Loving some FAM today!

Posted on August 08, 2011 by 1 | 11 Comments

Go give your sweet Mom a hug or squeeze your little one today for me.  This is a super special day in my life.  Heaven is a brighter place because my sweet Reid and McAdory are celebrating their second birthday with our great Lord and the angels today.  I can just picture two sweet little blonde heads blowing out candles with my grandparents and all those we love in Heaven.  So wish I could be there today!! It is so easy to get frustrated over the many sleep deprived nights we have had over the last nine and a half months with Miss Cates (actually I think she has really slept all the way through the night like twice, EVER...I know, this is a me problem, not a Cates problem), or to get a little sad because my pick-up-and-go life is no longer. When those moments of "ahhhhh, won't you please just go back to sleep!!!" creep in, I am quickly reminded how much of a blessing it is be able to run back in her room and pop her paci back in her mouth and love on her for one more minute.  Wouldn't trade it for the world!!!  No matter how sleep deprived, or tired of playing chauffeur, or wiping noses, or separating fights you may be, go give your little one a squeeze and be glad they are here for you to love on!!  Life is truly a great GIFT.  Enjoy it today!!

Celebrating and grieving with you today. Prayers going your way. Miss Cates is a pretty special miracle. Hug her for me! Come to think of it, she has NEVER napped in the nursery!
