The Baby Haze

My goodness have I had blog posts on my mind!  As I am perpetually feeding a baby, loving on the boys, and figuring out this whole "I have three kids" thing; I keep coming up with GREAT post ideas.  Things I want to share.  Things that are working so well for our family right now.  Things that are not working at all.  Concepts we are still struggling through as we raise a preschooler who is quickly becoming school-age, a toddler that is acting more like a preschooler, and a newborn that we are just getting to know.

But here's the deal: it is still very much survival mode around here.  People are still bringing us dinner, taking the big boys so I can sleep, and picking up my groceries.  I am still napping in the afternoons, going to bed right after dinner so I can get enough sleep by morning, and nursing constantly.  We feel very loved and incredibly supported by the hands and feet of the Body, but we are definitely giving thanks for the daily provision the Lord gives us.  Just enough for that day.  And with just enough time to feed the baby, get much-needed rest, and care for the beautiful boys that we have; there just aren't many/any two-hands-available moments in the day. 

Someday soon I'll be able to share the incredible story of Laura's birth and a few of the sweet moments of the last 4 weeks (Yes, it's been four weeks!). Until then, we deeply appreciate your prayers as we continue adjusting to nurturing a family of five.  Keep 'em coming, please!  And thank you!
