I am still amazed that I am a mother of two boys. They have grown so quickly while I am left here scratching my head, wondering what I missed. Today, Kadin rolled over for the first time. He did it for his Gappy Luann, but I can't help but be a little sad to have missed it. I was doing speech therapy, which is good too, but I am a little selfish about those things. I know I missed his first smile and laugh too while I was in the hospital recovering. I am reminded by many that there is plenty of time to enjoy all that he has yet to discover. While he works on bodily movements, my oldest Zach, is working on mental movements. He will actually carry on a conversation with you, and it makes sense. When did this happen? They are growing so fast and I love being here to witness it all. This reminds me that God is in control of our future. This weekend much of my family will gather together to celebrate the patriarch of the family (my Grandpa's) 95th birthday. What a treasure he certainly is and an excellent example he has set before us. I can't wait!
URGH! I am not sure how to put this... so here goes.... I haven't seen many people since I have been home from the hospital for many reasons, but primarily it is due to the stress that it has on me/my body. I am however always amazed at how people look at me. It feels as if they think I should be in a wheel chair drooling on myself. It seems as if everyone is so amazed that I look normal. Although at times I feel far from that, by appearance I still look the same. I am attaching a current picture so that everyone can see what I really look like. I have pictures of myself in the hospital but I am not ready to share those yet.
Thanks for the continued prayers! I really do appreciate them.
