Derrick's blessing day was really nice. I was little sad about two things though. One that my dad couldn't be there since his middle name is my dad's and also that I wasn't able to hear the blessing because Aaron was trying to convince me that we needed to go back to the van and get his car for the quiet book. After church we had some two families from the ward come over for dinner. That filled our little house with lots of noisy kids and great people to talk to so if felt like a blessing day party.
The last two months with Derrick have been busy and of course required a lot of adjustments but I sat in testimony meeting feeling so grateful for him. He is such a sweet smiley baby. He still loves to snuggle up to me and go to sleep. I love the breaks in the day when I sit down and feed him. It is the first time I haven't been completely stressed breast feeding. With this fourth child I've let myself take the time each day to enjoy him even though there is so much to do. In so many ways I feel the happiest I've ever felt and I think it's because I've finally stopped worrying so much about a lot of things that really don't matter. I'm grateful to be married to a wonderful man who I will celebrate nine years of marriage with tomarrow. He is such a great blessing to me and truly loves me unconditionally. He puts up with all my funny quirks. I still love being around him and love when he gets home each night. I am so grateful that he is the father to our four children.
