Porter: Your Thirty Third Week

Friday, August 16, 2013


I'm had a really hard time thinking about leaving you for Vegas. Like, I thought about it non-stop. I really don't know how it's going to be possible, but I know it's something that we need to do. A vacation is urgent for your dad and I, but mostly your dad... he works so hard, non-stop, at church. It's his job and his heart beyond the 9-5 office hours, so it leaves little time for much else. 

He needs to recharge. And if I'm being honest, I do too. I need to spend time with him. I know someday you'll completely understand, and luckily, you have a family here at home that was beyond excited to be spending some time with you. And, you are obsessed with your cousins... so I'm not sure you even noticed.


Coming home was so fun. We decided to fly out of Bellingham, because it was cheaper. It was a great idea for the flight down, but not to smart on the trip home. We flew in Friday evening, and traffic was AWEFUL. We crawled home. I was ready to get out of the car and start running. All I wanted to do was see your precious face!

It was a sweet homecoming. We left Monday morning, and flew in Friday afternoon. I don't think we've left your side since.



As you can see, we fed you lime this week, too. That was really fun. You actually loved it, despite what the picture may portray. I love being a mommy for lots of reasons, but this is one of them -- I get to do things like this, just for a great photo opp.

You have a total of three teeth right now. Both of your bottom teeth, and your upper right. I know the upper left is just micro inches from breaking through, and it couldn't happen soon enough.

Better update next week... I hardly spent any time with you this week! :'(
