Our new normal...

...includes lots of doctors visits for this little guy (who gained 9 ounces in about 11 days, YIPPEE!!!)

...and helping my oldest big guy stay calm when his first year of college seems a bit overwhelming....

...and helping my second big guy plan college visits and applications.....

....and helping one daughter navigate being a 12 yo girl and the 6 yo daughter not to feel lost in the middle...

....and helping this almost-5 year old little guy learn that you CAN stand still for more than 2 seconds, you CANNOT have a conversation with your sister about Pokemon during Mass, and that there ARE other things to play with in this house besides Apple electronics...

....and helping this "dress-up" obsessed 2 year old change into various princess and fairy costumes about 47 times a day...

...and trying to make sure I don't forget THIS wonderful man who makes all the above possible for me to do all day.

Lots to do.

I am incapable of doing it alone.

But as I read on someone's blog earlier today...

"I can't. God can. I'll let Him."


  1. Our God is amazing. And I love how He shines through you. Give Henry a smooch from me, such a precious (yes! he gained weight!) little(for now)boy!

  2. Carla,
    What a full and beautiful life! So happy to hear Henry is putting on weight! Thanks for keeping us updated on his progress. :)

  3. Congrats on his weight gain and your whole family. I laughed at the 5 yr old talking at Mass. My almost 5 yr old seems unable to stop talking during Mass. We are blessed with our dear husbands. I'll make sure tomorrow to thank mine.

  4. Your family is beautiful and I love your attitude! Glad Henry's gaining weight! I just love the light you are shining for God in this world!

  5. 9 oz in 11 days is awesome! your family is beautiful.

  6. You have such a beautiful blog! God bless you on your journey!!!
