Seven Months and we're still alive


It's been awhile. To catch life up in a few sentences, Jared and I had Anna Wesley December 3rd. She's now almost SEVEN MONTHS OLD. *cue the tears* I'm staying at home with her which has taken some getting used to. I could do an entire post on just that! 

Being a mother is absolutely amazing and terrifying.

-creating another human being: I'm still blown away at how God creates us in our mother's womb.
-teaching her new things: She's *almost* crawling. She does the jungle crawl (pulling her body with her arms). With this crawl she could join the Army next week.
-watching her enjoy the world she's in: any time we go to a new place, she's so observant, taking in every detail. I love it.

-taking care of another human being that can't talk to tell you what they want or need: Figuring out AW's cries didn't take as long as I thought it would. When you spend 24/7 with someone, you figure them out quickly.
-being responsible for someone else's every. single. need. under the sun: Again, I'm just astonished at this. Jared and I've taken care of a wee little one for almost seven months, and we're still alive to tell the tale. ;)
