treven and ady are 9. it honestly does not feel like that much time has gone on, and yet it does. being pregnant was miserable, it’s surprising that i didn’t go completely nuts being on bed rest for so long. i don’t remember much about the delivery, only that the doctors were discussing fear factor, and then lots and lots of pain. the next thing i remember is waking up in a different room, my mom was there, and she had pictures of the peanuts who were upstairs in the nicu. those were hard days. it is amazing what you can go through; it taught me a lot about how much strength i had within myself.
treven is my best mister man. i love his witty sarcasm. i love that he is a loner like me. i love that he likes sports and gets so into the games on television. i love when he plays catch with me, tackles someone in football, or catches a ball. he is very smart! he can build a huge lego set in a matter of hours. our basement is full of them. he loves james bond, baseball, football, wiiu, movies, and of course, legos. he has a tender little heart and tries hard to be nice to everyone. he is always opening the door for me, carrying groceries, or doing anything i need help with. he is an independent soul, and can basically take care of all his own needs now. i love t so much! i couldn’t have asked for better.
ady is a princess, in the truest sense of the word. she is so kind and considerate to other people. just a few weeks ago, she packed a huge lunch to take to school. she told us that she was taking all this food to give to her friends because she didn’t want anyone to be hungry. she is always making me cards and leaving me little notes and treats. i love our talks every night, where she tells me all about her worries. such a sweet child, she doesn’t like anyone saying mean things about her. so, we listened to a taylor swift song where the lyrics say “people throw rocks at things that shine”, i hope she remembers that when people “throw rocks”. she likes her alone time. she loves to read, read, read! she loves pretties and ellie. she passed off all of her times tables for the year (already!) she is always reading or listening to music on her kindle. her room is her haven. she has a cell phone in her room and she is always texting or calling people. i love my little pea.
out of the biggest trials, come the biggest blessings. that’s the truth! i went through hell to have those little ones, but they are what bring me the most joy and happiness in my life. i can honestly say that i listened to the spirit, they were supposed to be here, there is no doubt in my mind.
i love them both. i am happy they are healthy and strong. i am happy they are in my home. i hope that i am making heavenly father happy with the things that i teach them. i hope they will always know that i would do anything for them, that they mean the absolute world to me.
