Yesterday I learned a friend of mine is struggling and is asking her friends/family to pray for her comfort and peace in returning to live with heavenly father. She is my age 28, can you believe it. It simply made me think about the many infinite blessings I have in my life. I am so blessed and hope i am grateful enough. My whole point in sharing this is to help myself and others realize how wonderful life is. Sometimes it is easy to get caught up in the little things, to be bugged or annoyed or simply angry. Life is such an amazing gift. We only have one shot. Make each day better then the last. Help someone out. Count your blessings. Enjoy the sunsets. Love those around you.

I just have to brag for one moment. I was awakened by a cute little Taylor making so much noise in the kitchen at 5:30 am. I kept hearing the microwave open and close. And since I got 3 hours sleep last night (thanks to Myles cough and congestion, Skylers vicious Flu, and my stupid knee also Bryson is out of town) it did not even motivate me to get out of bed. When I did come down this morning I found pancakes loaded with powdered sugar I'm talking about 1/2 cup and a note. The note said "For mommy I'm sorry your knee hurts So I warmed up some waffles for you again again i am sorry your knee hurts Love Taylor." She also had Everyday Italian from the food network on the TV so I could watch my favorite show and also she helped keep Myles happy in his room while I caught up on my sleep. What a sweet heart she did not even know I was up most the night. A serious blessing.

The other day Skyler kept smelling her feet, which stunk from birth seriously have you ever heard of a baby who's feet smell after a bath thats Sky. I asked her why she kept smelling them. She replied, "they don't smell that much like ROTTEN RANCH (which technically sounded like wotten wanch for the rest of the story just insert w when sky says an r-word)." What? was my response. ROTTEN RANCH my feet usually smell a lot like ranch salad dressing that has gone rotten, but it is not that bad today. I had to chuckle. At least she isn't afraid to admit the truth.

We have had such an exciting day. Hip hip hooray Season had her baby April 18th. Little OLIVE is here. I am so happy for thier family. I can not wait to see her. Sharwan my littlest sis and I went to WICKED. Important enough that I even posted a current pic of myself. I was not sure what I was in for but I loved every second. I love looking at things in a different light. The pics of Myles are so funny. Starr and I were sitting in my family room and Starr started laughing at Myles new hair do. Taylor wanted to make him look like a professor, part and all.

I just found this pic. I know no Myles but I love my fam in it so much that I am willing to post it pregnancy body and all.

OK so I have been messing with my blog for way to many minutes. I can not figure out how to get rid of the awful colored dots on the top of the page. Any HELP? I also injured my knee. I hyper extended it on Friday last week and it is killing me. I can not wait to get back to the gym. So recently I can not get Taylor to stop reading. Big problem I know. She constantly has a book in her hand and is waking up early and not going to bed just so she can finish one more chapter. She is so academic. Bryson and I can not believe that the we have such a gifted reader, we were both the kids who struggled in kindergarten with reading.

See the terror in his face. It is as if he has no understanding that he is actually doing the rolling and not his mom making him.

Here is our little (or should I say BIG pork chop.) He is officially 4 months old. Where has the time gone? He has grown and changed in so many ways. He has been rolling over for over a month and is finally not screaming when he finds himself on his stomach. It was so bad that I have to admit I would put pillows around him to inhibit a rolling situation which would instantly turn into screaming. As of a few days ago he stopped nursing clod turkey. What's a mom to do when her baby just won't have it? I have decided I am going to enjoy my new freedom and try to deal with the immense pain I am in. Myles is a joy and blessing in our lives.
