Some days she looks like Keagan. . . most of her mannerisms are exactly like Kinkade then we think she looks exactly like Kinkade. . other times we pull out my baby pictures and she looks like my baby pictures. We don't know who she looks like. . maybe she is the perfect combination of everyone and just looks like emery pearl!
It is has been a rough mom week. . . . being a mom is exhausting and so hard. I am really working on looking for the good in the days and in each one of my kids. Because it is so easy to be frustrated and focus on all the messes, the weeds taller than me in the backyard, my huge love handles that are sticking around, and all the constant feelings of guilt that I am not doing enough to make fantastic human beings. I have been praying a lot this week because I need his help, patience and strength to make it through each day. I have so much to be thankful for and yet some days it is hard to see it. I have been trying to make a list each day of the good I see in each of my kids and husband so I can focus on it. Here is my list today -
*I am thankful for Keagan and his huge heart. . he loves like no other. He kisses his sisters all day and is so affectionate with his family.
*I am thankful for the gift of nursing emery. . it makes me slow down and relax and just pray for all the kids and my marriage.
* I am thankful for Kinkade's layed back personality. He spends his days content and easy going. This family needs his personality.
* I am thankful for Lucia's JOY she continues to be the happiest funniest little human I have ever known. She makes us all laugh all the time. She can brighten any ones day.
* I am thankful for my husband and how supportive he is of me even when I am high maintenance like I have been.
