Kyle and I went to the Titans/Vikings game with my dad today.  We were blessed with tickets in a skybox, and just let me say, that is the way to watch a game.  It was shady, roomy, not too loud, and there was free food!  I can’t say that the food was great, but it […]

Emotions are such a complex thing.  God created them as part of who we are.  We experience so much of life through emotions.   I have felt the joy of seeing my child for the first time, and inversely experienced the sorrow of losing one (actually three through miscarriages).  I have never wanted to be […]

As Savannah turned one, her will and opinion also turned on. She has responded well to discipline, and she definitely understands no now. The hardest part about this stage is not knowing how much she understands.  I’m realizing that she understands a lot more than I think she does.  She has had one huge meltdown […]

Part of Savannah’s routine before bedtime is cuddle time.  It only lasts a few minutes, but it is definitely one of the sweetest moments of the day. She usually wants to lay on your chest and she’ll pat your arm ever so sweetly.  Tonight I took my time and decided to cherish the moment.  Just […]

This past Friday, before the day had truly gotten underway, I learned 2 lessons.  In hopes of others not having to learn the same lessons, I thought I would share. First of all, diapers do have a capacity limit.  I knew this must be true, but I didn’t really know where that marker was.  Surprisingly, […]
