Brought to you by the number 6...

Was thinking today about the significance of the number 6... kinda random but I'm going to blog about all the things related to the number 6 today!!!
6 Years - since my mom left this world to meet her Creator.
It's hard to believe it's been 6 years.. SO MUCH has happened in that amount of time.
I had a horrible failed relationship,
my sister got married,
my dad got remarried and I gained 7 extra siblings,
I met and married my Darin,
I lost my father in law in a tree cutting accident,
I birthed an amazing daughter,
mom would have 5 grandbabies and 3 more are on their way..
yeah, stuff I never could have imagined that I would do without my mom. This is a picture of her and I at my brother and Natalie's wedding just 3 weeks before she passed away...

Doesn't she look good?
Yeah, a little thin but spunkier than ever. This picture was after dad put us in the brides room to protect my mom from any germs that may have followed the wedding guests in. This picture was also right after my mom called dad "Hitler" because she SO wanted to be out greeting their guests but knew she was too sick.

Oh.. I could go on and on about mom. How much she would love Adie and melt when Adie says "mamaw Linna"... how much she'd love Darin... how her and dad would have been married 37 years...

Yeah... I miss her a ton.
Sometimes more than I can take.
But she's with her Creator.

And many of the things I've been through without her only prove that for some reason I needed to go through those things without her and ultimately trust The One that will never leave my side.
Yeah, I know that.
But it doesn't mean I don't miss you, mom.
Love you a ton.

Okay.. I'll move on to some more shallow "6" themed things! That was obviously the one that I've been thinking about the most today!
1-2-3-6-9-10!!! - When Adie counts, she gets too excited about saying 4 & 5 and skips to #6. Dude, who needs 4 & 5? They are so overrated...

60 hours - until we move into our new room! Waiting until I have a photo shoot on Friday in there (there's great lighting and it's a huge area for the little guy to run around!) so we'll move in Saturday.
Here's some pictures...
Curtains up (I made em').. carpet and trim in place... even the reading lamps are ready to go...
So exciting. =)
Still don't have a bathroom that works in there but I can handle trecking to the other side of the house for the john in the middle of the night for the time being. We are just too excited NOT to move!
And Adie will be moving to her big girl bed and bedroom starting next week too! Then I'm gunna start getting baby JJ stuff ready in the nursery. SO CRAZY to be in the 3rd trimester!
6 lbs - gained in 3 weeks. Don't want to talk about it. Had a good cry on the way home with my Darin. Bless his heart to listen to this beached whale cry all the time.
6 - Birthday meals for my 30 year old hubby last week! Um, maybe that's why I had a ticket on the Gaining Train?
16 hours - of my life that I will never get back because I watched season 47 of the Bachelor. Yeah, 47 seasons and only one successful marriage. Why do I watch it? This one made me super mad. Come on, Jason.. did you have to end it on TV? I really think Melissa should have smacked him.
Not usually a big advocate of Jerry Springer-like-punching on the ol' boob tube but that dude deserved it. And that's probably why they didn't have an audience.. I'm sure they would have started to shout.. "hit him, hit him!" and the ABC security guards would have had to come out and break it up.
I know, I know.. I'll probably watch the Jillian Bachelorette season 48. Don't roll your eyes at me when I get mad at that season too!

unfortunately, i know all too well how hard it is to lose your mom. especially when you're young, and REALLY especially when you become a mom yourself and need her there. love and hugs darcy, you're not alone. :)

Every time you write or talk about your mom...I that weird? You are so strong and I admire you for it. The rest of your blog just made me the part about gaining 6 pounds in 3 weeks! Oh I remember those months and already feel I'm on my way. Bless your heart!Love, love the room and how Adie forgets 6 when she counts. James would always forget 6 & 7. Oh, the joy our munchkins bring us! You are the BEST!!!

Tracey said...

Awww...that is a great picture of you and your mom. This brought tears to my eyes. You are so strong though. And, I can't believe you are in your third trimester already! Who cares about the 6 lbs....this is the time when it doesn't really matter-right?!? :)

Susan said...

Stephanie said...

did I miss something. I did not know that anything like that happened. guess I will have to see if I can catch it on the internet.I thought he would have stayed with her.

Jill H said...

Darcy, you are NOT a beached whale, you are a pregnant mama!!! I know the weight gain is hard but just ignore it for now, or look away from the scale next time :) your baby girl is going to be healthy so feel good about that! I think that picture of your Mom is amazing, that she looked that great. I know I would be so proud of my daughter if she was like you. And enjoy that beautiful new room, I love the blue!
