It's funny to me how the weather can affect how I feel on so many levels. If it's about to rain-no doubt I'll have a migraine. If it's a beautiful, sunny day I usually feel so joyful and blessed and energetic. Today is gorgeous as far as temperature. The wind is blowing and the leaves are falling but it is cloudy, leaving me in a rut. I dont feel good anyway. Yesterday afternoon I started feeling really achy and tired. I got indigestion terrible after lunch which I dont think I have ever experienced in my whole life. I still have it today. My lower back started hurting so bad and continued to hurt through the night. If I'm not feeling better tomorrow I think I'll go to the Dr. I've been known to have recurring UTI's but havent had one for a long time. I cant think of any other reason why I'd be feeling like this unless I just have a bug of some sort. I hate feeling bad.
Even though I wasnt feeling all too well, Jeni decided to dye my hair last night. We put small blond highlights throughout and then we added a few brown streaks as well. That is something that even in all of my at home hair dying madness I have never tried! It turned out so cute. I love love love it!
Daniel is home today and spent alot of time playing with Jake. They roller bladed, went to play tennis and just laughed alot. I was thankful for that. We played outside with the kids for awhile too, because you konw the clouds wont keep me in. haha. Daddy raked a huge pile of leaves for Braden to play in and he loved it! Currently Nora is still napping and hasnt been out to see it yet. I'm sure I'll have more pictures from that experience! But for now, here are a few pictures from our little holiday at home. It was so nice to relax and just be calm. I loved watching the kids play outside and I love to just look at how beautiful and funny they both are. That is so fulfilling to me.
My mom came over and spent some time outside with us too. Braden is such a lover boy with her and she just eats him up because of it. She laughs at him all the time and I know he brings her so much joy and peace. He is fulfilling such a purpose in his little life already and I am thankful that I am able to see it! He is enjoying learning and loving and I am so in awe of the way that he is thriving and growing! He's my little fancy pants, thats for sure!
Nora is learning to "cheese." You can kind of see the highlights in my hair here. And pay no attention to the fact that I never know how to look right at the camera. haha. And kindly consider how I am not feeling well before telling me how terrible I look here. :)
Oh, he is so beautiful and had so much fun!! I love this picture of him!
Daddy was hiding in the leaves and it scared Braden! So funny!
