* She's 4 Months Old! *

We have been so busy lately that yesterday as I was picking the kids up from Grammy's, I remembered that Emery was 4 months old! Shame on me! 4 months ago, we went from a family of 3 to a family of 4 and we haven't looked back since. Trey doesn't realize it, but he has met his match. Emery is a girl who knows what she wants, and will get it. It only took her 2 months, but she has become quite the sleeper. She is in bed most nights by 7, and we generally have to wake her up at 6 when it's time for us to go to work. How Joe and I were blessed with two of the best sleepers, I have no idea...but it rocks. I know I posted this picture already, but she's too cute not to post it again...


On another note...I am officially disappointed in myself. With two kids, and a rock-star FB coach for a husband, it is so easy to take things for granted. I complain about not seeing Joe enough, I complain that Trey can be such a handful, and the list goes on. I know that I am so blessed with my family, and my 2 happy, healthy kids. I haven't vocalized my complaining lately, because last month I posted about staying positive. I've tried to be positive on the outside, but let's face it...the thoughts that roll thru my head sometimes are all BUT positive! And since this blog is my free therapy, I am vowing to try and prevent the thoughts from ever entering my head and just allowing myself to blessed with an awesome life. I am a blog stalker of many blogs, but one that I cannot stop thinking about is this special little girl, Kayleigh. I cannot imagine what her parents are going through, and the more I think about it, the more disappointed I get in myself for taking my life for granted! Please say a prayer for Kayleigh and her family tonight as she has been struggling the last day or so. The Holiday's are right around the corner and my new goal is to just soak it up and enjoy life as it comes and be thankful for EVERY day that I have with my family and friends.

Today I feel like being curious. I have 'stalked' so many blogs it's not even funny. It is simply ridiculous how lost you can get in 'blog-land'. I can admit that I have become addicted. Like I said earlier, FREE therapy! Anyway, I sometimes wonder who that is down there on my Feedjit reader. If you're stoppin' by...I'd love to know!

It's Melanie...I tried posting a comment a few weeks ago, but I guess it didn't work.

Love your blog...I too am a blog stalker. :)
That's how I found out about Sheila. I'm so glad I did, the pictures she took are AWESOME!

Thanks girl! Glad to be FB friends too! Trey and Emery are so stinkin' CUTE!
