well the limited internet access is about ready to drive me nuts! It's so hard to keep in touch - I guess I got spoiled with access at work...
Mom & Dad have several pics of Aaron on their blog, as well as of our new house, which we moved into this weekend. (insert gasps for air here)
We are amazed and astounded at the blessings of God. Here are some of our most recent happenings:
- I realized that being a mother of boys will mean that I have an extra shirt in the diaper bag at all times.
- We are now in our new house!!! (amidst many boxes) and we can live there!!!
- My ankles have finally made their re-appearance after several months of swelling, much to my amazement, and I can wear my wedding rings and toe ring again. HURRAY!
- I am married to the world's BEST DADDY ever.
- I love being a mom.
- I have a great kiddo.
Allow me to praise God for this: we've had several nights of 5-hour sleep sessions followed by a 4-hour session. I don't have any illusions of it continuing for an extended period, but I DO take every night like that as a precious gift. Sleep is a beautiful, beautiful thing.
Okay, I need some opinions. The other day, I was changing Aaron and talking to my mom when all of a sudden, he started to move a little more than usual. The child rolled over onto his tummy. I looked down in disbelief and quickly flipped him back on his back. I said, "yeah, buddy, try that again." And the child promptly turned himself over again, and lifted up his head. The little man was 18 days old. This is unusual, yes? Honestly, I wouldn't believe it if I hadn't seen it myself. And I wasn't hallucinating; Mom is my witness. However, I didn't think they were supposed to get to that rolling over accomplishment for several months. I'm praying it is a fluke. Early mobility doesn't settle well with me.
I need to get going so I can wake the young child for his feeding. First, I shall attempt to post pictures. Thanks for the prayers and for keeping up with our family!!
