What a Sweet Surprise!

HELLOOOO!  I’m back after a 5 month blogger hiatus! I miss blogging, but life’s just been so busy and filled with lots of (good) changes, so I took some time off. I want to get back into it though, because I miss looking back and watching Taylor grow up on in past posts and being able to chronicle my life.

So, yesterday I was in my bathroom getting ready and the house was awful quiet… No one was hanging on me, no whining or crying, no one was getting into my makeup drawer, no one needed anything, so I suspected SOMETHING was up. Marc went to go look for Taylor and Haden and then came running back to come get me. He said, “You’ve gotta see this! Shhhh!” So, we quietly ran to the kid’s bathroom to find Haden delicately brushing Taylor’s hair after helping her get dressed, and he was even attempting to put a bow in her hair. I almost cried! How sweet is that?!? We didn’t find them fighting over a toy, making a mess, or (play) sword fighting… Nope! He was brushing her hair and she was letting him! I wish I was able to get a picture of it. Instead of had them pose for me after running back to grab my phone…



(BTW, Haden will KILL me if he knew his picture of him in his PJs is all over the world wide web, so let’s just make that our little secret, K???)

Seeing this reminded me to thank God immediately… These are my kids! My miracle baby, Taylor, and my new step-son, Haden! How awesome is that?!

I never imagined this is what my family would look like – it’s much different that what I first envisioned when I found out I was pregnant with the Green Beans SIX LONG years ago. I just knew I wanted to be a Mom and I was open to what God had in store for me. It has been a tough road, but I so glad to be where I am today! So grateful for the blessings that surround me.
