- I woke up in the middle of the night on Monday night with a Charlie horse so painful that I was certain I was going to die from it. I writhed in pain for a few seconds before frantically whispering Brian’s name and asking him to help me. Thankfully he was able to help me stretch out my foot and consequentially prevent my impending demise, but that didn’t stop him from laughing at me the next morning and accusing me of “thrashing around wildly” in the bed.
- This book came in the mail yesterday (pictured below)! It's called "Who's Who" and it's a children's book about twins... could it be any more perfect? A friend spotted it on Zulily recently and shared it with me, and I knew Colby and Clara had to have it (although admittedly I ended up getting it on Amazon because it was cheaper :)!
- Brian felt one of the babies move for the first time on Sunday! He was excited of course, but when I asked him if it felt like he expected it to feel, he said, “I’ve felt babies move before…” as if he was an OBGYN in a past life that I didn’t know about. When I inquired further, he reminded me that he was the mature age of 5 when his mom was pregnant with his little sister. Oh, SORRY, didn’t realize you retained that memory for 24 years. (But really, he was excited… I’m just giving him a hard time as usual.)
- As I was getting ready for work Monday morning and listening to the news coverage about the Sandy Hook shootings, my heart sank when I thought about the fact that it wasn't more than a few years ago that some of those parents were feeling their babies move for the first time, imagining what they would turn out like, and now their babies have been taken away from them.
However, I was reading a devotional that same night that talked about how no matter how much we love our children, God still loves them more. It was an encouragement to me in my current state of worry about our own babies, and I pray that it would be an encouragement to those parents as well. Even when God's plans don't make sense to us and we think we know better, God knows best and still loves them more. Rest in peace, little ones!
