Precious Moments

Wow! What a difference a little good sleep makes. Last night was the first night that I was able to sleep laying down. I know that sounds weird but I've been sleeping in a recliner since I came home from the hospital because laying down on a bed really made my insides hurt. I guess my muscles are too weak to hold everything where it needs to be? Anyways, it was really REALLY nice to be able to sleep laying down again, that's for sure!

Today Mike had the opportunity to do a half day of work for my mom's boss, so I was on my own with the kiddos for the morning and early afternoon. Remarkably enough Harrison and Heidi were wonderful this morning! Harrison was an angel and obeyed me without any screaming fits and Heidi actually had good feedings this morning. I was even able snap a few photos! That's a great day in my books!

Harrison woke up bright and early this morning at 5:45 am so our day was off to an early start. It took me awhile but I was able to get myself and both babies dressed and upstairs for breakfast. This was an accomplishment for me! So far, so good.

Usually Harrison naps anywhere from 11 or 12 to 1 or 2, so today by the time nap time came around I was ready to crash too. Praise God that both babies slept at the same time and I was able to get 2 extra hours of sleep today! What a blessing!! As we were waking up Mike walked in the door, so it was perfect timing.

The biggest news today was that Mike's contract with work was finalized!! PRAISE GOD!! It is true, not just another false promise... he will start work as soon as his paperwork is approved, which they say will take about 5 days. Thank you Jesus! We have waited so long for this time to come, and now He has blessed Mike with a wonderful career. Here is the link to the site he will be managing - Kettles Hill Wind Farm. I couldn't be more proud of Mike! He has been frustrated for so long but has never given up or thrown in the towel, he has hung in there an done what he needs to do to provide for his family. I love you honey! This is a big deal and I can't wait for this new chapter in our marriage and family life. CONGRATULATIONS BABY!

So handsome, my big boy!
work, work, work
