2 months to go!

I sat down to blog about our family vacation to Lake Chelan that we came home from yesterday but, I just can't do that right now. It was an amazing vacation and so much fun but, as I sat down to blog, I read some other blogs first and I came across a few things that touched my heart so deeply.

I don't know the etiquette about posting someone else's pictures so, I'm not going to do that. You need to go here though and look at these amazing photos. The 3rd one down is what got me. Actually, it made me start crying....like alot. It's so precious to see the older child loving the new baby. That will be us, so soon!

I only have 2 more months until my due date and I hope it goes by quickly! I'm so excited to hold this sweet little baby that's always wiggling around in my tummy. I'm so excited to introduce Judah to her and see how he loves her. I'm excited to be a family of four. I know it may be overwhelming but, the blessing will be greater.

Looking at those "Love Photos" put things in perspective for me this afternoon. Special moments with my husband and my babies are the things that really count. So often, I get caught up in things that seem like they are the most important but, they really aren't. For example, since we came home from vacation yesterday, I've been thinking all day about how many crumbs are in our van. I've anticipated nap time so, I could go vacuum it. These little things can consume me. It's alright for them to be important but, it's good to keep in mind that they aren't what matters the most. Slowing down to enjoy special time with the special people in our lives is what matters.

Now, I'm going to go clean my dirty vacation car....... :)


  1. I was cracking up about the crumbs in the van. When I was still single my best friend was married and had two kids. Her vehicle was a pig stye. (She admitted it, I'm not talking trash about her.) I used to think, "Why can't you clean out your car, even a little bit?" Then I had three adorable munchkins of my own and realized that it will be a really long time before I have a clean interior again. The minute it gets vacuumed out we go somewhere and there is stuff cluttering it again. I love my little people more than a clean van, at least I keep reminding myself of that and try to relax.

  2. I so hear you, Angela! It's a daily exercise in our house too! I often tell the little one "We'll go to the playground, but first I have to do this... and that... and put away this real quick... and THEN we'll go." I try to keep myself from doing that. Not easy :) Thanks for sharing, so we all know we are not alone with this struggle :)


Thank you for your comments. I read every single one of them and they always make me smile.
