about us...

I'm The Mommy, a SAHM to Maggie & Ellie. I'm married to Big Daddy, an engineer, grad student and our hard-working provider.
I blog instead of scrapbooking in hopes of preserving a part of our life for the future.
We enjoy beach trips, going to Church and spending time together...all as a family...because that's what we are.

What I Learned This Week

I'm finally on board for JoLynne's "What I Learned This Week Carnival". Here are a few things that I learned this week...some with pictures!

  • I really, really, really miss our old town, our old friends and our old church.
  • Having a play date with The Mommies, their boys and our other mommy-friend just made me miss them even more.
  • Two's enough, but having three can be so much fun and easier than I imagined. At least three is fun when it's a visit from Cousin Callie and not a permanent resident.

  • Even though we swear that our kids have missed each other over the past 7 weeks, they still go their separate ways. I guess it's because they're all three years old.

  • Six weeks of Baby Ellie really flew by, even though it seems like she's always been with us. I love her silly faces! (and yes, she's wearing a boy bib)

  • Seven weeks of living in this temporary apartment has felt like an eternity.
  • Going to see my midwife for my six week check-up sort of made me miss being pregnant since I was the only one in the waiting room without a baby belly.
  • I don't miss being pregnant enough to plan for a third baby...yet.

Three is fun but for me it was a lot harder transitioning from 2 to 3. Six weeks already? Time flies.

Babies grow so super fast it seems like only yesterday that our little one was born and now in just 2 short months will turn a year old. Man how fast time truly changes

Man, this whole play date thing! Hilarious that they all went separate ways!

From 2 to 3 was a HUGE step for us ....mainly because they now outnumber the parents!

Great lessons, my lessons for this week are finally on my blog.
