I love when the Little Things Thursdays come back around each week. Thursdays help me pause to reflect upon the past week and all of the wonderful things that transpired. Even though the purpose is to delight in little things, this week we seem have more BIG things to celebrate. I hoped to write full posts on a few of them, but never managed to carve out the time to write them. Hmmm, I wonder why….
1. March 20th was a momentous day in our family. George and I celebrated our ninth wedding anniversary. We had a hearty chuckle when George thought it was our eight instead. I’m relatively certain that the hoopla of 2012 caused a mental lapse for George and a few more gray hairs. Several weeks ago, Rebecca at A Beautiful Ruckus took a poll asking fellow quad mamas how much they felt having quads aged them. I responded, “not at all”, which likely comes as a surprise (considering the strain of carrying them and how demanding caring for them is now). The truth is I do feel older, but the fact is that I am older. Every day that passes I am one day older than before and I am okay with that. George and I look so young in our wedding pictures, but we were young then, nine years younger to be exact. In our nine years of marriage, we’ve had moments of sickness and health, richer and poorer with each experience helping us to grow together. Through it all, there is no one I’d rather have at my side than George.
On March 20th the babies also celebrated their eight month birthday. I took another obligatory crib picture of them. They are really starting to fill it out! Harper is officially in nine month clothing and Rylin is in 6/9 month clothes. Sydney and Mason insist on keeping their six month wardrobe to make sure that clothing storage is a challenge for me.
2. Okay, this one is a little thing, but worthy of mention in our Big Things post. Grandaddy did not style Sydney’s hair. It was a tad chilly when we took an evening walk so she donned a bear hat. She looked like this when I removed her hat! Serious case of hat hair, I think.
3. Do you notice anything different about our recent quad feed? This is MAJOR progress at our house!
What little or big things filled your week?
