Well, I feel like I need to praise Lauren for a little bit here. She is such a big girl and a great helper these days. I have a hard time because I feel like I'm constantly getting after her for things. But in spite of me being a grouchy mom she really does some quite wonderful things! The other day I went to get my hair cut. I really didn't want to take Lauren along with me but she is soo clingy lately there was no way I was leaving her behind! I'm so thankful she was with me because she was my little babysitter the whole time for Kristen. Kristen would fuss and she'd instantly rock her in her carseat and give her her binky. I didn't even have to ask her for these things. It was just automatic for her! Also, we've always been really good about saying prayers at dinner, but lately it has been a bit more unorganized (Melissa, don't laugh!) Ok...so it's always unorganized. But anyway, We will dish up, sit down and just start eating..then it never fails, Lauren chimes in "We forgot to say a prayer!!" Cory and I are always amazed! She always is so curious and has so many questions that it gets irritating but I have to remember that I am her own "book of knowledge" at this point. I feel very proud to be her mother and to be the one who gets to teach her about the world and our Heavenly Father's plan. Hopefully I won't let her down. I feel so blessed. I love my big baby girl.
I am a wife to a wonderful husband and a mom to 2 beautiful little girls. We moved to Miami in June 2010 where Cory started his Podiatry residency. We are so proud of our new doctor!! Now we are looking forward to the new adventures living in Florida will provide!
