Most times I write a post I have time to think about and organize my thoughts before writing, but unfortunately I have not for this post. My thought might seem out of order or scattered but it can only be expected as I’ve only had a solid 2 hours of sleep at a time for the past week or so. Yes, our baby has arrived. The most overwhelming and precious gift we could have asked for. Really you can never be quite prepared for the changes a baby brings, you just have to do it! I could wax on about the lack of sleep I’ve had in the past days, but I’ll try to steer my thoughts away from the negative and focus on positive.
The things I’ve really been thankful for: A beautiful, healthy baby, great fall weather to take Jadon outside in, velcro clothes that are easy to take off and put on in the middle of the night when coordination has stopped, Adventist television in the middle of the night, a husband who can work from home and help out when necessary, friends and family who bring food, friends who gave hand-me-downs (saved so much money because of that), and many more things. These are just a few of my thoughts lately.
On a more serious note, I’ve realized that its time to start getting serious about my prayer life! I’ve always felt assured because I KNEW that my mom was praying for me every day. In whatever trials I faced, she prayed for me. Now I want to give my children the same gift. Pray for me as I pray for my new baby 🙂
We were not able to have Ronald’s parents with us for Jadon’s birth. Jadon’s “due date” was supposed to be October 10th which was Canadian Thanksgiving this year. But the Odiyar grandparents are on their way today, so we are excited to see them. Then Uncle Royce arrives in a week. We have a lot to look forward too in the near future.
Hopefully soon my brain will start working again and I can write a better blog post. Just thought I’d give an update.
