I thought I was Tough

Ha Ha!!!  Well maybe not tough but been there done that.

I have handed each of my kids over for surgery at least once some more.

My baby goes in on Tuesday for a lip and nose revision and hopefully to close up a fistula just behind her gum line.  She is scheduled for a three and a half hour surgery.

Today when they called to give us the time and all the details I got a bit week in the knees a bit of a tummy ache.

I have grown quite fond of my girls little smooshy nose and I surely don't want her to think there is anything wrong with her just the way she is.  Because she is just perfect!!!
Crossing my fingers that this helps her speech.

Surgery is scheduled for 1:30 which means no food after 5:30 am.  YIKES!!  not sure how to explain that to a 5 year old with food issues.

Any soft food ideas? because we have 6-8 weeks of that.

Would love any prayers and good thoughts.

Pre School 2012

The day has finally come.  My sweet girly gets to go to preschool   school just like her big brothers.

What a HUGE difference from last year.  She ran right into her classroom almost forgetting to give me my 2 hugs and 2 kisses.  

My baby is growing up.  I LOVE the confidence. 
 I bet she is having a good time.  Now I just need to get the million things done that I have put off.
I am feeling very blessed this morning.

First Day of School 2012

It official I now have a

7th grader

 3rd grader

and a little girl who so desperately wishes she was going to school . . . next week sweet thing, just one more week and you get to go to preschool. 

I am excited to witness the stretching and growing that my kiddos do this year.

My personal goal is to do more listening and loving and less instructing and fixing.

Praying for a calm and successful school year.

posted a day late.  September 5th was the first day

She's FIVE

My baby is 5.
 My Sweet, Fiesty, Nurturing, Loving, Bossy, Smart, Strong Willed and oh so Precious girl is another year older today.
 How does time pass so quickly.

I pray pray pray that her birth mother knows how very loved this little peanut is. SO LOVED!
 So Cherished.  I marvel at just how lucky I am to be her momma and I know her daddy feels the same.

Happy Birthday my beautiful daughter.  We LOVE you.
