Recovering From Cranky Palooza

Oh, look how sweeeet and cute I am!!

Don’t let her trick you!! This certainly does not look like the unruly baby that kept her parents up long into the night and nearly drove her mother to the brink of insanity! But it is!

Running on fumes, I had very little patience left. Fortunately my sweet, amazing hubzbind was not only able to step in on the second hour of non-stop crying, but stayed home this morning to let me catch up on my ear-plugged sleep. I hope and pray I can return the favor by keeping Nornor content and quickly back to sleep tonight! There is nothing better than the luxury of a full night’s rest! I was (jokingly!) conspiring with William about what we could do to get thrown in jail because maybe we could SLEEP there. Desperate people do desperate things!! (settle down, I’m kidding!) (kinda! ;)

Although we are low on energy we had the great pleasure of going to the Brian Reagan (comedian) show this evening with my parents. It’s always good to get out and LAUGH! Funny, funny stuff!

Meanwhile back at home:

I conclude by asking for prayer not only for Nora, but all the other babies and children out there with serious and life threatening illnesses, of whom there are far too many. Lengthy hospital stays, medications, medical equipment, hospital bills and their families’ stress of trying to juggle their old way of life with the new. Tonight little Lee is on my heart. You can read more of his story here.

It is God who arms me with strength
and keeps my way secure.
(Psalm 18:32 NIV)

  1. Thank you SO unbelievably much for sharing Lee’s story. I just read some of Laura’s more detailed updates about those early days with Lee in the hospital and I lost it. You mamas are the strongest women I have ever met to be able to face such uncertainty-filled days with courage, hope and strength. All my love.

  2. I CAN REMEMBER SLEEPING WITH OUR OLDEST SON ON MY CHEST EVERY NIGHT TO RELIEVE HIS LITTLE TUMMY WITH THE 6 MONTH COLIC. I WORKED TILL 5:00 P. M. AND WENT TO THE HOSPITAL AT 7:30 P.M, TOOK MY TWO WEEKS VACATION AND THEN BACK TO WORK. I HAD THE BEST BABY SITTER, MY MOTHER. WHEN YOUR MOM TAKES CARE OF YOUR BABY YOU DO NOT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THEM BEING TAKEN CARE OF PROPERLY, YOU KNOW THEY WILL BE. I AM SO HAPPY THAT YOU HAVE GOOD PARENTS THAT HELP YOU OUT. I MISS MY PARENTS SO MUCH. BUT ANYWAY, WHAT I WAS GOING TO SAY IS, I REMEMBER THOSE DAYS WHEN THE BABY WANTED TO DO NOTHING BUT CRY. I PRAY THAT NORA IS TIRED AND WILL SLEEP REALLY GOOD FOR YOU TONIGHT, SO YOU TOO CAN GET A GOOD NIGHT’S SLEEP. GLAD YOU WERE ABLE TO GET OUT FOR A FEW LAUGHS. HOPE LITTLE NORA IS FEELING BETTER FROM THAT OLD COLD SHE HAD AND THAT IT DOES NOT COME BACK. THANK YOU FOR THE BEAUTIFUL PICTURES OF NORA, I LOVE SEEING HER SWEET LITTLE FACE EACH DAY. I AM SO GLAD YOU HAVE SUCH A LOVING, CARING HUSBAND. MY HUSBAND ALWAYS HELPED ME WITH THE BOYS, AND IT WAS SUCH A RELIEF TO BE ABLE TO JUST GET THE WORK AT HOME DONE, IF NOTHING ELSE. LOVE YOU ALL. GOING TO YOUR NEXT BLOG.
