I truly appreciate this baby phase of my Jesse more than any of my others. I realize just how quickly it will pass. I know that the nightly feedings are going to be a thing of the past soon, and often these are the only moments alone I get with my little man each day. I am trying so hard to remember this about my rambunctious toddler too—this is proving much more difficult though:-).
I won’t even go into how I feel this week—I’ll just sound like a broken record. To make it “short and sweet”, my emotions are shot, my energy is completely drained—I pray each day for inner strength. I am at the point of taking each day one at a time—this is not something I am accustomed too:-)--and while doing so trying to count each and every blessing that I have—believe me I know they are plenty and way too many to begin to name. That's why I hesitate to even share "my" feelings for fear of sounding ungrateful.
Here are some of the sweet moments from our week,
some of my my most important blessings in pictures:
Watching Hanna learn to care for Jesse and hear her talk about how sweet he is—knowing that she is learning things right now that will make her a better woman, and I do hope mother too, when she is “all grown up”.
Watching my boys play:
A favorite of mine that I haven’t been able to capture on camera in a few weeks—a yawn:
Looking at Jesse’s sweet face and knowing that even though he has grown so much since we first brought him home, he is still so small….
….and all he truly needs and wants is pure, unconditional love.
I love having a baby in our home. We couldn’t ask for a better, sweeter baby than our Jesse. Looking at him fills me with peace and love.
