i had a bittersweet moment this morning. first i have to explain that levi likes to be held in the weirdest positions he hates being cradled or being rocked. he likes to have his legs bent or being bounced high into the air. weird i know! well this morning he started to whine a little and i picked him up and just put him in the cradling position so i could grab his soother and blanket when all of a sudden (insert drum roll) he stopped fussing. so i just kept rocking him ahhh such a mothers bliss when a baby falls asleep in your arms. while i was rocking him i looked out the window to see the ambulance at my next door neighbors house. i have only talked to Mary twice since we have lived here. I feel like i know her tho, maybe because i make up stories about her life. she is probably 70ish and lives by herself. there is a man that comes over quite frequently and they like to sit at the dinner table to chat. i have declared this man to be her boyfriend, its probably her brother but a bf is much more exciting to me. he mows her lawn for her every week, doesn't that seem more sweet as a boyfriend?? anywho this is going somewhere i promise. it was so sad to watch them roll her out to the ambulance ( yes i was a noisy neighbor and watched between the blinds ). here i was having such a moment with levi and forgetting about all my worries and stresses, forgetting that the world still moves on. its kinda an aha moment as oprah would call it.
i get so wrapped up in my world of all my stresses and worries, when i could have been doing service for others. im gonna make her a dinner when she gets home and take it over, you can hold me to it!
so thats my bittersweet moment, my baby asleep in my arms and my neighbor going to the hospital. it might seem weird or creepy but it gave me an AHA moment.

Oh how my world has changed. I absolutely love it! Dont get me wrong when i have had 2 hours of sleep 4 nights in a row and its 4am and its the 3rd feeding of the night im not thinking i LOVE this. Im thinking its gonna get better i know it! for the past 2 days i have ventured out of the house by myself for more then just 10 mins. i have such a huge fear of having a screaming baby in a store so if i can’t time levi’s feedings and naps just right i dont go out. im trying to over come this fear. so needless to say im so PROUD of myself for doing 2 days in a row! we are also spoiled that levi can breastfeed and bottle feed, we know not alot of babies will not do this. YAY for Levi! here’s a picture of him looking way to big for being a month old today.
For those of you who are close to me know that since i have been on mat leave i tend to do everything with my sista! in 2 weeks she will be moving to edmonton and it makes me so sad. Im happy that they are moving so her hubby can finish school and hopefully come down and teach here :) BUT. . we have both been on mat leave and being such domestic divas! we would even do our errands together. I wish we would have taken pictures of us do all our sewing projects together and crafts. this is a super old picture but i love it! THANKS for being such a great sister!
I dont know what i will do with all my time now? Maybe clean more :) i’ll miss ya lots!
