Getting Started...And An Ending

I am having such difficulty with my second blog entry. My issue is not knowing where to begin...I'm a blabbermouth...very wordy...extremely talkative. There is so much to say! Do I talk about my pregnancies, my upbringing, what I'm making for dinner, the ups and downs of marriage, my current sore throat??? What is weighing most heavily on my mind right now is the fact that NJ is 17 months old, and my husband just had a "V" yesterday. I can't believe I will never be pregnant again! Never experience the overwhelming joy of feeling my baby kick inside me...never...well, I won't dwell on it. Instead, I am savoring every moment with my 17-month-old. Right now, he's watching a "Miss Pattycake" DVD in awe. His favorite song is "10 Men" and he loves to sing along with the chorus "Thank you, thank you Jesus" and do the motions with it. He is curious about everything. I love to just sit and watch him think, learn, and explore. His hair is so silky...every time I kiss his head, I think, "I will never be a mom to a baby this age again!!" It makes my heart ache, but it also challenges me to put my best effort into my kids, not just "getting through the day," but making it a great day for loving and learning. This is easier said than done, however! I love that God's Word says His mercies are new every morning.

  3. HUGS Kristina! I can definitely empathize with you! Jake is now 3!! I cannot believe it! I get my "baby" fixes at MOPS, etc.
    It's not the same as having your own though.
    I went through what you are going through about 2 1/2 yrs ago.
    You do get past it. trust in God.
    also, here's a link to a friend's blog...she has 7 girls!

  4. Awww... Believe me, I understand. Ian was 11 months when Dave had his "V". It's nice not having to worry but at the same time it is sad too, isn't it? I too, enjoyed being pregnant! HUGS. Enjoy your little guy!!! My baby is 8. WAHHHH!


I'd love to hear what you have to say about this...
