12 days left to LOVE oregon
When we found out we were pregnant with Lily, I thought, "oh.no." 19 months apart seemed close. But what did I know? Yes it was a little rough at first, but now these two have so much fun together! (excluding 3rd pic) built in buddies! One silly thing they LOVE to do together is lay next to each other and kick their legs as fast as they can. It really doesn't matter WHERE they do this, though some of their favorite locations are on the dryer (it makes a cool noise) and the pack-n-play (mesh sides are bouncy). My heart just melts whenever I see them sharing toys or reading together. Granted, the other 40% of the time my heart is racing because of the screaming and crying...but hey, I'm just grateful for the good times!
So the other day I saw some beautiful spring flowers and bulbs at the store. I had a little pitty party for myself because even though this is one of my favorite things to do "pre-spring"...I couldn't justify the time and expense considering we're shipping off in 12 days. It got me pretty bummed about doing this whole transition thing again. I was all worked up, so much so that I even teared up when I saw the MILK had an expiration date that was longer than we were going to be around. It takes so LOOOONG to feel "normal" after a big move, and its so LOOOONG before you can restart your traditions like planting pretty pots of flowers. Boo Hoo right? Well, later on my doorbell rang. Much to my surprise sat this little tub of sunshine, along with a note from my visiting teachers! Coincidence? I think not. I am grateful for a Heavenly Father who is aware of even the smallest disappointments...and I am thankful for the committed ladies who come to see me and the wonderful Visiting Teaching program!
