75 Absent Minded Days

I am going to excuse myself from giving false information because my brain shrank during the pregnancy, or maybe I am just a little crazy! I don't know how I counted wrong! Anyways, today Magdalena is 75 days old, and on Wednesday she will be 11 weeks! Yay!

Since Saturday Noah and I knew that Magdalena was going to need some special help to feel better. Also, we were uncertain if her problem was only a cold or if her heart problem was beginning to show. So we began to take turns staying awake to hold her. Usually I take a good nap and wake up about midnight when Noah goes to bed for the night. Then, on days when he doesn't have class until later I may go back to bed for another nap. However, tomorrow will be the first day that I won't be able to take that second nap, but I am sure that it will be fine. My body is beginning to adjust to the change, and also, nothing like a STRONG cup of coffee to keep you going.

Magdalena has practically stopped coughing in the last few days and her snot has lessened, and maybe this week we can get back on our old routine of sleeping at night. I have really enjoyed being up with her at night. Although she sleeps most of the time, while I am holding her it has given me great time to really read God's word and afterwards a good book, like Harry Potter.

Well, I am off to bed for now. Thanks so much for your continual prayers.
