After 5 years of being a stay-at-home mom, I found the wonder of mothering slowly starting to get crowded out by the mundane feeling. I realized our world seems to surround people with the negative, and complaining about blessings seems totally acceptable. So I decided to fight against that "normalcy" and focus only on the positive. I look back to my first year as a mom when everything was new and keeping house was fun and I aim to have that attitude again. This blog is my outlet to showcase the daily miracles that surround me in my blessed life as a stay-at-home mom so that I will never forget the wonder of it all.

Big Things For Little Boys

After practicing and practicing all on his own (totally self motivated to keep up with the big kids), Kian can now "ride the pedal bike"!

He is VERY proud!!!
He should be.  His legs are technically just a tad bit too short for this bike (though you can't tell that from the picture), but he figured out that if he scoots his bottom to the very front of the seat, and pushes with his toes, he can pedal!
I love how self motivated he is.  One day he decided he wanted to learn to do it, so he tried and tried, didn't get upset when it was hard, and a few days later, he got it.
Proud Mama.  :)

After a WHOLE year of anticipating losing teeth (because the dentist told Logan he would probably lose his first tooth at age 6), Logan has his FIRST loose tooth!!!!!

It was discovered at bedtime when Logan told Zac that his tooth was "broken".  Boy was Logan excited to know that it was in fact not broken, but loose!  A slight party broke out in the house at that news and everyone got to feel the loose tooth.  He is now anticipating putting it under his pillow for the tooth fairy, which means I'm off to sew up a tooth fairy pillow.
