Just One Comment
It is amazing what just one comment from a stranger can do for your confidence. I was at the gym this morning, working out and trying this new 5X5 program (for those who know what that is) and I have been lifting really hard. After I was done, this lady approached me and asked if I was training for a weight lifting competition. Boy talk about make me feel good. I told her no, but that I would love to do one. So I have been walking on water today, being more patient and positive because of one person and her comment. Plus the guy last night who commented and said that "my arms were freakin awesome" helped as well. It keeps me motivated to try harder....hopefully by Cancun I can show my brother Thor how far I have come. It was because of him that I got into weight lifting and became serious about it. So thanks Thor for your motivation and support. I love you!!!
Logan is my little helper. He is willing to do anything that I ask him. He is so loving and mild mannered. He also can get his feelings hurt easily. And boy does he love his Grandma.
Gabe to put it mildly is WILD. He has always been moving and grooving since he was born. He is our stubborn child and is very aggresive. Always thinks he is the best at everything. He is the only one he even slightly resembles mom.
Lexie is our girly girl. She loves make-up and painting her fingernails. She has a mind of her own and thinks she can do what she wants when she wants. She is always the one who tests our authority as parents. But she loves her Dad and can wiggle out of just about anything.
What a sweetheart. Very quick to smile at anyone willing to make a fool out of themselves. She has become very attached to mom and I think mom really enjoys it. She requires A LOT of attention all the time. Mom really only gets a break while she is sleeping or being entertained by someone else. What a sweet addition to our growing family.
Our 5th and final miracle. Danni has already been such a joy to our family. Even with long nights and busy days she has blessed our lives. We are so excited to see what kind of person she will grow up to be.
