Jenna

She’s bouncy, she’s bubbly, she’s endless delight,

She’s feisty, she’s bossy, She’ll put up a fight,

She’s nose rubs and warm hugs, and laughter & love,

She’s kisses and snuggles,

Our gift from above.

She’s sighs and frustrations, and sometimes tears,

She’s giggles and sunshine,

A beautiful 3 yrs.

Our little lady…jenna collage“This photo session was all fun and games until you asked me to sit still and smile. You get that, don’t you? You should know me by now! :)” ย ย  I’m guessing those were the thoughts going through her adorable little head. 3 going on 13. Help me please ๐Ÿ˜‰ I got wallets of this pose anyway, because this is the face I see rather often ๐Ÿ™‚jenna, fall 016_edited-1 ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย ย  I’m thinking big sister was holding her attention here.jenna, fall 010_edited-1That mischievous look I love.jenna, fall 009_edited-1jenna, fall 013_edited-1Another familiar expression of hers ๐Ÿ™‚jenna, fall 015_edited-1jenna, fall 017_edited-1Sometimes I look at her and wonder how on earth she happens to be 3!? She had her own mind from the very start. All my other babies were born late. And when I say late, I mean it ๐Ÿ™‚ Kirsten was 6 days late, Devan 11 days (pretty sure he’d still be in there if he could :)), and Tristan was 5 days late. So when #4 came along, I figured I’d be late again. I had a pattern going on. Not so, said she ๐Ÿ™‚ When I went to my midwife at 2 wks. till Dday, she informed me that I would be delivering a baby that day. I’m pretty sure my jaw hit the floor ๐Ÿ™‚ I always had false labor with my others, but I never was on bed rest for dilating too soon. But this time was different. 7 cm and I had no clue. I was very uncomfortable, and lots of contractions, but never that painful that I thought I’d be at 7!ย Well, like I said she had her own time table. I told my midwife I really needed to go to the store for some things, and she allowed me to, as long as I wasn’t getting too many painful contractions. Let’s just say, my trip to Walmart was super fast and I was a slightly stressed momma to be ๐Ÿ™‚ Needless to say, Jenna decided she liked it just fine in her mommy’s belly. Every day checkups and no change. Midwife said walk up and down the stairs, maybe that will get you going. Nope. I was milking cows, hoping all that bending and squatting would do something. No again ๐Ÿ™‚ She came at 11 days early instead of 14. I was just amazed that I had one before my due date! My labor was not quite 3 hrs. And much easier than the others. What a blessing! And because I was so sure she was a boy, I couldn’t believe my ears when I heard ” It’s a girl!”. Happy, relieved tears. She was perfect. A beautiful, dark haired princess. Our gift from God.Picture 245Happy, tired mommy. Glad to be home! Picture 247Picture 249Picture 260Picture 274Picture 267Picture 271Like I said, our little princess. I miss those days ๐Ÿ™‚ But I love her age now, too. Just wish time wouldn’t fly so fast! But it did, and here we are with a busy 3 yr. old ๐Ÿ™‚jenna, fall 018_edited-1 jenna, fall 020_edited-1 jenna, fall 021_edited-1 jenna, fall 022_edited-1 I am thankful, so thankful for the blessing of children! I think I realized a little more with each child, just how fast the time does go. And I had more appreciation for those baby days. And each milestone. So interesting to watch them grow into their own personalities. And this girl has quite a bit of personality ;)But I wouldn’t change a thing!

Are you staying warm this week? I guess that would depend where you live ๐Ÿ™‚ Here it is FRIGID. In my opinion ๐Ÿ™‚ Blessings!

  1. Yes, enjoy every precious moment! Before you know it, your little clan will all be teenagers and you will miss these carefree days! ๐Ÿ™‚
    And yes, we even had our share of cold nights and days this past week!! Tuesday didn’t get out of the 40’s and it was windy. We had 3 night’s in the low 20’s, too! ๐Ÿ˜› If it’s gonna be that cold, I wish it would snow! ๐Ÿ™‚ Wishful thinking, probably!

  2. I try not to think of those teen years, Twila ๐Ÿ™‚ They are saying tomorrow we could have a record breaking low. My body is not made for this cold ๐Ÿ˜‰
