Sing....sing a song...

So the title doesn't have everything to do with this post but it is the most sung song in our house at the moment...if you are Moses the words go like this: "siiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiing........soooooooooooonggggg.....
loooooooouuuuuuuud.........strooooooong
And it is usually not good enough for him to sing it alone...you have to sing along...in fact, I just overheard Moses singing it in his sleep. :) The other day, in other Moses is cute news, I found him walking around the house saying "Jesus, where are you?"...like he and Jesus were playing a game of hide and seek. :) How cute is that?
So the last couple of days Doug has been off and we have gotten a tremendous amount of things done around here...getting some bills lowered, cutting grass, laundry, cleaning, errands, doctors appointments, starting to get the nursery together and shredding. I have not shredded in months and months! So yesterday I spent a couple of chunks of time going through all of our paper work and making a huge pile to shred...then I shredded away...Moses loved it, if you can't tell from the photos above. :)
I also got all of these dollies finished up for the shop...they will be sprouting up in there all day today...
I finally taught myself how to make these sweet and fun little tissue cozies. :) Would anyone be interested in the worlds easiest tutorial?
And finally I have been wanting to make this frame for weeks...the idea has been floating around my head all this time and I finally got it done! It will be in the shop soon. :)

Ok, so I have another thought provoking question for you moms out there...and I want to hear your honest answers so you can post anonymously if you must (and I have not dropped the prayer requests, I just thought it might be better to do them sporadically)...anyway...if you have more than one child...Do you have a favorite child? And if so, how do you avoid letting that interfere with the care/love/attention/etc you give to the non favored child?

Let's hear it.... xoxo

We have three daughters and they are each so unique that you love them all equally. There were 5 yrs. between our oldest and middle daughters & I didn't think it was possible to love anything as much as I loved our firstborn but God knows exactly what he is doing and from the moment you see your next child your heart makes room for more love. It just does.

Our third daughter was a HUGE surprise as she was born in December 2007 and our other girls were 13 & 8! I thought no way!! But yet again, you look at your miracle and you can only thank God. There are no "favorites" as each one brings her own color to my rainbow & they complete me.

Congratulations on another boy! Hubby wants to "try" for a boy but I reminded him that his track record is girls :)

great question! cause i remember the overwhelming feeling of dread when my 2nd (of 3) was about to b born...i was TERRIFIED that my oldest would feel abandoned & forgotten! i read every book i could, i bought him his own 'baby' so that we could ease into the transition...i cried as i made arrangements for him to b cared for while i'd be delivering his little sister - wondering if he'd immediately feel like i'd replaced him! but none of that happened! he loved his lil sis to pieces & we found out that God truly does give u waaaay more love than u ever imagine ur heart holding! all 3 of my kiddos r so unique & original - but also share many common traits...regardless, i don't favor any over the other - at ages 8, 5 & 4, i still don't understand how i can love each of them as much as i do!!! :0)

I really do love all my children the same.

The three of them have such different and wonderful personalities and interests. It IS possible to love another child just as much as your first.

So brave to let Moses play in the shreddings. Wish I could do that. The mess holds me back. Bet he had such fun!!!

Congrats on baby boy. What's your nursery like?

I think every Mother has that same question while she is pregnant with her 2nd. I was a single Mom when I delivered my 2nd child. My son and I had basically been together for 2 yrs and he was my best friend...I got to spend thee day with him and was a waitress at night so it was perfect and we were always together. When I had my daughter I thought that there was no way it would be the same. Because I was a single Mom I ended up getting a day job and putting the children in child care...when she was only 6 weeks old, it was horrible. I would say that although I love them the same I have a different relationship with both of them. The oldest was my "baby" and we have a different connection than with my second child but she gives me something that he doesn't. I am just grateful to have them both in my life. :)

Cute cute cute stuff. You amaze me. How do you keep up the passion for this?

As for treating kids differently. Before #2 was born I really worried about it. I loved my little girl so much, how was I going to have enough love for the second child? But once he came I learned that amazingly love will multiply. And yes I treat them differently, but that is because they are different. I favor each one in different ways. In the big picture, I think it all evens out. One thing my mom told me, that some disagree with, but I really do agree with, is that you should do your best to make each child feel like they are your favorite. I think if you feel you are the "favorite" and the other child is being treated equally well, then you never look down on your sibling as being the least favored. I'm not sure if this is making any sense, but I know how I feel. Maybe not favorite per se, but definitely totally and utterly loved by my parents - who would do anything for me. :-)

I have two little ones and I love them the same in different ways. They are two totally different people and special to me in their own way. I hope this makes sense. You will experience things with you new little guy that maybe you didn't with Moses. And God can really increase your heart for more.

I have 5 children, and each one is different, but I do not love one more over the other. I interact with them differently, based on their personalities, but that doesn't mean favortism. I will get back to you when they are teenagers!!!

I love the tissue cozy, that is so adorable!

Sarah Epstein said...

I agree with what others have said - I think this is a question that all mothers have when they are pregnant with their second - How could I possibly love another child as much as this one? Am I capable? Is there enough love to go round? Luckily the answers are yes, yes, and yes! ;o)

And if your two boys are anything like mine, I have chalk and cheese - two very different little personalities to love!

I think of it like this... I love apple pie, and I love pumpkin pie. I love them equally, for different reasons. So when Thanksgiving Day comes, I just eat, and enjoy and compliment both as much as I possibly can!!!! You will do great, it will just naturally happen for both you and your husband.

Cute stuff for the shop!
