There have been a lot of good things going on around here lately. 

~I started taking medication to combat this awful PPD.  There is only one you can take while nursing, and so far it seems to be really helping.  I no longer feel angry at the world and I can think much clearer.  I still get angry but I can deal with it in a much healthier way.  I should have done this a long time ago.

~Baby J is a happy baby.  In a months time he has learned to sit up, crawl on knees and hands, and pull himself up to standing position.  The kid wants to run and try to keep up with Superhero and Blondie.  Blondie walked at 9 months, and this boy may be following in her footsteps. 

~I have been walking the kids to and from school almost every day.  Not only does that save us gas, I get a total of four miles in walking every day.   (well, except for today because it was raining all day).  I need to work on abs, and do some lifting of weights, but walking four miles a day almost 5 days a week feels good.  I think it may be helping me lose this baby weight.  I am very very very slowly losing it. 

~My kids are in school!  Hooray!  Grocery shopping is less torture and more enjoyable.  Baby J has the possibility of an uninterrupted nap every day. 

~This may be a result of the medication, but I feel like I am finding my 'spot' at church.  Right now I only lead the music for Relief Society (the women's organization) but I feel more comfortable at church.  Also, some old friends moved here, and that has really helped.  They KNOW me.  I am also getting to know more people in the neighborhood, which makes me feel more comfortable about my kids being in it. 

Things aren't awesomely amazing.  But they are good.  Actually, they are better than they have been. 

I am grateful.

  1. Progress is always a good thing. It's like that movie "What About Bob?" with Richard Dreyfuss and Bill Murray ( Life is all about baby steps, eventually in small increments, it gets better when we make positive moves in our life. I'm proud of you for taking charge of your health and wellness and making small changes now that will have big impact later. Just keep following Baby J's lead; you guys can take baby steps together.
