It has been about a month since our new little daughter arrived and though I’ve missed posting and hearing from you each week, it has been such a wonderful time for our family! Little Elsie has been such a sweet, easy, and enjoyable baby. Just this morning I opened my eyes to see her sweet little face a few inches from mine smiling a huge smile at me! We’ve had so many special moments like this that I just want to take in and treasure forever!
That said though, I am still very much learning how to juggle everything in a healthy and balanced way! Some days I succeed alright at a nice balance and still getting most things done while focusing on the things that matter, and other days it comes to bedtime and from the looks of things around our home, you’d think I’d eaten bon-bons all day and done nothing! God lovingly gives us grace as we learn, so I’m trying to have grace with myself as well. My goal has been not to sacrifice these special and fleeting moments as a family with a newborn in exchange for “having it all together,” as much as I’d love to be able to do it all.
I just thought I’d stop by here to let you know that slowly but surely things will be up and running here again! Free time for me is harder to come by during this phase, but I enjoy so much getting to connect with you all here. It is a blessing and joy and something that I want to give time to as a schedule forms more and more and as moments open up. I can’t promise yet that posts will happen as frequently as before, but hopefully soon enough things will be more consistent!
I hope you have had a very blessed month!
