Settling in at home

September 29, 2014

Sunday looks different now. Mass still at 7:30 a.m. but now followed by church class until 10:00 a.m. Max and I (and Elizabeth) opted to partake of the Sunday morning graces from home.

What a gift to have Aunt Jen and Julius come visit. Sweet Clare laughed so hard as Julius snuck in and played a bit of abbreviated hide and seek. Aunt Jenny is always so good to make her visits fun and memorable. The kids adore her and the loud raucous that is sure to follow in her presence. I hate we don’t see more of them during the week. This dang city of Atlanta is just too big for a quick get-together when you live 30+ miles from one another.

His Godparents were able to come over for a little introduction also. We’ve walked many years side-by-side and welcomed babies and life events and all kinds of things together. We are honored that they accepted the invitation to be Max’s godparents. We couldn’t be happier.

I can’t believe this picture. The older girls have been friends since before their first birthday and now there are so many more faces in this pictures of friends. I still need to photoshop in Elizabeth’s face. What a gift that after 10 years there are still memories to be made together!!

Michael loves holding his brother. He is truly in love. Brothers are the best, right? I’m so thankful he gets this opportunity and there is another baby in our house to teach us so much more about loving, living, and growing together as a family. Little Max is pretty special and is already touching each of us in different ways.

Wide eyed and awake…Michael’s favorite time for snuggles.

I’m so thankful tomorrow is Monday AND Nate is home all week to spend this time with us. My recovery is going well, but I’m moving pretty slow for sure and taking it easy. There are a lot of physical limitations that catch me off guard, but it’s a time that won’t last long. Just trying to keep it in perspective, rest, and allow those around me who are able to assist. I’m thankful to have a houseful of help this week!!! To those reading this humble blog, hope your week goes well!!

Thank you to those who have offered to bring us meals. I’m so grateful!! For those who have requested the information, you can find the calendar HERE. Thank you to a sweet friend for setting it up on our behalf!
