However, I think we all need to remember that people don't usually write about the fight they just had with their husband or the messy tupperware cupboard that no one sees. We (myself included) like to write about the positive things. I need not let all the stuff I read get me down because, it's not the whole picture of reality.
So, in case I've ever made anyone else feel less significant, I'd like to set the record straight with just how imperfect I am!
~I'm not as organized as I wish I was.
~I love being a stay at home mom but, sometimes I miss my old job, a lot.
~My marriage isn't perfect.
~When I'm just home during the day with Judah and Paisley, I often spend the day looking like I just rolled out of bed.
~I don't read my Bible as much as I should or pray enough but, I'm working on it.
~I stress out about little things that don't really matter.
And SO many more things!!!!
On a positive note....here is a picture of a little girl that to me is just perfect!

Yesterday morning we stayed home from church and just stayed in our PJ's. I started sorting through old toys and organizing Judah and Paisley's rooms. I don't like when there's stuff that needs to be put away and things that need a "home" so, I started working on cleaning our house up from Christmas. I pulled the bassinet out of Paisley's room and had Jeremiah put it in the garage. It's SAD to have the bassinet back in the garage. It means that our Baby #2 is already getting bigger. Paisley now sleeps in her crib and not in the bassinet in her room. She is getting older and the bassinet is back in storage for when we have another tiny baby (not anytime soon!).
Yesterday afternoon I headed out to snag some Christmas decorations that are on clearance. I love having a few new things to put on the tree each year but, I don't love full price so, I go out after Christmas and see what I can find for at least 50% off. I found a few fun things and then I headed home because it was windy and cold and I had Paisley with me.
This morning I woke up not feeling well. I think all the late nights that I pulled getting ready for Christmas are catching up with me. I don't want to be sick. I feel like I have a lot to do. Our house seems messy to me from all the Christmas stuff. I go to see the midwife today for my 6 week postpartum appointment, even though it's been 9 weeks. I don't like that I have to get weighed after the Christmas weekend because I ate WAY too many sweets. I'm ready to get really serious about loosing this dang baby weight.
I'm looking forward to taking all the Christmas stuff down and starting a new year. I think 2011 is going to be a great year. I'm thinking about my "resolutions". Do you have any New Year's Resolutions?

So, when things get hard, I often don't blog because if I do blog, I'll just be a big whiner. I have fun things to blog about though so, hopefully I'll get the time soon and make it more of a priority.
In the meantime, here are some recent pictures that are making me smile.
Paisley has been smiling up a storm and it's hard to catch it on camera but, this evening, I caught part of her smile. I love it!
Also, can I just brag and say that I think this little girl is getting so strong? I can't believe she can hold her head up like this already!
Here is a picture of an ornament that my mom bought for Judah when we were in Leavenworth 2 summers ago. One of the most fun things about decorating the tree is bringing out all the ornaments that have special meanings. I want to start a tradition of getting Judah and Paisley a new ornament each year and writing their name and the year on it. I think it'll be neat to have all the ornaments from each year for them and someday when they have their own homes (a very, very, long time from now!), they can have their ornaments that we've bought over the years.
Now, here is a picture that really makes me smile. My mom, with her 5 desserts on Thanksgiving. We had Thanksgiving at our house and it was really fun. Watching my mom pile her plate full of just dessert and enjoy it made me happy. She is so thin and fit so, I'm giving myself permission to blog about this.
