{daughters}


Today has already been one of the good kind!! We had church a little later today, so the three of us just got to hang out and relax for awhile this morning - where normally Sunday mornings are a bit chaotic rushing out the door. I was humming "easy like Sunday morning" all morning!!  Then church. Wow. You know when you just feel like you are right on track - like God is speaking right at you!?! Our vision for the year couldn't have matched up better with the worship and message. It was SO encouraging. My heart was over flowing!! 

But. 

You guys!!! I have so much to do today!! 

But here I sit, sipping on Starbucks, watching my sweet Harper nap, feeling my precious Hayden kick away in my tummy. 

These moments - these moments I can't and refuse to trade for a clean kitchen or a swept floor. And let's be real - those things will get done, but just not right now! 

I asked my mom club today of anyone remembers the days when you could deep clean your house and it would last all week. Haha. It's so laughable now!! I still catch myself thinking, "oh if I do this today I won't have to tomorrow..."  Um. Yeah right. Not only tomorrow but probably 5 more times at least today!! 

Too great!! Gotta love mom life ❤️ 

So anyway. None of that is the point of this post. Haha. Go figure. 

My friend MaLyn posted the cutest quote today: "a daughter is just a little girl that grows up to be your best friend". My sweet Harper is already one of my very best friends!!! Seriously. She knows when I'm sad when no one else does. She knows when I need a hug. She can make me laugh like no other (except maybe her daddy). And she's just so fun!!! I can spend every second of every day with her and miss her if we are apart for 2seconds. 


Today we had a mommy/Harper date after church. Daddy had to go to work (have I mentioned how thankful I am for a hard working husband???!!  He makes my dreams come true on a daily basis. DAILY!). So we headed to lunch. We just had so much fun!! The bbq place by our house has kids eat free Sunday's, so it was a no brainier!! We grabbed ice cream after we ate them headed to the thrift store next door (& scored her a new pair of nikes - practically brand new - for $2!!). She fell asleep before we left the parking lot. So I grabbed a little Starbucks and now we are cuddling and just having the best day!! 

I'm so excited to have another daughter. It's no secret- I've blogged before about how I always thought I'd have a home full of boys - but God knew exactly what I needed.

  6. I have three boys followed by a little girl. We laugh and giggle and I enjoy her so much. I love my boys too but they are typical males: non emotional, hey mom, type of guys. My little girl loves to watch me do my hair, makeup, chat with me, let me come her hair, play with clothes. It is so different and I'm definitely enjoying it. We won't be adding anymore children so she'll never have the possibility of a sister but boy she will keep those brothers of hers on their toes. Congrats on adding another daughter!
