What I Learned This Week...I'm finally back!!

I'm finally back to join JoLynne's "What I Learned This Week" carnival. My life has been crazy and I have learned so much, so I'll focus not only on this week, but on the past couple of months.

  • Being very pregnant, temporarily single and having a three year old is a challenge.
  • The recovery from my VBAC wasn't nearly as easy as my previous c-section recovery.
  • I'd rather have a vaginal birth over a c-section even though it was tough.
  • I'm far more capable than I think I am.
  • Moving is NOT fun.
  • Moving a week before your due date is just plain crazy.
  • Apartment life is not for our little family of four. We need our new house to be finished...yesterday.
  • I miss Michael Jackson.
  • The Muffin thinks that he used to be a boy, but is now a girl. But she knows who he is and I could not say that about her before his death. Hopefully, she'll love his music just like we do.
  • Living near my family is such a blessing.
  • Trying to find a new church is so hard.
  • Missing our old church is harder.
  • We are all homesick for our old house and our old town.
  • Baby Ellie completes our little family. I'm pretty sure.
  • Buy a toddler a bike=have a happy toddler...for a while.
  • The Muffin is okay when we leave her alone with strangers while at church.
  • Wearing Baby Ellie in a sling makes my heart happy.
  • The Muffin really loves being a big sister.
  • I have time to read blogs, but I cannot seem to find the time to comment and that makes me feel bad.

Congrats on your lovely new baby! So precious! But I have to ask, how are you even able to put two words together, let alone an entire post? Do you have a cape and tights somewhere that we don't know about?

Congratulations on Ellie! Interesting about the VBAC recovery. I'm going to try VBAC for my next one and I wouldn't have thought the recovery would have been tougher. Hmmm. Still won't deter me though! And you're right...finding a new church home is tough, especially when you've left one you love! Good luck!
