Life As We Know It

It's good to be home. It's good to do housework and clean up messes and feel so tired at the end of the day. It's good to see the girls play and cry and eat and fight and sleep. They are mine and they are healthy and happy...and that makes me happy.Jordyn is doing so great. She is pretty much back to her old self. Well, except for the constant whining. It's driving me crazy. I guess that's what happens when you get everything your heart desires for 8 days and then....things go back to the way they were. Poor kid. This lego cow has my girls utter-ly confused. Get it? Utter. Ha! They keep asking me what the pink part is...and Tessa keeps telling me to take it off.I started watching Julie's kids again today. I can't believe how much they have changed in just a few weeks. Heber is talking so much. Houston is rolling over. It's crazy! And look...Heber and Tessa almost look like they like each other, which is totally not true. These two fight like crazy.Houston is so big...I wish I would have taken a picture of him awake.Want to know what we watch ALL DAY? Can you guess?Heber is the best kid ever to put in time out. He doesn't even move a muscle. Today he was singing or something. It was so funny!Tonight we had family home evening. Shocking, I know! Jordyn loved it...Tessa just wanted me to read a book to her. It really is so nice to be home and back to "normal." In the crazy, stressful moments I'm trying hard to remind myself that this is the only place I want to be.

This is the movie we watched tonight. It's so cute. I'm so grateful for my beautiful little girls, for my knowledge that we are all children of a Heavenly Father who loves us, and for Jason...because he pushed me to be better every day.
