The NFL draft always makes me look forward to football season. It’s the one bit of football talk I get until fall, and it just gets me excited. Plus, Kyle Fuller got drafted number 14 overall! Love my Hokies.
Abbie scraped up her knee for the first time yesterday – just fell on the sidewalk. Knowing her, it’s the first of many…she definitely likes to be independent and has a mind of her own! She handled it so well and only cried for a minute or so, then sat quietly while I cleaned her up. I’m so proud of my brave girl.
I’m struggling a little bit with my May fit goal of only eating sweets I make…basically, it’s not working. The cake I made for Sunday’s baby shower probably didn’t help! I may switch my focus to just limiting my sweets so I can still have some, but not as much as when I binge on them.
This weekend is the first weekend in weeks that we don’t have to do anything major. No traveling, no showers, just a normal weekend of relaxing and Abbie’s swim class on Saturday. I’m really looking forward to having a little bit of a break before the summer craziness begins.
My heart’s been a bit heavy this week. I’ve heard so many tragic stories of parents losing their kids. My friends Matt and Alyssa lost their son Micah to trisomy 18. Teddy Fish lost his battle with Menkes, Ryan Saldana was killed in a tragic accident. None of these parents should be losing their children. I’ve been hugging and kissing Abbie so much more than usual this week. I’m so thankful to have her and I hope she knows just how much I love and adore her. I can’t even imagine the pain these families are going through. #micahsfight #teamteddy #redballoonsforryan
I’m hoping this weekend helps my spirits lift a little bit and I can just enjoy some family time. I hope you do the same.
