Fighting with Jason

Jason and I often argue over who can put Blake to sleep at night. We both love to do it because it's an opportunity for affection and love from and to our son. I am able to put Blake down for a nap, so Jason feels like he should get to put him to bed.

Last night, I won! I was able to put the little man to sleep. The routine used to be: read book on mom/dad's bed, pray, rock and sing to sleep in chair in bedroom.

now it's lay down in his big boy bed, pray, and then sing to him. Hsere is the thing though, when we sing him to sleep he lays on his belly and I lay on mine. He wraps his little arm around my neck to give me a hug. I rest my cheek on his cheek and we hum together "Ti's So Sweet to Trust in Jesus" and then.....he says...mommy leave.

I miss those days of rocking him to sleep, but I do love the little hug around the neck as we sing our good night song!

Been hit

Since May, we have been hit with several difficult issues. I will stand firm and hold true to what I know in God's word to help me get through it. There are times where I feel weak and feel like will it get better, but when I read Scripture and put on worship music it all fades away. Hopefully, situations will begin to work out and things will begin to get brighter....I am thankful through it all I have God's sovereign hand upon my life and my family's life!

Exodus 14:14
The Lord will fight for you, you need only to be still!

Too much

Too much for mommy!

Blake had his first night in his big boy bed. We gave Blake our bedroom set because we got a new one. He felt so special that he got a pillow (first time sleeping with one) and he was able to sleep in "mommy and daddy's bed" He didn't get out once, not even when he woke up in the morning. Hopefully nap time will be just as smooth and the nights to come as well.

I am so proud of him, yet so sad that the crib (his old bed) is put in the what will be someday the new baby's room.

Now on our checklist we will potty train sometime this fall I think....just want to make sure before we do that the big boy bend is conquered.
