My Blessings

It's hard to put into words how I feel about my children. I am so amazed at God's love for me and that he chose me to be the mommy of these kids. They are so amazing! I know all moms feel this way, and rightfully so!

Tyanna Crystal, my 4 year old princess. She is kind and loving. It is very natural for her to want to take care of others. When I picked her up at school the other day, her teacher said that she had to keep informing Tyanna that she needed to stay in her seat and quit helping the others with there project. The teacher said this is a daily issue. And even though it is challenging for the teacher, she informed me it is always in Tyanna's heart to help others. She loves makeup and getting dressed up. Right now, she is a ballerina and cheerleader. I know that even when I am having a hard day and my patience is thin with her, she still loves me more than anything and she will always be there for me!

Tristen Manhattan, my soft hearted little man. This little boy is amazing. So different than my other children. He is very serious. His little heart breaks when he gets in trouble. Having Bradlee and Tyanna before him, I am used to lines being crossed and buttons being pushed. He doesn't really do that. He likes to make me happy even when it means obeying when he doesn't really want to. He is athletic, yes I can already tell. He has good balance and likes to climb things and jump off of stuff. He loves to watch football and has informed us that he will play football one day. He is 2, and with that has come some fits, but still nothing like big brother when he was 2.

Ashten Serenity, my joyful little girl. I say to Brad all the time that her name should have had Joy in it. She is so fun! She is always smiling, always happy, always content and I could go on forever. The nursery workers at church always tell me that she was the best, sweetest, and most fun baby in the class. I tell them thank you, but in my head I'm like, duh it's Ashten. I love her so much!!!

Bradlee Preston, my smarty pants 6 year old. My first born, which holds a special place in my heart. He is extremely smart. He can debate with adults and win. He also has a special place in his heart for me, his mommy. If he hears Brad and I disagreeing about something he will always chime in and defend me no matter what. It's really sweet. I'm sure Brad doesn't appreciate it as much. He is very outgoing and has lots of friends. We can go to a football game and he introduces himself to older kids and immediately is hanging with them as if he is there age. I'm not sure I will like that when he's 14. He's not a little kid anymore, he is growing into an amazing young man.
