my mind is playing tricks on me

Sorry it's been so long since you've heard from us. We were out of town for the holiday weekend. We went to Rockport and had a great time! We took the boat and enjoyed being out on the water with the fam. Kelvin's mom and nephew came down for one day, and we pulled the kids behind the boat on the big 'ol tube! They squealed and held on tight and had a complete blast. The only thing that could have made it any better would have been piling Emma on there with them. She enjoys being in the boat so much though. She fell asleep quickly after we got moving several times. The big kids and Kelvin did a little fishing too. How cute are they?!

We've had some pretty rough nights ever since I mentioned that Emma had been sleeping well. I should know better than to say something like that! Anyway, Emma didn't sleep all that great while we were gone, so I was pretty sleepy when we got back home. Cora kept waking up, then Emma would hear her and wake up. I was up and down, and as soon as I got to sleep good, one of them would wake up. One time I woke up in one of those confused states...I was actually holding Cora, but I was looking for another child. I knew Emma was in her bed, and I knew Cora was in mine, and I knew my big kids were upstairs, but my mind kept telling me there was someone missing...a little toddler girl...I suppose maybe the girl I miss every day and yearn to see running around and playing with her brother and sister and holding her new sister. I hate it when my mind plays tricks on me.

Isn't she a cutie pie?

  1. I definitely can sympathize with the getting up, getting one baby back to sleep, putting her down, only to repeat the process with the other baby. I can sort of grasp the exhaustion, though mine is nothing compared to yours. You're amazing.


Thank you for stopping by. We love hearing from you. Blessings!
