reality to just how much our Heavenly Father loves us. He gifts us with these adorable little people to care for and teach. He trusts us so much! He loves us so much! Little baby Reed is blessed with some of the coolest parents around. He'll be a heart breaker, this one!

I feel so overwhelmed today. I remember sitting in church on Mother's Day 4 years ago and crying, wishing for nothing more than a screaming, pooping, baby! My heart ached to be a mother. Today, 4 years later, I sat in church filled with joy for the beautiful babies I have in my life. I watched Remee sit quietly, folding her arms and closing her eyes, while the prayers where said, and my heart melted. I peeked in Jade's car seat to see a silent sleeping angel, and again, my heart melted. I feel so much gratitude for these children Heavenly Father has blessed me with. They teach me everyday to have patience. They have taught me that love really can grow and grow! So, today the tears I have are not from sadness because I want a baby, but for joy because I have my babies.
I am overwhelmed with love for my own mothers today! I have three amazing mothers. My mom, Leesa, who has taught me everything from being a patient, loving person, to being a great housekeeper and cook. I love you so very much marmy! My mom, Dovey, who has taught me to be optimistic in times of trial. I feel so blessed my daddy found such a wonderful woman! My mom, Sheri, who raised an amazing man to stand by my side! You have taught me to find joy in my family and to endure! I am blessed to have a wonderful mother-in-law.
My heart is full when I think about all the mothers I know who have taught me, by example, to love my children unconditionally. I watch you all and take mental notes on how I can be more like you!
I am blessed to be a mother and to have wonderful mothers in my life! Happy Mother's Day!

On Monday we spent the afternoon at Thanksgiving Point's Tulip Festival. The flowers were so beautiful and the weather was nice and hot(80 degrees). Remee was really loving being outside. Maybe not so much in her long sleeve shirt(we went shopping later that day to buy her some much needed short sleeves). We kept Jade covered most of the time, I mean the girl glows she's so pasty. I was so glad we were able to go and appreciate the beauty that surrounds us, at least when there are master landscapers!

It's days like these that make me miss home. The smell of wet asphalt and drips of rain on my nose. The birds quiet within the nests. I remember bundling up before playing out side. It seemed to be more quiet and peaceful. The grass was squishy and the air was so fresh. Every breath was rejuvenating. I would walk home from school deep in thought. Then, returning home I would cozy up on the couch and watch the rain fall. The trees perking up from a yummy fresh gulp of water. Nothing beats it. I miss you Seattle...I miss you everyday!

I have decided to sell some items in my closet. There's nothing like a little spring cleaning right? Anyway, these items are all in good to great condition...I wouldn't sell anyone anything that was a piece of junk! If you are interested in buying anything just e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org). I will add a few bucks for shipping if you can't or do not want to come pick it up. Let me know!
