why it's been so quiet
I realize I haven't been blogging as often...and it makes me a little sad. I love blogging but lately I just haven't felt very inspired. It's not really a lack of time that's the issue...although our Little Man certainly keeps me busy during the day (and night!). I guess I've been really trying to focus on this parenting thing. It's not easy! Lately Liam and I have been working on getting some kind of normal day time schedule worked out. I've been following his cues and we have a pretty good routine going. It's not down to the second or anything but we're pretty much eating, napping, and playing at basically the same time each day. It's nice to not feel so lost all the time. We also have it so that he's not screaming bloody murder before every nap time. He may fuss a little but he usually goes down after just five minutes of rocking. Thank the Lord.
Nighttime sleep is a whole nother issue! It's a mess. No real consistency except he's back to only nursing two times a night rather than three. The other times he wakes up we try to get him to go back to sleep on his own or we rock him or, if we're desperate, we bring him into bed with us. I know I should probably consider some kind of sleep training buuut I'm at a loss in that department.
Anyway...between all of that and trying to re-adjust to life in Denver after three weeks in Miami I don't even know what to blog about. I admit I've had a lot of "dark moments." Moments when I don't want to talk or even think. I just want to cry out to God for help...and He really has been helping me. I feel a lot more at peace now. Being a stay-at-home mom is tough...especially with family so far away...but I have really been feeling God's comfort and guidance. And I hope that soon I'll feel the blogging inspiration again. Until then, bear with me, maybe even leave suggestions for what you'd like to read about. Thanks, friends.
