I haven't actually sat down to write a post in a while. 
I have all these posts written in my head but never have time to actually type them out. 
Having a house full of kids is certainly keeping me busy. 
I'm babysitting my friends kids a few days a week for a couple weeks so that brings the total child count in our house up to 6. 6 under 5. 
PHEW. Needless to say I've been going to bed pretty early this week. 

The weather has been pretty iffy lately but we have managed to go to the park last week and we went to The Rally in Battle Alley with our church last Sunday. The boys rode their bikes to church and it was pretty chaotic trying to get the rest of us out of the house on time. I was praying the whole way to church I wouldn't get a speeding ticket. 

I can't believe how big Ellie is getting. She is so talkative and has added quite a few words into her vocabulary. 
No no no no, No don't, mine, why, cup, up, nose, buh bye, Hi, mama/mom, dada, kitty, nuh-night...
She cracks me up, She loves playing with her cousins. I think when they move out she is going to be so bored with it just being her and I. 
Which brings me to the fever that I caught about a month ago.
The B-fever. 
No-Not Bieber Fever.
It's worse.
Baby Fever
It seems everywhere I go someone is either pregnant or has a teeny tiny newborn. Sometimes I think I am totally ready for another baby, and then sometimes I break into a cold sweat just thinking about it. 
There is a lot to consider about having another baby. 
But I guess God knows when the time is right and I just have to keep praying for His perfect timing. 
My friend Melissa just had her sweet little boy and I can't wait until Friday when I can go over and bring her dinner and snuggle her little baby. Maybe that will hold me over-for now!

I'm hoping to start keeping up with my blog more, I really like being able to look back at everything we've done and being able to see how much Ellie has grown. I can't believe it's been a year since my first post. I thought Ellie was never going to go to sleep. 
Now I truly miss those nights of snuggling and rocking her to sleep.
It's really made me realize how fast time goes. 
Oh to go back and hold my sweet newborn.

Loved reading your little update! You are right- time goes by so, so fast. I really think that this has been the fastest year of my life! Yay for Ellie and all of her new words! It's so fun when they learn something new, isn't it?

Wow, she really has gotten so big!! Why does time always seem to fly by without us really even realizing it?!
