Reason # 2 is CAMRYN...Since she is now 10 the "tween" attitude will occassionally try to rear its ugly head. But for the most part Camryn is great and its still important to her that she pleases me and makes me happy! She is my little helper...probably more that she would like to be sometimes. But still she is a big help and I cant imagine how much more hectic things would be with out her to pick up some of my slack!? Something else about Camryn that makes me very happy is her desire to attend church. On days we might miss for what ever reason she is extrememly disappointed! I see a lot of myself in Camryn thru her love for friends and socializing and just her desire to enjoy life! She has an ambitious attitude that Im very proud of.
Reason # 3 is SAM...Sam brings me so much joy. He is hilarious and makes the entire family laugh constantly. I am loving being the mother of him at this age. I have learned to appreciate the fact that he is a 2 yr old and laugh at the daily mishaps instead of stressing about them like I did with Cole. I am so thankful I have been blessed with that ability...finally! Sam loves to tell me he loves me by saying " I love you too momma" and it melts my heart. He is a lover of his friends, and people, and life, and everything around him!
Reason # 4 is AVA...I love this baby girl! When she sees me she smiles as big as she can and I LOVE it! She is such a good baby and Im very thankful for that. She is pretty content just hanging out. I was excited when we found out baby # 4 was another girl. I love all things "girly"! And maybe I'm partial...but she is pretty darn cute!!!
I also have a reason # 5... JON. Jon became a parent for the first time with the birth of Sam and I have loved watching the joy of being a first time parent thru his eyes. I think it has made things even more special! He is proud of his son and adores his baby girl!
HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY 2010!!!
