Today is the first day I am alone with Blake since he has been born. He is three weeks old today and is growing! I started off the day with nursing Blake and saying a prayer for him and I. Blake started off his day with peeing on my sheets and spitting up on my pillow. Shortly after that, I put him in his crib and he slept a little. I straightened the house, got ready, ate breakfast, and did laundry....all in a matter of 45 minutes! Blake then woke up and I read him two books and played a worship CD for him. He fell asleep to the worship CD and as he laid there, I watched the video Jason took of when Blake was born. I feel like that time went by so fast and was such a blur. I wish I would have soaked that time in more when we were in the hospital and he just entered the world. I have to be careful (I am trying to tell myself) although I am tired and drained not to wish away these newborn months. What a challenge that is!
I would like to run to the store with him and see how I do. I am a bit nervous about taking him out on my own...but you don't know how you do until you try.
This evening we have a doctor's appointment for him to have his tongue looked at. I don't know if they will have the procedure done in the office today or we will have to make another appointment. I can't wait to be done with the doctor's office, I am there every week whether it's for Blake or me.
I miss time with my husband. It seems as though any "extra moments" we have, we are resting or cleaning the house. We don't see to have quality time together, but I am trying to not pressue him and be okay with the few moments we do have together.
Oh...we took Blake to church on Saturday night, and he did a great job. He slept the whole time and was such a good boy. He takes after his cousin Parker, Parker sits so well in church, it always impresses me.
