Whew. It kind of feels good though... to feel like I'm learning and remembering how much I need God. And today I was reminded of how it's not even about me or my sanctification. It's about redemption and declaring the gospel. I am thankful that God still chooses to use us despite our weak, sinful natures. I am really a useless vessel that can only be used or have something to offer when Christ is in me. God is so gracious.
So, we had a shower for my little sis this past weekend. She raked in tons of good stuff and little baby "E" is going to be set :) I am so excited that Lyla will have 3 girl cousins that are the same age. I'm sure we have lots of giggles, and tears, and drama headed our way! Here is a picture I love of our bellies from the shower.

Three sisters who will have three daughters the same age :)
We are also moving Emerson to a big boy bed this weekend, so I will keep you posted on how that goes. Emerson has been a sleepyhead lately, sleeping until past 7 every morning and taking 2.5-3 hour naps every afternoon. I am convinced it is a grace of God who knows I need rest.. lol. I will try to do a post on Emerson soon, including a video of him singing if he lets me catch a good one, because this is one of his adorable new pastimes.
This sunny day makes me have the itch for spring. I am thinking I need to take down my remaining winter decorations since it feels like spring outside. Oh, and next weekend, Caleb and I have a "weekend away" even though we are staying in Fayetteville for it. Caleb's mom is going to watch the kids while we stay in a hotel and eat out and go to the movies, etc. Feeling like I deserve a break makes it that much sweeter!
