Since I seem to be short on time these past couple of weeks, I thought I would at least share a few pictures of what our life has looked like lately as a family of five. Eventually I will get around to writing something of substance or at least a little more lengthy than a few lines.
Grace is doing amazingly well and growing, weighing in now at 5 pounds 2 ounces! She is a
happy and content baby, except for when she is really hungry. After hardly being held during her time in the NICU she has taking a liking to snuggles and being in our arms and will even let out a little squawk when she is set down.
Although I am not a new mom, I am new at the newborn stage and all the busyness that it entails. It is a balancing act that I hope I can improve on daily, learning how to make enough time for each of our children and learning how to be present even when I am trying to nap.
I find myself just wanting to freeze time, to be still more during the day. To just sit and have her in my arms without worrying about the next thing that needs to be done. These past three weeks have gone by so quickly and I realize they are moments I won’t have back. I want to savor every one of them and hold the memories forever in my mind and heart. And as much as I want our little peanut to grow I know I will miss the days when her little 5 pound body fit so perfectly in my arm.
