four things

Not the happiest of days for our little family of three right now, but I'll talk more about that later. For now, there are four things I've learned in the past few weeks:

1.  Hard times bring a family closer together. (and also challenge your sanity.)

2.  Teething is no joke. (seriously. we're talking head spinning, ala Exorcist.)

3.  Babies do not stay lap babies for very long. (and boy, are my arms tired.)

4.  You have not lived until you've spent an entire day processing 73 chickens in 90+ degree heat,  with a baby on your back. (we are ever so grateful for help from friends.)


As we trudge onward into the unknown and try to sort out our future, there is one thing that keeps us grounded, hopeful and full of love.

This face, these eyes, that smile.

There are good things and happier days to come. We're going to be fine.

P.S. Don't worry, this blog wont be all about Zander. Promise. He's just the best thing going right now.

  2. You can make it all about that cute boy as far as I'm concerned. Of course, a cute lamb now and then doesn't hurt either. Hang in there Mama.
