Going 100 mph

The past couple weeks I feel like I've been going about 100 mph.  Even in my down time my head is still spinning with everything I need to or should be doing.  Breathe.  That's what I keep telling myself.  Despite the fast pace of life right now, things have been running fairly smoothly, so that's a plus :)  Although I would love to post everything I've been up to, I'm afraid time just won't allow right now.  But let me tell you briefly: we took an overnight road trip for the 1st time with two kiddos, went to 2 dinner parties, had friends over for dinner, sewed curtains, dyed our couches, installed lights, and prepped 14 new diapers for sewing.  All while keeping the house in order, waking up at 5am, adjusting to the time change, and trying to spend some quality time together.  I'm hoping to post pictures of these things at some point...

On another note, I finally uploaded some pictures onto the computer from both cameras.  I love this one of Noah smiling.
Then I realized it reminded me of a picture of Anthony.  I haven't thought they look much alike until now....
What do you think???  Noah is 9.5 weeks in his picture and Anthony is 15.5 weeks in his, but boy do they look the same.  Here's another one of Anthony at 11 weeks (one of my favorites of him).
And another of Noah at 9.5 weeks.
How fast they grow!!!  Now 2.5 years later I've not got this handsome boy loving on his baby brother.

*Sigh* Being a mommy sure is hard work, but I wouldn't trade it for anything!!!

Amazed

"How great is the love the Father has lavished upon us..." 1 John 3:1a

This morning I can be nothing but amazed by how much the Father loves me.  About an hour ago, my husband was talking with the hospital that I delivered Noah at about our bill, when nothing short of a miracle happened.  They said that our bill had been wiped clean.  That's right, 100% covered!!!  Literally thousands of dollars of debt has been erased.  We knew somehow the Lord would provide for us, we never doubted that, but never did we expect it to happen like this.  Oh what a wonderful way He chose to remind us not only of His provision, but of His amazing love for us!  I've been singing this song all morning.  I hope it reminds you of His love for you too.
