I just wanted to add some pictures that I have taken over the past few days.
I love Instagram! Its such a perfect way to give your pictures a cool touch.
I'm really looking forward to the next few days. We are doing some major baking tomorrow and I can't wait for Christmas morning! I'll take a ton of pictures! :-)

Jenna, Avery, Colbi, Dave, and I all went over last night to keep her company.
Avery is one busy little girl! She is such a great helper too! She wanted to keep helping me with Colbi. Colbi woke up from her nap and Avery was so stinkin' cute. She'd walk over and put in her paci and then take it out of Colbi's mouth. It was hilarious!
And, I had to snap this picture this morning. Colbi is so beautiful. Maybe I'm biased because she's mine but, oh well.
She LOVES her feet. I'm thinking she is already working on her flexibility for her cheer leading years!! :-)

My daughter has been reverting back to the up every few hours at night time sleep regression I read about. And you know what, I realized yesterday how completely ridiculous it is that I let it frustrate me so.
Colbi is four months old. That's it. She is a perfectly healthy, extremely strong, beautiful little girl and I could not be more thankful for that.
God used a certain sick little boy to remind me that I should be thanking him for this precious little baby I have, instead of complaining and whining about the lack of sleep I'm getting. It's a temporary thing. And she's worth it.
I prayed this prayer today:
"God, forgive me. How selfish and petty I am being. Thank you for my beautiful, perfect daughter. Thank you for always meeting our needs. Thank you for keeping her safe. Please help me to be better and more patient. Help me to be reminded how blessed I am and in my frustration, help me to keep perspective. Forgive me Lord, for I am embarrassed and ashamed."
I know even when God does forgive us, we have to forgive ourselves.
It's funny because I never really understood when women said they felt like they mess up with their children almost daily, but now I do. Just another thing to add to our list of things to feel bad about. I'm thankful for another day to do better. For myself. For my sweet kiddo. With the forgiveness and love of God.
