Bubs has asked to do preschool at home for the past three days in a row and I have had to come up with things off the top of my head that interest him. We painted, practiced his name more, counted blocks and more, but I really felt the need for more structure. The other evening I looked up scheduling tips for stay at home moms and for homeschooling. I printed it all off and plan on implementing it tomorrow. So hopefully April 1, 2010 will be the start of a beneficial schedule for both the children and myself. I am praying it helps us in many ways.

-???!!!-I am sad because of the negative things I heard tonight. I wasn't sure if I wanted to talk about them at all because I don't want to spread the negativity. I know the truth, and that's what matters. I'm sorry to the other parents I know who go through similar things. I didn't know what it felt like, and now I do. I'm sorry. I don't know your kids, or any of you that well. I know what I read about you. You all do hold a special place in my heart though. I learn from you, and I feel your pain and your joy when I read about your lives. And as sorry as I am that any of us have to go through this, I am happy that we can lean on and learn from each other.

I was going to skip this weeks i heart faces challenge, as I didn't have any decent jumping pictures in my photo library. However, yesterday when we decided to go outside it happened to be raining. :-) Of course, Austi, being the boy that he is, just HAD to jump in the puddles. :-) He was definitely full of joy while doing it too.
We ♥ spring!

"Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened."
Jeremy and I got out the crib for Kheaven earlier today. (last night) He went to sleep just perfectly in it. I can't believe no more bassinet til who knows when... if again. Wow. I'm going to miss this moment.
I love it right now though.
I love watching my kids grow. I love seeing the wonderful little people they're becoming. I love the moments where I know I'm definitely doing some things right. There have been so many moments lately, so many times my heart is so big and I can't imagine life being much better.
I am so blessed.
Thank you God.
I was thinking earlier how much of a gift my children are, and how even though they were created through me and carried by me that they are God's. I feel so great that He's given me the opportunity to raise them. I was also thinking about adoption and how I would come about having adopted children differently than biological children, but that they would be just the same in the sense that God would be trusting me with them and I would be blessed by having them. :) One baby at a time though.
Lol... If I can even say that.
I have two babies right now!
K's getting baptized 3/21. It will be his six month birthday and World Down Syndrome Awareness day.
I'll miss moments like my babies being baptized too someday.
And yet I know there's always more to look forward to!
