"So promise me you'll never forget...that you aren't an accident or an incident...you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth...Flooded by emotion, overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, 'You are my child. I love you dearly.'" Max Lucado, God Thinks You're Wonderful

Stuck at home and loving it!

So my poor car has needed to be fixed for a while now.

You should get a little laugh out of the fact that we've been driving that sucker around town with duct tape on it for weeks. Make that months, we taped it before Emery arrived.

You've sunk to a new low when you resort to duct tape on a car to get around. So, we've just been giggling at ourselves every time we see the eyesore praying that soon enough it will be fixed. This week is the week, and I should be without a car at least until Friday.

Come see us if you need entertaining, we'll be here or at the pool.

For other news...we are doing great! Emery is sleeping so well at night only getting up once around 2 for a bottle then she goes right back down. She is such a sweet baby, so calm and easy. She takes great naps during the day and can stay up for almost an hour for feedings and wake time. She generally does not like to be on her belly for tummy time. I think it's because it doesn't feel to hot after eating-at least that's what she told me ;) She loves to be up on your shoulder and she raises her head up so well to look around and see everyone.
I am not sure what it is, perhaps that this munchkin is our caboose, or that we struggled with if we would even get to have 4 (the impending move), or that I thought nothing could be more perfect than our situation with KK...but my heart just can't contain all of this joy. It seriously feels like it's gonna burst.
As I held Emery in my lap to cut her nails today, I just couldn't believe her teensy, precious, dark chocolate hands...oh how I wanted her to be this color. These are the things I felt high maintenance about asking God for...I wanted Sadie to have a sibling that was darker like her. I know it sounds silly. But it happens daily that she is left out when people ask about the boys being twins or "real brothers" and is she from Africa...I just didn't want her to feel more alone in this. Thank you Jesus for answering those prayers I couldn't manage to utter. Only you know my quirky thoughts, and for some reason you obliged.
So many moments in the day I am simply overwhelmed at our God and how He has blessed us.
