Boys, Babies and Circus Tents

Don't you love children. They are so free to do what they feel. They have no apprehensions just live life. My 5 year old was out side with me when the mail man came yesterday. He ran up to the mail man (who happened to not be our usual carrier) and gave him a big ole hug. I knew what he was up to as soon as I saw him start running. In my mind I'm thinking oh no, what is this guy going to think? I said, as he grabbed ahold of his leg and squeezed "I'm sorry he is a huger" Wondering what the man was going to say. Usually the comments range from oh, well that was sweet or thank you, sometimes blank stares follow Ethans hugs. YES, he hugs everybody! The checkout people at the grocery store get the most, but what the mail carrier said was so precious "He looked at me and smiled and said you know I needed a hug today!" How blessed my heart was. The Father showed me that this is how we are supposed to show love to others. Not by running up to them and hugging and kissing their leg, but by not questioning or deciding to show love to someone on the basis of how we think their reaction will be. Children truly are angels from heaven!

I thought I would post a picture of my boys as they don't seem to get much air time, sense Eve came on the set ;-) So here's my little men!

I can't believe I am half way through with this pregnancy! I can't wait to meet my new little one. She/He has been moving around for a few weeks now. This past week I have been able to feel the kicks from the outside. ;-) Such a great time. I am not so huge that I am miserable and the morning sickness is gone! But I am getting big!

And I cant leave yall without a picture of my latest dress for Eve. I know enough already ;-) This one I sewed on Sunday and Devon my oldest said, "Mom, it looks like a circus tent!" I said "well I'm glad you like it because I will be starting yours next." LOL....I have to admit it is a bit busy.
