Overwhelmed.

Simply, overwhelmed. That's how I feel these days, but I wouldn't change it for the world. Though the days are hectic, I am loving my life.

As a friend of mine recently said, "no one ever told me that being a mom of two kids was gonna kick my tail". I feel the same sentiment. Emma is fully embracing being two years old. She is an energetic child who loves to do her own thing & can get quite aggressive. She wears us out every day. Even in the midst of her bundle of energy, she still is so stinkin' cute. She says and does the cutest things. I am really trying to cherish these moments, because I know they will pass quickly.

Eli continues to be a breath of fresh air to me. He still sleeps a lot, which is nice. Poor guy even gets forgotten about sometimes because he's so good.

Besides the kids keeping us busy, Matt & I worked a 49 hour week at Earth Search last week. I love being a nanny there and love the kids to death, but sometimes it's exhausting. When we have 4 babies screaming to be held or fed (with only 2 nannies) and 3 toddlers running around destroying things, it can get quite crazy. I am glad when each day ends, but I am so blessed to be able to go to work and get paid to spend time with my own children.

Then, comes the Friendship House. We come home & get to spend our evenings with 6 college girls (summer missionaries), the regular staff, and a sweet family we have. It is a blast and every evening and weekend, we never know what we are going to encounter, but it is still exhausting.

This stage of my life has been exhausting and overwhelming, but I am learning more and more about who I am and who I want to be. And it is all good.
