Whoever wrote that song was so wrong. There are some things that hurt even when you’re not crying about them. In case you couldn’t guess we said goodbye to my sister and her kids this past weekend. Although I cried hard only on Friday night during the goodbye it still hurt on Saturday, Sunday, Monday… I will be thankful for the day when there are no more goodbyes.
We’re all doing well otherwise, just super busy right now. It’s amazing how adding one more child really throws everything for a loop. Even though all Micah does right now is eat, sleep, and poop the kid takes a ton of my time! But you know, that’s ok with me. I wouldn’t change having him for the world.
Rina adores her brother “Ma-cah” as she calls him. Sometimes she can’t kiss him enough or get her hands on him enough. There are moments when I wish she loved him a little less to be honest. There are still the moments of jealousy. Sometimes she just cries and goes in to her room, grabs her blankie, lays on her bed and calls for her pacifier. Yes, as long as she’s willing to stay on the bed I’ve been giving it to her. It breaks my heart every time she does this.
Micah will be 3 weeks tomorrow and some days eats and eats and eats! I’ll be curious to see how much he weighs at his 1 mos appt. If he grows like Rina did/is he’ll jump quickly to the head of the chart at least in height if not weight for awhile as well. We’ll see.
I totally agree about the hurt part…it hurts for a long time. Makes me long for Heaven even more. I do love you all very much!!!
We love you too!
I third the hurting part!! Still hating the silence in the house! It sure would hurt a little less if SOME family moved closer to the home base! At least when we said goodbye it wouldn't have to be for a year!
