Worry is the opposite of Faith

"Worry is the opposite of Faith"
This is a comment that has stuck with me this week. My Pastor said these words in his sermon on Sunday and I can't seem to stop thinking about it. I don't worry....I AM A WORRIER!!! There is a difference! I worry about mundane things all the way up to really big things I have no way of controlling. I don't know how NOT to worry. I never even considered that when I worried it was like I was questioning GOD. To worry is like saying that I don't have faith in him...like I don't trust him. So my mission is to stop worrying! I know it is not going to be easy and I know without GOD I can't do it, but I trust, I believe, and I CAN do it with GOD. So stop worrying and pray with me!

Ever Just wanna Run????

Working Mamas do you ever just want to grab your purse, sneak out of you office, run to your car, race to the daycare/babysitter, grab you kids, and go home???? Not because you are having a bad day.... not because your sick......not because they are sick..... JUST TO PLAY!!!! I plan it out in my mind sometimes...but then reality sets back in and I know I would never do it. I'm too dependable...I'd feel too guilty....so here I sit...in my cubicle....planning my next attack!!!!

And here is a picture of my princess b/c no post is ever complete without a picture!

We have a crawler!!!

We have a crawler!!! She started crawling yesterday a month younger than her brother was when he started crawling. The funny thing is she WILL NOT crawl without babylegs on!!! She scooted around on the carpet for over 15 mins last night but wouldn't get on her knees until I put Babylegs on her then she was everywhere! Here is a video of her crawling for the first time.

Babywearing Is A Passion

Babywearing is a passion, its a life style, and in my opinion it is wonderful!!! I wore my first child in a leg dangler for a few weeks but it KILLED my back! Then when I was pregnant with SaraKate I was exposed to REAL babywearing and instantly fell in LOVE!!!

The first sling I bought was a bag sling (big no no!!) It was recalled within a week of my purchase! I only wore her in it once b/c it just felt wrong! She was a teeny 6lbs 14oz at a month old and I could barely see her face when she was in the sling. Once it was recalled I started searching for a better safer sling and/or wrap and I found the Sleepy Wrap. This was it this was what I was searching for here was a way to hold my baby, love my baby, and still have my hands free to hold, calm, and interact with My 3 yr old!

We were happy with our Sleepy Wrap for a while but the bigger she got and the hotter it got the more I wanted a new carrier. Again I got on the wonderful internet and started searching I decided on a Mei Tai. I carry her everywhere and anywhere in my Mei Tai and I still use my Sleepywrap especially now that it is getting colder! I HIGHLY recommend baby wearing!
