On another note, for the first 7 weeks we were home both boys sleep all night, slept tight snuggled in with their blankets and each other. For the last week, Isaiah has been waking up in the night in sheer terror. He looks scared out of his little mind. I think he is having bad dreams ... by the looks of it, nightmares. The boys sleep together, so that makes for the three of us spending lots of time snuggling together in the middle of the night. Today, the boys slept for for 4 1/2 hours for their nap. They are tired, I am tired... but a sweet friend that stopped in today gently reminded me that "this too shall pass". I'm so thankful for friends! Now, after Isaac told me about the "Africa cookies" tonight I wonder, what do they remember from their short lives. What is my baby dreaming about? Til this passes, I'll lift him up to the one who knows all those answers and spend time in the middle of the night cuddling those little guys. I did have a chat with them today and told them that mommy is a much happier mommy with some sleep. We'll see if they understood that. :)
We went out for Pancakes at a pancake feed that my dad's work puts on every year. They snapped this picture after the girls had caught their cakes that they flip off the griddle high in the air and make you catch on your plate. Fun times. I wish Zachary would have been there with us, but this family is getting harder and harder to find all in the same place these days. He was on his way to play his first soccer scrimmage of the season.
I read this today... so fitting. A reminder to trust in the one who is indeed my strength. So thankful!
Psalm 28:7 -The LORD is my strength and my shield; My heart trusts in Him, and I am helped; Therefore my heart exults, And with my song I shall thank Him.
