Psalm 127:3-5

Behold children are a gift of the LORD,
The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Like arrows in the hand of a mighty warrior, so are the children of one's youth.
How blessed are those whose quiver is full of them

So busy, so worth it.... oh and no camera

It's been several days since I last posted and I wanted to catch up a little. We have had an incredibly busy few weeks since we got home from vacation which has allowed me little time to even think about my blog much less actually sit down and get my thoughts out on to this screen. That is why it is 8:00 am in Saturday morning. The only time I seem to find these days, just for me! I'm not complaining though. If I never have another minute just for me I would make it work because of the joy that a house full of children brings to my heart. When I had only one child and she would melt down in some sort of screaming fit, I would flip out thinking how awful it was and woe is me for having to deal with this "situation". Now I find that even in the midst of the uncommon but occasional TRIPLE meltdown (all 3 at once) I have total peace inside and I am able to calmly deal with each child as necessary. Not because I am super mom but because I remember how meaningless my life really seemed before children. How it was all just living for me and how my only care in the world was where I would go out that night with my friends. How shallow and self-centered my life once was. Even in the midst of the "chaos" that three small children can be I LOVE it. I love that I have these little people to love and care for. I love that the "chaos' usually means they are having a wonderful time, getting messy and really enjoying the life Jimmy and I give them. I love most of all that I have three little lives to pour my life into. What an amazing and never dull life I now have the privilege of living!

Ok, so a few "house keeping" issues. My camera is broken so no new pics right now expect those I take with my Blackberry and download to Facebook. Also, Ben is rolling over!! He did it for the first time last week on his 3 month birthday. First off, I can't believe he is THREE MONTHS OLD already. Where does the time go??? Then, how is my three month old rolling over and over and over this soon. It is obvious to me that this child is a boy thru and thru. He is very physically strong, and far more active than either of our girls. I can just see him in a couple years tossing the ball back and forth with his daddy! I can't wait.... well actually I can they grow up WAY too fast as it is.

Yeah, I need to post more pictures too, but I haven't takeen any lately. Judah has started rolling from his stomach to his back, but not from back to stomach. Ben must surely be advanced, lol!! Can you believe they are almost four months old and ready for baby cereal?? Crazy!!
