Mom bob

When Will and I were dating, I remember him asking me if I was planning on cutting my hair after I had kids. I said I was planning on keeping it long forever and that I would never get a mom bob. Since I have been sporting the same do since I was 16 I decided it was time for a change. Not to mention the handfuls of hair Lincoln pulls out daily. I was brave and didn't even cry!
Whatcha think?

That is right, Lincoln is starting to crawl!!!! I don't think I am ready for this...I know I am not ready for this! It is crazy how time flies!

We are still on the job hunt...which will hopefully end soon. I am trying very hard to be patient and embrace the small moments, however it is getting more and more difficult. There are so many big decisions to be made, that have yet to present themselves in front of us. *sigh*

Will has been quoting the talk from the LDS Priesthood session by President Uchtdorf for the last few weeks. His words bring so much comfort!

"Waiting can be hard... We live in a world offering fast food, instant messaging, on-demand movies, and immediate answers to the most trivial or profound questions. We don’t like to wait. Some even feel their blood pressure rise when their line at the grocery store moves slower than those around them."

"Patience—the ability to put our desires on hold for a time—is a precious and rare virtue. We want what we want, and we want it now. Therefore, the very idea of patience may seem unpleasant and, at times, bitter. Nevertheless, without patience, we cannot please God; we cannot become perfect. Indeed, patience is a purifying process that refines understanding, deepens happiness, focuses action, and offers hope for peace."

I really like your hair! I am excited to see it in person since I have never seen your hair short before. It's awesome that Lincoln is starting to crawl, crazy! Thanks for posting that quote, it was really beautiful and I also needed to hear it :)

Your hair is cute...when are you getting the minivan? :)

Hang in there- eventually the waiting will come to an end, and in hindsight it won't have been so bad!

Love, love, love the hair. You are a beauty with any hairdo. Congrats to Lincoln on taking those first "crawling" moves. Exciting times ahead! I remember well when my babies first crawled into a room I was in---it's such a shock at first to realize they are that mobile. No longer could sit them on a blanket and expect them to stay there.

Thanks for sharing the quote. It's wonderful--for all of us. I know things will work out exactly as they are supposed to.
