On My Own

After 3 wonderful weeks, my mom left today.  I can't even describe how much of a help she was here.  It was even better having her here when Nick left.  Now that they are both gone, I'm on my own!  The house seems so empty and quiet...well, sort of.  Now, I have a dog and a baby that both need my attention.  So, there are a lot of whines and cries in this house.  It's definitely an adjustment!  But I am SO thankful that we have such a good dog and a baby that sleeps well!

I am also thankful for the amazing support that we have!  It's comforting to know that we have so many people praying and supporting us, even if some are across the ocean.  As lonely as I feel sometimes, I know I am never alone in spirit.  We are so blessed!

Gpa and Gma Carney are coming to visit at the end of this month!  WHOOP!  I can't wait to see both of them and I can't wait for Sydney to meet them!  They will be here for a couple of weeks.  

Sydney is doing excellent!  She's growing so fast already!  Already a month old!  I'm looking forward to her next appointment to see just how much.  She gets more and more beautiful each day.  It's amazing how much your life changes when you become a parent.  Not only physically but emotionally.  She is fully dependent on me and it's very humbling.  She's so pure and innocent.  She is my world!  <3
