two to three

The transition to three has been seamless - busy, but seamless! It's all about perspective. Bringing home our first baby was the hardest thing I have ever experienced. I can remember so much of each moment in Edward's life. Every stage recorded in my brain, monthly milestones recalled easily now, and details memorized. I didn't realize how much free time I had!
We are realistic with our expectations of each other in this season, we know our kids will grow up too quickly, and we praise God for our precious blessings!

Hope Spoken link up

I am thrilled to be attending the HopeSpoken conference in March 2014!
I am participating in the link-up today for the conference...
5 things for HopeSpoken:

- post your picture so that we can recognize you. 
- introduce yourself! 
- something that you are little timid or nervous about for the weekend
- something that you are hoping to take away from HopeSpoken
- share something fun/random about yourself

My name is Mary Liz and I am a mother of three boys now! I live in a small town in the TX hill country. I love to blog and have no real talents to blog about, just my precious family. I am a registered nurse by trade and a stay at home mom by choice. I always wanted to be a famous blogger, and I have love watching Casey become so popular. 

Something I am nervous about for the weekend of HopeSpoken is just being my self in front of strangers so that I can grow according to His plan while I am there.

I am attending with a few friends, and I hope to take away a deeper bond in Christ with those ladies. I am excited to see how our friendship will grow. And I would like to take away some new blog friends.

Fun facts: We added one more boy to our family since that picture was taken :) We live year round at a summer camp for girls. Casey and I were in each other's weddings!

Time marches on...

How do you measure time?
The tragedies and triumphs stand still as the mundane rushes through the pages of the calendar.
Today is my Dad's birthday. One of those days I would have definitely talked to him. 
That's what makes the day hard. 
Wishing to wish him a simple happy birthday over the phone. Maybe even facetime these days. 
I love everything about each of these photos.
In the cockpit of a plane, porch sitting, daddy-daughter moments, the scene with my big bros. I am so tiny and getting juice in a bottle!! LOL. 
But it makes me smile to think that our life will look like that in 12 days. 
The mirrored parts of our lives bring comfort and a sense of closeness.
Happy Birthday, Dad.

don't count the days...

...make the days count!
32 days until we become a family of five.
I am counting the days until I get to see the precious face of a new son. 
A new life and a new adventure. From manageable calm to beautiful chaos.
While also trying to make the days count for these two precious best friends.
