So Jackson is six months old as of Wednesday and is doing very well. He is rolling over, eating all sorts of baby food and his giggles are so wonderful to hear. He loves his nanny (three days a week) and spending a day with his Grandma and he gets to spend a whole day with daddy too.
I can't believe it has been six months. I still have those days where I'm surprised we have a baby in our house. Like when I'm kissing him and putting him in bed, I still think it's weird that there is this little person in my life. And he's a little PERSON. He has a personality and I didn't expect it to come out so soon.
Maybe this is a new mom thing, but I'm amazed at how big he's getting and how he babbles and wiggles and gets excited when he sees me or Charlie.
While we are adjusting well to being parents, I need to ask for prayers for my bladder. I have been struggling the last couple of months with my IC (interstitial cystitis) and several infections that haven't really been cleared up with antibiotics and the antibiotics sometimes cause other infections. But I'm sore and jumpy and stressed and panicky when I'm away from home.
So, I would like to ask for your prayers and I will thank you in advance.
If you're reading this blog, you might already know that Charlie and I are going through the process to adopt a child. It has been a long road to this place, and infertility is not for the faint of heart. But we firmly believe that God's hand is upon us and that He preparing us for a child who needs a loving home, with people who want nothing more than to be a family. If our journey interests you, read on.
