First month with baby

I have a confession. First month with the baby was the hardest experience I've experienced in a while. Let me explain. First off I had to have a C-section and it was tough for me because I have never spent so much time in the hospital nor have I ever had surgery. Not only did I have to recover from major surgery now I had to care for a new life! :) A blessing that I'm very grateful for (we had been praying for a little one ever since we got married). All I'm saying is that having a C-section is a lot of pain and it takes much longer to recover from a vaginal birth. I've heard this from many women I know personally so I'm not just making this up. The next reason why it was so hard is I think the first month you worry so much about the baby and you are new and constantly learning every day. I still am learning but now I'm more in a routine and Timothy has a much better schedule now. I am not complaning I am just being honest because truth be told this is the biggest change that's occured in my life besides getting married. It takes me a while to adjust to change but once I get it down I feel like I accomplished something great. I am so happy and proud of my hubby and I. We are raising a beautiful child, and living in our dream house. I am very thankful and I can't believe Timothy is about to be 4 months old in two weeks. :) We love you so much Timothy and I love seeing your smiley happy face every day. Thanks for being such a good boy.

What a blessing

I am feeling so blessed to be a mother. I absolutely love it so much. Timothy is growing way too fast and I'm extremely happy that he is being such a good boy on most days. I can't believe he weighs around 15 lbs and sleeps through the night. He has been sleeping through the night since he was about 2 1/2 months. I am really lucky that he is such a good happy baby on most days. He brightens my day and gives me a greater purpose on earth. I am so happy that I have a baby to spoil and love unconditionally. I sometimes think that I can't believe Heavenly Father trusted me with such a beautiful child. I continue to be amazed by watching my son grow and learn. I am so thankful that I can stay at home and raise him. I mainly have to thank my husband for that huge blessing. He works so hard for us and is always so loving and understanding to me. I don't think he realizes how much I love and appreciate all he does for us. I love being in love and having a sweet family. Timothy is such a loved little boy and he has two set of grandparents that can't get enough of him. I am a lucky girl and Timothy is a lucky boy. I know every mom says this but I truly mean it. My little son is such a handsome and loving boy. He is photogenic and modeling already at the age of 3 months. Love you BUBS!

Callings in our church

Since Chris and I got released from our calling in nursery back in April we've been calling free! I don't know if that's a good or bad thing but let's just say that I knew it would only be a matter of time before Bishop Clouse gave us a new calling. I am happy to announce that I am a visiting teacher Supervisor. I know it sounds very authoritive but it's quite easy, I'm very excited of what I get to do and how it will help me improve on my visiting teaching. I can honestly say that at first I wasn't very excited but the more I talked to other sisters about it the more I am looking forward to serving the Lord and doing my calling. I need to be better at being positive lately because I feel like I've been grumpy and super sensative. I need to be happy and count my blessing every day. Good night!
