I have been thinking a lot lately about how TRULLY blest I am. I have two BEAUTIFUL, HEALTHY, and HAPPY kids. Who adore me and I adore them. I have a hard working, handsome TEASE, I have the pleasure of calling my husband. We both have work that puts a roof over our heads, food on the table, and clothes on our backs. I have the opportunity to serve in the Primary. I love it. I love the kids and it is amazing at how quick and how strong that love came and has grown. I have the knowledge of knowing what will happen after I leave this earth. I know that I am loved and have a Savior who loved me enough to take on my sins, sorrows, and burdens. What a life I have!! Too often I think I take it for granted. Too often I over look how WONDERFUL I have it, how good my Heavenly Father has been to me.
So my resolution...
To not be so quick to anger (PATIENTS)
To love love love, speak softly
To NOT be so critical
To be GRATEFUL
To remember what it was like to be a KID
To not try to make my little ones grow up so fast
To tell Nic more often how GREAT he is!!
I am sure there could be a lot more. But as for now... I think those will keep me busy.
And of course I cannot post with out putting up some pictures and saying a little about our little ones.
Mataya is getting too smart for her own good. She keeps telling me that when Kamden starts to walk we can have another baby, but a GIRL this time. Then she asked Nic how he could get another baby in my belly? lol... OH NO!
Nic told Taya she could drive the sandrail if she could figure out how to start it. Well that took like 3 min! So nic sat beside her and helped her steer and she drove it around when we went camping with my sisters and their family (good time). Taya also LOVES to dress up and put on a show for me and Kamden. She sings her own rendention of London Bridges and There's a Hippo in my Tub, and many more. Gotta love that girl! As far as funny things she says... I need to write them down daily, because I FORGET THEM!!!
As for Kamden, he's a TANK! An older lady said to me once, "Wow he's a big little guy and you are a little thing how do you carry him around all day?" Funny thing is he really doesn't like to be held that much... He's too busy! So we have said GOOD BYE to nursing! It was a wrestling match that I gave up on cause he would never sit still long enough to eat! So he's on the bottle and LOVES his baby food!! So NO he isn't starving. We said hello to one new tooth on the bottom making a total of three and the two top are coming through. He's the smiliest kid I've ever seen. But when he is ready for a NAP he is ready. That is the only time he will just relax and let you hold him. When we went camping after trying the blanket and scooping dirt clods and rocks out of his mouth when we were packing up we put him in the back of the truck and he was in HEAVEN! I think that was the happiest he was the whole trip cause he just wanted to do his own thing and didn't want to be held!
And they still LOVE eachother. I did buy their easter outfits and I AM so excited to see them in them!!! I really can't wait!
And something that I must post about! My father-in-law takes all four of us girls on a "Daddy Daughter Date" once a year. He has for the past 3 years and it is a night I look forward to. He is a great man and I am so lucky to have the Despain's in my life! I love them so much!!
