IMPORTANT: I'm sure you all read Mckmama - but if you don't - please go here and pray for her baby Stellan. He was a miracle baby but he is now having very serious health issues. They need our prayers.
I haven't written in the last few days because I've been dealing with my first big challenge as a mommy - "Momma doesn't get sick days".
I have been pretty sick all day Friday and Saturday. I think more than anything it is just exhaustion because Harper didn't sleep much the few nights before and I just hadn't had any rest. I don't get sick very often but it is especially hard to be sick and have to take care of a baby.
My parents were here on Friday so that helped a lot. My dad went with me to help me clean out my office. They had a cake for me and gave me some sweet parting gifts. My work was so supportive about me leaving - it meant so much to me. We enjoyed having Nonny and Granddaddy here.
I felt better Saturday morning and my friend Hillary was in town so Laurie and I met her for brunch at Mimi's. YUM! I was so excited all week because my favorite muffin was in season - chocolate banana! It is the BEST! The company was even better - I love my friends. Those two girls make me laugh so hard.
This is how I spent the rest of the day on Saturday. Harper doesn't nap during the day most of the time but I think she knew mommy was tired and needed some rest. She and I sat on the couch and she fell asleep in my lap so we laid there for 4 hours and slept together. I think we both needed that! (She is OUT in this picture. ha!)
Here is my girl this morning - her onesie says "Not spoiled, BLESSED!". So true! Scott went to church and I am home watching some local churches on TV. I'm missing singing in the choir this morning. I look forward to being able to worship again soon! (although I worship alone by myself all the time!)
Hope you are having a good weekend. It's spring break here this week and it seems like everyone is on a fabulous trip. Vacations are one of the best things EVER! Sometimes planning a trip and the anticipation are just as great as the trip itself.
Also - I love how small blogging makes the world. You remember how I told you that I discovered that the dr who delivered Harper was my long lost friend from 4th grade? Well I saw the comments from another blogger this week and she and her sister went to church with us when we lived in that same town. I had to tell her what a small world it was and that I knew her! And then the next day - she delivered a little boy and he has pneumonia and is in the NICU. Luckily- he is doing better than Harper did at first - but he could still use our prayers. Go look at Tenille's blog and pray for little Will.
Also - this young mother lost her husband and the father of her two young boys yesterday to a brain tumor. Please pray for peace and comfort.
