400th post - silly words from g-cubed!!!

holy smokes, this is my 400th post... that's insane!!!  I've had this blog for 4 years now (when I found out I was pregnant with Gabby...) and before that I had another blog where I wrote mostly about Gavin.

flowers, weeds & meatballs - oh my!!!

been in a blogging slump... boo.

crazy busy with work... lately there has been lots of pregnant teens to counsel... lots of babies born... lots of tears shed... lots of praises given... lots of hugs... lots of stress. 

oh... and lots and lots of Mother's Day cards written to almost every client that made an adoption plan for their child since I started with Bethany almost 6 years ago... did you know the day before Mother's Day is Birthmother's Day?

one nice thing about my job right now = the flowers outside the office 
 (I don't care if these are 'weeds' - I like them!!!)

crazy busy with life... t-ball, yard work, groceries, laundry, end of the year kindergarten stuff, organizing millions of things... but I'm trying to remember not to be too crazy busy that I miss special moments with these adorable meatballs...
