ABCJLM: Year 2, Week 21

I feel very accomplished now because we’ve watched a lot less TV last week and I’ve gotten a few things done around the house. The week definitely got better as the days passed by. We continued reading Psalm 23 and working on committing the first verse to memory. Our song was Jesus Loves the Little Children. Toddler Girl […]

Emotional Rollercoaster

Yesterday was a really good day for me. I went to see my midwife for my three week postpartum checkup. I’ve been healing up great and the baby has been growing.

My Labor Story

My water broke early Monday morning. I was so excited that it was finally time to meet our baby. I knew from last time that labor can last for more than a day so I was prepared to have a longer labor. I was surprised when labor picked up and we were calling for the […]
