I've Learned...

No matter how tired I am, my new baby's face always looks sweet.
You can sleep sitting straight up.
To eat when I get a second.
To sleep when I get a minute.
No matter how many times I've done this before, it still seems scary.
Preemie babies are not the same as full term babies.
When a nurse says to do something once we're home, I should listen.
You can sell breast milk on the Internet. (Don't worry, I didn't.)
New babies don't adequately fulfill an adult conversation craving.
Reading is nearly a thing of the past.
Friends care about our yard getting mowed.
Employers can be more than a boss.
And yes, we did just start all over again. Wow.

But most importantly, I've learned that even when my spirit faints within me, the Lord knows my ways, my thoughts, my heart (Psalm 142:3).

Peace of Christ to you,


  1. That's alot to learn in a few short weeks! He is faithful to continue to complete His work in us!

  2. I love you girl. I know it's hard, and it gets harder as the days without sleep turns into weeks and even months. Know that your friends love you, even if you need me to watch the kids just so you can go home and take a nap, bring them over. When you need grown up conversation, give me a call, or come on over, or I can come over there. Dont be afraid to open and honest and let me know what you need, because I may not always understand exactly what you are feeling like today, doesn't mean I don't care about you. I'm always here, and Matt and I are willing to help you guys in any way possible. Chin up, I promise you that within a few months, things will become a little more normal than they seem right now. Im glad that you were able to get out and go to Wal-Mart today. I know it's just Wal-Mart, but I know it helps to get out of the house.
