The last couple of days have been a whirlwind of excitement and changes. Some of our best friends welcomed a sweet baby girl into the world, Hampton went to his new classroom to meet his teacher and Weston had his nine month appointment! We also got some exciting news for Ryan that was really wonderful! It is a reminder of how blessed we truly are. Honestly, it’s easy to say that when things are going well, but things haven’t been sparkly and shiny, lately.
It’s no secret that my kids have not been sleeping lately. Hampton has had so many fears, and that was the case when we went to meet his teacher. He struggled to walk in the classroom. Sophie has not been sleeping well and Weston has actually started doing a little better recently. He has slept through the night a handful of times in the last couple of weeks which has made me feel like a new person! It’s bittersweet because I miss our middle of the night feedings. Isn’t it always like that? You pray and pray for them to sleep, then as soon as they do, you miss those moments. You pray for them to feed themselves and then you miss spoon feeding them. You long for those days and those moments. My babies are growing up so fast. Sophie starts school tomorrow and again, it is so bittersweet. I’m looking forward to having that time to work, run errands and spend one on one time with Weston, but I will miss them, too.
The other day, I was talking to Ryan about how blessed we are but how sometimes, I feel sad at the same time. Sad for the thins we don’t have – like more time with our babies. More family road trips and quality time where we aren’t working or running errands. These years are flying by and I don’t want to regret not taking full advantage of them.
So, just a few things on my mind this Monday. I hope you guys are having a great start to your week! Happy back-to-school day for those of you who started back!
