Lately, we’ve been quite busy. Turns out going from one to two children is a little overwhelming but brings GREAT joy! It’s just a little hard.

We are still in the midst of selling our house in order to continue renovations on the yellow house. We are working on Kuy’s SECOND birthday party, planning my brother’s handyman shower, and still trying to figure out a schedule that allows both children to sleep at the same time!

As we make this transition, we have made a point to cook more, to spend less money (yes, and we gained another child), and to truly recognize the values in which we want to instill in our children. I’ve found several articles in my “free” time, aka while I’m feeding the baby, that have helped us and motivated us…hope you find these inspirational, too!

Pretty Providence had a link to Ruth’s blog about kids and toys and how to eliminate unnecessary items throughout our lives. Both blogs have such powerful messages about how to focus more on relationships in our families and instilling that into our children.

What a great blog for moms of boys! The article includes so much advice for how to love your sons well!

Check back next week for pictures from Kuy’s birthday (Truck and Ball Theme!)!
