New Years Resolutions

I’m with the millions who list “loose weight” but it’s not on the top tippity top.

My resolutions kind of evolve as the year goes on as my challenges change. Pretty much over all of it I need to be content, happy, appreciative and patient.

Prayer and faith need to continue to be bigger in my daily walk through whatever it is I’m doing.
GOD is in control and I’m nothing more than a servant here, not any sort of boss at all.

I want my kids to learn the same things and I so make it up as I go along.

(This isn’t sounding as good as I thought it would!!)

How about I skip to what I hope are short term goals or at least more specific goals:

Get Carly potty trained.

She’s working hard at it, and I’m really trying to be patient. I’m still overwhelmed with relief on Deeder being *finally* done with diapers and just so hoping that Carly wont take as long to train as her older brother did.

For Koen I wish to continue helping him be healthy wealthy and wise.

Early to bed, early to rise equals health and weath…in the case of a baby, lots of “booby juice” <--(Deeder word for breast milk) Koen is happy, just now starting to smile for us and make those precious ah goo and uh boo sounds. Although quite prone to upper respiratory wheeziness and cough he’s healthy. And the sleeping is no problem…he does that all the time, gradually spending more of the day light hours awake.

And for Diederick:

A long term and always present challenge:
Keep him challenged and involved in an attempt to keep him out of mischief. I see already that he’s totally the role model for Carly (and no doubt, for Koen as he’s older) so keeping him in line is hugely important.

What else?
I’ve just bought more cloth diapers. I am vowing to never again by disposable. OK, I know better than to vow a thing like that. But really, I’d be quite proud of myself if I could pull that one off.
Also, I think that those of you who learned to cut hair before having kids were very wise to do so! My poor Deeder suffers regularly from my neglecting to aquire hair snipping skills.

For Daddy:

He’s on my list, but that’s none of your business. :)

    Hi, Sweetie,
    I haven’t been checking Google Reader, but am glad I did today, because Yay! you have some posts. The pictures of the kiddos are so cute. Koen is getting so bright-eyed. :)

    I like the way you blurred Cary on the potty, haha ! :) she’ll probably appreciate that when she’s older.

    “booby juice”!!!!!!! that is tooo funny! We call it “mamma milk” around here. Deed and Matthew have the same rocket ship jammies from costco! Those two sure have a lot of outfits in common! Potty trianing Karly already?! Wait. How many months old is she?! I think I started Matthew at 22 months. I was super eager to dooooo that though. Not so much this time around. I am wating until after #3 is born (good thinking, right!?) and it’s summer and the boys are nakey in the back yard putting out fires and shooting things with their pee. Austin will be 24 months then. Holy smokes! Life is going by so quickly!!!!
