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."

Kelsey is 6 Months old and Preston will be 4 next week!

Completely unbelievable that my kiddos are already 6 months and I'm planning a 4 year old birthday party! These past 6 months have absolutely FLOWN by! They tell you, "Don't blink, or they'll grow up!" And boy are they right! These past 6 months have been such an incredible blessing for me! I have had the privilege of becoming a stay at home mom, spending each day with my wonderful children, not missing a single "first" of Kelsey's and getting to spend the last summer with my big boy before he starts Pre-K! It has been a dream come true! I am so thankful to my incredible hubby for allowing me to have this precious time with our kids. Since I get to spend so much time with them, I am able to capture all of the things they do each and every day. Kelsey is our little roly poly! She has gotten to where she can maneuver herself pretty much anywhere, by rolling. She's not quite crawling, but can spin on that little belly to get anything around her. She is picking up and playing with her little toys, trying to crawl (I'm thinking next month), and almost sitting without assistance. She can sit for a little while, but then she tumbles over. She is such an incredibly happy baby! She is always smiling and laughing, especially at her daddy and brother. I think they are her favorite boys in the world (mine too, girls got good taste)! Preston still enjoys dressing up as a knight, wizard, ninja turtle, super hero, you name it! He is very excited about Halloween! I think that might be his favorite holiday. He can't wait to dress up like a Pirate (yes, he's already picked his costume and wants Kelsey to be a Pirate Princess and mom and dad to be pirates as well...stay tuned). He has also really gotten into Legos and building things. He can sit for hours and build with such a vivid imagination! He is also very musical! He picks up lyrics like nobody I've ever known. After hearing the first couple of notes in a song, (particularly Disney songs) he can tell you what movie its from and knows most of the lyrics. He's really amazing! He LOVES getting to go to Mimi and Papas every Monday, its his special time with them and he truly treasures it and looks forward to each week. He is getting ready to turn 4 and start Pre-K. He is going to be attending Sunshine Kids at First Methodist Stonebridge, 3 days a week from 9am-2pm. I am already getting sad that my time with him home will be decreasing. We have really enjoyed our time together, at home these last few months! He absolutely LOVES when daddy gets home! He gets to wrestle, fight, show off his tricks and really just spend some good quality guy time with his awesome dad! My heart overflows with love for these two and for my amazing husband. So incredibly grateful for such blessings in my life!
