Initially, we were planning to start our family once I completed my course work and first clinical fellowship year. But, little did we know, the Lord had different plans for our lives! I have loved staying home and spending all my time with Claire! Now that I have transitioned from student to mother, I don't know how to go back. It feels like I have left that old life behind, and going back to school is like stepping into a past self. First I was just a student. Now I have been just a mother. To do both seems daunting!
If I'm being completely honest, I think I am just lamenting the loss of any down time I have had. I have been so blessed to have a baby that sleeps a lot. This has allowed me to do things like rest a lot, keep this blog current, slack on the house work, etc. In the early months this was absolutely necessary as I healed and adjusted. Now, I know it's time to move forward, but I don't want to! haha! Please pray for our family: That I will be a good manager of my time. That Kevin will be able to adjust to his new early work schedule so he can be home to be with Claire while I go to school. That Claire will start taking bottles better. That Kevin and I will still have time to connect with each other. That Claire and Kevin's time together will be special.
Thanks in advance for all your support!
