Transition.


he is the sweetest little peanut in the world- sleeping, eating, and pooping his way right into our hearts. :) he hardly makes a sound, and when he does, it sounds like far away pigeons. except when he hiccups... then it sounds like there's a giant bullfrog loose somewhere in the house.




i feel great. like... surprisingly normal. we've been out and about a couple of times- truman in the sling sleeping right through each outing. it's amazing how much they sleep at first!

i keep calling truman "myer".

how am i supposed to keep all these boy names straight??? hehe.


the transition back home has been a bit more difficult this time around due to a certain little two year old:



do you see that look in his eyes? yeah... lord help us all. haha.


yet the transition has still been sweet and manageable due to a certain powerhouse husband:



i love having his babies. it always reminds me how much he adores me. how much he adores US. he has been taking care of EVERYTHING while I try and get back into the swing of nursing and resting and eating/drinking like a mad woman.

i just can't believe there are five of us now. the thought takes my breath away at random moments throughout the day.

it's an incredible thing.

Aaah, Myer. You are now the middle child. I've been there.
I distinctly remember (when my little brother first came home) that I could now get my desired attention by being a little angel or a little devil.
I'll be praying for your middle little man.

This is beautiful. Your blog has been very encouraging to me over the past few months. I appreciate your honesty and vulnerability. I have really mixed feelings about the prospect of becoming a mother, but your transparency about your ups and downs, resistance and exhilaration, anxiety and love is a great encouragement. Thanks for sharing with us.
