It's officially National Blog Posting Month... why do I care about this? Really, I don't, but it's got me thinking about the direction I'm going with this.
And the truth is; I don't really know! I will, though, have a month to write about whatever comes to mind- and perhaps that will push this blog somewhere.
Here's my thought for the day: It just doesn't get better than this. Most days, I want things... a new house, something I feel passionate about, more stuff, no debt, a healthy son. Most days I compare myself and our life to other people's. I worry too much about what other people think of me and I often feel I should be doing something different than the thing I'm doing at that moment.
Today, though, I didn't feel that way. The past few days, even, I've felt really content. That's the feeling I want to last this year. Not a resolution, I guess, but If I were happier or could harness that feeling daily, I think it could really change everything.
Rowan is doing so well lately. He's happy, rolling over, talking, holding his head up. He eats meals, is seizure-free, and is learning little things. These may be small milestones to some- but to us, they're enormous.
And you know what? I'll take them. If this is all we get, I'll take it. I'm not even kidding.
Lily is such a strong little spirit. I absolutely adore her. She refuses to apologize until she means it, which means some lengthy time-outs. She's not in time out very often-but when she is; they're doozies!
She cusses when she's angry. Again, not all the time- she's got to be super pissed, but boy can she throw down when she feels her rights are being violated.
She is sweet and really loves her mommy (and daddy, of course- but she's my little buddy).
She said I'm her best friend... again, I'll take it. It just doesn't get any better than this.
