Crazy Busy

I am officially a stay at home mom whose only responsibilities are her kids and family. To be honest the thought of being a stay at home mom scares me to death. I don't really know why, maybe its because I've always worked since I was 16 or its because I'm scared I'll fail as a mother, or any of another million reasons...
Life has been very hectic--we packed and moved on Wednesday and Thursday, I officially was terminated from my job on Friday, and we have since been trying to settle in to our new apartment. I'm hoping that within the next few weeks I'll be able to plan out a good schedule where my day is all mapped out so that I will be more productive with Morgan. I'm hoping to start a little preschool type lesson with her daily so she can start working on her numbers and colors more.

As for Grace she is doing well---this week has been quite eventful for her too. She now weighs 10lbs 9oz (a gain of 4oz in a week!) She is finally off of methadone, she got her last dose yesterday morning and though it was such a minute amount she seems to be having withdrawals. And to top it off she cut a tooth!! Yes at four months she cut a tooth, poor thing. Its kind of funny because she was trying to chew on her hand, but other than that there were no other signs--then Jason called me to look in her mouth because he thought he saw a tooth and sure enough she did!

No worries! You are such a good mother, and will continue to be even being at home all day long. I am so glad that grace is doing so well. We pray for all of our heart babies every night. Much love, Hilary Cook

Deanna, I am glad you finally get to stay home full time with your little ones. I need to get your new number so that we can stay in touch.

Wow. 10lb 9oz and a tooth. She is growing up. :) Welcome to the stay at home mom club. It was hard for me at first too, but so worth it.

Your family is always in our prayers and we keep Grace's name on the prayer roll at the Salt Lake Temple (probably along with many people).

You are both doing a great job. Thank you.
