date with brenna

with lynnseys help, i have been trying to take the kids out for some one on one time. i had taken the older kids to do a few things and brenna was really feeling left out. i promised to take her to feed the ducks and geese one afternoon. she LOVED it. it is the simple things. we were probably only there for 20 minutes or so, but it was a great time for just me and her. i think she is going to have a harder time with the new baby. she has been the baby for the longer than the other two ever were. i also think she is going to be in love with and SO interested in the baby, but she is by far the most clingy. we talk about her being a big sister and not the baby anymore every day. i am praying the transition isnt to hard on her. for now... here is that sweet girl of mine.

Oh how fun. This is one thing that I want to do more of: one on one stuff. Its hard but so rewarding to both you and the child!

My two have been wanting to feed ducks so I need to find a pond like yours soon! Looks like a really fun afternoon.

And praying for Brenna as she transitions from being the baby to the big sister. I bet she'll surprise you!

Before too long, she won't even remember what life was like without new baby. She'll be a great big sis. And you're a great mama. Thinking about you in these last doubt you will have a quick one. I'm praying that it's peaceful and filled with joy. xoxo
