Family Update

Every Friday I used to (try to at least!) post an update on the happenings in our household.  It's been a while, but I'd like to start up again.  Probably not every Friday, but maybe once or twice a month.  

So here's what we've been up to ...

Josh is finishing up his clinical rotation at one hospital and will be spending the next two months (May and June) at our local children's hospital.  For those of you who don't know, my husband is in his last year of nurse anesthesia school and will be graduating in December (Lord willing!).  And some other great news ... he essentially has employers fighting over who will hire him (ok, slight exaggeration but you get my point).  Never a bad scenario when looking for a job!

Micah.  Oh that child!  What would I do without him!?  He's my special little buddy.  He is now potty trained (since March) and loves that independence factor.  One of my favorite things right now ... every morning he comes to my side of the bed and I lift him up so he can lay right next to me.  Then we just snuggle while he plays games or watches shows on "mommy's sone" (phone).  It's such a sweet time and allows me to snatch some extra zzzs :)  He is also totally into superheros, star wars ... basically anything involving fighting or shooting or manly strength.  

Evie.  Almost six months in Heaven and still changing the world.  I still get emails from time to time of people just hearing/reading her story for the first time and being touched by her little life.  It's so special to know how much she impacts people.  

Me.  Still plugging away at life.  I'm in a bit of a stoic spot emotionally right now.  Truly, I am so tired of being emotional and crying and I try to avoid things that illicit such feelings.  I know it can't be that way forever, but in a fairly calculated effort at self-preservation, I feel the need to be quiet for a while.  And I have learned through one particular grief book that it is better to embrace what you feel and not fight it, because embracing what you feel is allowing the grieving process to progress in a healthful way.  Still making it though, still putting one foot in front of the other.  And still hopeful for the future.  

Well that's what we've been up to.  I hope you have a great weekend.  Thanks for checking in on us.
