Many of you know that I just had my second baby Leyton O'Neal and he is absolutely beautiful. (YES, I am working on the pictures I've taken of him and hope to have them up soon...tomorrow or Saturday) One thing you may or may not know about me is I'm very comfortable helping others and no so comfortable receiving help! I'm one of those second born girls that has always said, "Anything you can do I can do better!" But, having a baby forces you to look at your weaknesses. Well, actually parenthood in general makes you very aware of your own "stuff." It ain't pretty sometimes. At my church mom's group this week one of the ladies said, "Before I had kids I thought I was a really good person!" It's true. I really try but, there's so much I wish I could do better. Since Leyton birth, I'm learning all about receiving blessings from my friends and family. Transitioning from one to two is not as easy as I would have thought. AND to top it off I have a squishy tummy and hormones going up and down without warning. It makes me laugh...and minutes later it makes me cry! It's crazy but, I know in my heart it's temporary. Soon I'll be sleeping again but until then I need to rest and receive.
Since I've come home from the hospital: Matt's been there to help, I've received several meals and lots of homemade goodies for my non-diabetic body, friends continue to offer to take Adriah on fun outings and I take a nap every afternoon! I am blessed!
I guess I wanted to blog to say thank-you. Each one that has blessed me...know that I don't take it forgranted and I feel like I couldn't be making this transition as smoothly without your prayer and support! P.S. I'm working on the hand written thank-you's and at the rate I get interrupted...they may take a while!
I can't wait to know this little boy but in the meantime I will happily serve him and receive the blessings of you helping me!
