A little more calm.

Thursday, February 10, 2011

Thank you so much for those of you that left such uplifting words yesterday! It's a super choppy post, but I just had to get it out.

I spoke with my boss after I wrote the post and figured out a game plan to account for some of the unknowns through the rest of the week.

After that, I ate a cookie.

I kind of wanted another cookie.

I left work and picked up my Mom to bring her to her physical therapy appointment and we were mulling over our options for both a helper for my Mom or someone to watch Isaac. Just as we were descending the stairs, my Mom suggested my friend Lacey.

How had I not thought of her before? Lacey is a stay at home Mom with a 4 year old daughter who loves Isaac and a 4 month old Lylah. Lacey and I began texting while I waited for my Mom's session to end and she was thrilled at the opportunity!

So today, I am working from home, spending time with Isaac and tomorrow Isaac gets to go play with Olivia for the majority of the day!

God is good and I'm very blessed to have great friends!

Yeah! What an answer to prayer! Great, trustworthy friends truly are a blessing!

You crack me up..."and then, I ate a cookie." Isn't it weird how little things like that can help turn something around? I was thinking about you today and praying that you would find a solution that you felt comfortable with for Isaac.(Is that weird since we're not friends IRL? Whatev. Prayer is prayer.) Can't wait to hear about Baby Love and the ultrasound. That is sure to turn your entire week around.

You know, after you lose a baby, and have the ability to become pregnant again quiet quickly, you go through a whirl wind of emotions. I felt the same way as you did until we had our ultrasound for the anatomy and gender scan. When we were told that everything looked great and was right on schedule, we both took a breath of fresh air. Now, we just wait patiently for each appointment to hear the heartbeat to reassure us that we're still doing the right things and he's still thriving.

If you're like me, you will constantly have a little bird in your head making you second guess what you know can't possibly be happening but the unknown is freaky.

I'm with you.

These days will become further a part and happen less frequently as your appointments come and go and as you progress.

Eating a cookie doesn't hurt either and as a matter of fact, I'm sort of jealous...

I'm glad you're better. Just stay positive, even when you can't.

Leah, I just read your post from yesterday. I'm so sorry you're having such a rough time.

I don't know how out of way Maple Grove is for you, but if you're ever in a pinch I could certainly watch Isaac for you. I'm home every day with Kyle and they would probably make good playmates only being 3 months apart. :)

You can always e-mail me for my phone number.
