Going home, growing, and PEACE!

Well we are going home today, to my house that this. I've spent a lot of time this week over there cleaning and getting it ready. I didn't really have the time or energy to "nest" before Mason got here, so I've been in overdrive somewhat getting everything ready to go home. It's been nice being at my parents house. My mom would get up with Mason during the night too, so I wouldn't have to do it all by myself and I could get some rest. We're going to spend our first night over there tonight and see how it goes, and then the kids will be home sometime tomorrow. I can't wait to see them, and hug them!!! It would be three weeks on sunday since they've been home. (I don't really count the couple of hours they were here last week) That is a long time!!!

Mason continues to grow and he is doing awesome! He's still pretty skinny, but he's getting a double chin already, and he's eating great, so I know he's okay. I haven't had any problems with him...he is just a great baby. We go to the doctor for his first baby checkup, so I am anxious to see how much weight he has gained and what the doctor says. To me, you can't tell that he looks or acts different than any other baby. I think the time in NICU just got him stronger and healthier. I can't get over how cute he is. We're having his pics done next week, so I will post them. He had changed so much already.

Other than that, life goes on as usual. It's been an interesting week for me. I've mentioned before that sometimes I feel like I live in the twillight zone. Well there have been a few occasions this week where I found myself there, but I think it's just all part of this process of me moving on. And I will have to say, how refreshing it is to have the confidence in knowing that God would never lead me somewhere to hurt me. I remember other times in my life when I questioned what God would want me to do, or if a situation I was experiencing was from God...but I have learned so much about the nature of God through this, that I don't question it anymore. I may not understand it, and I may not understand the role I am playing, but I do have full faith that God is with me and would never leave me or forsake me...and furthermore has a great future for me. That gives my heart such wonderful peace. I hope you all have a great weekend!

Hey Larissa,
I totally identify with the whole last paragraph that you wrote, I feel exactly the same way. At times I feel like I am def in the twilight zone.
I am so grateful I did not have to go through this when my kids were little, and I hate that you have to but you are the better person and he def does not deserve you.
I pray for you all the time.
Blessings to you and your babies.

So well put. I can completely relate to your last paragraph. You have grown so much through this process and you are correct...He has something great for both of us.

Enjoy those babies coming home.

Love, Lyndy

Isn't it amazing how great you feel after giving birth? You don't really realize how cruddy you felt during the last few weeks being prego until it's all over and you remember what normal feels like. (or as normal as adding another kid to your life can get)

Larissa - Thanks for the nice comment on my Guest Book post. Wish you'd have signed the book :o)
Anyway, I've been reading some of your posts. I looked on your "About Me" page for an e-mail address but didn't see one. Would you please e-mail me at with your e-mail address so I can drop you a note. Thanks.
God Bless,

Hey girl,
Yes, I'm still alive:)
Wow! It looks like you have so much going on. I have no excuse for not blogging. It was so much fun catching up on your world. Mason is are Madi & Kyle. I'm sure they are all wonderful! I am so glad Mason has not had any more complications. You look great, by the way!
I love what Neva wrote. Kids are so real! I love it:)
I won't stay out of the loop for so long again...I miss too much of the fun:)
Congrats on everything. You are in my prayers.

I'm assuming you're crazy busy, hence the lack of blogging. So...just wanted to say that I was thinking about you.
