If we had coffee together I'd tell you that I miss drinking my coffee while it's hot. And I miss drinking it from a mug with a closed top like I'd bring to school everyday. Which seems a little silly but is part of a routine that I miss.
I'd tell you that last week was rough. I felt like we were back at week two in terms of sleeping and figuring Addilyn out. I know parenting will forever be a pattern of ups and downs, but combined with our first little cold, some other life stresses and hormones, it was a hard week. I felt like I got nothing productive done and had to remind myself that some days or weeks my one job is to be Addilyn's mom and that I accomplished.
I'd tell you that I am working on cherishing little moments like when I was rocking Addilyn to sleep, praying for the kind of girl she will be. A girl that loves others and loves the Lord. As I was praying and her eyes were drifting to sleep, I got that little smile and my heart felt so happy and grateful to be her mom.
I'd tell you that I've never had a pumpkin spice latte and am not a huge fan of pumpkin flavors. And that feels like a blogger requirement that I just won't pass.
I'd tell you that I felt that a champion when we put Addilyn down in her bed for the first time (still her bed next to ours) so we could stay up by ourselves for an hour or so before I went to bed. Only to have her wake up twenty minutes later as if she was ready to play. Bummer.
I'd also tell you that while I have a hard time finding time to blog, it a piece of normalcy that I enjoy. I wish I had more time to read and respond to blogs and comments and hope that sometime when we get into a routine I will.
