While I was away for the whole day, John was home playing Mr. Mom to the kids. Shortly after I got home, John told Ayla to show me pictures of what they had for breakfast. This is what I saw!!
Must be nice, hu? Breakfast in bed!!
What an awesome Dad, notice the DVD player so they could watch their movies!!
John had also cleaned the whole house, mopped floors and all with two loads of laundry going....AND he finished packing the Christmas decorations AND he put them all up in the attic. Wow, I am truly blessed with an amazing husband! I know I do not show or tell him nearly enough, but I do think that he is the BEST!
This next year, I hope to be a better wife, mother, friend and Christian. We stopped going to Church regularly when Ayla was diagnosed with JRA. Mostly because she was in pain and she would cry most of the time. We could not leave her in the nursery like that. Then when she finally did start feeling better around 6 months ago, she was (and still is) on medicines that compromise her immune system and we made a decision that we would keep her at home and avoid places where she could easily pick up a virus. John and I will take turns going to Church, but it is not the same. This really bothers me because I want our "whole family" to go to Church together! So I hope that we will be able to start going back to Church together as a family this year. I also need to start reading his word again and focus more on my relationship with my saviour. After all, I would be nothing or have nothing without him!
I also want to be a better wife. This past year has been a struggle for me. It has been hard getting into a routine with the two children. I am so blessed to be able to stay home and I love it and wouldn't change it for anything, but it has been the hardest thing I have ever done as well. I am a busy body, I love going places and doing things but with two little ones, I have learned that you have to do things according to their schedule. Anyway, most days I would take out my frustrations on John and for that I am sorry and I know I need to work on that!
I also would like to be more healthy. I have gained at least twenty pounds since having the babies. I am miserable, stressed out and in a bad mood most days because of it. I have joined a gym so my goal is to work out there at least three days a week and hopefully lose a little weight.
Sorry to bore you with such a long post... I am writing this at 1:00 am so I hope I am not just babbling.. oh, also before I forget, look at what Ayla got today!!
Her new big girl glasses!! Last week she completely broke the frames and so we had to get a new pair of glasses. We decided on the square frames this time and she did not have to get pieces that go around her ear. They are a light purple, so stylish!! Let's hope these hold up and last for awhile. These babies are not cheap...AT ALL... and she will need another pair(tinted)for the summer!
Happy New Year Ya'll... I hope this year brings you everything that you wish for!
