So Rowan is about 5 1/2 months old now. I wonder when I’m going to stop thinking of what time/week it is without his age being the first thing I come up with. It’s not like I ever think “It’s been 9 months since we moved into our house” or “It’s been 3 hours since I had breakfast.” Heh.
Well, he is. It’s November. The trees have lost their leaves and it seems that it’s dark all the time now.
Since my last post, God has continued to bless us with His perfect timing and plans. Just when we were questioning our original arrangement with Natasha living here/watching Rowan, she decided she needed a change and moved out. She has a cute new little apartment and our relationship is no longer headed toward awkward and strained. Thank goodness. We were looking for childcare and within the week found a wonderful home to send him to 3 days a week (most women told horror stories of getting on waiting lists a 6 MONTHS PREGNANT for daycare!). Life is becoming more predictable.
On that note, Rowan is sick today (if I’ve ever questioned whether spit-up is actually projectile vomiting, I will for sure never wonder again!) Plans to go to the HP7 movie are hinged on whether movie theaters still have tickets up for the purchasing. Our community is planning a retreat for early December and I am excited for what the Holy Spirit has in store. Currently praying for an open heart and calm spirit….
On another random note, I met my brother, Austin’s, girlfriend Kim yesterday. She is seriously everything I’d ever hoped he’d find and they are really cute together to top it off! He’s never really shared info about any past girls he’s gone out with, so it makes me super happy to finally know that he’s happy in the relationship department. Tash and Ghen are still geekily-cute and Liz is continuing to focus on law school like the awesome independent gal she is.
I’m looking forward to deer hunting this weekend and am hoping that Munchkin is feeling much better by tomorrow evening. Thanksgiving will be nice too. I’m trying to “live in the present moment” and not just for the next get-together or event…. God is present in the mundane moments and being mindful of that makes it a little easier to be joyful about little things. On that note,
(God’s) peace out!
