I don't feel up for the challenge today.
What challenge? Any of 'em, really.
I'm just feeling worn down, defeated, miffed, sad...
I could make a long list of all the reasons and things that are making me feel the above feelings, but I'll spare you the 'woe is me' post.
Bottom line- I need to get my eyes off of me and back on Jesus.

Can I just tell you that I am so, so, so thankful for this little guy though?

When I'm feeling like the first part of this post says, all it takes is one little snuggle from my Corban, and man oh man, do I realize that I've got it pretty good.

I think he knows something is up, that his world is about to be rocked (haha). All of a sudden, he is such a snuggler, asks for 'mama', wants to sit on my lap, etc. I'm loving it, but it makes me wonder....

He got 3 new teeth this week! Two molars, and a third bottom front tooth. He's added tons of new words to his vocabulary, learned how to wash his hands and put on lotion, and successfully unfolded every article of clothing I folded this week. He is suddenly in love with shoes, and walks around to all of my Christmas decorations (santa's, snowmen, etc.) and points out their shoes. He pulls down my dish towels every stinkin time he walks through the kitchen. And he likes to snuggle his mama, but just for a minute. What a boy I have. :-D I sooo love being his Mom, and am so thankful that I get to stay home with him.

There. I feel better already. He's fussing in his crib, which means he's probably thrown his paci, gotten rid of all his blankets, and run out of articles within reach to throw. So, off to rescue him I go. Happy Weekend!

Oh, and if you think about it, please be praying for my brother JD. He has his first post-op MRI today, the first one since chemo has started. Be praying for a clear report. I'm so nervous...


  1. I could have written this post myself. Momma truths are so universal! How funny.
    Elijah does those very same things... throws all the stuff out of his crib (including his socks and pants), pulls down the dish towels, loves shoes, loves to put on (and sniff) lotion... in fact he loves to sniff candles and perfume too - ha ha.
    Does Corban by any chance get into the pantry, remove the canned goods one by one, stack them neatly in another part of the room just the way he likes them, then put them all back? Because if so, I'd say these boys must have been twins, separated at birth. :) ha ha.

  2. I'm praying for your brother.

    I'm glad you have Corban...babies make great comfort.
