(soaking in some sun in our backyard, after a hard morning potty training)
(the baby shower my friends threw for me this week, they went all-out. So nice of them!)
(Learning about the sensor on the nightlight... cover it with your nose, and it turns on! Magic!)
There have been a few highs and quite a few lows, and I'm sure my hormones haven't helped out anyone this week. It's been an emotionally, physically, and spiritually draining couple of weeks- which might explain the lack of posts.

On the other hand- when I step back and look around, things really are good. On my hardest days, my mom has been an angel and has stepped in with whatever we need, and I think we're getting to the end of the training (two and a half weeks later!) I've also been reading Happier at Home by Gretchen Rubin, and so far I'm really enjoying it. I haven't decided if I like it because of the actual ideas in the book (which are really good) or if it's just the effect of reading and thinking positive thoughts- either way, it's good to get a fresh perspective on life and all our blessings.
Looking back on this post, I don't feel like the pictures of the last couple weeks really match what I'm typing, but sometimes that's how life is, right? We record all the positive moments and try to just simply move past the rest. This is more of a personal post than I typically write, but I feel like I need to be honest about how hard life can be sometimes, even when it's really, really wonderful. Can you relate?
