For the first time since becoming a mother I’m really started to notice the exhaustion creep in. I’m certain it was there in the beginning but amidst all of the chaos I never felt it. Yes, I felt weak physically. Especially that night when she transferred hospitals and we followed the nicu ambulance to the children’s hospital. Trying to keep up as they pushed my 4 day old child down hallway after hallway felt like running a marathon. But now I just need a good nap. Or 5. I didn’t sleep well throughout my entire pregnancy so were coming up on a year and a half since I had a solid 8 hours. I don’t even remember what it feels like. I’ve tried caffeine in the mornings and I just get jittery and feel sick. No what I need is a good nap. And I told my husband today that next weekend I will be taking one.
This weeks photo is brought to you by beautiful summer weather. It’s been a little warmer then my perfect weather, but not too hot to play outside. And this kid loves to be outside. I wish our yard was more kid friendly and less dog friendly. Ok it’s not the dog friendly I have a problem with, it’s the dog poop and pee. Although I am looking forward to fall, we are soaking up the last bits of summer swimming, roasting marshmallows and grilling out. It’s been really lovely and I’m planning on continuing until the weather no longer permits.
You can find my favorite photo this week here. A beautiful girl, gorgeous light and vacation. Oh vacation how I miss you.
