The Gift of Sisterhood

When your family is going through a host of changes some intentional and some unexpected, it’s hard not to wonder what the future will. As parents we plan and prepare as best we can but we also know that there will be situations in which you weren’t prepared for. There will be lessons learned that no teacher or book could have taught you and no study guide to help you navigate those tests life gives.

But sometimes you’re fortunate enough to have someone there — to help you navigate life, to cheer you on and to comfort you when life is being a bit unkind.

We parents like to be that for our children but I find myself so grateful that mommy and daddy aren’t the only ones alongside our Lola as she ventures through life.

“Sister” is there also.

In a world filled with such uncertainty I find myself especially thankful for moments like this:

A Fun Book Exchange

One of Baylor’s most favorite things to do is sit down and read books before bedtime. First I read to him, and then he takes over and reads them back in his best baby jibber-jabber.

Recently, a friend of mine invited us to join her and her little girl in a book exchange. Of course, we jumped at the opportunity, because there is nothing more fun that connecting with moms and babes in a new way.

She's Growing Up: 3 Things I Wish Did More of in the Last 21 Months

I’ve never been particular about the gender of my kids. I just wanted healthy children. When I got pregnant with my daughter, it seemed like everyone assumed I wanted a girl because I already had a boy. I actually didn’t, though. I just wanted a healthy child. When Jada entered our world in October of 2012, her gender was the least of my concerns. I was just thrilled that she was healthy and here.
