Update 3/23/16

I have taken a break from blogging but now I'm back. I'm not on Facebook anymore - but will continue to post there to help everyone to be updated on Ryan.

Ryan, Talitha (4 yrs) and Joy (3 months) - Sunday at church 3/20/16
It's been four months (on the 27th) since I gave birth to that cute, chubby little baby. We have had our ups and downs, but for the most part, she's quite an easy kid - just like Talitha has been and continues to be.

Post-partum depression has hit me and although some days are better than others, I wish it were completely gone once and for all. It doesn't help that 5 friends have moved and the most recent one was a very close friend and neighbor. But I keep my eyes on the Lord, and look at my precious gifts from God and that lifts my spirits, for sure.

Talitha celebrated her 4th birthday and her first real one (since she's a Leap Year baby!) It was really fun, but I miss all the planning and people who were brought together. That same weekend we dedicated Joy to the Lord.

Baby Joy has been sleeping through the night since 3 weeks old, and starting rolling over on St. Patty's Day. But she joined the world lifting her head high and spent 4 hours of her first day awake! She definitely doesn't want to miss anything! She is such a sweet baby and we love her so much.

Lately, Ryan has told me he feels "almost normal" and that's such a blessing. I wish it could be that way always.

More to come later.
