A Great Big Shout Out

I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of my wonderful friends and family (especially Jonathan!) for all of your love and support and prayers this past week. This has been a very emotional, stressful time for me. The Lion was very good last night, and I am holding my breath that he will be okay today, too.

One of the hardest parts has been admitting that I feel overwhelmed. There is such immense pressure on moms, I think, to appear as if they really, really have their s**t together--that they are composed, organized, multi-tasking wonderwomen--and I have to admit: I am none of the above right now!

If I could remember to put the cap back on the milk before sticking it back in the fridge, I would feel like I was in control again. If I could just comfort this one screaming baby I would feel like I could conquer the world.

Hallelujah!! I am so glad he finally had a good night.

I am so proud of you (but you already knew that :):))

Happy Easter!

Hey Erin, it's Kerri used to be Moore now Young (we have the same last name!)... found your blog through Amy's. Just wanted to tell you that I have been praying for you and baby Jack and Sadie (who are both beautiful, by the way) and Jonathan (who sounds wonderful) since I first read your blog a month or so ago. I so appreciate your honesty and admission that you don't "have it all together." No mom really does...if she says so, she is just lying. =) I will pray that Jack continues to have good nights and that you are able to get some much needed rest and find moments of joy in the midst of this stressful season! God Bless! And Happy Easter!

Thank you both so much for your love and support! I just started my meds today. I hope they kick in quickly!

Kerri, I am so grateful to you for all of your prayers... it's funny, I have been reading your blog (and Kelly's, too) ever since I began reading Amy's! Your daughter is so beautiful--such gorgeous eyes!--and I was so happy that you all made it through the storm safely! I also loved the pictures and news of Micah. I am so happy for Scott and Amelia!

Thank you for letting me know I am in your thoughts. I feel so incredibly blessed to have such wonderful (and Understanding!) friends...
