Another Birthday

As you can imagine, it seems as though there is a Birthday around here quite frequently. If you have a large family, then you totally understand! Actually, four of our children have a birthday in November. Had they all come in different months, we could have covered more months on the calendar!

I think that recently turning 46 has stirred a bit of emotions in me. I really do not fear getting older, it is not anything like that. It is just that my child bearing years are fading away. I have truly hoped that I could have one more healthy pregnancy before I am all done. I know that  could still be a possibility, and I leave it all in God's hands. He know what is best for me and my family, so I totally put my trust in Him!

Another thing that is messing with my emotions is the baby of the house is now 5! How could it be?

Now if Faith was here with us, she would be 20 months old, but she is not. I so miss having a baby around here and I miss Faith so much.

Anyway, our sweet Micah is now 5. He is a very active little boy! More active than most of any of our other boys ever were. He hardly walks anywhere, he usually RUNS! He is a lot of fun and almost always has a smile for the camera. He is a bit of a handful and probably should be a lawyer someday because he will argue his case and he will argue your case for you too! I enjoy him but he does wear me out! I must admit I do enjoy when he falls asleep at night too!

Happy Birthday Micah!

This is my absolute favorite!

Can you see a theme here? He loves all things Toy Story. I was so happy to find this Slinky Dog. He really loves him!

That is all the birthdays until next month!

Hello! Thank you so much for swinging my my blog earlier today!

I completely relate to wanting one more healthy pregnancy... You have very much encouraged me this morning. I am 35 and was beginning to feel like it is never going to happen (my youngest is 7). I will keep on keeping on!
