Our Little Girly Girl

CTW's cousin gave OK a purse for her birthday. Oh what a gift. She takes it everywhere she goes in the house. I don't know if it is the satin texture or the fact that it is her purse(I hope the later of the two). Isn't she way cute with her pink purse.

Check Me Out

Yesterday, CTW turned on Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and OK practically ran to the TV. I was in the bed sick with a stomach virus so I missed it. Today I was able to catch her in action a few times. I hope you enjoy the following video clips. It was hard to get her to walk toward the camera(I guess she is like her mom when it comes to the camera).

My Address to Anonymous

I didn't realize how important Thank you notes are to some people. Personally, I think they are very thoughtful but not essential. I guess I just don't loose sleep or think bad of people for not sending them especially when it is family and friends.

I guess some of you are wondering where this is coming from. I received a comment to the post titled "Thank You" that hurts me deeply. To my knowledge there isn't anyone that views this blog that doesn't know me personally. I don't know of anyone who thinks so little of me as a friend. I know that I am not the greatest, but I try.

To the author of this comment: I am sorry if I have been so ungrateful in your eyes. I try my best to verbally say thank you for every gift, word of encouragement, prayer, etc.. that I receive. Also, I am sorry that you don't think I am approachable. Or is it that you don't have the courage to let me know who you are?

In regards to the thank you notes that were never mailed: I did in fact take the time to write them, but didn't have addresses to send them. I have personally thanked each of these people as well as apologized for not sending the note. Everyone that views this blog should have gotten a thank you note from me. If you didn't, I apologize I guess it got lost in the mail. I can double check my list if you disclose your identity. I truly appreciate all the time and effort that you as well as everyone else puts into buying gifts or praying for my family.

I am not going to post the comment because I feel like if you couldn't take the time to address me personally than I don't need to continue to feel bad about it. I am embarrassed for you that you didn't feel it was important enough for you to include your name. If at anytime you would like to talk about this, feel free to contact me by phone or email.

To your comment about it taking less time to write thank yous than it took for you to buy a gift:
First of all be careful to use the word us since you are only speaking for yourself. Others may not feel that way. Second, it takes a long time for me to write notes because I put a lot of thought into my notes. I appreciate receiving them but I don't think bad of those that don't send them.

To the comment about having more time since I stay at home: First of all I want to apologize to all of the other stay-at-home moms. I used to think that it must be easy to get things done when you are not working outside the home. Until I became a domestic engineer(as my mom calls it), I didn't realized how much time caring for a child takes. Working moms have my up-utmost respect. It is hard to work, cook dinner, spend time with your children, and have time to be a good wife. I have been on both sides of the coin and each has its faults. Staying at home is not for everyone and I respect that, but that is not reason to belittle the job stay at home moms do. Either you don't stay at home or you are better at it than I am, but I don't have a whole lot of time to sit down and read or write. Most days I don't even get a shower until CTW gets home. I don't even get 5 minutes to use the bathroom by myself. I am not complaining, because I love it so much. It has taken me an hour and half to write this and my sister is watching OKW so I can type it up. To some people's surprise, I don't just sit on my bottom all day and watch TV. I entertain and care for a 1 year old. She needs constant attention and she doesn't really nap all that well.

I assure you that I am working on the prioritizing part of staying home, but I do think I am pretty organized. Let me conclude by saying I do appreciate everything people have done for us. I will say a prayer that God will soften your heart and that you will realize that I am really sorry for hurting your feelings.

Thanks!!

First of all, I know that I am a total slacker. OK doesn't let me do a whole lot on the computer during the day, so I don't get to post as much as I would like. I have added a few and hope to add a few more in the next couple of days. We have been real busy here at the Wells house.

I wanted to take a few minutes to say thanks to everyone who has wished OK a happy birthday either through being a part of her big day or just praying for her during this crazy first year. I am really bad at sending thank you notes, so this is my thank you note. I know it is a little tacky to do it this way, but I still have shower thank yous that never got sent because I didn't have addresses.

Thanks to everyone who took time out of their life to join us for her party and thanks for all the amazing gifts. Also, thanks for all of the thoughts and prayers you have given us. We love each of you so much.

I can't believe it has been a year since our little girl joined our family.

Thanks!!!!!!
