Just popping in to say hi! Callan is doing great, and I’m enjoying my babymoon. (He’s eight days old already!) My mother-in-law left yesterday; she arrived minutes after he was born, and stayed the whole week! She is wonderful. I haven’t cooked a meal or washed a dish. My mom and dad came yesterday afternoon and will be here until tomorrow afternoon.
Then, I’m on my own.
School starts back up tomorrow. Pray for me to be able to juggle it all. I was smart and only scheduled one subject this first week; everything else picks back up next week. These kids, I love them so much, and I don’t want to fail them. Hoping I can balance it all again, in time – household management, school, meals, church, parenting, marriage…
This new little guy is so precious. He’s gorgeous, and tiny. For the moment…he’ll be a giant before we know it! Have to enjoy it while we can. He still smells new.
Need to place seed orders already. I’m both excited and overwhelmed; too much going on for this emotional post partum mama!
Still processing Callan’s birth story. It was really, really hard. Almost devastatingly so. I need to type it out, but sometimes I’m not sure what to say, except that I feel like my body almost failed me.
