Last week we had a rough start. Sophia was not her usually happy self. By Wednesday she came up to me out of no where said she was sorry for being mean and she just needed more Mommy time. The weekend before she had a lot of Daddy time and not a lot of Mommy time. Then we had a busy Monday and Tuesday.
Sometimes, I forget she is only three, almost four. She acts so grown up; most of the time. After she apologized we sat down and had a heart to heart and we decided that we would make sure to always have Mommy and Sophia time. We also said we would always try to speak kindly to each other because we love each other. Whenever I am talk to my girls I try to use we, instead of you I think it helps them feel more connected.
As most of you know I always try to find the silver lining in every situation. This week really showed me how kind and caring my little Sophia really is. She made my heart melt when she came up to me on her own genuinely said she was sorry. I also realized that I need to make sure both my girls get enough Mommy time no matter what.
Even though we had a rough start to the week, this was truly a marvelous week for us. My girls truly make me a better person each and every day.
Friday was a marvelous day for us. It was my mom’s last day of being a teacher. She has retired and is going to be helping me over the next one to probably 18 years; I am just kidding (kind of). HAHA! I am so excited for her to start her next chapter of her life. She started teaching again when we (my brother, sister, and myself) were all in school. She has been back in the teaching field for about 18 years. She is young and vibrant and can’t wait to be with all of us girls. And, of course,we can’t wait to have her with us. My girls love her so much it makes me feel so much better about not being here when I am at the hospital giving birth to the twins. She is seriously the next best thing to me. 🙂 I know my girls will be taken care with as much love as I do.
This weekend was a busy weekend. Well, actually not for us girls, but it was for Daddy. It started off with swim on Saturday morning followed by priming Isabella’s new bedroom. Steve then woke up early on Sunday to start painting the ceiling before going to church. He was truly a dedicated Daddy this weekend. Sunday afternoon he was finally able to apply two coats of the purple paint we picked out for Isabella’s new big girl bedroom.
Next step building her big girl bed.
Oh and I forgot to tell you, Isabella’s new room was Steve’s old office. Poor guy has gotten kicked out and has moved his office to the basement. Oh and it is not finished. But, he is so amazing he really doesn’t complain and simply wants to do whatever is best for our family. All five of us girls are so blessed to have him in our lives. I couldn’t have picked a better man to raise our four daughters with me.
What a marvelous weekend. Little, by little we are getting ready for our twins to arrive.
Sophia and I has some wonderful Mommy and Sophia time. Sunday we went to the grocery store and snuggled on the couch. I love spending time with my big girl. I can’t believe how old she is getting. We seriously have wonderful conversations and it is truly marvelous to be with her. I am going to make sure to always make time to have alone time with each of my girls. I know it will be hard work finding the time, but I am up for the challenge and they are all worth it.
We had marvelous Mommy and Sophia time!
This morning I am on my way out the door for our weekly ultrasound. After our ultrasound I am meeting with the specialist to discuss the end (her words). Oh my! She said with the girls weight difference we need to start talking about the next several weeks and what might happen and the different outcomes. Now that we are in 30 weeks we will now begin assessing whether the twins are better inside me or outside me. I have been worried and scared since talking to her last Thursday. I am not ready for these girls to arrive. I really don’t want them to spend too much time in the NICU. I am truly scared. But it is marvelous we have made it this far. I have faith our girls are going to be okay.
