I'm Still Here!

Well, it's been a while since I posted, and I apologize. The last months of this pregnancy, and the first weeks of our new son's life, have proven to be challenging for me. I find that as I get older, and have more things going on, I have a harder time collecting my thoughts coherently. In fact, I started a different post for today, but there are so many directions that my mind is going on the topic I've chosen, that I decided I better think on it a bit more. It will probably end up being at least two posts, maybe more.

I am going to try and be more consistent with posting here, but quite honestly, it is difficult with a toddler who is having a bit of a hard time adjusting to not being the baby anymore, and a newborn who needs to eat often. I'm not particularly good at typing one-handed :-), so many times when I would sit down to post, I'm handicapped, so to speak. Even now, Josiah is trying to demand my attention. If you think of it, prayers for him would be appreciated. He adores his new little brother, but with this being a surgical birth, and the added complications that has given this first 6 weeks, this has been a difficult adjustment for him (he's just 2), and he is still working on that adjustment. I am trying to give him *some* leaway, recognizing that he is in transition, while not allowing him to get away with murder ~ which can be a very fine line! But I want to give him room to adjust while not throwing all our training out the window.

I want to thank those of you who have stuck with me, even through this long dry spell. As I said, there are many things I want to talk about and share, but putting the thoughts together through the muddle that is my mind lately has been more than challenging!

May God bless your day.

God bless your family and what a precious new addition. :) I've been checking your blog when I could to see if the new one had made his/her appearance yet. Your blog is always a blessing. Thanks. I'm sorry you had to go through so much but I'm overjoyed your son is safe in your arms. God is good! Not sure if you remember me ... We have Elijah (adoption) home safe and sound and I get to start home schooling this fall.
