Well, hi again.
For anyone that still might read this, thanks for visiting and even more, thanks for your patience. There are lots of excuses for me not writing recently, but they are just that, excuses. I’ve missed doing this and will pick up where I left off this week.
I know I left a cliff-hanger on my last post of when my wife and I fell in love. This will be resolved, and soon, I promise. Just know that the story is a good one, and yes, you guessed it, we fall in love in the ‘end’.
October was a pretty crazy month and, if I’m honest, I’m not sad to see it go. However, we did get some great time with LA’s mom and my parents. LA’s mom came out for the first two weeks of October and then my parents came out during the third. This helped my wife and me get used to her going back to work again. She started back teaching on October 1, and it has been… well, suffice it to say, it has been a ride for sure. This might be the toughest class she has had in her 7+ years as an educator (I think I got that number right). Now, we’re on our own again. Baby boy is in daycare, and, that wasn’t as hard as we thought it would be. Yes, there has been a significant learning curve as far as his sleeping schedule goes, but we’re incredibly grateful for the Christian ladies who love on him and take such good care of him each day.
Now… Isaac… I mean, it’s crazy. You hear about babies growing up fast, but it’s all too real. When I look back at pictures of him, I’m staggered. He’s like a new human every week. It seems like yesterday when we brought him home, and now, suddenly, he’s rolling over and sitting up on his own. Tomorrow I’ll probably be handing him the car keys. It’s truly wild. I feel like to most blessed man in the world. I really love being a dad, far more than I expected.
So much respect to single parents… I don’t know how you do it. My brain would have gone screaming into the night a long time ago. I truly admire you. And, it makes me so thankful for my wife. She works so hard as a mom and is so loving, kind and patient towards him, and me. I’ve seen such selflessness and love from her towards our son.. it encourages me to be a better man. For all of you who will get married someday, I hope that you find a spouse that’s half as amazing as she is, you’ll be blessed.
Anyway, that’s a brief catch up of what’s going on here. My goal for this week is to blog every day. Need to ‘shock the system’ into getting back into this again. There, now that I’ve said it, that will help me to do it…. I hope.
Thanks for sticking with me this far friends. Be blessed and I’ll write at you again soon.
