a whole slew of matching smiles
bright, bright, bright
hiking with the little ladies
sore muscles and sun covered cheeks
Ever learning to twirl
Nolie recognizing and sounding out a new word; Papa
He is kinda the hero of all of the ladies of the house.
This fresh Summer sun is perfectly timed. Charlie’s new job is in full swing and we are adjusting in fits and spurts. He loves it and is delirious with meeting new people, new skill sets to acquire, and so much more socializing than he is used to. I am growing into a full time mom, no real breaks during the day- not of the ‘pop by’ variety or the phone/text style that I had become accustomed to. This, on the surface, seems like it would be all lame. But so far I am feeling pretty epically proud of myself. I am rising above my “I can’t take another minute!” feelings, calling out in faith for a moments more patience. And He is giving it. Well, really, He is pouring it on me in a huge bath of love.
This past week had some significantly hard moments. But overall, what I take from it, what I remember, what is etched forefront? Just a whole lot of Happiness and glad that is seeping out of every little moment.
Also, my most unexpected Glad List addition.
Co-sleeping. It is really blessing my heart, my life, and my baby.
