I haven’t been around much to comment or update do to my large family. Here’s what the last month has looked like.
*doctor appointments- Donovan is 4 months old and 12 pounds (he’s a skinny little thing) but 26 inches long
*never ending trips to grocery stores
*shuttling girls to and from school 3 times a day
*permission slips and t-shirts for Izzy’s first major field trip to the zoo
*being a single mom for much of the last 12 weeks because Alex had 12 business trips in those twelve weeks and was gone from 1-5 nights every time.
*I went to Oregon
*Movie with friend
*Get together with friends
*Last weekend we all went to Minneapolis to visit my sisters, nieces, nephews, brothers in law etc.
Monday- drove all day home from MN got back at 2 AM
Wednesday- Layla’s 5th birthday
Thursday- Cleaning, cleaning, cleaning, Layla school conference, another grocery trip
Friday- More cleaning, Alex going to movie with friend, so I’m going it alone for the night…. again. Its ok, because I owe him, making english toffee
Saturday- planting flowers in the town square
family get together at our house for Layla’s birthday (so some cooking involved obviously)
birthday party for Layla with school friends
And in the midst of all of this are countless meals, naps, breastfeeding, snacks, breastfeeding, diapers, feeding, diapers, feeding, diapers, feeding, diapers…..
So that’s where I’ve been. I miss you all, please forgive the lack of comments.
My church sang this song on Easter. It was SO moving. I was in such a crappy mood today and listened to this and it made me feel so much better. I LOVE it!!!
