Ellis Update



Just wanted to give a short update on what's going on. Two weeks until we'll be making our big move. The packing is coming along. I don't feel very stressed about it which means I'm probably forgetting something pretty big but I tend to prefer blissfully ignorant. The girls are doing just great. Emma has recently learned to tie her shoes and she already knows our new address. I asked her if she was nervous about moving to a new place and going to a new school. Her reply, "No, I like meeting new people, I like change". I pray that she keeps that confidence. I think Chloe will be just fine as long as she has her bed and the three of us. She is getting around way too well and has way better fine motor skills than a kid her age should have. That along with packing makes for an interesting combination. I regularly fish tiny objects out of her mouth. Emma is quite good at it too. I run the vacuum several times a day but still can't seem to keep everything up. So far, it has been things that could have made it through very easily. And, I will quit talking about that because I could see this subject very easily reminding you of the name of my blog.

I had wanted to write a sentimental post to our moms for Mother's Day telling my mom that every time I make a decision with my girls, I think about what she would do and how I'm so thankful that I know I have her support on every move and because of her, I know how to love and be loved.... I wanted to tell Lynn about how sometimes when I see Adam holding one of our little girls hands, I think about the little hand that she once held. That I know that she loved and nurtured him and prayed and prayed all in anticipation of the life we're living today. I want to thank her for preparing him for us. But, my mind is so in methodical get it done mode that I can't seem to be more reflective than what I've just told you. I have a hard time having an appointment with a sentimental thought to get something written for a specific date. So, I will just say to you both. I'm so thankful for the blessing that God has given me in the both of you. I know that I am truly blessed to have not one but two mother's that support and love me. You both have done and are currently doing so much for us. I want you to know that I'm very aware of that and am forever grateful!

Anyway, this will probably be the last post that I make for a while. I am snapping pictures along the way and I'll have to make a very large update post once we get there.

I know many of you are praying for us and I want to thank you for that and ask you to keep it up!

To all of those wonderful mothers out there. Happy Mother's Day!

Blessings
