Day By Day

I love these two pictures of my boys. It is so hard to get Justice to cooperate with pictures sometimes. I am just amazed always that I have two sweet little boys that provide me with such joy! They are each so special. Titus looks at me like I am the most important person in the world. Justice brings me books, sits in my lap and waits for me to tell him a story. He also runs up to me and I give him the biggest bear hug as he giggles. These moments are the best things in my life and give such purpose and meaning to me as a mommy. This is my job, my first ministry, and my priority. I don't take it lightly. These are two precious lives that I have been entrusted and anyone who thinks the mom job is not work is fooling themselves. I am raising the next generation. It is a huge undertaking.
Being a mom of two little ones really requires you to take each day as it comes and not to get ruffled if things don't go as planned. I have to keep this in mind, otherwise the days that get a little chaotic would stress me out. I do have the days where I get stressed, but really pray through it. No matter what happens, at the end of the day I have two beautiful boys and a wonderful husband.

Titus is developing more and more skills. He is really grabbing at toys and pulling them to his mouth as you can see in the picture in his bouncy seat. He loves bright colors and will get all worked up talking when something grabs his interest. He is so funny, he will get his fingers in his mouth and just talk and talk to whatever it may be. He loves the lights and fan. His talking consists of sounds like "uh," "ah," "ah-goo," "boo." I love to hear his voice! Sleeping is still about the same as I posted. Last night it was down for bed at 10:30, up at 3:30, up at 7:30 and up for good at 9:00 a.m. So, we are not real routine yet. I just wonder where the nights of sleeping 7-8 hours are? They disappeared. Oh well, we will get there. I had him weighed on Thursday at the Nursing Support group and he was 14 lbs. 7 oz. He is a little short chub at 3 1/2 mos. Justice is growing more fond of him and excitedly says "Titus" when we bring him around the baby.

Just a Quick Check In...

I want to nap so badly right now, but I also want to do a little blogging. So, I will do a quick update on our goings on. Titus is all over the place with his nighttime routine. I was getting so exhausted last week when he wouldn't go to sleep until 11:30 or later sometimes. But, last night I got him down at 9:00 yippie! But, then he got up at 12:45 and 4:45 and finally up at 8:30. At least when he went to bed so late he slept 7-8 hours. I think he did that because he had worn himself out. I am sure we will get it down one day, so I try not to stress myself out. The boys continue to get a good nap together thankfully. Titus just gets cuter and cuter. He is a chubbo more than ever. He has the sweetest voice! Justice is a mess, so adorable and very destructive when he isn't watched like a hawk. He can just about say anything and proudly says it over and over, so it really makes you think about what you say. We had a good Father's Day. Daddy got a martial arts DVD "Hero," a 12 pack of Dr. Pepper, spicy peanuts, and 3 cards I picked out to be from each one of us. He liked it all. We went to church for the 2nd week in a row. I am glad to be getting back into that routine. I love going and get so much out of our SS lessons. Titus does great in nursery, Justice has a little hard time at the end when kids are getting picked up, I think he is worrying about where mommy and daddy are. So, I am probably going to have to get him early from now on. So, that is it in a nutshell. I hope to write more later, Emily
