Bad Blogger

I can't believe how bad I've been lately. Actually - I can - we've been really busy!!

Friday night, Alex went with me to Bunko. :) Poor guy!! He was wonderful (as usual!)

Saturday we went swimming with Michelle, her three kids, Tami, and two of her four kids. Alex had fun, again. Michelle, her kids, Alex and I (and Megan) then went to visit our friend Cindy's house (Megan's mom) to take Megan back home (she spent the night with Sarah Friday night). We miss Cindy!! Her family moved a little further away recently to be closer to Gary's job. We had a great time. (It was my first time to see their new house)

Here are some pictures from our day at Cindy's.

Here are "the boys." Zach (16 months), Alex (10 months), and Josh (19 months)

Here's the whole gang. Sarah (6) with Zach, Tyler (8) with Alex, and Megan (I think she's 7!!) with Josh.

I can't begin to explain the emotion I had on Saturday. As you can tell from above, the older kids are close in age. Then Cindy and Michelle got pregnant while Jay and I were TTC. I was so happy for them, but it was very hard on me. I saw them getting ready to have their boys - so close in age - and here I was still with no kids. They were already doing stuff together with the older kids, and I really felt like I was going to be passed by again.

Then - 6 months to the day that Zach was born, Alex was born. And here I was - with my two good friends, watching our little men "playing together," and it was everything I had hoped for. (ok - I'm crying right now writing this)

I know that some of you understand where I'm coming from. It's moments like Saturday that make me realize what a hand God has in everything. Alex came to us at exactly the right time - exactly. We are just so blessed.
