Eleven to Five : Fifteen

That’s right, we got a “full night’s sleep” (according to pediatricians last night. Way to go Rachael! She was out cold with no grumblings that couldn’t be curbed by self-soothing. And then to top it off she slept her usual 3 hours after a 5:15a feeding to allow a whoppin‘ 8.5 hours of rejuvenation for her Daddy and Mommy. Oh yes, world, we’ve got a good one and we’re not trading!

And I also pumped a whoppin’ 5.5 ounces of liquid gold last night. That’s right, friends, I filled that little bottle and have six feedings stored in the fridge. Guess it’s time to start asking Lydia how exactly I should freeze this stuff.

Awake times have increased, including morning and evening awake patterns for approximately an hour. Yay Rachael! And it’s fun to watch her explore her world – studying faces and things.

Anyway, that’s how things are going here. Just simple
and finding a good routine.

Alrighty, off to a little cleaning and breakfast for myself.

Looking forward to Jackie visiting for a while today and Aunt Yvonne visiting and Matt’s day off tomorrow. Oh and then there’s the Melting Pot outing with Ron and Ellen. (We will never eat so lavishly and expensively again!)

The church has also so graciously signed up to start bringing dinners by for Matt and I. Thanks again, Lydia (if you actually read this) for setting it all up with such joy and ease.


Have you ever thought that the all-sufficient Savior has promised those who walk in blind faith more than our minds can ever comprehend? That the only True Savior renews our minds, even when we feel most useless toward His Kingdom work? The Lord of all dares to touch our hearts, even as we stumble to find obedience. Oh how this soul wishes we Christians would embrace His Truth! And that the world would be different because of obedient hearts. Lord, change me. Lord, change us. All for Your glory. ---------- I am a Jesus-follower, a Homemaker, a Wife of the best man EVER, a Mom of 4 wonderful girls, a missionary in Africa, a Friend, an Encourager, a Seeker of integrity who is unsatisfied with a mediocre walk in Christ, and Blessed beyond any words that I could ever express. Thanks for being interested in my little slice of the world.
