So big

I keep forgetting to post that Eli is "so big" as you can see from the picture pose. He is now taking a few steps here and there. Can stand on his own. And can even stand up from sitting. He can also climb up on the couch on his own.

Soon he'll be running this house.

Keep moving forward

So I always have this debate on the blog.  I wish I was someone who always stayed caught up and got everything blogged when it happened.  But I know that will never be.  I have started a little side project to have photo books printed, so that I have books that the kids and I can flip through to see old photos.  I like to scrapbook, but honestly don’t make the time for it.  I realized when I was looking for “naughty” kid photos that it is hard to go through and scan all my photos on the computer.  And more than that the kids have no way of looking at photos.  So with that in mind, I’ve decided on the blog to mostly keep moving forward.  If I want to go back and post an irresistibly cute photo then no biggie, but I’m not going to stress if every life event does not end up on the blog.  I’m happy to still be blogging.  I was slow to start compared to many of my friends, but most of my friends are not still doing it.  Which makes me a little sad.  I guess Instagram and Facebook are easier.  But I loved blog stalking and miss it a little.

Friends over

I did it. This week I managed to have friends over a few times. And it just completely lifted my spirits. It is so nice to be social. I just need to get control over my initial introvertedness and be more outgoing.

I also got an email today requesting for a photographer. It is a friend of someone I shot their wedding. And they want me for their wedding. I am so mixed emotion. It has been a long time since I've done anything professionally. I always become a complete ball of nerves. But part of me really misses it. So I will probably say yes and then stress until June about it. :)

And tonight for some reason my kids won't go to bed. Could be all the dessert they ate. But mommy and daddy are both running low on patience. So off to put another kid back in their bed.

Sundays are often not relaxing. Many times I go to bed wishing for another weekend rather than Monday to come.

Today started a bit rough. We had stake conference which meant 2 hours of sermon. Yeah that is about 2 hours too much for Ben. He really struggles to sit through church. Speaking of is anyone has great wisdom on how to get him to go to class please share. So needless to say we spent a lot of time in the hall.

But last night I was able to go alone and actually listen to the adult session which was marvelous. It filled my heart again and put some oil back in my lamp. I also got a sweet package from someone in my ward to "brighten my day". And honestly I'm not sure she will fully know how much it meant to me.

But today we actually did get some rest. I took a sweet nap with Ben. And then we spent time with family.

I had a thought at the meeting today. Just as the Lord's peace doesn't mean life without trials. The Lord's rest on Sunday doesn't mean a day of no work. Something I need to keep in mind when it feels like a day of a lot of work. :).
