God alone is Sovereign

1 Chronicles 29:11

Yours, O LORD, is the greatness and the power and the glory and the victory and the majesty, for all that is in the heavens and in the earth is yours. Yours is the kingdom, O LORD, and you are exalted as head above all.

Anna Grace - July 26

Yesterday was a pretty bad day for Anna Grace. She had a really hard time sleeping (specifically napping) yesterday. By the time bedtime rolled around (7:30 pm) she had only napped about a total of one hour yesterday. Needless to say she was SOOOOOOO tired that she couldn't fall asleep and CRANKY. Brian ended up putting her in the car about 8:00 last night & driving her around until she fell asleep. We've never done that before and it was one of those things BEFORE I had kids that I said I would NEVER do. It's funny all the many words I have eaten since becoming a Mom :) Thankfully the driving around did the trick and after they got home we put her in the crib and she did pretty well last night for sleeping. I woke her up at 11:00 pm to feed her and then she slept until 5:00 am. I fed her at 5:00 and then put her back to bed and then she slept on until about 7:00 am. For us... that's a pretty awesome night. So.... I say all that because right now... at this moment (2:46 pm) on Monday, July 26 I have BOTH kids napping at the same time. Why is that such a big deal????? Becuase I think it has only happened for me ONCE the last seven months. Hence the blogging in the middle of the afternoon :) Anyway... I better get off the computer now and do some real work... like laundry.... and cleaning.... and picking up the toys strewn around my living room. I am thankful to be a Stay-at-Home Mom and to have these two pretty great kids of mine.

The big question I have is, how did the painting go Sat? Did you get LOTS done?? Let me know if we need to have another MOPS painting party at the Bentley House. ;):):)
Love you girl-- glad you had some peace this afternoon-- praying tonight is a repeat of last night! :)

All I have to say is I TOTALLY get how having both kids napping at the SAME time is a totally successful day! Not to rub it in or anything, but I've had LO and Chase taking afternoon naps at the same time for about 3 or so months now, and I couldn't imagine my life without that good 1.5-2 hours of "downtime" to get all the "stuff" done that us SAHM's do! :)

Praying they've started a pattern and stick with it from now on! AND praying that Little Miss gets back into the swing of napping!
