My God is still God...

...and He's holding me right now.

We found out yesterday that our baby died about five or six weeks ago.

I find myself in a place of grief that I've never been before. I've had some "God, you suck" moments, some sobbing moments, and some numb moments in the last 24 hours. It hurts, but I really am ok. Like I said, my God is still God and He loved my baby (even more than I did) from the very start.

Through my tears, I'll ask that you please pray for me and my family as we sort through the emotions of losing this precious tiny one.

Wordless Wednesday #37

I got so many compliments last week on those pictures of the girls on the beach. First of all I have to pass all of those compliments on the my husband...he's so good and getting better each time we take pictures. Secondly, I have to come clean with all of the not so good pictures. Phillip took 120 pictures that night and you saw the ten or so that were good. The rest looked like this....

Ok girls look this way...Ok, never mind. I love this one, I looks like Mara is contemplating taking out her sister.
Not sure what Mara's saying in these next pictures so if you can read lips, let me know what she's saying!
And my favorite....
Me: Ok girls, look at Daddy.
Emily: What'd she say? Show my tummy?
So that wasn't so wordless...oh well! For more Wordless Wednesday, go here or here.

Pity Party

Ok, I know ya'll are feeling sorry for me having to spend an entire week on the beach...sleeping in...napping...having fun with my girls. But getting these little ones back on a schedule is SO hard!

We were really relaxed with table manners, and just listening and obedience in general. Back to real life, and it's only 7:30 and we've already had two meltdowns and tons of tears (not my tears...yet!).

Hang in there a couple more days,'ll get better.

Ok, pity party over!

Home Again, Home Again, Jiggity Jog!

It's good to be home, but would love some advice on how to get the girls off of Eastern time and back on Central other words, not waking up before the sun!

It really is good to be home though.

Can't we stay for another week?

Or maybe forever?

Could they be any cuter walking to the beach? Mara calls the beach 'Florida', so she's been asking all week if we're going to 'Florida' today.
Three stair-steps!Three silly stair-steps!Ok, she has GOT to stop growing so fast.Becca definitely loves the sand.Could she have a bigger smile?Oh so serious.All three kind of looking in the same direction.And my very favorite picture of the three of them...Carrie

Out Cold... the lunch table.
Becca's doing so many 'big girl' things, but just when I think she's getting so big...she goes and falls asleep at lunch. Yep, she's still a baby! And a darn cute one at that. Look at those cheeks!

Reminds me of this video from about a year ago!


Yep, she's a Southern girl.

Yesterday breakfast was ready and Phillip was in the other room.

Mara: Mom, I'll go see if Daddy's ready to get on.
Me: Get on? Get on what?
Mara: Get on with breakfast.

Um, yep I think she's a Southern girl!

Fourteen-thousand, six-hundred, and eighteen...

...visitors. Three-hundred and fourteen posts. More boogers than I care to mention. But my blog is a year old. Happy Birthday, Three Girl Circus!

I remember think a year ago, "I'm not sure if I'll actually have any time to write anything...or anything to write about, but maybe I'll post some pictures once a week or something." Well, 314 posts later, you see I must have found time and content. And a new hobby too!

So where's the cake?!?
