My Kids..My Loves

Libby loves to play outside. She must get that from her dad because I only enjoy being outside if I'm getting some sun. I hate to be hot! It has been really pretty and a low humidity which makes it really nice and kind of cool (for June).

Now that Caleb is older (5 months), I am trying to entertain him more with new things. He LOVES Libby. I love to watch them play together and watch him light up when he hears her voice and sees her come in the room. He's definitely got her wrapped around his soon as she walks away he'll yell for her to come back, and of course, she always does and says "it's ok, sister's here!"

I love being a mom and I love having more than one. I really do think it is a lot easier than just one. If my house and bank account were big enough I would have at least 5, but we would like to retire one day, so I think we'll keep it down to 3. I have been blessed beyond words and I hope I am doing a good job raising my kids. I hope I am doing what God wants me to do, even though it gets tough sometimes. I pray for their future as teenagers and adults. I am really freaked out that one day I will have teenagers! I hope I can keep the same rules about dating, cerfew, friends, etc. for each. I didn't know what to think when I found out we were having a boy. I kept that information to myself for at least 2 weeks because I needed to contemplate about it. Well, that has totally changed because I LOVE having a boy. Even the clothes got cuter than what I remembered! I can't wait to watch them grow up and see how they live their lives. I have to be patient, but I'm just so excited to see what is in store for them!

Random Thoughts

I am really looking forward to this summer. Rhett and I get to spend it together with our 2 kids(even though he's a little late getting off the ship). I have really missed him this past time he's been out. He was home this last time for 9 months because of the death of his dad and Ike. That is the longest we have been together since he graduated in 2001. It was a big adjustment to be together for that long and for most of you, that seems silly, but it was really weird for him to be here that long. He's been gone for almost 3 months and I miss having him around...especially now that I am at home with both kids and trying to stay afloat and be a single mom and take care of all the other chores that come with owning animals and a house, etc. The hardest part about him being gone right now is Libby. She's now at the age where she realizes he has been gone for a while and even though she isn't asking for him everyday like she first was, she will break down and start crying at any given moment. That breaks my heart because I have to be strong, but sometimes I do cry with her. She is a daddy's girl and he is a Libby's daddy. At least right now Caleb doesn't understand. I just hope he knows who he is when Rhett's around (they haven't seen eachother since Caleb was 2 months old). There are stages where Libby didn't know who Rhett was and freaked out whenever he came home and clung to me even more. I can't wait to be a family of FOUR again!!!

Here we go...

Ok, so I thought I would try this out. So many of my friends have a blog, but I'm just not a writer so we'll see how it goes.
