One month

I'm visiting my parents this week. It's been a hard adjustment and I wanted 1) for Neil to have the extra work time and 2) for me to have the adult interaction/support during the day now that the kids are out of school. Have I mentioned that this has been hard? Before my pregnancy I was struggling to combat some depressive tendencies, and between a new baby, my best friend moving away, and a husband who needs to work upwards of 70 hours a's a perfect storm.  Anyway, I don't really want to go into all of that, but I do want to be honest about what is going on right now.  There are many good things in my life, and I am trying to get back to a place where I can appreciate them whole-heartedly.

My beautiful Nathan is one month old. If I could figure out how to do it, I would upload a great picture on my new iPad (thanks, Mom and Dad!) showing his new skill--smiling! But that will have to wait for a more tech-savvy day.

Nathan was 10 lbs, 4 oz and 22 inches long when we went in for his checkup a week before his birthday.  Not quite as big as Luke, and I have no idea how big Isaac was at that age, but a respectably-sized young laddie with delicious little baby rolls!

Good luck with getting back to a good place emotionally. It can be such a long and frustrating process, especially when you see how you could be feeling.
