be forewarned. this post is very random and scattered.
first off, i blogged about my sweet friend lindsey and her family a while back (about 6 weeks or so ago). they adopted a sweet baby boy, who they named parke henry. he was born with a lot of heart issues and was only projected to live max 2 weeks. well, he lived 7 awesome weeks. he passed away this morning. i haven't spoken to lindsey but i know they are all hurting. so please, say a few prayers for the gibsons. visit their blog and leave some encouraging words. i cannot begin to imagine what they are feeling.
such a beautiful family. even more so on the inside. a true testimony of god's love and faithfulness for us all! lindsey shared this scripture on her blog yesterday...
Lord, you are my God; I will exalt you and praise your name, for in perfect faithfulness you have done wonderful things, things planned long ago. Isaiah 25:1
elle has been doing such a great job sleeping in her bed. but every once in a while we wake up to this. she slept on the couch like this for a good hour this morning while good morning america was blaring on the tv and i was getting ready for the day. she was zonked. when it comes to sleep, she is her daddy's daughter for certain. that girl is not a morning person and could stay up all night if we would let her.
i decided to sell elle's clothes in the local rhea lana's consignment sale. what a chore. this is me mid sorting, washing, and hanging. so much stuff. newborn to 24 months (only spring and summer). kind of embarrassing actually the amount of clothing elle had. hopefully i learned my lesson in the process and will be more intentional when shopping for my children in the future!
elle has been playing "baby" a lot lately. it is so annoying. sorry but it is. she calls herself "gaga" and is in 100 percent baby mode. while i was sorting through clothes the other night she really wanted to wear a onesie. its a 3-6 months. and it fit. she thought that was so funny. she also has a pull up on. she likes to pretend like pull ups are diapers and have her diaper changed.
car loaded up and ready for the sale. the only box that was consigned is the green box. the other two were clothes that we borrowed that i returned and there were two more huge tupperwares that i donated.
my rack of 150. much to my surprise, i was very sad about letting these clothes go. i got emotional when i left. pregnancy hormones are most likely to blame. but so many sweet clothes that were once elle's. everything in such good condition, should have probably kept more than i did. but we don't know if we will have more children or what gender we will have or whether they will even be born at the same time of the year as elle or harry. it was just time to purge. it was definitely bittersweet letting go.
why are my belly and butt so pointy? i can't stop looking at this picture.
and laughing at this picture. it looks so weird.
i've been sewing with a group of ladies every week. we have the best time visiting and sewing. i love the friendships that i'm developing with these sweet ladies. they were so kind and surprised myself and another one of the pregnant mommas (we are due 2 days apart) with a little shower this past monday night. caught me totally off guard. so fun and thoughtful! and harry got some great goodies!
y'all, i'm feeling so pregnant. so scattered. so lethargic. almost like i'm back in my first trimester but without nausea and with lots of uncomfortableness. i remember feeling similar when i was pregnant with elle but not this bad. maybe since i do have a toddler to keep up with i can't just sit around and rest whenever i want. i'm doing my best, trying my hardest to not wish away these last few weeks but when harry does decide to come (after 36 weeks please) i will be very ready!
