11 Days old…. not even 2 weeks yet
It’s a Saturday morning and I am feeling a little out of place – Needing to make sure you (and I) are ready for visitors today. It is feeling like a bit much emotionally, getting one’s self ready is a usual task, but now we both need getting ready – no lounging until whenever, or taking my time with getting everything done – we now have a time constraint and to be honest I don’t do well in this regard – the Lord is working with me on it. I am still very new at being a mommy and have no clue what I am doing or how to do things. Doesn’t matter how much one researches or amps up for something it seems like planning is a no go as a new mom LOL.
Your Aunty Cands and Uncle Cally arrived with gifts for you from them and from Nana and Oupa in KZN, kind of an extra baby shower…and first time your aunt and uncle get to see you. They are also bringing lunch…. mmmm
The gifts were lovely! More cute clothes, blanket, Snookums Breastmilk And Food Storage Tray (my favorite – google it, you will love them and use them plenty!) and I loved the cute little taglet security blanket.
Grandpappy and Grandmamma also arrived to come see you.
Even mommies friends, aunty Jackie and uncle David popped by at the fence – Covid lockdown rules still happening.
At least family were aloud in the complex under special circumstances (being you, little precious).
There were still some things we needed for you and so the Lord supplied through our family and friends.
I was feeling a bit emotional when everyone left…. I wanted my Marmi (your Oumi) who was trying to be respectful and give us space. She knows me so well, I would probably rather have just isolated us and chilled out. After seeing everyone I guess I felt like my Marmi should also pop in. Oumi rushed over at my phone call. That’s what moms do, no matter how old the child is. Having a little one of your own really makes you realize and understand what your parents must have gone though and how they really feel about you… I will do ANYTHING for you! Imagine how much more our Heavenly Father feels for us. Having you has enlightened that revelation in me too.
Your Dad and I will always be therefor you❣ We love you so much but Jesus loves you more than anyone can ever love you…remember that.
Bible verse s at the bottom of my book:
Psalm 30:2 Lord my God, I cried to you for help, and You restored my health.
Matthew 23:12 “Those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.”
