Mother's Day

I really had every intention of posting this yesterday but I just didn't get it done. We were out and about most of the day and when I was home, I didn't do much of anything.
There are days when I really can't believe that I have 4 kids!! It's so amazing to me. The thing that probably is the craziest for me is that I have a 6 year old. I keep telling myself that I'm not old enough for that but I'm obviously wrong!! I do have a 6 year old. Here is a picture of Jacob when he was maybe a week old. I'm not 100% sure but he was still so tiny. Look at that precious little face. My first born....born April 22, 2002.
Lukey, 4 year old. Nobody really thought we have more the one boy in our family. History told us that. With something like 7 generations only having one male son we really didn't think it would happen. I remember calling Papa (Ben's grandpa Abshire) to tell him that we were having another baby. I told him it was going to be a boy, but he just didn't believe me. He passed away before I could prove him wrong. My second born...December 26, 2003.Zac-Man! We really broke the "mold" with him. Not only did we have more the one son...we had three!!! Another shocker when we found out that he was a boy, although I have to say, I did think that he was a boy and not a girl. As much as I wanted a daughter I couldn't imagine my life with this boy. He is a stubborn one, that's for sure, but he has a hold of my heart. My third born...August 2, 2005.My little Princess. I don't know if I really believed that she could be a girl until she was born. I actually said to the doctor (or Ben) when she came out "is she a really a girl?" As you know from all the pictures that I put on this thing of her I really am having fun!! It's going way to fast though, she seems way too old already and she's not even a year old yet!! I'm afraid that I will probably feel that way for the rest of her life. She is my last (at least that's our plan) and I'm trying hard not to let her grow up too fast. My fourth born...June 8, 2007.
So here we are, me and my kids!! I love them all so much. I never knew I could love something or someone so much. I thank God everyday for the four little people that He put into my life. I do not deserve all these blessing but I thank Him for them all!! Now I just have to pray everyday that I raise them to love Christ and serve Him.
So now that I've talked so much about my babies...:) I need to go wipe my tears and take of them!!
Happy Mother's Day to all of you!!

Ang -
As I read through this post, I literally teared up. I am so thankful to the Lord that he has given me YOU! This life would not be complete without you. I love you more than I can put into words and I want the whole world to know it. You are an incredible mom and wife - one that I could have only dreamed of. You make our family work. Thank you for being the woman you are and for doing such an incredible job raising our kids. Thank you for your sacrafice and selflessness.

Wow, Angie - that was probably one of the most beautiful posts I've ever read! Isn't being a Mom the most wonderful blessing? Hope your Mother's Day was a memorable one.

That was such a fun post! I can't believe how big they all are! Do you remember when Jay first held Luke at the hospital, that was his first time holding a baby. Look how many time he has done it

P.s. Your husband is very sweet to say such amazing things about you, (but you are an awesome friend too).

Katy said...

Wow, I'm with Ali! That was the neatest post. It made me start thinking back to mine when they were all born! Crazy how fast time goes! And that husband of yours, how sweet! I don't even think mine knows how to get on a blog. LOL I hope you had a wonderful Mother's day. Love you lots!

I love this post. I just wrote up mine about a half hour ago and went to check everyone else's. This one is so similar to what I wrote, but times 4 haha. I was crying when I was typing mine up. Ben is such a good guy. Like Katy, I seriously doubt Chad would even be able to figure out how to get on here haha. It's nice to see how much love there is in your home, I'm glad you had a happy mother's day.cadhfin

Ok, I'm retarded, I was wondering why my word verification didn't go through last time until I saw my post and it was at the end of it.... I'm a little brain dead today!

Gee, first Angie made me cry, and then I read Ben's comment. I think I just shorted out my laptop. Anyway, since I'm your mom Ben, that makes me the most blessed. Love you all--Mom
