Constant Dripping

Read this lovely and familiar verse today...

"A quarrelsome wife is like a constant dripping on a rainy day; restraining her is like restraining the wind or grasping oil with the hand." Proverbs 27:15

Eek. Good reminder!

Hey Dude

Today I was trying to get Haven to stop messing with the toilet paper in the bathroom and I said, "Hey! Dude! Stop that!" She looked at me and said, "DUDE!" Then she said dude about 4 more times. Haha. Of all the things for her to learn to say today....dude! Cracks me up.

Out-of-Style Mommy

Well, I always said that I would not "let myself go" and "stay in style" when I became a mom.  Today may have proved otherwise.....

I was looking in my closet, contemplating what I shoud wear, when I saw one of those shrug/half shirt things.  I thought, "Is this way out of style, or is it still cool?  I really have no idea.  I guess I'll just wear it since I am not going anywhere today...."

Fast forward 20 minutes.  I go into Haven's room to get her up from her nap.  The first thing she says (while pointing to my shirt) is, "What's that?" I replied, "It's Mommy's shirt!"  Then she looked at me and then my shirt and just started laughing.   Hmmm.  I guess I should take the hint from my 14 month old!

Haven's One Year pictures! Better late than never, right?

Ok, so Haven turned one on September 24th, but I wanted to share these pictures that my husband took.  Doesn't he do a great job?  I just love him!  Plus, how bad can the pictures turn out when the subject is so darn adorable?

Dear Haven,
Mommy & Daddy can't believe how fast you went from being our precious little newborn baby to, now, our little toddler!  Everyday you amaze us and fill our lives with so much joy.  We love you so much and can't imagine our life without you!
Love always,
Mommy & Daddy

Blessed in December

What a blessing today is!  It is December 1st and it is beautiful!  I look forward to going on a run with Haven and my dog, playing with Haven at the park, and feeding the ducks!  So many things that I would have never imagined doing in December!  I love being outside and I am thankful that the Lord has blessed me with another day to enjoy his creation!
