After several weeks of non-stop working on our new home, we are (hopefully) officially moving in this Sunday- fingers crossed! There is still so much to be done but we’re at a place that it is ready for us to be there and finish the other work day by day. Luca has been a trooper, but I think we are all ready to try and start to get back into some sort of routine (whatever that is going to look like with a half finished house). But here is to Fall and all the coziness it brings. Praying time will freeze a little bit for us to enjoy the little things while everything else is going especially fast.
Loving this diaper bag that we got from ‘‘One Duo’‘ in Khaki Green.
Today we got outside after everyone took naps and enjoyed some fresh air. Our lives are kind of all over the place right now, but it a really good way. We have lots of exciting things unfolding that I will share a little later on, and we are feeling really good about the season we are coming into. So on this little Saturday we got out and decided to stop thinking and planning for a bit and enjoy little moments like these.
Life is so crazy. But I love it. It’s kind of like wandering around lost in the woods. But it just so happens to be that you KNOW the One who made the woods. And the One who made the woods is good. And full of love. And actually just plain IS love. And all He wants is for you to love Him back.
So being lost in the woods might seem scary at first. But then you remember who is there. Love is all around. And since all He longs for is for you to love Him back, you can bet there is beautiful treasures and gifts to be found along the way.
Sometimes things might get slippery or confusing, or plain old hard and tiring as you’re walking around. But the One who is with you doesn’t leave you on your own. And maybe as you’re walking, feeling the peace of knowing you are not in this alone, maybe you will just happen to realize you weren’t ever lost in the first place. And you were right where you were supposed to be.
I got a cold a few days ago. Tried my best to keep as sanitized as possible so Luca boy wouldn’t catch it. But unfortunately baby bear caught his first ever bug. Amazed at how joyful he still always seems to be. Not only does he have a cold, but has some major teeth coming in. So for the next few days you can sure bet he is getting all the extra cuddles and hugs and kisses and love until the whole family is back up on our feet.
Luca is turning 9 months this week! It doesn’t even seem real. Life is so interesting. But it got me thinking of how quickly is first birthday is going to sneak up on me! Time to start brainstorming! I want to throw him such a fun filled little birthday party. I’ve been realizing that parenting is so much of wanting your children to “experience.” To learn, to see new things, to feel new feels, to hear beautiful new sounds, to learn new emotions, to explore all that this world has to offer. I want his first birthday to be a day for him that he just gets to “experience.” Gosh, I love birthday. They are so special. A day to celebrate the amazing human being that you are, to honor all you have come to be, and to remember how much you mean to so many of those around you. Let the brainstorming commence for this mama bear.
Much needed fresh air on this beautiful day.
