The Before

Change is hard. Really hard. Many do everything they can to avoid it and some have anxiety about it. Simply put, change means that 'something' is just not the same as before.

I'll admit I'm a creature of habit. I eat the same things, do the same things, and enjoy when my week is 'normal'.

But this 30th year of life has me looking at change in a whole new light. With all change....comes good. I swear by that! What change in your life hasn't challenged you to look at something different or more positive, made you a better person, made your life more rich, or brought your relationships to a deeper level?

Our lives have changed with the birth of our three little ones, but I can't tell you what life was like 'before' then. Change has had a way of making me appreciate what I have now, making me forget what a dinner without kids felt like....change has added so much more value to my life and I don't miss a minute of 'the before'.

What I can tell you is that 'the before' had none of this. xoxo

Change is perfect. Change is God's perfect plan for our lives.

And, before all of this...life must have been REALLY BORING!!

I'm baaaackkk with 3 kids!!!!

It's been so long since I last blogged, that I forgot my password.....oh geez!

EXCITING NEWS!!!! The babies are here, healthy, and happy!!! Mommy (me) and Daddy are in love with our little peanuts and so incredibly thankful for these precious gifts!! They are almost three weeks old!! {born April 30th!!}

Amelia was born first at 7:38 pm and weighed 5 lbs. and 15 ounces! She has a head full of dark curly hair, a great sun tan, and the looooongest fingers!! She LOVES to talk and wiggle around. She's a good eater and doesn't mind the bows that mommy 'has' to put on her head. :) Too fun!!

Andrew was born second at 7:39 pm and weighed 5 lbs and 6 ounces! He also has a head full of dark wavy hair, but not as much as Amelia. He has a cute button nose and the skinniest little legs and arms. :) He loves to cuddle with his big sis and screams when we take her from him. He barely fusses and is a 'go with the flow' kind of guy!

In love with these pics of them together :)

Hopefully I'll post again soon! :) Right now we're busy changing diapers and entertaining Collins! What a GREAT big brother!! {he kisses them all the time!!!}
