Too fast!!!

It never ceases to amaze me how fast time flies!!! From my kids, to my marriage. Talia is almost 14!!!! Yikes. Cayden just turned 11 in Feb. 12 is just around the corner. I cant believe he is almost priesthood age. Taylor will be in 2nd grade next year and will be 8 in Dec. And sweet Brennan will be 1 in Nov. Oh and Mark and I have been married for 4 yrs on May 8th.  My children are going to have major milestones this next year. Church dances, make-up, Priesthood, Baptism and turning one. Phew. Life is so short. Its hard for me to feel old enough to have kids this old. That is a funny sentence to me. lol. I feel like it was yesterday was having the SAME arguments with my mom as Talia tries to have with me. Exasperating. Oh but how I love that girl!!! Beautiful, smart, loving. I hope she and I become closer every day. How lucky I would be. I hope she knows what she is capable of becoming. She truly has NO idea how crazy I am for her. Really none of my kids truly know that life would just not work with out everyone of them. Poor Cayden among all of these girls!!! Super sweet and sensitive, but still such a boy. He truly has( in my opinion) picked up on some great things his future wife will adore! Taylor, oh such a crazy girl. She does things that make no sense but she wouldnt be her without them. I hope that makes sense. Such a spunky sweet little thing.  Brennan so far is my challenge. From conception to birth to today, he is my mover and shaker!!! So much that he still does not sleep through the night 90% of the time. Power naps are usually all he takesduring the day. Sensitive tummy. EXPENSIVE formula and prescription. UGH! But oh that boy has my heart!!! The sweetness is overwhelming when I look into those beautiful blue eyes. He is an answer to so many quiet hopes and prayers. Conference weekend was filled with my kids and amazing hubby playing and spending time together as a family. My favorite time is when I have all of them home with me.Divorce is so difficult on the idea of family. It truly is broken. I treasure the few moments they are all gathered around me. The talk on mothers was truly inspired. I am blessed to have 4 amazing beautiful angels to hold in my arms. I thank my Heavenly Father for the sweet spirits I have to hold my hand, give me kisses, brush my hair, paint my toenails, and the best thing of all, call me mom.
