2 Months!

Fisher is already two months! Crazy how fast time flies by!

It makes me laugh how big his head is!
I am sure he will grow into it one day soon!

Fisher at two months is smiling and babbling up a storm!
He complained for sometime about his shots.

He is sleeping about 8 hours a night!
Can I get a hallelujah!

He also loves being outside!
Nothing calms him down like be out in the fresh air!

His neck muscles are tight on his right side and so
we are doing some stretches to help losing them up.
Which is why he usually looks left. 

So glad to have this little man in our home!

We did one last summer hooray before school started 
and celebrated what would have been my mom's 62nd birthday! 

Fisher and I pretty much just hung out while Lauren, Evie and Milo 
went on water slides and swam at Cherry Hill with their cousins!

We slept in Grandpa's trailer and the next day really celebrated my mom's birthday
with a trip to Leatherby's!  My favorite is the Almond Joy Sunday with a side of caramel! 
My mom would have loved it!

Also on the 18th I was able to spend sometime with Mike.
It was good to see him and watch what a good big brother he is to Fisher.
I pray that he will be able to see what will give him true happiness 
and that he will find his path back.
We love and miss him.

Justin was off jet setting to pick Dallin up from Texas!
So glad to have Dal home and so thankful that with the help from the program 
in Texas and the med changes that he is doing so well!
There is always hope and his future is full of hope.

A Name

Fisher was given a name and a blessing on Aug 7th, by his wonderful dad!

I am so thankful to have a husband who loves the Lord and the Priesthood that 
he was given by the Lord.
He blessed Fisher to know that the Lord loves him and that he would be able to 
find his role, his purpose on the earth.

I have been thinking a lot about the Plan of Salvation.
We had a friend pass away from cancer and she left two young girls behind
and her amazing eternal companion.  With the joy of Fishers birth and the sadness
of Sheri's death, plus feeling the lose of my own mother.
It's hard not having her here to share all that Fisher is.
I would see mother and daughters shopping together, preparing for
a new little one in their families. And at times it would break my heart.
I would have to count to get control over my emotions.

I am so thankful to know the Plan!
That there is a purpose to everything.  That all this sorrow will be swallowed up 
by redeeming forces.  By my Savior, who I love with all my heart.
Because of him I have JOY, because of him I will be reunited with
loved ones who have gone on before me, because of him my family is eternal,
because of him Sheri's family will hug her once more.

The Plan of Salvation is amazingly wonderful and
truly is the Plan of Happiness!

1 in 1000

A super fun Fisher fact:
Sometime while he was in utero Fisher tied a knot in his umbilical cord!
My doctor was truly fascinated by it, I was truly fascinated with Fisher.

How could you not be instantly in love with those jowls?

Mr Blue Sky

Fisher Isaac Thompson
Mr Blue Sky!
7 lbs 15 oz, 20 inches

On June 17 2016 we welcomed Fisher into our family!
We fell instantly in love.

He is named Fisher after my Grandpa Fisher, my mother's father.
Isaac partly because I love the name and the meaning and 
partly because he is my son who we had in our old age ;)
and we waited along time for him to join our family!

His entry into the world was completely normal and insanely wonderful.
I was induced at 38 weeks, which was the only perk of having gestational diabetes,
which we jokingly called babybetes.

My labor only lasted about 6 hours and once Fisher was handed to me he
cried for a good 2 and a half hours!
I was afraid he came out with colic and for the next foreseeable future
he would be crying and I was pretty sure I would be crying right along with him. 
Luckily my fears where unfounded and he is a wonderful baby.

The night of his birth we had lots of family and friends visit,
which I loved!
My favorite was when my other kids got to meet their new brother!
Lauren thanked me for having him.
Dallin was in the hospital because his meds were getting changed
and Mike still wasn't home from his group home.
It broke my heart not having them there and the fact that my mom was missing!
I may have had a good cry about it in the early morning hours
 as I held my fresh from heaven baby boy.

Dallin meet him when he was 4 days old and Mike when he was a month.

I am so grateful to once again be a new mom!
He has healed my heart in so many ways.
He is a little piece of heaven.

Way To Go, Mom Moment!

Tonight I feel mom regret, we've all felt it.

Milo and Evie destroyed the bathroom!
Hairspray on the mirror, blush all over the sink, toilet and Milo's cheeks,
water all over the floor!
They're bigger now and so I don't feel like I have to stand guard over them!
So I sat and looked at pinterest and homes for sale, while they played mayhem and foolishness.
I quickly washed hair and scolded because I can multitask.
I cleaned the bathroom and went to change over the laundry to find wet laundry on the floor because
why wait for the dryer to be done when you can throw them on the ground and
wash what you want!
Needless to say this was the finally straw and I threw a fit!
I yelled and admonished and sent everyone to bed!
Milo and Evie asked for their bedtime stories, foolish children you get
no bedtime stories when you destroy my home!

Everyone went to bed sad, and I sadly write this post.

I am tired and drained and feel completely empty.
Which is why I flipped out and forgot what was important.
My children feel asleep with their last interaction with me yelling!
There was no scriptures or prayer and no bedtime story and no kiss.

Is it okay to destroy the bathroom?  Heck No!
Is it okay to dump out the wet laundry? Double Heck No!
Is it okay for me to flip out?  Triple Heck No!

I should have had Milo and Evie help me clean up their mess and then had them help with
something in the morning to make up for the time they cost me.
I should have called down my older ones and taught them proper laundry etiquette,
then put them in charge of making sure the wet laundry was rewashed, dried and folded.  

Instead I did all the work grudgingly and now fell even more tired, drained and empty.
Plus I added a nice helping of mom guilt!

I know how I should have handled the evening.
I'm not going to beat myself up to much over it.  I'll allow a healthy amount of guilt
to help lead me to better behavior in the future. 
I'll apologies and talk to them about what each of us should have done
and if I'm smart I'll share a quick thought on repentance and our loving Savior.

Goodnight all and here's to the morning!
Which makes everything a little nicer and clearer!
