After an appointment we were all hungry and dressed up (not in sweats!) so we went out to lunch. Addison is still busy as ever when we go out to eat and mostly picks at her food. Avery snoozed away in her seat like a good girl. I can't believe how different I am feeling this time around with my recovery. There are new aspects I am dealing with, but overall I am feeling pretty good (minus the no sleep). I thank my Heavenly Father every night that I was able to carry a baby and that she's beautiful and happy. I feel like my testimony of faith and prayer has been strengthened ten fold during my pregnancy with Avery and her delivery/recovery. The Lord truly doesn't give us more than we can handle and gives us the helping hands with we feel like it is. I look back at the first 4 months of being pregnant and then Dave leaving the last month and think I survived! I'm stronger than I thought and I have been very grateful for my supportive husband and family who has helped me through all of this. I just need to remember these feelings when Avery won't go to sleep and I'm crying my eyes out in my pillow!
