crazy november. here we go.

and so it's been awhile.
a little silent over here.
pregnancy has kicked my little butt, in the best possible way and rearranged time and priorities.
i just don't have as many moments lately to be at the computer. nap times are spent napping (amos and i). or dishes. or spending time with the Lord. i'm much more involved this season with our home church and building some great relationships.

i love this little space, and i have lots of dreams to simplify and just speak on its pages. hopefully as i grow bigger and slow down some, there will be more time.

amos turns 2 on friday. i will share how his little birthday celebration goes, for my own cataloguing sake.

he's like a new boy every couple weeks. growing and changing. speaking and feeling and thinking. exercising his will. responding to parenting. asking about Jesus.

it's a dream. a hard work - a sanctifying work, but a dream all the same. i am convinced you never know what you were made for until you are walking in it. and that's when you breathe a great big breathe and say, "ohhhh, and this is what it is to be fully alive."

i feel that way. not always. i also feel tired, overwhelmed. sometimes like a failure. sometimes i regard my mothering more highly than i ought. it's a journey really. a journey, at the end of the day, i truly enjoy.

and so that is my little update. there is laundry to be done. party planning to finish. and moments to be siezed of sitting with my little boy and giggling at silly things like when he combines two random words and finds it hilarious.

"FLAMINGO TOMATO!" "hahahahahahahaha"

these are the golden moments. where the fun and silly side of our God shines forth in the face of a little boy.


  1. Oh I love that! Piggy Taco!! :) Joys to look forward to.

  2. This age is such a fun and challenging time. Those silly moments fill me to the brim with such happiness but the weight of responsibility of parenting seems so much heavier now. They are able to formulate questions... some that I just don't know how to answer in a way she'll understand. Her emotions are so fragile. Realizing the way I handle certain things right now can shape her for the rest of her life sits so heavy with me sometimes. But then she starts saying STINKY SOCKS and laughing hysterically and I'm brought back to the now...
