the blessing and the reward

I had other plans for a post today, but I had to interrupt my plans for this undeniable baby cuteness: :D 

And if those pictures weren't enough to make you want 20 more babies {like they do me}, here's a little video:

The days are long and the nights even longer, but you know what? That's okay. :) 

I may have stretch marks, dark under eye circles and a mile of extra skin around my waist, but I'm realizing that all of these "side effects" are just temporary, really. One day this earthly body and all of its scars will die- but the souls of these precious little people will live forever and ever.

I know it will be just a blink before they'll all be grown, so for now I'm going to try to enjoy mamahood in all its glory. :) 

Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward. Psalm 127:3


  1. What a blessed mama you are! Thanks for sharing. Nothing like baby giggles to put a smile on ANYONE's face

  2. Oh my goodness... such sweet pictures!! How is he getting so big already?!

  3. Oh, I needed to hear that. This momma is definitely sporting an extra roll or two around her waist ;) It doesn't matter though does it when you have a little sweetie like that! Love that cute video :)

  4. There is no way he should be that big yet lol. He's so cute. If I wasn't dead set against having more babies....but no no more....:)

    Although they are worth every bit of loss sleep, extra weight and zombie like days.

  5. Absolutely enjoyed the pictures of Zaner. He is growing so fast. You are correct - enjoy every moment of momma-hood while you can. They are only babies for a short time, kids for a short time, teens for(seems)ever, then before you know it your children are grown and leaving home, not to look back again. LOVE them while you have them.

  7. Totally not helping the fact that once we decided it was time for kid #2, I have wanted that kind NOW! lol
