I am a stay at home mom of two wonderful boys. (5yrs and 2 yrs old.) I'm a northerner living in the south. Married to my best friend for 7 years!
My desire as a wife and mommy is to use anything and everything that God's given me to be the wife and mommy God wants me to be. I lack creativity and am praying for it to become my gift! :) I want my sons to flourish and have fun being kids while they learn about God. I hope to set an example for my family/sons so that they may see and experience Christ in normal daily life.
I enjoy shopping frugally and at times I like to share my success in my couponing trips.
My goal for this blog is just to share life, what God is teaching me, and maybe to bring in some new friends so that we can share together what God is doing!
Please join me as I take this journey of spiritual growth, mommyhood, marriage, frugal shopping, and all that entails, and maybe we can accomplish something together!
Feel free to comment! We all love comments!
My son Lincoln. So much fun! He just turned 3 months yesterday. I can't believe how fast time flies! Thanks mom and Brooke for the "3 month" Birthday wish! Lincoln's favorite things are: Daddy, his pooh blankie/toy, watching tv, falling asleep with daddy, meal time, smiling, mornings, having his nose or paci rubbed while falling asleep, and sucking on his fingers. He does not like his little "Jeep" rocker that much anymore. (sorry mom) He usually likes to be left alone when he's sleepy. Except when he's over tired, then we have to put him to sleep. Mornings seem to be his favorite time of day. He's very happy around 8am after his second feeding. Sometimes he gets to rest for a while with mommy and daddy. (We aren't morning people) Bed time is usually around 10-10:30pm. He'll sleep till 5 or 6am. Mommy loves it when he sleeps till 7 or 8am. Daddy thinks that Lincoln is like mommy, cries like Aunt Brooke, and even looks like Grandpa VanLaanen sometimes. I see Grandpa Dana in him sometimes. (he has that same upper lip!) So that's a lil bit about Lincoln. This week has been a lil bit of a challenge. His eating schedule is a lil off, and he seems to be a bit more fussy. I wonder if he's beginning to start teething? He's been sucking on his fingers and other things and drooling quite a bit. When do babies start teething?
Joe's been working on his drawings. And I think he just finished one of his best yet. Check out his blog or website. I need to try and upload a video of Licoln talking. I don't have the time now. So...I'll do that later.
