I was playing the piano yesterday and turned around to see this- my three favorite people in the whole world, and I thought to myself, "I am the luckiest person in the whole world!" I want to remember this image so that when the trials come- as they certainly will- I will remember that the Lord has blessed us in abundance, and for that I am grateful. (The only thing that would be better? If Audra would let me do her hair- any suggestions?)

They have sprinklers which all the kids LOVE. It was a lot of fun, and a great way to cool off in the heat!
Also, Claire had her 2 week appt. yesterday. She is now 8 lb 3 oz and the doctor said she is absolutely perfect (of course, we already knew that!). She does spit up a lot, but shows no other sign of GERD, so we are still watching that carefully but are hopeful she won't have that problem.

Then, Ben and Audra have been having a lot of together time. Ben has been so wonderful- he has been doing everything so that I can focus on Claire and meeting her needs. I am so grateful that he has had this time off- he has one more week and then he has to go back to work. I don't know what I will do without him!
Anyway, yesterday Ben built this "fort" for her in the backyard. She absolutely LOVED it and played there for hours. Can you find her in this picture?
Here she is:She has also been a great help with Claire believe it or not. She loves having a baby in the house- at least for now. She will help us burp Claire and then she will burp all of us- including herself. It is so cute!

We went over to her friend Tucker's house (she calles him "Tuckey"- very cute!) and they played in his ball pit and with all of his toys- they had a great time together! This afternoon I think we will have some fun mommy/Audra time and then tomorrow- everything changes! I know that she will be such a wonderful big sister- she is already excited for the baby, and I know that this is what we are supposed to be doing for our family. The Lord has blessed us, and we are grateful for this new stage of life.
For now, I am off to do something I won't be able to do again for a very, very long time: Take a nap.
