Mota-Vational Quotes

  • "Life isn't about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain!"
  • "The happiest people don't always have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
  • "Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

Preston 3 years 9 months/ Kelsey 3 Months

This is my first official month as a stay at home mom! Getting to be with these kids every day and watch them grow, has been such a blessing. We have had so much fun together! I love playing knights and playing outside with Preston and getting to watch Kelsey begin to hold her rattles/teether and hear her sweet giggle she's starting to share with us. It has just been incredible! Preston goes to Mimi and papa's house on Mondays and he loves his time over there. This gives me some one on one time with Miss Kelsey. Wednesday's Steve's parents come over for a couple of hours to spend some time with both of the kids and to let me run some errands without hauling the kids around. It's been super helpful and gives me a little break. Some things the kids are into this month...Preston is really into wrestling with daddy, fighting with his swords and helping mom take care of his baby sister. This month he had one of his first experiences running through the sprinklers. We weren't planning on it, but we were outside and the sprinklers came on, so we played! He had a blast! He also took Mimi and Papa to see the movie "Bears". This was their first time at the movies with Preston, he showed them how good he is, it was fun! Kelsey has given us a couple of giggles which is super cute! I can't wait to hear her even more! She LOVES her snuggle time with daddy, holding and playing with her toys and watching her big brother. She smiles and laughs at just about anything he says/does. I can already tell she's going to look up to him. I think all of us are enjoying me being home. Stephen even likes coming home for lunch to all of us, having meals on the table at night, clean clothes all the time and things being a little more organized around here. So far, so good! Life is wonderful with this sweet family!
