Quick Life Update

Life is good.  I feel so incredibly and overwhelmingly blessed.  I have a healthy little baby girl.  She smiles at me.  She eats well.  Her tiny little arms search for me and gently tickle my skin when I hold her.  She is perfect, and chubby, and so beautiful.  She will be 2 months old in just five days!

I am healthy (I have carpal tunnel & tendonitis, but hey, I can deal with that).  My body is starting to feel a bit closer to "normal," although I still have a good handful of lbs. to loose.  I'm excited about the cooler weather and really starting to run/exercise.  (I did one run at 3 weeks postpartum but have stuck to walking since then).  This morning I am going on my first jog with little nugget with my BOB stroller.    

I started my new job last week -- assistant middle school youth director.  It feels nothing like a job.  The youth group kids are amazingly fun.  I'm enjoying going to their games/matches/meets.  This past Sunday night we ran around the church playing lazer tag.  My boss is A+mazing & 3 of our best friends are also on the youth staff.  

My sweet husband continues to just get sweeter.  He is such a good daddy.  We've been playing lots of 2 person Catan.  We love having coffee together in the morning.  He has been busy with lots of fun commissions with his art and taking part in some really cool exhibitions and competitions.  Part of the reason we are going to California in October is because he is part of a juried art show with the National Impressionist Society.  To brag, my husband is pretty much the bomb.

So many dreams & prayers feel like they are coming true.  I am so happy.  Don't let me full you -- I am human and have days that are less than peachy, but I look at my life and just see blessings upon blessings.   



  1. awwww loved seeing this update! looks like things are good around your nest!! :D

  2. reading this happy post made me happy :)

  3. we may or may not be leading parallel lives.

    Did you develop the carpal tunnel after baby? I got it too about 2 months in. It is getting SO MUCH better now (just to give you hope) I wore braces at night and watched to not flex my hands to much doing the day and now only my left thumb is giving me consistent trouble.

    Also - your husbands work IS beautiful.

  4. I love Catan! Settlers, right? My husband and I used to play together all the time. So happy for you and your wonderful life!
