Family Fun...

Kids can be tough! Being a parent can be really hard work and exhausting. No doubt.But they are such a gift! Here is my crew...

Reese is my little lady! She is friendly but fragile. She doesn't like being tossed around but she loves being held, at least for a few short minutes and then she wants to start crawling around. She's slow to walk but quick to explore. We'll see what that means for her in the future. She'll stare you down, looking deep into your soul, i'm nervous this will be a manipulation tactic in the future. I'm mainly nervous cause i know it will work on me every time. She is in a waving phase... as you can see in the picture today. She is beautiful and i think she will be my soft hearted, friendly little flower. But her beauty scares me... teenage years = lock & key!

Jack, well he is all boy! He can be extremely polite but watch out, he might want something. Yep, he's my little con man. I think he is going to be smart, clever and conniving. Hopefully we can channel his powers for good. I think he will be a handsome young man and hopefully that mixed with this con man tendencies doesn't equal anything criminal. He doesn't know a stranger and can hang with the boys but also can be fiercely independent. I think he will have lots of friends but a larger inner space than most because he will also be comfortable with himself. He gives great high fives and even better hugs!

Being a dad is a huge gift from God! I could write much longer paragraphs about each of my little loves. They are amazing and i love dreaming about what they will be someday! And i love even more enjoying today! Some people fight for years, spend their fortunes, cross air and sea to live lives of parenthood. For others, it happens before you want it to. But i believe for everybody, not matter how it happens... it's truly a gift from God. Don't take it for granted. Not everybody gets this gift. Take it with gratitude and be fully present every minute! That's really hard as well but i want to try!
