One Day at a Time

Maia was born 5 1/2 weeks ago . . . I can't believe it's been that long already.

I'm finally starting to feel "normal" again. And by "normal," I mean I'm not hobbling around the house waiting for the abdominal pain to ease up and I'm starting to get into a little bit of a rhythm for each day. (Though that will have to change again once I start language lessons.)

I love being a mama to Eliana and Maia, though I find that I have very high expectations of myself (I "should" be able to do more than just get them fed, clothed, bathed, get the laundry and dishes done each day.) I'm learning to give myself grace in this whole process of being a mama to two. It will all come in time I know and I just need to enjoy each day with them. Sigh. . .easier said than done. So, for now, I'm taking it one day at a time.

Oh Sharon, how long some of these days seem. Thinking of you often and praying for you!

Sharon, I'm there too. Love you, friend, and love hearing your mommy heart even from the other side of the world.

Hello, So glad to hear that you are getting into a bit of "normal" life. Two is such a huge change. Give yourself a lot of room to celebrate the small victories. Seriously getting the blog updated is a big deal!! and us Mom's of two or more remember and understand and applaud you. Your family is beautiful! :) Love, Brenda
