Making the switch

Now that Max is here and we are officially a party of 4 - please update your bookmarks/readers to this blog:

It is currently a work in progress - so bear with me as I get myself and the blog together. I have to admit, I love being a party of 4, but I'm so attached to this little blog - it is making me a little sad to be closing this chapter. I know we are starting a new, wonderful, and exciting chapter over at Party of 4.

I hope you will all continue to follow us over there and leave comments and encouragement as I'm sure I'll need it over the next few months.

If you need a little incentive to click over there - I posted 3 new pictures of Max today. :)

Mani and Pedi

I got a pedicure a couple of weeks ago - it still looked good, so I didn't think I'd need another one before I went into labor. Yesterday, however, I stubbed one of my toes and all of the polish came off. Ugh. The one thing that can look good during labor - your toes. So, since baby brother is still "nice and floaty" I took the opportunity to get a pedicure today. I took my little buddy along with me.

I had heard of a nail salon in Toco Hills that had little kid's chairs for pedicures. So, I asked Charlotte if she wanted to go get her nails painted with me. She was pretty excited about it.

We walked in and picked out our colors. Despite my best attempts to get her to choose something non-neon, she picked neon orange.

They put her in the little chair that looked like a teddy bear and turned on a movie for her to watch. Then, I sat in the chair next to her.

She was SO GOOD! She sat there super still the entire time her toes and nails were painted. She loved soaking her feet in the water and having lotion rubbed on her legs. They only had to repaint one of her thumb nails - I thought that was pretty good for a 2.5 year old.

I love this little girl more than words can say. I am so happy we had this special time together today and I look forward to many more manicures and pedicures with her.

Conversations with Charlotte

Lately we have been listening to Veggie Tales in the car. Charlotte LOVES it and I welcome the change up from our usual CD rotation. There is one song on the CD and the refrain is "OH, how I love Jesus because he first loved me". Charlotte can't sing all of the words to all of the songs - some of them are a little complicated, but she knows this song and can sing that phrase. I'm not sure I've ever heard anything sweeter in my life than her little voice singing "OH, how I love Jesus because he first loved me".

On Wednesday we were in the car on our way to story time. That song came on and she sang it. When it was over she asked:

"Mom, when will I meet Jesus?" (She calls me "mom" now a lot - not sure how I feel about it yet)

Me : "Well, honey, none of us know for sure when we will meet Jesus."

Char : "But, I will meet Him one day?"

Me : "Yes, I hope that you will"

Char : "How will I know how to get there?"

Me : "You don't have to worry about that, He'll show you the way"

Are 2.5 year olds supposed to ask questions like this? It totally hit me off guard and threw my very emotional pregnant self into a total meltdown.

The innocence just knocks you off of your feet.
