I get caught up in what I think is important in life. having a perfect home, being a perfect mother, wife, daughter, friend. I am imperfect. I am flawed. But what I do have is love. The past few days I have felt weak in spirit. I cannot do it all. But I can love. My little two year old was up all night coughing with croup. Feeling helpless to deal with the pain and suffering of your own child is one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. He looks at me with these suffering eyes that say "do something mommy". All I can do is hold him as he cries, and now, watch him sleep on the couch. He means more to me than my heart can hold. But today it all makes sense, I know why I am here, I know what I can give. He just needs to be held, and everything else can wait.

More pictures from Boston's Baptism

Boston's Baptism

Thanks to those of you who came out for the event. A special thanks to Uncle Matt for allowing Boston to fall asleep on him after an exhausting day.

We got our Christmas tree up and decorated. Noah loved playing with the lights. Our first real Christmas tree! Last year we were in an apartment, so we had a fake one that was about 2 feet tall. I love the smell of Christmas trees. It's hard to believe we are a family of four.

Running with Babies

I finally remembered to bring my camera out on my run. Here's what I saw.

Cloth diapers. I'm looking into making the switch.

There's a tree outside my kitchen window that I often look at as I wash dishes, etc. I'm reminded by this tree that life has it's seasons. Nothing lasts forever. The tree is constantly changing, and so are we. Winter may seem cold, but it too will pass, and before we know it the tree will be blossoming. I took these pictures over the past 3 months.
