Around the same time I think Hannah was having a growth spurt. She had about a week or so when she was up five or six times a night either to eat or needing help getting back to sleep. She is normally up only once, so I was feeling like a walking zombie. We ended up upping her bottle ounces at daycare and I let her nurse on demand during the growth spurt. She has also seemed to level out now and is back to being up only once, thank goodness!
Even though both of these situations above really are minor in the big scheme of things, they definitely felt all consuming at the time. It can be easy to let these small things become big, I'm reminded of Ecclesiastes 3, where we are told there is a time for everything. If we didn't have times that were difficult, we wouldn't appreciate or recognize when time were good. "He has made everything beautiful in its time. Also, he has put eternity in man's heart." So, when times get tough, it's then we should remember the good we have and the eternal place God has set aside for each of us who believes in him. After all, this life her really is only a moment in the realm of eternity. Why let ourselves in bogged down in the small things.
I mentioned last week how much I'm loving my kick crops in red, so when I realized they came in white (off white, really) and were on sale for 40% off I knew I needed the white kick crops too. I kept this outfit pretty easy and added this top from Target I've had for three years or so. It's one of my summer favorites, and I adore the print! I love this one and it's on super sale right now too!
Unfortunately, after washing these pants they wrinkled terribly and I literally spent a half hour trying to iron them to no avail. I ended up returning them on Monday and am so disappointed. The red and black have been washing and ironing up really well, so I'm not sure what the probablem was with the white. Now I'm on the hunt for another pair, such a bummer.
