My sweet little babies are 4 months old. They are a third of the way through their first year.
Time is flying by. Flying by...
Just Breathe was sweet and selected me as one of the seven beautiful blogs she likes to read. I'm lazy and dont often do blog quiz type things, but thought, in honor of their 4 month birthday, I'd play along and list 7 things about me.
-I love looking at the stretch marks on my (still stretched out) belly. I can point to ones from each baby and I really love that.
-I pray. A lot really. More than that, I talk. Maybe they arent really "prayers". Fine. I talk to the Divine every day. And I enjoy that.
-I'm not as conservative as some people think I am. I'm not as liberal as other people think I am. I'm just me.
-I still look at Peter and see the boy I met almost 12 years ago. I still see that kid in his eyes and his smile. I still love him just as much and more.
-I am my mother's daughter. And, sure enough, the things she did that irritated me growing up, I now do. And I completely understand now.
-Sometimes I stand in the nursery and just watch Bobby and Maya when they are quiet. When they are really quiet, I put my hand by their noses to make sure I can feel the warm air or I rub their backs to make them squirm a bit. Just to make sure... And sometimes, when looking at them, I still cant believe they are mine. And here. And doing well.
-I physically hold all of my children when no one is around. I'll pick up Bobby and Maya and then hold onto the box of Nicholas, Sophia, and Alexander. I'll rock in the rocking chair and just look out the window, content with holding all of them...
As to seven blogs... Well, I can't pick just seven and you can see why... Hours of my days are spent hanging out with you and reading about your lives and loves and losses. I wouldnt spend those precious waking moments with you if I didnt truly care. So consider yourself beautiful and chosen and wonderful. And, if you want to share seven things about you in your comments, I'd be delighted to hear. And hey, if enough of you are interested, I can funnel them into a post so that others can be introduced to your beauty.
Time to get a shower and get breakfast. Peter is sleeping still, as are the kids, but the hotel puts out breakfast in 5 minutes. And I'm hungry... (Dont worry: I'll bring it back to the room and even bring some in for the mister...)
