It's not that I am so organized, or diligent, or amazing.
I get these recent pictures and posts up for two reasons:
1) For the grandma's and aunties and all the family far from us in body.
2) Because AJ and the children are running the home so I can rest.
Which is what I've been doing. Rest is good. Aloria is pretty good at it too:-)
She's been nothing but a pleasure. Well, that and a wonder.
Each of my other children too, as I see them rise to new challenges and embrace things that are hard
or not fun (such as doing the necessary chores to keep things afloat).
Zachary has been cooking for us. He even made a grocery list and Dad took the 6 big kids shopping
(everyone knows that grocery shopping with dad is FUN! It's a whole different ball game.).
Here's last night's dinner of fajitas - well done my son!
Tonight he made hamburgers and green jello and took them up the hill to share with cousins.
The Bugletts climb up on the bed all through the day to cuddle and read, and admire sister.
It's been delightful to see their love and devotion to her already.
I am soaking in every moment with Aloria in these first few days. I love it.
There have been the usual hormones and pains that go with the package,
but these are the memories to savor. They are the ones I want to keep with me always:-)
When I thought of being a mom, I never dreamed of THIS! ~Five heart melting smiles ~never getting tired of midnight feedings ~having all the answers ~not minding dirty faces ~enjoying watching the boys eat! ~falling in love with pigtails ~appreciating overalls ~appreciating a washing machine! ~wanting to do everything better ~falling in love a million times
