A Step Inside bio picture
  • Welcome!…

    to “A Step Inside”… our personal family blog, documenting the craziness of our every day life.. Sit back, enjoy, laugh, and share in the road we travel..

    I'm Bridget.. A SAHM (stay at home mom), mother of 3, and a follower of Christ. I'm also a photographer, and passionate about life.. I hope to share that w/ you too! Life isn't always perfect, but it's perfectly created in His plan. I'm beyond thankful for God's grace and His many blessings!

Sunday, April 5th…

Whew, last week flew by! Heck, who am I kidding.. the last NINE weeks have flown by! lol.. Weird weather weekend.. We awoke this morning to hail pounding ridiculously against our house.. yikes!

Kaylor finished her Ireland poster.. I believe she was proud of the results. Especially since she added an “Ireland Rocks!” at the bottom.. Um.. written in marker.. can’t be erased.. Well, let’s hope Mrs. L thinks “Ireland Rocks!” too! haha.. Ashlyn has discovered her hands, fingers & ears! She now will bring them directly to her mouth and chomp on them. And her poor ears.. she finds one and will give it a tug.. So far it hasn’t upset her, but she sure does get a hold of them. Oh, and this was kinda crazy.. She is nine weeks old now, and last night when she woke for one of her feedings, I lean over to get her out of the pack-n-play bassinet, and she’s ON her tummy! We always put her on her back for sleeping and SOMEhow the little stinker managed to get herself rolled over.. I couldn’t believe it! I’m pretty sure it was a fluke..but so crazy to see! Here’s a shot of “me & my girls”.. (I love that I’ve let go of having to take great shots & always be so technically proper.. These snap shots are ones that I’ll cherish more than any)..
I realized today.. I guess I’ve always known that I’m like this, but it become much more apparent to me when I took a step back. There’s something about grouping thing together, and sorting things, and making lists.. My brain yurns for this! I did several loads of laundry today and the thought popped in my head.. “are these things ‘normal'”? “do others do this?”.. For starters, the clothes hanging in my walk-in are completely sorted & grouped.. Long sleeved t-shirt type shirts, short sleeved dressy tops, long sleeved dressy tops, sweaters, tank tops, jeans, dress pants, tan dress pants, etc. EVERYTHING is sorted by category.. And it’s not just clothing.. Programs on my PC.. they have to be opened in a certain order, so that way the tabs along the task bar are in order.. Cans in my cupboard have to have the labels facing outwards, and items are grouped by what they are.. soups, broths, beans, etc. And lists.. I’m constantly jotting lists down. I get tickeled at the idea of new folders, or a pretty spreadsheet opened up on my PC.. Yowza.. Okay, so there you have it.. call it what you will.. I don’t prefer to call it OCD… maybe just brain organization? I truly feel when the physical things around me are “in order”, grouped, etc. that my emotion well being is the same.. Alright.. going back to my hole now.. My nice and categorized hole.. lol.. Nite!

LOL on the organizing, but I sort of feel the same way. When my house is in chaos I feel my LIFE is in chaos! Which it feels like a lot lately. Ah well. Great picture of all three of you beautiful gals!!

What a beautiful picture of you and your two girls!! So sweet!And, I'm totally with you on the organization stuff. I call myself an ADD OCD, though…because my OCD habits go in spurts. I am super organized one day, and living in crazy chaos the next! I am definitely my happiest when things are in order. 😉
