We celebrated Father's Day with the husband today.
We let him pick lunch, Rosa's.
Of course we were all happy for tacos!
Later we cooked and he opened his gift.
The afternoon was spent with him doing RE stuff.
HG and I ran to Kohl's because I had a $10 coupon.
It was only right I spent it.
After searching for HG something, we decided on Miss Harper Elizabeth.
Somehow I ended up with a 3 month rather than newborn.
The set was 50% off.
With my $10 coupon, I paid $2.15.
Yes, I do believe that is a score in my book.
Miss Harper has her first Little Sister outfit.
Heck, her first outfit period.

HG wanted this silly Winnie the Pooh animal.
It was big.
I'm not a huge fan of large stuffed animals.
She wasn't taking no for an answer.
Even though she already has Harper a pink Winnie lovie.
She pitched on heck of a fit.
Oh the fit.
I finally just picked her up and carried her out.
She was acting like a wild child.
oh my!
I brought her home an put her to bed.
21/2 hours later, she was like a new loving kid.
Wow, the fits these kids have!

I feel like I've been hit by a dump truck today.
The husband asked why it wasn't a bus or something like that.
I'd gladly let him carry around all this extra weight, a head on your bladder, a nearly 3 year old who weighs 34 pounds, clean the house top to bottom, pack our bags, iron for 3 hours, 6 loads of laundry and cook dinner.
I assured him, it was a dump truck and I just missed seeing it hit me.
I hope for some R & R this next week with lots of snow cones.

We're heading East tomorrow afternoon.
It might be a few degrees cooler.
Maybe like one or two.
But, it always seems we get more rain out there.
I love sitting on the porch swing watching the rain.
HG and I spent many hours doing that.

Tomorrow marks one year.
I was 7w6d.
A year filled with ups and downs.
A year some will never understand.
A year many will always understand.
A year I wish no one ever has to go through.
A year I cried more than I ever could imagine.
I believe it has made me a stronger person.
It taught me just how valuable life really is.
It taught me how children really are a gift.
Always hug your loved ones, never take a day for granted.
God has a plan for each of us.
He needed more Angels.

  1. I am sending you a big hug! I'm sad that you had to go through that last year. I read recently about loss.....loss only makes us appreciate life even more, live it more fully. It's our wake up call to live in the moment, always. Even though loss sucks and we will always be sad!

    I am happy now that you have been blessed again with a new baby!
