wanted to read some meaningful conversation, so I thought I'd try to appease :)
For some, the holiday season is the most stressful time of year. For me, it's usually the most wonderful time of the year! I love being "forced" to think of others and how my family can bless others. This year I am thinking of making a kindness activity advent calendar. The girls like to make and do for others and I think it would be good to encourage that spirit.
What are some things you like to do for others?
What would you like to have done for you?
Just so you know...I am a lurker and a very occasional commentor :) No, I have not abandoned you for Facebook. My stint there has ended. You can still find regular updates on my family's life at http://musingsofmalonemom.blogspot.com Feel free to visit!
Check it out!
I'm just coming to the realization that we have approximately 92 days left before we have another little one joining our family...are we ready for this?! 1st issue: Once again, we are settled on a boy's name, but are struggling with a girl's name. Well, I am struggling, Adam likes a couple, but I just don't think any of them quite fit. 2nd issue: I haven't even tried to move Chloe into a toddler bed yet. She likes her crib and usually sleeps well (last night was a BIG exception to that rule!) and doesn't try to climb out. I feel like it's one of those " if it's not broken, don't fix it" situations. 3rd issue: I'm REALLY loving getting to sleep through the night most nights and oh, how that will change :)
In other news...
My little garden has given us a bountiful supply of cherry tomatoes, serrano peppers, and cucumbers. My big tomato plants have not been plentiful thus far :( Gotten a few, but not near as many as I would like.
Chloe and I have been enjoying the outside even though it has been SO HOT! We go out in the mornings most of the time now, rather than the afternoon and she likes to stay out until her hair is so wet from sweat that she looks like she has had a bath.
I think Chloe is having a developmental leap...she is talking ALL. THE. TIME. and I can understand more and more. Lots of times, she will try to repeat what I say. She sits in the floor with a book and reads to herself and her favorite doll baby. She "helps" us cook, empty the dishwasher, clean up her toys.
All is all, we are enjoying the good life God has blessed us with!
