It seems like everyone in my household is flying through milestones left and right. I feel like our lives are on fast forward right now.
Friday was our 5 year wedding anniversary. Although we feel like the same people who said, “I do,” in 2004, a lot has changed. Our relationship has gotten better and better as we learn how to communicate, problem solve, and serve each other. We have evolved into a family of four somehow, and we’ve memorized every Backyardigans episode ever. EVER.
Wednesday was Allie’s 4 month birthiversary. Last Thanksgiving we were announcing her conception, and now she’s kicking, squealing, and rolling over. She weighed in at 14 lbs, 2 oz at her check up, and she’s surpassed the 2 foot mark by a quarter of an inch.
Lexi turned 2.5 a couple of weeks ago. This week she learned how to write her name, and she just said a sentence that included a 7 syllable phrase, “beautiful decorations”. Seriously? Last Halloween she was using baby words like “muk” for milk, “lalo” for water, and “deh” for yes.
All that to say, how blessed am I?
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to HIM be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
