can't sleep

So it's almost 11:30 and I just can't fall asleep. Corey and I were laying in bed both talking about how stinking hot we are, so Corey just ran out to try and find some ac window units. Pretty crazy. I told him to pick up some ice cream while he's out! Miles has been asleep since 9, and I've been trying to fall asleep, but I just can't. I don't know what it is, maybe the cookies I ate at small group. Oh well, this makes for an interesting night. So what's been on my mind lately.. hmm...mostly just thinking a lot about when Miles was born and what a special time that was. I replay it in my mind all the time. I wish so much I could go back and do it all over again. Now that I've had MIles it seems I have such a passion for birth, and all I can think about is what it will be like next time. I'm really excited to have more children (God willing)! As Miles gets older it's really amazing to see how he is growing and changing so much. Each month he gets a little more confident and a little more mobile. It's just amazing to think that this time 7 mo. ago he was still in my stomach moving around, just waiting to make his debut (7 days late of course)! I just can't get over all that he can do now, he is crawling around, pulling up on furniture and standing up in his crib. He's so mobile, it's a little scary. I guess I just wish they didn't grow so fast. Last night he was sitting outside in the yard in his stroller. I was just watching him, he was so content to watch his daddy water the lawn. He saw a butterfly up in the sky and he watched it as it got higher and higher up in the sky. That was such a special moment for me as his mom, to just watch him get excited and follow the butterfly through the sky. It's the simple things like that make me know that Jesus is real and that he brings such joy to our lives! Anyways, I know this is a random post, but just wanted to let you in on what's been going through my mind lately. Miles you are such a joy and I love being your Momma!! Leaving you with a picture of Miles when he was about 3 days old. Such a sweet baby boy...

I love those fleeting times of deep thought and reflection! I'm glad you shared it! We need to hang out again soon (it may have to be when we get home from our trip, but lets just plan on it!)
