Holding Hands

We played in the wading pool yesterday and Skunk was so cute. She got so excited about the squirrels in the yard and wanted to go and see them. She is toddling so much better that I offered her my hand and we walked across the yard. It is still easier to just pick her up and go but fun to hold her hand and walk in the grass. She loves to play in the water and splash and play with Bear. They had a great time. Today we baked and it got up to 87 in the hallway (bet it was 90 or more in the kitchen). Time will tell how things go tonight. She did ok this afternoon but was very screechy and hitting tonight. She went to bed in time for Bear and I to read a little while on the Silver Chair.
These girls are so precious.

Off to wash dishes and finish the laundry.

Why does this have to be so hard? I am trying to be thankful but every day is just hard. Crying, hitting, fussy girls (big and little) and the little one is constantly tired but can't sleep. I am so thankful to have them but every day is a struggle to survive. Father help me to walk and not faint. Be my strength in the night (and day)!

The Skunk is giving kisses. She is so sweet and loves to snuggle/pat and hug. On Monday, she started leaning over and giving sweet little kisses - not drool-y messes but sweet heart tugging kisses. I have cried multiple times each day as she just loves on me, Computer Man and Bear. What beautiful joy! Thank you God for the sweet times!

We went swimming again today. Bear and Skunk both love it so much. Bear is putting her face in the water and getting more and more comfortable. Skunk is splashing and loving just being in the water with me. Wears me out but they have so much fun! What a blessing this has turned out to be for us.

Nothing new

We continue to struggle and I am just trying to make my peace that we will continue for a long time. I am sad about the struggles but Skunk has happy times (Bear certainly didn't have many at this age) so I have things to be thankful for. I keep praying for a thankful heart but my heart keeps complaining and crying.
