What’s Cookin’ This Week

Today has been pretty smooth. Elijah seemed a little ill this morning, but is acting normal now. I guess he was right yesterday. He’s hard to read. He sees someone else get medicine and thinks it’s a treat sometimes, so when he was saying that he needed medicine, but looked fine, acted normal, ate well…it…

Art Felt Words

I took the boys to see Big Hero 6 yesterday, and it’s Isaac’s new favorite movie. He’s drawn a really cute Christmas scene with Baymax. The other guys loved it too and say we need to own it so we don’t have to go to the theater more to see it. I agree it was…

Dee Talks Diet

This is the follow-up to my “Journey to Heal My Thyroid”┬áintro post, elaborating on my detox diet. In short, I don’t want to kill my thyroid until I’ve tried a holistic approach first. Dr. Wellness (my made-up name for the holistic practitioner I’m seeing) did a bunch of blood work, and more results are trickling…

23

The Lord is my Shepherd. He has provided.I bask in the wholeness of my family, drinking up my sons and finding in each a unique and intoxicating bouquet. Again I smell, kiss, envelop the child for whom I’ve trembled. He grows so strong, snuggled in his garments, the tightly-knitted prayers of a multitude. His laughter…

Wait Lifting

As I wait again in the family waiting area for a NICU surgery to wrap up, I’m reminded of the difficult lessons I’m learning. The first is patience. I’m learning that God has a timeline and I’m better off letting go of mine and embracing His. I have a matryoshka doll of “waits” bobbling in…

In Our Sleighday

I have approximately 8 weeks of pregnancy left. Yikes. I’m so anxious to meet our new little guy, but I keep reminding myself not to wish time away, because life is much simpler with him in my belly. Plus I’m trying to cram as much playtime in with the boys as I can before I…

A Tour of Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving!  I wish you all a day of good health, happiness and fellowship. I feel so blessed for the people in my life.  My husband is the most loving, dedicated man I could ever dream of.  He is my best friend, team mate and life partner.  My children bring me unsurpassable joy.  It’s hard…

Here we go a waffling

Today has been a fairly typical day.  I wake up to Isaac’s sweet voice on my right, going “broom broom BROOM!” I crack an eyelid, wondering as I do every morning in our blacked-out room, to what time they let me sleep.  Isaac is propped up on a pillow driving a monster truck. A few…
