Savannah took her first steps on Tuesday! Aunt Bre is home from the UK and was sleeping over and was so thankful to see Savvy walk (waddle) for the first time. She misses the kids so much when she's gone and it has been wonderful spending time with her again. I miss my baby sister. :(


There is so much on my mind and in my heart lately and for some reason I'm having a lot of difficulty in expressing it all here. I'm nervous about Jared starting school again and the pressure that will be on me to take care of the girls alone for 3 days a week. I'm worried that the stress will lead to a relapse into the depression, and I'm anxious to have the next 2 years over so that we can settle into a stable, normal routine again.
I have body issues that I haven't even begun to process stemming from the tearing I sustained after Savannah's birth. To make that worse, I have guilt over feeling upset about her birth because DUH! I got my VBAC and why should I be feeling bad about it?!? But when you tear so badly the way I did, I think it changes you. It's been months and months since I last threw up in the shower from touching myself there, but lately I've been shuddering while showering and feeling uncomfortable with my own body again. I wish Elaine had stitched me up better!

The rest of my thoughts will have to wait; Savannah is up and needs some mama milk. :)

On Sunday I was woken up by Savannah pulling my hair and smiling her big toothy grin, while Emma cheered a "Happy Mudder's Day!" from Jared's arms. The day was lovely, spent with my family at Mom's house. I gave my mom and sister one white carnation each in honor of the 100th anniversary of Mother's Day (founder Anna Jarvis believe that a white carnation signified the purity of a mother's love). We had a yummy dinner and huge chocolate cake then came home to put the babes in bed and then a MIRACLE happened! Jared and I sat down to watch Rendition and actually got through the entire movie without being interrupted once! And after that we had a little fun, married people style. *a-hem* =)

I'm trying to figure out how to post the video on here...hmm....

Looks like the Duggars are expecting their 18th child. Whoopty shit.

My prediction is that this newest baby will simply fall right out when Michelle sneezes too hard.

In the past week or so we've all come down with colds and Emma has had pinkeye, tons of fluid in her left ear, and white spots all over her poor little throat (not strep though, just part of the virus she has). It's been a loooooonnnnngggg week!

So because I'm sick and exhausted, that's all I've got. Remind me to tell you later about how Emma took a dump on the grass at the park yesterday.
