All in a day's work

We are smooth sailing these days, but I cannot keep up with the blog like I want - story of my life I guess. I've been thinking a lot about what I want to do in my spare time (ha!) and currently I am working on digital scrapbooking. I have done a very lousy job with traditional scrapbooking since the girls came along - finally something to scrapbook and just do not seem to enjoy it as much nor have the time, but I really like the digital stuff. With all that being said, probably won't be updating the blog as much - not too different from the past year I guess, but writing it down for myself more than anything so I don't have to feel guilty - yes, I feel guilt over not updating my blog - HILLARIOUSLY SILLY!! I am going to make a goal of updating weekly just for family and friends to keep in touch with us and I know I have some readers that enjoy reading about the crazy's called the Robertson's!

Now on to the good stuff!


1. Cleaning up more diarrhea - cloth diapers, paper diapers, bathroom rug - disgusting!!!- than I ever dreamed possible when I first became a mom - poor Addison was sick today - hoping for a healthy girl tomorrow!

2. Waking my sleeping husband who is working nights currently to help retrieve a cheerio that was misplaced in a certain someone's nostril (Addison) - I tried but it was getting farther in not coming out! Thank goodness for my pediatrician husband who came to the rescue!

3. Placing Kate's prized Mother's Day Out crafts and coloring sheets on top of the car to be forgotten about - that is until I walked in the door at home and asked her what craft they did today - oops! I quickly changed the subject.

4. Rearranging my "pantry" - a linen closet- to find a cake mix I knew I put in there somewhere but just could not find - I FOUND IT! Sorry Chris cake will be done tomorrow!

5. Reading, Singing and Rocking my sweet Addison as she cuddles up next to me - I wonder how long this will last - I hope for a long, long, long time!

6. Reading and discussing books and bible stories with Kate and singing her "special" songs before bed. Laying next to her while she drifts off to sleep thinking about how fast time has gone.

7. Remembering how blessed I am and so thankful Chris is on vacation next week - yes, I am counting the days!! One more month and the dreaded intern year is over - time truly does fly when life is crazy and full of fun!

Kate and Addison

Kate, you came into my life over three years ago. You officially gave me the title "mommy". You changed me from the moment I laid eyes on you. Kate you have taught me how to love more than I ever thought possible, not to sweat the small stuff and that laughing feels so much better than crying. Over the past three years as your mommy I have come a long way. Concerns of napping and ounces in have turned to concerns of learning numbers and letters. You bring so much color and enthusiasm to our family. You crack me up with your newest sayings and discussions with inanimate objects. You can tell quite the story and almost make a believer out of me. God has great things in store for you. I never dreamed the baby I held in my arms on April 25, 2007, would be an independent, free spirited, fun-loving little girl like you. I love you!

Addison, from the time I carried you life was full of questions. From extreme morning sickness to where I would deliever you to where would I bring you home. You rocked our world early on and continue to do so. You screamed on the way out and screamed for the first 3 months of your life - poor baby in so much pain and I did not even know. Addison you changed me as a mother. You taught me to stop and smell the roses. You gave me the opportunity to really embrace motherhood and seize the opportunities - they can go so fast. God sent you to me and I am so thankful that you changed me. I love rocking you each night as you cuddle up next to me. You are quite the little firecracker and stand your own. You are just as independent as your sister and I have a feeling parenting Kate first was to prepare us for you. You are so loved!

To my sweet girls. Motherhood is more than I ever dreamed it would be. I would be lost without you! Always remember you are the daughters of the greatest King!
