We've established that Megan is extremely social. I think we are going to start trying to have a weekly playgroup. She thrives on the interaction, and to be totally honest, I thrive on
1. the distraction (for Megan - it's hard being a constant entertainer)
2. time with other moms who are going through the same things
3. just knowing I'm not in this alone... (more on that at the end of the blog)
Here are some of our fun times together today.
Megan greeting Will - she's learning to be a good hostess.
Will checking out a toy - I can't believe how much he's grown - what a big boy sitting all by himself.The most common sight of the day... Megan and Nate hightailing it somewhere. Who ever started crawling first was the leader, at least until the other one caught up. We saw a lot of this view...
And we never really knew if they were coming or going or just passing under the table (also known as the fort).
Back to that - "knowing I'm not in this alone"... You know I have to say, being a mom is a hard job! Hats off to all my mommy friends who work and do this. I don't know how you do (although I'm sure it's nice to have some adult time each day). I love Megan and I love watching her grow and change... but at times it's so overwhelming. Everyday I ask - am I doing everything possible to help her live up to the potential that God has given her. That's a huge task. Tonight as I was singing her a little lullaby, I was reminded. She is God's first and mine second. All I can do is be a good steward. He is the one that will guide each and every step she makes. I think I'm going to need to be reminded of that a lot over the next 40 years or so.
