PS Hope and Phoebe thanks for going to dinner with me... and listening me dominate the conversation with all my mom crap:D I love you both TONS!
I realized tonight though that I had more little tender mercies... I have a Lord who is aware of my hurts and my sadness when I have to go through these ups and downs.... I have someone to talk to through it and tell Him my fears and hopes and not be told "don't worry it will happen" or "you haven't even been through what other people have" He just knows that this is hard for me. He knows that every time I see a little baby my heart aches and He has given me friends to uplift and help me along this path. He has given me a sister who has been through it who gets the ups and downs, and I totally get now why she texted all of the heart wrenching tidbits, you have to share it with someone who loves you more than you sometimes realize. I have been given wonderful blessings and need to just be patient and I am sure I will receive more. And that is Dang hard my friends. It helps to have such a beautiful boy who constantly reminds me he loves me even when he decides to act like he may have spawned from somewhere else. I have a husband who supports me and lets me cry about nothing even if it makes him nervous. I am so lucky to have what I have. And to receive tender mercies like I had last week at church to re read my patriarical blessing and see the words your children multiple times. Sometimes its really hard to see the silver lining and sometimes its so simple... I hope that I can look for the silver lining more often... so that I can be the wife and mother I am supposed to be.

I adore this child more than anything. He always makes me laugh, and reminds me that life can be pretty darn sweet.
I found the cord to the camera so I could upload this one... Possibly my fave! He looks like a child of the 80's! And thats chocolate dribble... such a good mom!

You may want to turn the sound off. But its still pretty fun to hear Leland giggling even if his parents do sound a little lame. Leland has gotten into "tackling" Brian and Brian couldn't be more excited! He keeps talking about flag football at 4 and I keep telling him no. I am not into that. But if Leland wants to try it than sure, but probably not till 5 when he can articulate his wants better. Its pretty fun to watch this interaction. Brian really is tired most of the time because of school and work and the hard schedule that he keeps so when he wants to play Leland is THRILLED! Anywho I just wanted to share:D
