Just a quick update....had to document my first week back to work!!

* Monday... work out, quiet time, peaceful day preparing for working on Tuesday... packing diaper bags, pumping milk, trying on scrubs, writing out directions for daddy & gigi, visiting GiGi at the office to see where she and Barrett will spend most of their time, just living it up with my little guy, baby to bed, crying before bed because I was sad to leave Barrett for so many hours tomorrow, dinner with my raybo, then to bed early!

*Tuesday... up bright and early, going through the lists in my mind, kissing my boys about 20 million times, driving to work after 3 months and praying, working steadily all day, pumping x 3, catching up with my nurse friends, getting picture texts from GiGi, remembering how to chart, racing to get my boy... who looked much bigger after 14 hours, listening to all the things that he did GiGi all day, heading home to see my other boy, putting Barrett to bed, eating dinner at 9:30 pm, and finally hitting the hay! I must say that I totally felt uplifted with prayers throughout my day! Thank you to everyone that prayed for our family... God heard your prayers and His grace carried us in tender ways!

*Wednesday... leisurely morning with my precious boy, i think i just stared at him the whole morning, Aunt Kates came over for some "mommy helper" time, got the house straightened, laundry started, grabbed frozen yogurt (YUM), caregroup dinner and sweet fellowship, ray worked late again, baby to bed, whew!

* Thursday... ray was off, restful morning just hangin as a family, made breakfast, off to the Y pool, nap, off to integrity softball game, chatted with friends, enjoyed the night air, uncle kyle spent the night, baby to bed, whew!

* Friday... woke up to a happy baby cooung (which honestly is just about every morning!!), baby's morning nap, mommy cleaned and of coarse had to catch up on facebook (ha), bath-time, chiropractor, goodwill, chatting with one of besties, lunch with a friend and her son, calm evening, ray's working late AGAIN, and i'm learning to be content....

* Tonight... marks my first night shift... so i would appreciate any prayers before you go to bed! :) pray specifically for ray and barrett's first night together! i know they will do GREAT! Ray is excited about some "guy time." haha :) love my boys and feeling wave upon wave of grace!

Philippians 4:11-13

I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do everything through him who gives me strength.

Thanks for your prayers mimi.. tonight was much harder for me. It broke my heart to say goodbye to him when I left :( I am just taking it one hour at a time. Ray just texted me a little bit ago that he was finally asleep. It will hopefully go by fast... :)
