Well it's been a while since I've posted a family update, so here's what we've been up to recently.
Josh has been doing evening clinicals this week which means he goes in around 2:30 pm and stays until about 11:00 pm. It really fits his "night owl" personality. He administered his first epidural last week for a c-section and two nights ago did anesthesia for a kidney transplant. Pretty exciting things for him. His clinicals the first of the year will send him away from home so please say an extra prayer for us!
Micah has been into everything lately and really keeping me on my toes! The other morning I woke up to a dirtied crib (read: poop!) because Micah had taken his diaper off. First thing in the morning. It was ... not my favorite thing. A little bit later I took a really quick shower and in that five minutes he managed to get into the DVDs and slide a couple of them underneath our tv stand, including Daddy's new favorite game. And the icing on the cake was that he locked himself in his room. Luckily it was a pretty quick fix and he was rescued without the need for door removals or 911 calls. It was a crazy morning. But I do love that little guy and he can make me smile and laugh like no one can.
He greets me every morning jumping in his bed and smiles and says, "Sept (slept) good, Mommy!" or "Hi, Mommy!" And if I've already showered and my hair is wet he says, "Oooo, Mommy sowerd" and sniffs my hair. I just love him.
And this past weekend his loving and hardworking grandparents installed a swingset as Micah's birthday present. Needless to say, he loves it.
Evie would have been one month old tomorrow. And Sunday is her one month in Heaven. I still feel like she was born yesterday. The memories are still so fresh in my mind and I pray they never fade. It's all I have.
I am doing alright. I'm still trying to figure out how to grive appropriately. I have so much hope and thanks to the Lord that Evie is in Heaven but I just miss her so terribly. What is the appropriate balance in between the two? I'm not sure. But I am able to do normal life and enjoy it so I imagine that's not a bad thing, it just seems to take more effort.
I have a really difficult time concentrating these days. It's hard for me to focus and figure out what tasks I need to accomplish. Life just feels a little complicated. Continued prayers are much appreciated!
Well that's it for us this week. Thanks for checking in on us. Have a great weekend!
