A little bit of boring...

Where have you been!?!? , you ask politely...
I took a few days off. I was busy being lazy, or busy being with family, or busy being with me. All options mean I was just too busy to blog...or , well, too distracted at any rate.

I have had a good week. I think Tuesday was so smooth because of all the prayers sent up for me and my family. I cannot thank all of you enough for praying. I was telling a friend last night how you might anticipate a day as being difficult, and because others do too...they pray, they send gifts, emails, texts, and because of it I usually have a good day. I just love when all the people I know let me know they are thinking of my baby girl. It warms my heart.

So Tuesday, me and Rigg got a late start. We got dressed and drove to Grandma B's house. She watched him while I went to the cemetery. It was of course muddy and windy...like it always is when I go. I read a few passages of scripture. I prayed. I thought about staying longer...but I really had to go to the bathroom. So I left. It just goes to show even though sometimes our spirit longs to do one thing...our flesh pulls us in another direction...and it was pulling me quite strongly I assure you.
While I was away, G-ma B took this delightful picture of my little man...scrumptious!

You might notice he is wrapped in a very PINK blanket...well when I was expecting Caden, I bought this lovely, warm, soft, pink blankie for G-ma B to keep at her house and wrap my sweet Caden in to snuggle her when she came over for visits...I had "Caden loves G-ma B" embroidered on it for her. So now she snuggles Rigg in Caden's blankie...like a soft warm hug from his big sis...

~enter pathetic transition now~
So I would like to send out a very lame, very belated thank you...to all who have sent gifts, cards, and other wonderful things for us, and for Rigg since his birth. I have a lovely, HUGE, stack of thank you's...that are still blank, and I fear they will remain so for awhile longer...

One thing you should know about me...I am terrible at sending thank you's. TERRIBLE! It is a wonder people keep sending me things...I have the best of intentions. I write the prettiest, most thoughtful, personal thank you's in my head...yet they never get to paper, or mailed...Oh, how I wish I was different....

So here are some beautiful flowers and cards (including thoughts and prayers) that people have sent the past few days...
The blurred roses are intentional...I kinda thought the blurred,abstractness was pretty... And because I know you are just itching to find out what I have been up to the past few days...

Picking up oodles and oodles of toys because...
the Baylor Boy is up and moving...taking the toys along for the ride...

Mountains of laundry...MOUNTAINS!!!!

Dressing the boys like twins...because I can.

taking pics of little bits sweet face

while he watches baseball with his daddy...they have also been taking in a wide variety of football games...GO COLTS!!

So as you can see...everyday life has happened upon us. It is just a little boring to the outsider, nothing exciting or worthy of story telling ...And I couldn't be more thrilled.

Yeah for boring! And regarding your confession of thank you notes, I am exactly the same! I just bought thank you's for Josie's shower, it's been about three months...uhhh can you say slacker?? It warms my heart to know people blessed you and prayers were answered this week. Love the pics... I've been wanting to see Rigg with a big smile on his face... Josie is just starting to smile and giggle. It is so awesome. Have an awesome "boring" regular and wonderful weekend. - jen

Yahoo!!! I'm so happy to hear that life is boring-just ordinary.
So happy to hear that Tuesday was a smooth day for you. There were lots of prayers and good wishes from family, friends, and from me, a complete stranger.

I want to eat Rigg's little face...I LOVE that picture of him with the white background. And I don't know why, but the pictures of he and Baylor CRACK me up.

Thank you so much for your sweet comment. I have been reading through some of your older posts and am amazed at your heart.

You have a beautiful family. My heart breaks with you over your loss of Caden and rejoices over Riggs.

Thank you for being faithful to GOD!

I just found your blog from another blog I read. You have touched my heart, your faith has inspired me. Five days before my sixth birthday (I'm 28) my baby sister died. I remember it like it was yesterday. I still love when people say her name....Elizabeth...my mom has gone on to help so many mommy's who experience the worst loss imaginable-the loss of a child. My family has lived by the mantra. "Her song will be sung if we do the singing". We still talk about her. I'm proud of her. I just wanted you to know you are singing your girls song every day, and she and your family have touched my heart.
