Simple Pleasures

Things are starting to get back to normal. Rachel and I are back from Arkansas and although it was a good trip to see close friends and family members, I know that we are both so glad to be home. I missed my husband during this trip more than I ever have before and I am not quite sure why. I mean, that certainly sounds rude doesn't it? I always miss him but this time was different. I guess it could have been because I was grieving the loss of my uncle or because Rachel is getting more and more active and hard to deal with by myself. Not sure but I made a point to tell him that I missed him and that I love him. Then today I was thinking....I wonder how often my husband actually feels DEEPLY loved by me. I devote majority of my time to our daughter and when I don't, I am cleaning or on the computer or working. I told him last night that it is easier to know what a good thing you have when you are away from them...I guess it brings the saying "absence makes the heart grow fonder" even closer to home. My husband is amazing! He's smart, funny, loving, a great father, a godly man, a wonderful teacher, and the list goes on and on and on!!! I just brag about my little girl on here constantly and realized that I haven't ever talked about the love of my life! We have been married for 3 1/2 years and I think I love him more everyday!

All right, I realize that most of you reading this are probably about to gag so I will change the subject! =) Had to go to the doctor today for Rachel again!!! Dr. Hull (who we ABSOLUTELY LOVE!!!) is getting some good money from the insurance company! I am glad that we don't have a limit to the number of visits. Rachel has pink eye! YIPPEE!!! So, I had to leave work early and now have to put antibiotic drops in her eye twice a day. I just had to laugh.....if it isn't one thing, it's another! She has started doing this new face's HILARIOUS!!! She likes to squish up her face and make her eyes really little and then open her eyes really big. The funny part of it is that when she opens her eyes really big, she does this funny little thing with her's a picture from the bathtub!

I was interested to read your blog. As a parent you may be interested in being part of a university study I'm involved with. It’s about how infants and children develop. It wouldn’t take much of your time, and it’s a great way to contribute to knowledge by reporting on your own experiences. For more details go to the following address after copying it into your browser window, or go to and click on "Baby Sleep." Best wishes, Rebecca
