The adrenaline has run out

I'm pretty sure I was running on pure adrenaline the first two weeks of Jonas's life. I'm so glad I was able to enjoy those two weeks as much as I did.

But the sleep deprivation has now kicked in. I won't drone on and on about it, because it just comes with the territory, and I know that.

John and I are working together to develop and sharpen our zone defense strategy, 3 on 2, and most days come away feeling somewhat successful. We even made it to church on time all by ourselves this past Sunday! Not only that, but I dropped John off at the building early for worship team rehearsal and all three kids and I went to Starbucks. I was not about to give up that weekly treat! Plus Kreg had given me a Starbucks card for my birthday, and it really needed to be used.

John and I are officially in Danny's band, "Group Therapy." We're learning to play the congas and it's a little intimidating, but a whole lot of fun! We'll be at KE Cellars Saturday night from 6-9 pm for anyone that wants to check us out. As I've said before, I'm thankful that John and I have this outlet that we can enjoy as a couple.

And now I'll leave you with my three favorite pictures from the past week.

My sleeping sweetness!

Johnathan--the angelic look.

... and Kalleigh's sad face. I couldn't resist. :)

Absolutely adorable children! So far, Jonas isn't jumping out to me as looking strikingly like either sibling:) He's precious, though! And the picture of Jonathan looks as though it belongs in a childrens magazine. The shot of Kalleigh is priceless;) We are so blessed to live in the age of so much media to capture and share these beautiful moments. Thank you for sharing yours;)
Praying for rest for you (or at least lots of Starbucks!)

Love the photos!

Your children are adorable. Hang in there. I only had two children so I can't quite imagine how much harder it gets with two.

Vicky said...

I meant how much harder it gets with three. :)

Aunt Donna said...

I think Jonas looks a little like your baby pictures. I think it's that sweet little mouth. :)

Deborah said...

Those pictures are precious. Jonas looks so much like Johnathan to me.

I've been wondering how you've been doing lately. Glad to see you're still surviving. :) We've got the lack of sleep thing going pretty strong over here, too, so I can only imagine how it is with 3 kids! Drink some Starbucks for me!

You're doing it! -- with prayer, lots of planning, and Starbucks! Way to go!
