As time goes on and new blogs are posted, I know I will talk a lot about my family. So if you don’t mind, I would like to have a brag session and show off my beautiful family

This is my little Ladybug. It’s hard to believe she is going to be turning 9 and starting third grade this year. Man, that doesn’t seem possible! Ladybug is my sweet girl in every angle you view it. She is kind, generous, thoughtful and sweet natured. Don’t get me wrong, she has a little sassy-pants side to her, but lucky for us, we don’t see it all that often!
Ladybug plays fastpitch softball and she absolutely loves it! Her favorite position is catcher, although lately she has been showing interest in pitching. We’ll see which path she chooses. She is going to try soccer this fall to see if she likes that. She tends to complain about things, so it will be interesting to see her reaction when she learns soccer is a lot of running.
My crochet business My Ladybug Love Designs is named after her because is my Ladybug love!

This is our B man. Don’t let those beautiful blue eyes deceive you, he can be a handful! B man just turned 4 and my Mr. keeps saying he is in his terrible two’s. Wonder how long that is going to last…
Despite B man being a handful, he is very sweet. He is also one of the funniest kids I met. He is so funny, that he cracks himself up! All.the.time. It’s adorable to watch. He has energy like you wouldn’t believe and he always wants to be doing *something*, so relaxing on a rainy day is not his thing. He would rather try to find ways to climb a wall, or move furniture around to build an indoor jungle gym.
B man is also starting soccer this fall and he is very excited! Grandpa and grandma bought him his first shin guards, soccer ball and shorts for his birthday, so he looks like the next David Beckam.
This is our Little C. The tiny man of the group. Well, all of our kids are small, but Little C is barely on the growth chart (which is better than a couple months ago when he wasn’t on the chart!). Little C is going to give us a run for our money I think. He has been crawling since he was 4 1/2 months old. Yeah. Ask me how thrilled I was for that? I was determined to make Little C a mama’s boy and cuddle him up all the time, but he had other plans. He is into everything, but I am not complaining because that baby is HAPPY!! He is always smiling and he has the greatest open mouth smile and laugh that you can’t help but smile at him. It’s contagious. Really!
Last, but of course not least, this is my Mr. and I. I love this man more than most people think possible. We have been through A LOT in the 8 years we have been together, but it has only made us stronger. We are a great team and compliment each other in every aspect of life. Of course we aren’t perfect, but who is? We don’t always do things the way other people think or say we should, but what’s important is we do things together. As a family, and for each other. We have each other’s back and support and that’s what gets us through. He is my rock when I have needed one, and I can’t imagine getting through this crazy (in a good way) life without him.
Growing up, I always knew I wanted to be a wife and mother, but never in a million years did I dream that I would love someone as much as I love my husband and kids. They are the reason I wake up every night…
