I must admit I have had a very hard time adjusting to this new role and maintaining those I was already in. I miss the wife I was before Ruth came along. It's like I have no idea how to do both; I know Ruth has been a less than easy baby (she is a pure delight just nearly always throws a fit to go to sleep...it just took 1.5 hours to put her down for a nap). She is suuuuuper social and thus anything that doesn't involve a lot of activity tends to register on her "not-so-cool" list. She is all smiles, has the most beautiful blue eyes, and makes me feel like a million dollars just to hold her.
I need prayers. Prayers to do this great, not just well. I want to love the man I married fully and right now I know he just gets the leftovers that come from lack of sleep, not eating "breakfast" until 2pm, and trying to sift through other peoples' wisdom and not feel defeated.
Thanks for listening. Or reading I should say. I love our daughter and my husband with all of my heart and am just trying to figure out how to love them with excellence and my first fruits and not just the remnants.
It's a beautiful life. I desperately want to live and love well.
Handsome and Me
My silly hubby.
I know. Like could she be any cuter???
