March Recap

March was a really hard month. Josh worked three jobs until his last days at One8 were done. (yay new job at Fund the Nations!). He also preached I think three/four sermons. He went out of town for 2 nights. I had 4-5 sessions. I also painted portraits for our friends adoption (and raised $730! for them). And I finally got my act together and blogged our NZ trip. It was such an incredibly busy month and on top of it all both babies were sick multiple times. We spent most of our days at home nursing them back to health.

As always, these monthly recap posts of photo heavy with pics taken on my phone or posted on IG. Legooooooo

This right here is why I instagram (and instagram often). The company Chatbooks turns all your photos into little books. C loooovvvesss reading these and naming all the people in them and what they are doing. The other day he read them for a solid hour. I love that I will have these little scrapbooks for my kids to read through and see our every day life. I haven't been blogging here as often, but I instagram almost everyday. So thankful for technology and being able to preserve our photos into these little books. Not mention they are the easiest things EVER to make.

Like I said before, March was a REALLY hard month. One night I was rushing the kiddos to somewhere. I had just finished changing willow diaper. Can stopped me, grabbed my face, moved the hair out the way, and said "it's okay mama" then hugged my head and kissed me. He repeated the entire thing about 10 times. I totally cried and josh snapped a photo. It will forever be one of my most favorite memories. That little man is turning into quite the sensitive, caring boy.

Nanny had unexpected heart surgery this month (quadrupole bypass). All the uncles flew into town to be with her. One Saturday, the entire family got together for lunch and all the little cousins watched a movie in bed. Nanny's surgery went great and she is on the mend!
