Up to Maddie... and back.

Since my boys were little, I would randomly ask them "Do you know how much Mommy loves you?" and somewhere along the way I taught them the cute little saying...  Up to the moon and back.

I'm sure many of your children say this very same phrase and it's so very sweet.

To hear my sweet babies say these words in their little soft voices is just something so precious. I love it.

Since Maddie Grace went to Heaven 18 months ago (on the 8th) my boys have changed the way they respond to this very same question.

I'll never forget the first time Noah said it to me.

I cried.

We were laying on the couch snuggling and watching movies when I said "Boys, do you know how much I love you?" and without hesitation he said... "Up to Maddie and back"... "because Maddie's in Heaven and Heaven is even farther than the moon... So you love us all the way to her and back, don't you, Mommy?"

He's such a sweet (and smart) little guy. I just love him!

So, since that day, over a year and a half ago... the boys still say when I ask them that question..

"Do you know how much I love you?"

"Up to Maddie and back" =) and that my friends is a lot of love!!

Maddie Grace is still such a part of our lives, even from Heaven... and for that I am thankful.

Just felt like sharing that today... =)


Much love,
Natalie

Hello there!

I just wanted to post and say I'm still here and everyone is doing great! Just REALLY busy!

Rick and I just got done hosting a huge 4th of July party! Then we went on to celebrate our 9 year anniversary on the 5th of July and the rest of the weekend.

I will write and share about all that soon.

But for today I wanted to share a few photos of my Jonah Asher who is now 7 months old!!!

And... share some photos from his recent photo shoot! We sure love this little guy! He's amazing.

This week I'm very busy planning my sweet Husbands 30th birthday! I can't believe he'll be 30! We were barely 16 when we met... time flies! Well, better run, I have so much to do! =)

Enjoy!!!
