I'm Gonna Miss This!

We're not too fond of bathtime...

But never fear...big brother is here! And to tell you the truth, I am very appreciative because he really is a good helper! (Notice the white ring around the mouth...the bag full of doughnuts on the counter is the culprit! We love them! Along with peanut M&M's, strawberry cake, coconut & pecan cookies and oatmeal creme pies! That's my diet for this week! I'm really gonna get these extra baby lbs. off eatin' like that!!!)

He said, "All done Mama!"

Who is that monster under the bed?...

This is now one of his favorite places to hang out.

Yesterday John had all of his routine tests done in Dothan and he came home bearing gifts. This cutsie little t-shirt for John Luke and a bag full of goodies from Bath and Body Works for Mama. (We still have to teach Daddy how to shop for little girls.) As for the tests, the results that were available yesterday looked good, we will know about the others tomorrow.

Life is very sweet with two sweeties like this! I just know now how it feels to be so very busy that you don't even know if you've brushed your teeth, or washed your hair, or even changed out of your sleeping clothes when Daddy comes home for lunch! (Or by the end of the day for that matter!) But, I will not complain because I know one day I'm gonna miss this! It's worth all the stinky diapers, vomit stained outfits, "Mama hold this", "Mama juice please", "Mon Mama, pay" (Come on Mama, play), dirty floors, fingerprints on everything, Dr.'s visits, drive-thru meals, pain in places you didn't know you had, and SLEEPLESS nights!!!!!!! And I know I couldn't do it without the help of my sweet husband and family! Thanks Guys! I LOVE Y'ALL!!!

PRECIOUS, Beth!!!! I love the last paragraph too! That's the truth! It's amazing how you can be so worn out, frustrated and ragged, and SO CRAZY HAPPY & THANKFUL at the same time!

I love the picture of Allie B in the bath! How cute that J.L likes to hang out under the crib. Kinda like her little security guard. He is such a good big brother. I am glad to hear that John's test results came back and are good!! You have a beautiful family!

I love the pictures of your beautiful family! I kinda know what you mean one a 1 kiddo level; I told Jeff the other day I never eat at the table anymore or put on makeup any were except in the car parked somewhere. It is so worth it & I agree I'm really gonna miss it! Glad to hear John is ok, & girl eat those donuts & don't worry about the pounds. Soon you'll be running around like mad woman (even more so than now).

So true!! I definitely miss Madison that size, and everytime she wants to play and I just really want to sit in my chair and do nothing I stop and think, one day she won't want to play with mommy. Even as I type this, she is tapping my arm saying mommy, mommy, let me sit in your lap! Then she says, mommy come play cards with me!! Yay!! She just sneezed all over the keyboard! Ha! LOL! Cherish these moments. Enjoy!!

She is beautiful! She looks just like John Luke to me. I think he is a combo of the two of you and looks like she is too! I love you! Donna and Ron are coming over in a couple of weeks so I will send your gift over by then.
