I am still so excited and humbled by samanthas confirmation this sunday. It was amazing on so many levels. I am so proud to be her mommy. The sermon was wonderful, the youth group leadership is wonderful...I could go on and on. I still cant believe I really lost it up was so moving...God moves us when we least expect it.
I am still so excited and humbled about Bo and dyslexia. Taking him to Linda has been such an amazing journey. He is going to have such a story to tell one day. It has been amazing learning myself that I am dyslexic  Again, God reveals himself yet again as He wove the perfect path for us to find her. It is unbelievable.
Baylen....seeing your weeping eyes this morning because you were hungry and wanted to go through the breakfast line again both broke my heart and make me wonder what the future holds with you and your eating...I love you and your husky self. You are so much different then the others....I love how specific you when I tell about something that happens and you say things like "Actually you added that part mom"
McRae them amount of anger that can be in that little body is amazing....yet the sweetness that over powers it melts my heart. I love taking you to story time in your superman outfit. I love when you say hey mommy. I love your smile on white hair that looks like a mushroom. I love the time we spend together. Even when you are throwing toys.

Some funny things that have happened lately...and some things that I am thankful for...
McRae has been talking up a storm and making either laugh or want to scream in the same moment. He is either hitting, biting or throwing something.....or saying something VERY funny or cute. He loves to copy his brothers every move and every word. Whether it is doing the Whip and Nae Nae, saying What are those or oh Lord....yikes I have my hands full....I love how from the back seat he will say "Hey mommy" I love that blonde hair, round face and sweet devious smile of his. I love how he says the word figures aka figers.  I love how he has the flattest bottom in the whole crew.
Baylen I love your HUGE eyes...your smartness that is blowing me say things like "I can't button my pants and I cant ask Mrs Kelly because she is teaching and I can't ask my friends because they are also tell me every detail of your day...leaving nothing talk about all the things about Mrs. Kellys class that I never heard from Bo even though he was there for two years! You love to are such a rule follower but at the same time LOVE to push the limit and argue your way thorough just about love lullabies EVERY night....
Bo...I love how you love Mrs. Linda...I love that even though you are changing and getting a little hormonal you are still my little boy that loves to cuddle, do good and be a helper....I love your passion for EVERYTHING...I love how you are such a morning person...I love your love for Piper....I love your energy....Pepper...I love how your eyes still go away when you smile...I love how everyone thinks you are the sweetest thing they have ever met...cause you really are....even though you are starting to creep into the defensive I don't know what to say or not say stage...I still have you right there with me. We are in this together. I love your heart....I love it so very much. You amaze me, make me proud and I love you more then you will ever comprehend.
I love you love to cook...I love your love for fantasy...God and your motherly nurturing ability. I love how you hang with us at night to watch cooking shows and how you have such a heart for magic and believing.

I am so proud of your kind heart. I love you love to hug...leap through a room and share your thoughts with me at night. I love that you are 12 and love princesses...dinsey...barbies and sleeping with a lovie. I love that you seem to have the perfect balance of wanting to be at home and with your friends. I love you admit when your wrong...crave to good...but don't stress too much about being perfect. I love your passion for soccer love for running and creative writing and drawing. I love that you nurture your brothers yet are very aware of the nerves they can step on too. I love your faith journey that you are creating and questions you are asking. I also love how soft your hair is

I love your dedication to baseball. I love how you stand, hold a pencil and the faces you make. I love that you love animals so deeply. I love that even when you try to lie, you can't. You work so hard at what you love and are not ashamed to admit you don't want to work hard at what you don't. I love your desire to dress up, decorate, dance, practice baseball and the list goes on. I love our jam sessions on the way to tutors, our time at night reading bible stories and your way you blow me away with how you memorize things. You eat more then anyone I know and I have no idea where you put it. I love that I have a million ideas in my mind of what you will be when you grow up..the sky is your limit

I love you have to have a lullaby sang to you at night before you go to bed. I love your long locks and your love for a crisp shirt. I love that you LOVE to color with me. I love that you love to learn and want to sound out words and read books. I love that your back pack is as big as you are. I love your little figure and how husky you are in a good way. I love that you have big eyes and make so many funny faces. I love your love for helping me cook and do creative things. I love that you are not really into the sports thing but are willing to give it a try even though you would rather just chill and snack. I love how you run.

I love how when your hair grows out it gets poofy and looks like a mushroom. I love how you say mommy all the time, really I do. I love that your still like to rock in a chair. I love that you love your passy aka piece, your cookie monster and your blankie aka night night. You could drink more milk then I can keep in the house. You love to play legos and build with figures aka figers. I love your little flat bottom and how you love to dance by bouncing up and down. I love the time we have together when everyone else is at school whether it be going to the gym, taking Nana to get her hair done or going to the grocery store. You are my little boy....please stop growing...

I love that when we were at Disney Baylen answered my question about why is Disney so awesome with "its just so magical" I love that McRae leaps into my arms off the bed in the morning with no fear that I would not catch him with a big grin to start the day. I love the joy. I love it.
