This weekend has been a busy one for our little Miller Manor. Since Major was born, we have been trying to figure out the best bedroom arrangement to fit four kids in a three bedroom house. Our house is a little cottage and I love it. It’s small and cozy and makes me think outside the box sometimes, and I appreciate that challenge in a home. I believe in siblings sharing bedrooms and I’m glad my babies have that sweet opportunity.
We have had Mr. Major in our room in a little corner nursery for his whole life, but we aren’t getting a lot of sleep anymore and it was time to switch things up. After laying out all of our options, we ultimately decided that Grae (now that she’s done napping.. WHAAAA!) could bunk up with the girls for a while until we get Maj on a better sleeping schedule. So Sunday after church (and alllll day long on Monday) my motherly duties included cleaning up, organizing, arranging, and nesting new little nooks for my precious ones.

I pretty much wanted to cry the whole day cleaning out drawers and packing away clothes that were too small, moving Grae out of the baby nursery that I painted the day before I had her – which seems like yesterday! Moving Major out of my room, because my teensy newborn isn’t one anymore. He is a big huge (almost) 7 month old who scoots around my house and says “dada”! Time is moving at such a fast pace, and my heart aches as it realizes the quickly passing time.
I also know that each new year brings it’s own magic and blessings and happiness. As our angels cozied up that night, fresh excitement, snuggled into their beds, I realized that the time is passing and my babies wont be babies forever.. but that they have each other forever. These changes and new memories are making their childhood together and I’m so grateful. They are happy kids, we are a happy family, and honestly we can’t ask for a whole lot more than that, can we?
Today Mr. Miller and I are divided on who we are voting for, and that’s okay. Because no matter who we vote for, we will come home and love our family together.
