On April 30th I went to AZ to stay with my sister Geneva for a month and help with a her new baby. Sweet baby Miles came on May 2nd. Many of you probably know I've got some health issues that make getting pregnant a challenge. As any one who has struggled with infertility knows it kinda messes with you head. Thoughts like this start to freak you out: "Maybe I can't have a baby because Heavenly Father knows I'll be a terrible mom." or perhaps "I need so much sleep I wouldn't be able to cope with having a kid and that's why I can't get pregnant." You know all of those things that Satan puts into your head when you're unsure about life.
Well thanks to my lovely sister I got to play mommy for a few weeks. And it was AWESOME. I mean I already knew I loved kids but it was so fun. Granted, I didn't have to wake up with baby Miles every hour or two but I got to play with J all day and cuddle a squishy new born. It was fun to play in the sprinklers outside and dance to Aristocats. And a beautiful little two year saying "I love you Eena?" What more do I need in life? An amazing shopping trip with Alicia? Check. Time with Ellie and Benji? Check. I briefly got to see my brothers and their families which was lots of fun. Another high point was being able to get together with my childhood best friends for Vanessa's birthday. It's amazing how easy it is to connect with old friends.
By week two I was starting to miss my husband and he was missing me. If I could have convinced him to come visit I probably would have lasted the whole month but Aaron hates AZ in May so I came back home early.
