Yesterday, seemed pretty average. We both went to work, I dropped off and picked Malachi up at my mom's house. We all arrived home about 1 pm. Malachi hadn't taken his nap yet (he never naps at Grammy's anymore...too many interesting things to do, I guess!!) so he played for a couple minutes and then wanted to snuggle with Daddy. After a couple minutes he said he wanted to take his nap, so we put him down. This usually signals my nap time on the couch...usually a couple hours of semi-fitful sleep while Samuel watches TV, plays a video game, or gets something quiet done around the house. But today was different. I looked at Samuel and asked him if he was tired. He said "No...why?" "Oh I just wondered if you wanted to take a nap, too." "OK, I could go for a nap" he says. We crawled into bed...no funny business...just snuggling and taking a nice peaceful, re-cooperative nap. Three hours later (yes 3!!!), Malachi woke us up and we ate dinner, played together and listened to the rain pouring down. I have to tell you, this is one of the most peaceful, relaxing days we have had in a long time. Another one to add to my favorite days list. Maybe we should try this more often!
Welcome to our little cyber-spot! Our sweet family has been split in two...four of us walk together here on earth, while 3 of our sweet babies are snuggling with our Savior. Natalie was born on March 14 and met Jesus on March 16, 2006. Her little brother, Malachi, joined us in May 2007. Our second daughter, Sapphira arrived in April 2009. Our precious 4th child, whom we named Asher, met Jesus in Febuary 2011. Our 5th sweet baby, Azra, joined her siblings in Heaven in August 2011. Baby Amira is due to arrive in March 2013. A very patient dog and a cat round out our crew. Thanks for spending time with us!
