Life is a changin...

I hope I haven't lost all my readers due to the infrequency of my entries. So... now we are a family of four. Braylon is the big brother to William Douglas. William is almost one month old already and we are enjoying everyday. He is becoming more and more alert and although we thought he looked alot like Bray in the beginning we are realizing he is his own little person.

Today grandma Bonnie was here and we had a fun filled day with the boys. We went to this huge indoor park where Bray ran around everywhere. His favorite activity was chasing balls across this room that was filled with basketball hoops and an assortment of all different kinds of balls. Mike and I are really enjoying him lately. He is learning new words everyday and is quite the little attention seeker. Whenever we take a picture of Will he is right there smiling wanting to steal all the attention.
Life with two is certainly more challenging in many ways but yet it also feels more full. I am so thankful for my boys. We are learning how to do everyday life with two under two... I have learned that a little crying never hurt anyone and sometimes one or both will cry and that is ok, I have also learned how to wear Will while carrying Bray, I have learned how to load both into the car and the double stroller by myself, I have learned how to nurse Will while reading to Bray and I have learned that I need to nap in the short window of time where BOTH are sleeping. More than anything I have learned that I need to lean on Jesus to help me in the everyday moments when I am exhausted and burnt out. I am sure I will continue to learn many more lessons in the weeks and months to come.
Hope everyone is well.
