I just wanted to post this for the stats so I would remember Clay's growth. Yesterday at the doctors he weighed in at 10 pounds 1 ounces. He is 22 and half inches long. I can't believe how time flies. But then I said that about Lydia and Seth. Here is a recent picture of all of them. Lydia 5, Seth 3 and Clay 7 weeks.
Well I am sad to see summer go. Summer is my favorite season. I love the sun, the heat and swimming and just continually being outside. A lot happened for us this summer. We went on vacation in June with Joel's family were I struggled a little bit with contractions. I attended and helped with my first VBS at our church. Lydia loved it and can't wait for next year. Then we waited not so patiently to meet our little boy so we could finally tell people his name. We celebrated birthdays here at our house and with our friends. Then at the end of July we welcomed our new little son Clay into our family. Which takes us into the month of August were it was none stop action here. My mom and cousin Shawna came to visit to meet Clay and to help out around here. Then just as they left Mom and Dad L came to visit and meet Clay in person as well. Which bring us up to the last week in August where I started to learn what it was like to be by myself with 3 kids and homeschool. Sometimes my days just slip by me. I nurse, teach, clean, do laundry, go to bed and start the day all over again. It was nice to have a long holiday weekend to have Joel's help around here. I got to sleep in a little and we just enjoyed being together as a family of 5 now. This month of September I am sure will also float by me without me knowing it as this is also a busy month. But for now I will enjoy one day at a time.
