A week ago, we celebrated Connor’s 9th birthday. That cute boy was just a tiny little 5 month old baby when I started blogging. (How the heck does time speed by so quickly?!?!) On the same day, we also celebrated Father’s Day AND Max had his Baby Blessing at our church (kind of like a baby dedication? or christening? or confirmation? I’m not sure which one is most similar…). It was a busy day, but such a sweet one. So many people to celebrate…..and I couldn’t help but think about how much our family is growing and changing.
I’ve actually had every intention of sharing so much more around here the past few weeks since Max has been born and is home from his NICU stay, but we’ve had some adjusting to do. And by we, I mean mostly me. Ha! That little Max has not been the best sleeper and is kind of a colicky little guy…..especially in the evenings. Chloe and Oliver were both AWESOME sleepers, so Max has been reminding me that not all babies start sleeping through the night super early and never fuss throughout the day. (I don’t know how I got so lucky with Chloe and Oliver!) So, I’ve been napping whenever I can….which means my normal creative time has been bumped. Darn. And you know, I am REALLY missing it. Spending time in my craft room and making things kind of rounds me out and helps me feel happy and complete.
But until I finish up some of the projects I’ve been working on (and am really excited to share)…..here’s a little peek into what’s been going on in this ol’ Johnston house!
First of all, when our babies are only a month or two old, they receive a special baby blessing at our church in front of the whole congregation. Like I mentioned above, it’s kinda like a baby dedication. Or confirmation maybe? (Someone school me on that!) And little 7 week old Max was awesome. Not one bit fussy during the whole thing. :)
