A Sweet Reminder

My husband got home early from work the other day. I left our son with him so he could nap and I took our daughter to the mall to do some shoe shopping. When we pulled up to the mall, Constance said, "Daddy and Levi are going to miss us!" I agreed that they would. Then she said, "Mom, Jesus loves us with all of His heart!" Awww. I told her that was true and to never forget that!

"Elmo's" and Shoes

Constance can easily identify body parts and has been for awhile. She correctly uses each name properly...except for her elbows. Without fail, no matter how much we correct her, if she hurts her elbows she will say, "I just hurt my ELMOS's mamma!" While we try not to encourage her to use other names for her body parts, it is just so cute when she says it! Also, I'm not sure if I had already posted this is or not, but Levi LOVES shoes! Slippers, rain boots, hiking boots, tennis shoes, sandals-you get the idea. He thinks they are all great and willingly lets us put his shoes on. He often gets mad if we take his shoes OFF before he is ready to have them off, especially if they are his Diego shoes!

Words, words and words

My sweet Constance is becoming such a big girl in what she says. I've been amazed at her vocabulary since turning three years old this past December. The other morning after being up for awhile, I asked her if she was ready to eat some breakfast. She squinted her eyes, put one finger up to her lip as if in thought, and said, "probably mama." Constance, Levi and I were playing in our back yard the other day. Levi was putting sand in his bucket and Constance was playing with Levi's tractor. I looked up from reading and said, "Are you playing Constance?" She looked at me and said, "No, I'm not playing mommy." I said, "Oh really? Then what are you doing?" Constance said, "Well, I am actually playing but this is an OLD game!" Speaking of words, Levi's list is growing. While it is not 100% clear usually, his newest words are Diego, Stand up, Milk, and Thank you. He also really likes to say No. *Sigh* I am now 16 weeks pregnant and after interviewing three midwives I found the one we are going to go with! I start under her care the week after next. Most people think I am crazy for doing a home birth. I will gladly explain my reasons if you want to know. Just ask!

Changes for 2012

First wonderful news-We are expecting baby number 3! I am due October 11th (which is our 9th wedding anniversary). Once baby gets here, we will have a newborn, a newly 2 year old, and an almost 4 year old. Yikes! We are also choosing to have a home birth with this one. After two, non medicated hospital births, with awful experiences, home birthing seemed like a better choice! Since I am 99% sure this will be our last child, why not? :) Now I get to be one of those crazy home birthing, breast feeding, make my own baby food, baby wearing, cloth diapering type gal! Score!

Second news is that we are no longer Tennesseans. Yep. We moved to New Mexico late last month for a better job for my husband. What a beautiful place God has made.
