September 11th.

So many people hurting today. I wish I could take their pain away for just one day, especially this day.

I was thinking about 11 years ago as I made breakfast this morning. I felt so silly all of the sudden about everything I was doing and thinking in life. How could I so easily forget the trauma, pain, and missing thousands are going through every day of the last 11 years? How could such little things in life feel so frustrating? Every day with loved ones is a gift, so many have lost that chance and would do anything, go through anything, to get it back.

I am feeling slow, intentional and emotional today. Praying for those who are hurting so much. I am so sorry you are hurting.

Ember is having a non-eating day again. I’m glad I produce enough milk to keep her weight up, to keep her from starving. The day my milk starts to wane and {hopefully} she loses interest in breastfeeding, I hope she eats more. I’ve tried every trick out there without consistent results. She eats when she wants to eat and doesn’t the rest of the time.

The weather. A subject to stay away from and yet, it dictates my day. Going outside has been so awful for so many months, this cooler weather (under 100!) is bliss. I am so anxious for winter, so happy it’s coming, so so glad summer is almost over for the year.

My kids are equally excited about the cooler weather.

The sprinklers had been on in the morning and the grass was still wet. It stuck to Ember’s feet quite a bit.

And she didn’t like that one bit.

Ember was pretty excited when she realized she could pull down her shirt.

She needs sleeves!

Ember is at such a fun age. She’s really curious and interested in everything. She plays with pretty much anything she can find in the house. It’s really cute as long as breakable stuff is put up high.

  • I can believe how big Ember is getting now. I still remember your posts from the week she was born (and before). Today is very bittersweet for me. It's my sons birthday. I try to celebrate his birthday in a happy and thankful way. I will never forget that day (I was a junior in high school) but I also have something that brings me so much happiness today. It's hard to seperate all the emotions.
