Why a blog?

This is my first time to ever do anything like this so please bare with me. I decided to start a blog mostly for myself. I wanted to keep track of all the crazy things that go on in our house on a daily basis. I also thought this would be good for my soul and keep me smiling and laughing even when I feel defeated by my littles at the end of the day. I'm sure there are a lot of blogs out there similar to this one and it may just bore people but that's alright. This is us, me and my littles!

We officially have a 7 year old!

7 years ago I became a mother. I had dreamed of that day FOREVER!! I was that crazy little kid (Beau) that always had a baby doll on my hip or in a stroller. Pretending to be a mommy was my favorite game. I loved babies and couldn't wait till I had my own! On July 23, 2004 at 9:05 pm, that dream came true. Isabella Michal was born at a whopping 5lbs, 7 oz! She was teeny tiny and arrived on her own time, too early! She had a few complications and stayed in the NICU for 1 week. That seems to be a pattern with my girls...geez! She was everything I had hoped for and more.
Bella has always had such a tender heart and sensitive spirit. She has grown into an incredible little girl and I learn so much from her every day. She loves people and the Lord with all her heart. She will give anything to her sisters. She cares so much about animals and the world around us. She's a better person than I could ever hope to be. I'm proud to be her mama! :)
