Teagan is One Month Old

So the time has come and one month has passed. While I knew it would get here, I just never realize how fast it's going to approach. And it's already come and gone like a blink. My how time flies...even more so when you have two. The fun part about this week was the day Teagan turned 4 weeks, Aiden was 21 months, so it was a special milestone of sorts for both my kiddos. Hard to believe in a few more weeks, my "baby Aiden" will already be two! That is scary.

The past month has had it's fair share of ups and downs, but for the most part has been so fun. We've taken road trips, seen family, had friends over, and explored the great wide world or running errands with our two babies. I have truly enjoyed being at home with them and watching Aiden coo over his baby sister, giving her kiss after kiss all day long. It is so special for me to be able to watch as a Mom, but also as just an observer...to see his sweet spirit and joy over life. How I pray that will never go away.

Baby Teagan is doing great and growing like a champ. We still have some minor "BM" issues, but we're working through those and helping little Miss get her groove on with the poo. She had grown to 6 lbs. 10 oz. at her second doctor's visit, so she's slowly creeping out of her preemie clothes, which is great news.

No one can truly ever prepare you for being a parent of two little ones. While it's plenty scary in theory (which I experienced a lot while pregnant!), reality is a whole different animal. Not sure if it's sleep deprivation or sheer parental stress, but it's both the most work and the most joy one can experience simultaneously...of this I am quite convinced. It is a tiring adventure of wills and strength, but one I am grateful to be living. Amidst all of this new stuff in our world, we have had some earth shattering news break through our sunshine of happiness and bring in some potentially gloomy clouds. However grim it may seem, we are hoping with eternal optimism that God's provision will continue and we will find hope in the face of doubt.

If there is one thing I am sure, it is that I am so in love...with my Aiden, with my Teagan, with my Nathan, and with my God more now than I ever have been before. His amazing love and compassion is evident more and more every day in the faces and in the lives of these people he has put with me along side to be my family for life. I am blessed more than words.
