my little boy & my birthday
I blink and the day is over these days. It is busy but in an exhausting, full, rich, and blessed sorta way. Abishai is already 6 weeks old! He is such a sweetie and although adjusting to three has been kicking my butt some days it feels like he has always been here. But I definitely forgot how tired you are at the beginning but it is nothing compared to being nauseous 24/7 so I am good. Great. I also seem to have blocked out just how many nasty fluids newborn babies emit. Seriously last week after dealing with a blow out, being pooped on, and wiping more spit up off my neck then I care to remember he peed on me again and I decided to just make it part of my ensemble. It is just how I roll these days.
In other news I turned 34 last week! My first thought after looking at this photo was that I have wrinkles that were not there a few years ago. Shortly after the self deprecating thoughts I remembered that these wrinkles and dark circles and extra 15 pounds I am currently carrying around are well earned. That a life that is only about myself would not be worth living. That sharing my space, body, energy, life, and love with those around me is a blessing. One that has taught me to be more forgiving of myself and others. We had a great weekend in Iowa including a yummy and indulgent night out with my man. More soon but here is to a fabulous year,
