4 months

So I've been horrible at updates, but what can I say? I'm a little busy. :) Eden is doing fantastic and still growing so well. She's almost 5 months now and at her 4 month appointment she was 15lbs. and 25". She is so strong too and has been sitting up for a few weeks. She topples over after a little bit but she beat her brother on this milestone because he was 5 months before he sat up! She is such a happy baby and is always smiling and laughing. Benjamin gets her to laugh the loudest and she just loves her brother! We had a rough period from a little after 6-12 weeks where she was colicky but thank the Lord that went away. I thought I was going to lose my mind. She would cry every evening for a few hours and nothing would help. She still isn't a great sleeper and is up every 3-4 hours...sometimes every 2 still. Sooo, I'm a bit of a zombie but have adjusted and am handling it much better than I did with Benjamin. Still hoping that one day she just starts sleeping through the night! :)

Benjamin is the best big brother and just loves Eden so much. Every morning and after every nap all he wants to do is see her and always tells her he misses her and loves her. He turned 3 in December and I can't believe how much of a big boy he is. Time really does fly by! I'm adjusting to life with 2 kids and it's really quite fun. I feel so blessed to be able to stay at home and raise these two little munchkins!

  1. Hi there... I just wanted to let you know that your blogs have been such an inspiration and encouragement to me.

    I recently had to say goodbye to my daughter, Alexa, who was stillborn. Like you, I know that God only gives us what we can bear, but sometimes I do wonder why on earth did He think I could bear this. But, His grace is sufficient for us.

    Your blogs for your little girls mirrored the emotions I'm going through. Yet your faith and hope really helped prop me up.

    I'm so happy for you that you now have such a handsome boy and a beautiful girl. :)

    Thanks again for sharing all your stories, and for being so open and honest with your journey.

    Take care, and God bless.
