Elijah, almost ten years old. My firstborn, my "parenting experiment", smart, funny, very athletic and awesome at video games and the computer. Makes friends easily, loves his mom and Jesus, too.
Isabel, eight years old. My only daughter, my secondborn, my "millenium baby". She was due on December 31, 1999, the year of Y2K. Thankfully, she came 10 days early. Beautiful, intelligent, compassionate, so mature for her age it's scary, artistic, a great friend and an even better sister and daughter. Where would our family be without her?
Gabriel, three years old. The baby of the family, our "bonus baby", born to us even though we thought we were done with babies. So handsome, energetic, the jokester. Loves Hot Wheels, our puppy, playing outside with Daddy; especially loves to be with Elijah and Isabel. Currently in love with anything dinosaurs: books, figures, flashcards, movies. I love his bedtime prayer: "Dear Jesus, I wuv you, amen".
How I ever deserved these amazing children, I don't know, but I count my blessings every day. I wouldn't be the mom I am today without the help of so many people, though. God, my husband, my mom, my dad, my sisters, my mother-in-law, and my friends. So much love given to me in my lifetime, that I have plenty to shower on my babies.
Wow, feeling sentimental today...guess that's what Mother's Day is all about!
