Thursday Thoughts

It's been almost a week since my last post, and so much has happened in the time frame.  I had a birthday, we went to Lexington, attended TWO showers, picked out my bridemaids dress, and have had some great success at the gym.  I'll update you on those things soon enough, but for today a short little're about to see why:

1. I'm Exhausted!!  Between Ellie's growth spurt last week and cutting teeth this week, I'm not getting a ton of rest.

2. That's right, my THREE month old is getting a tooth.  I guess she's gonna be an overachiever. Ha!

3.  I've been in the weirdest mood all week, and in the wee hours of the morning I realized that sleep deprivation is to blame.  Imagine that!

4. Actually, some prayers would be greatly appreciated.  I'm by no means depressed, but I can feel the downward spiral starting.  (if you're new to this blog, I suffered from postpartum depression that was induced by a severe lack of sleep. At least that's what the doctors say.)

5. Knowing these tendencies, I've been trying to rest as much as possible.  I'm actually headed home for a nap this afternoon.

6. In all honesty, Ellie is still a great sleeper.  Even with the bumps we've hit the past two weeks, she's still up, fed and back down in less than 30 minutes.  I really can't complain.

6. On a more positive note, I have been running this week. I'm getting to the point where I enjoy it again.

7.  I'm gonna try to get a run in again today, but that nap is a little higher up on the "to do" list.

8.  Also on the "to do" list...a date!!  I've been craving some time alone with Eric.  We try to eat lunch together at least once a week, but I would much appreciate a real date.  You know, the ones where you get dressed up, go out to dinner and maybe even see a movie.

9. I guess an early bedtime for the kiddos and Redbox rental for us will have to do.  And you know what?  I'm ok with that.  One day we'll look back on this season of our marriage with a fondness.

10.  I guess I could some up this post by saying that the Lord is teaching me this week to be content in him. Whether I have tons of rest or little, whether I'm a size 2 or 22, whether I'm on a fancy date or snuggled up on the couch with my hubby, this is beautiful season of life, and I do not want to miss it.

A New Decade

Happy 2020, everyone!  I know I'm a month and a half behind, but ya'll, January was brutal!  Not brutal in a tragic kind of way but in a "life will wear you out" kind of way. It started off with the flu...times three!  Eric, Ellie and I had Flu B and missed the first week back to school and work.  Then Eli was diagnosed with Flu A two weeks later.  Thankfully, my in-laws stepped in to help so that we didn't have to miss any more time at work. On top of the sickness, we listed our house for sale. The work it takes getting ready for market is just crazy. But we also have people coming in and out of our home at all hours and it's just kinda overwhelming. Plus, we are finalizing everything with the builder. In full transparency, working with the builder has been the easiest part! Maybe I'll do a little update on the whole building process later this week.  Now that the dust has settled on 2020, I'm going to try my very hardest to keep this litt

Mother's Day Memories

I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother's Day.  I want to start by saying that my heart and prayers go out to the "Mommies in Waiting" and to those who are missing their Momma on this special day.  You are not forgotten. We started Mother's Day at church with our crew, and we were lucky enough to be in the nursery.  We let Eli tag along, and he helped facility "Derby Races" around the table while the kids were on riding toys.  It was a hoot!  We also made cards for the mommies. We had some leftovers at home for lunch and then I spent some time laying out while Eric worked on the pool.  It was almost 90 degrees and the perfect way to relax on my special day! Eric made me a shrimp boil for dinner, and we took a family trip to Dairy Queen.  They also have presents coming later this week for me.  Basically, they are awesome!

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Have I ever told you that Eli loves sports?  Ha!  I look back at him with baseballs and basketballs at 18 months old ,and it blows my mind that he's still so interested.   The thing is, he doesn't discriminate.  Baseball, basketball, football, name it, we play it! Not only do we play sports all day, we also have to watch certain videos on Youtube.   We watch "Boys of Fall," while wearing a football helmet. We watch Alabama's "Cheap Seats,"  John Fogerty's"Centerfield," and Kenny Rogers,  "The Greatest" while holding a bat, carrying a ball, and wearing a batting helmet. And now, thanks to Space Jam, we have to listen to the movie sound track while shooting hoops!  That's a blast from the past! He hasn't found a song about soccer or golf...YET! And with all that playing, who has time to run inside for a potty break?  Not this boy! I never thought
