Just Me.

My dear friend inspired me to write something simple.

(Not in any particular order) The past week I;

-said goodbye to my husband who will be gone for 8 days – missed him especially on valentine’s day – made some new memories with my sisters – showed our basement house to a family of three and all of a sudden fell in love with our home and didn’t want to leave – was given a date to move out of our house – baked from scratch numerous times this week (not at all typical for me) –

(taken with our camera before Ted left)

-dreamt about our future – watched my son try to crawl and bash his lip, not once, not twice, but three times- cried myself to sleep – did a paper heart photoshoot with a point and shoot camera and was surprisingly impressed with how they turned out – missed our canon 30d and 50 mm lens – painted  – caved and drank Dr.Pepper twice – took care of my teething boy whose top two teeth started emerging – slept very little during the evenings – decided “napping when he napped” was the best bet to staying sane this week

(taken with an HP)

-appreciated teething tablets, teething binkys and teething bibs more than every before – took care of many blowout diapers since Chase began eating baby food – realized I’ve only worked out 4 times in the past month and used the excuse of being discouraged – watched the olympics almost every night – bit my nails off while watching the olympic sports – built a wall that I’m not sure I will ever tear down again- coloured my sister’s hair and was tempted to colour mine black again – bought a box of burgundy to colour my “signature piece” (haha) but it instead coloured everything dark and it made me cry, that’s what I get for going on a whim.

(taken with my phone)

– realized again how fragile my feelings can be if I’m not guarded – wrote fewer blogs then normal – gave Chase his 3rd bath in an actual bath tub – watched as my husband was terribly wounded yet responded in love (I learn a lot from him) – worked on Chase’s book – worked on our wedding book – had the crazy desire to be pregnant again (right now) – struggled with trusting God in and with everything but know he’s got my back.

  1. Having Daddy gone is so tough… since Josiah was born, Mike’s only been gone one night, but he wants to go out this weekend for a guys hiking trip, and at first I selfishly guilted him into deciding to stay home with us… but I think I need to suck it up and encourage him to go. So Chase is getting his top teeth?! Exciting! Josiah has been teething something terrible, but so far I can’t feel any new ones anywhere… hopefully they’ll just break through soon – he and Mommy need some relief. We’re having tough nights too… Oh how I miss my sleep! I just can’t believe they are 7 months this week! I’m sad now that they are quickly leaving the baby stage… July will be here so soon!


    1. It is hard when they are gone. Thankfully my family lives pretty close ( 1hr 20 min away)! He is getting his top two teeth, and it’s A LOT worse then when he got the bottom two. I could even see the gums bleeing a few times, poor buddy. And the teeth themselves… I am pretty surprised at the size and the gap! PHEW!

      I hope Josiah’s come quickly! These started about 8 days ago and its been slow, but there is hope now.
