I am so glad to say, that we are really finding our rhythm as a family of FOUR! Yes, there are days when I am so exhausted I can hardly survive the day...but those days are definitely the minority, and becoming less and less frequent. Sommer is a GREAT baby. She eats well, and sleeps well, and has cut her night-time feedings down to only 2, most nights. She is so smiley and happy, and is getting SO big, so fast. Her two month check up is tomorrow, and we are so anxious to hear her stats. I am thankful for the sweet, mellow demeanor of my second child, as these days, my first child demands quite a bit of Mommy's attention. I chalk this up to a little bit of insecurity over the arrival of Sommer, mixed with the "terrible twos." Brooke LOVES her baby sister, and cannot stop loving on her. She wants to help me do everything, which is so sweet, and requires a LOT of patience on my part. I am happy to say that the feeling is mutual--Sommer loves Brooke too! She smiles the biggest smiles when Brooke talks to her. Seeing my girls together melts my heart...I am SO happy that they will always have eachother...forever best friends.
Time is flying, and I know that is a cliche'--but seriously, I cannot believe Sommer is already 2 months old!
I will be teaching again, at Lone Star College, starting this summer. During the 1st session, I will be teaching online, and returning to classroom teaching in the second session. We will need LOTS of prayers, as we make this transition, as Brad has no real experience in caring for both girls, on his own, as of yet. I know he will do great...but of course, it makes me nervous!! I am also a little nervous about teaching online, as I haven't done this before, and I do not really know what to expect. Thanks so much for your prayers.
This Sunday, on Sommer's 2 month birthday, she will be baptized! We are so excited to have all of our family in town for the blessed joyous occasion.
I will post more pictures after her special day.
Hugs and love!
