Monday night reflections

First of all, thank you so much sweet friends and mommas for your understanding and encouraging comments on my last post. I really appreciate your words, it's so nice realize we are not alone, isn't it?  Your comments were very uplifting, thanks!
Brady is becoming more and more alert everyday.  I laid him on his belly in his crib while he was awake today.  I left to fix lunch until I heard him crying on the monitor.  I found him on his back and couldn't believe that he had rolled over from his belly to his back.  Later in the day I remembered to ask Bethany and Joseph if they had rolled him over, and Bethany said, "Yeah, I went in there and he lost his paci so I rolled him over to put it back in."  Good thing I asked before I wrote it in the baby book!
Jenna is dressing herself everyday and getting a little more successful at it each time.  She is one determined little girl, she wants to do everything herself and says, "Do it myself!"  Most days she asks to wear her shiny, pink dress-up dress. I'm thinking we'll probably be shopping for a replacement when it's worn to threads!
Joseph also likes to dress up, Mamma made him a cowboy outfit and it's just what he needed to go with his gun obsession.  His collection is out. of. control. There is a gun ban at our house, no more!  He's the Sheriff around here, all day!  The imaginations run wild.  I love it!
The other day I walked in my room and found Bethany standing next to Brady's bed putting his socks back on.  I asked her why she took his socks off and she said, "Oh, I was just playing with his piggies.  You know "Go To Market."  They all love him.  How could we not?  He brings so much joy.

It's lovely to hear how your children love each other so much. And, no your not alone, you're definitely in my thoughts whenever I have a long day I think of you and know that if you can do it, so can I :o)
