A Month of Summer


Summer is one month old.

I had a moment yesterday. She was nursing really well (something we've been working on), and pressed right up against me while looking up into my eyes with her own beautiful, deep blue set. I sighed, lovingly, and smiled at her. I felt really connected, and not just because I literally was connected, but because I felt present and happy and peaceful. There haven't been a lot of present, happy, peaceful moments, so when I can grab one, I live in it.

A friend of mine has been helping me along as I work on finding a working balance between mothering four young kids in a home that's not mine and focusing intently on the nursing relationship with Summer. She is a PHN, but she also knows my life, my situation and my attitude towards most things parenting, so it's been a big breath of fresh air to have her guidance. Thank you Kathryn!

It's a busy week here: wedding preparation, closing our home purchase conditions, doctor's appointments, and the usual life stuff (walks, meals, skype and phone calls). I am glad for those quiet moments on the couch feeding Summer that require my undivided attention, giving me a pause to centre myself.

  1. It's nice that even though life is super busy you are able to find those quiet moments!
