Being pregnant is hard, labor is hard, and having a newborn is hard…but all of these things share one amazing fact: you have no period.
Sadly that time of life has come to an end and well this basically sucks. When I opened my fertility charting app today under notes I wrote “crampy”. What did not get included, but is very much a part of my life is “last night i almost cried because I love my kid so much, five minutes later i almost cried because I felt so suffocated and exhausted by my kid, five minutes after that I threatened to call the county health inspector when the restaurant we were eating at told me all of the high seat chair straps were broken, five minutes after that I turned down ice cream because I am eating healthier, less than 24 hours later I bought a large canister of sea salt caramels”.
You get the idea…
Pictures to cheer us all up:
1. Samuel loves spending time with great grandma!
2. All packed and ready to go.
3. Eat your greens.
4. Happened upon this gem in my grandmother’s church.
On a more serious note lets all be praying for Syria. The people there need peace so badly, but I truly doubt that our warships and bombs can give it to them.

Tonight thanks to my wonderful sis-in-law Philip and I enjoyed a date night.
After finally got Samuel down I quickly threw on a dress that I could not breast feed in, gave Hannah more instructions than she probably needed, and then literally ran out the door giggling in excitement.
Phillip is my partner and love. We had a wonderful night, but were just as giddy excited to return home to our little guy.
Because that is just how it works now.
It’s exhausting, but we love it and it makes times like tonight even more special to me.

I can’t believe this kid is seven months old!
I jumped into the world of parenting books for the first time this week. I’m reading “Spirit-Led Parenting” and have really enjoyed the little I have read thus far. The premise is about choosing to follow God and your god-given intuition in parenting versus operating from a place of fear. I need this and can’t wait to delve deeper in.
Guys and gals am I really talking about parenting books?!
Things sure are different around here…
Especially if you count the fact that I currently have an baby who is fast asleep, in my lap, sucking on my boob, as I type this.
On that note, goodnight.
Go under the Mercy.
