Moments I want to remember...

Conversations with Connor....

Connor: I told you he blows smoke out of his nose. (speaking of Nolan)
Me: What?! He doesn't blow smoke out of his nose.
Connor: Yes, he does. That's why he is brown!
Me: Connor, he's brown because that's the color God made him just like God made you Asian and mom and dad white. God is such an artist...look at all the beautiful colors He gave us in our family.
Connor: Well, he does blow smoke out of his nose.
Umm...ok?! LOL!!

Connor: (first thing every morning) Mom, is Nolan big now?
Me: Not yet, it will take awhile.
Connor: Oh, I thought he growed big last night. :)

Connor: Hey mom, when Nolan gets a little bigger he can share my underwear.
Me: Yep, when he's much bigger.
Connor: Yeah, he can borrow my underwear.

Connor: Is he awake yet? He is always sleeping. LOL!

Kyalynn Kutesies....

Kyalynn: I just love him! (Kyalynn says this many times a day)

Kyalynn: Oh, he's sleeping. Oh, be quiet. He's so tiny. I hold him?

Kyalynn is doing fabulously well with him. Before he came we were trying to prepare her and we'd ask her if she was ready for baby Nolan. She would always say (shaking her pointer finger) NO Baby Nolan! So we weren't sure how she would do when he showed up Thursday morning in her bedroom. Well, God worked it all out and she loves him, always giving him kisses and hugs and wanting to smell his hair. If he's in his playpen she stands and watches him and if she doesn't see him she'll say "where baby Nolan"?

Miss G's gushes...

Gabriella likes to help hold the bottle and loves to put her feet next to his to compare sizes. She is also a tremedous helper getting the diapers, wipes and whatever is needed. She even likes to do his diaper all by herself. :) She likes to share my lap while I'm holding him and is very gentle.
She is also the informer. When I finally get Nolan to sleep I'll run and get a quick shower. Her job is to tell me if she hears him crying or if Kyalynn or Connor need me. She stands right in the bathroom doorway telling me everything she hears. LOL!

And to think I wasted so much energy worrying if I could handle a baby with the other little ones. God is so good! He always works out ALL the details and honestly, it's Him in me that makes it work. Yesterday, I was holding Nolan (that's where he usually is) and trying to empty, move and fill their kiddy pool. Connor says to me "mommy you are strong". I said "No, Connor, mommy isn't strong, that's Jesus in me. He makes me strong". I pray for grace and His strength each morning, especially today as Nolan wanted to play from 3:30 am to 7 am this morning! LOL! Zack and Ryan are both working full time so that leaves me and the littles until evening. Rejoicing that God equips those He calls for His work! I surely could not do life without Him!!
