Think it over...

As we head into Memorial Day weekend, give some thought to these ideas... If children live with criticism, they learn to condemn.
If children live with hostility, they learn to fight.
If children live with fear, they learn to be apprehensive.
If children live with pity, they learn to feel sorry for themselves.
If children live with ridicule, they learn to feel shy.
If children live with jealousy, they learn to feel envy.
If children live with shame, they learn to feel guilty.
If children live with encouragement, they learn confidence.
If children live with tolerance, they learn patience.
If children live with praise, they learn appreciation.
If children live with acceptance, they learn to love.
If children live with approval, they learn to like themselves.
If children live with recognition, they learn it is good to have a goal.
If children live with sharing, they learn generosity.
If children live with honesty, they learn truthfulness.
If children live with fairness, they learn justice.
If children live with kindness and consideration, they learn respect.
If children live with security, they learn to have faith in themselves.
If children live with friendliness, they learn the world is a nice place in which to live.

I saw this on our adoption agencies blog and I thought it was so wonderful and true I would repost it for all of my friends to see!!!

3 weeks old...

Wow!!! I can't believe that MaCee is three weeks old... I wanna cry!  I love babies... I think that I am alot like my grandmother on my moms side, she had 12 children.  I don't think I am going to make it to 12, 4 seems pretty perfect to me, but I do love children and I think if my health would allow it I may go for 12!  It has been a wonderful, crazy, sleepless three weeks, and I have loved every second of it.  Everytime I am up with MaCee in the night I just think I am so lucky to be the one who gets to be up with her!  The boys are loving her they can't keep there little hands off of her.  Dalyn has tried to pick her up a hand full of times which doesn't seem like much but two of those handful he almost dropped her on head.  Avery and Braxton would hold her all day if the could, but Im just alittle nervous that they may forget that there holding her and jump up... dropping her on her head!
One loved little girl!
Our first family picture... not professional but cute still!
MaCee's curls! If anyone has any suggestions on what I should be doing with these curls right now I am open!
Super Daddy!
Soooo sweet.
Little Princess!!!
Cute little Dalyn... He has kind of had a hard time getting kicked out of the baby stop, but I think hes finally coming around to the idea of being a big brother!

Well I know that its not much but its alittle bit of an update on the last three weeks!  We are just soaking it all up... I really don't think that it can get any better.  It is such an amazing feeling to finally meet that little girl that you've known in your heart for so long!!!  Oh by the way I forgot to tell everyone MaCee rolled over today... TWICE!  It may be an accident but if she does it again Im gonna think that she is just a little genius... just like her big brothers!
