Don't you just love his dinosaur hat that Daddy bought for him!)
I titled this post, "A Deep Breath" because I feel like that is the stage I am in right now.
The other night as I was going to sleep, I took a deep breath and thought, "Ahhh...we have finally gotten to an easier place with our new family." Ty is sleeping through the night, 8p-8a. He is finally in an easier daytime routine (not the eat/play/sleep every 3 hours thing). He now eats like we do, breakfast/lunch/snack/dinner, AND eats what we do. He naps 2 times a day, so I get a couple hours of "me time", or time to catch up on thing that I can't do while he's up. And in the evenings, Dennis & I get "us time". Everyone is healthy. Dennis has a great job. I am able to stay home and take care of my family. I have developed some great friendships in the past year or so. And I feel like my relationship with God has grown deeper and more intimate.
It's just a great time in my life. Some would say, "Enjoy it while you can, those moments never last long." While that is true, I'm chosing not to think that way. I'm learning to stop looking ahead and anticipating so much. And just BREATHE. And enjoy the moment.
