Chillin’ with My HomeGirl

Can you believe my baby is already six weeks old? It seems like yesterday I was in the hospital, stressing about her eye and all the things that could possibly be wrong with it.

And here we are. Her eye is perfectly healed. And we are now in another home, another state, and she isn’t yet two months old.

You’ve come a long way, Baby.

If I didn’t say it before, THANK YOU! Thank you to everyone who prayed for me during my pregnancy and labor and delivery and now postpartum seasons. The last six weeks, though not without their challenges, have gone by really well. I am so thankful for the way that God has sustained me through two major life upheavals in such a short period of time. Thanks for watching and praying. He has been so good to us!

I still haven’t found the “new normal.” I am struggling to get the day-to-day routines in place and to get our school schedule back up to speed. Thankfully, FishPapa goes in to work early and gets off early, so I am not alone in managing all there is to manage.

In fact, we’ve had some great conversations the past few days, trying to determine what we’d like life to look like. While we know our plans are always subject to His plans, it’s nice to think through these things together and set some goals. I really feel like I can’t quite get my head in the game. So, your prayers to that effect are appreciated! I want to be efficient in how I spend my time and — let’s face it — actually get the chores done once in a while.

And at the same time, I want to enjoy chillin’ with my little homegirl and the rest of my peeps.

    She has that sweet “milk comatose” look. ; ) Love the bling bling on her hood! : )

    Have a great day, Michelle

  2. That bling is courtesy of her Auntie Jamie. I wish I were as well dressed.

    She is just too cute! Makes me want another girl.

  4. She is so cute! I’m due in 9 days and can’t imagine 6 weeks from now, doing everything you have accomplished in that amount of time. I’m sure “normal” will be coming along very soon.

    What a little beauty! Good thing she has four big brothers to look out for her! ; )

  6. WOW! Has it only been six weeks??? So much has happened since than for you guys!! She’s just a doll. (And BTW, I just turned six weeks pregnant myself….so lots of wonderful little lives were being welcomed and created six weeks ago !!)

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
