I'm coming to grips with this "depression" stuff. I'm seeking a godly councilor who can just listen to me talk some things through. I'm learning to let go of my perfectionism. The Bible study that I'm in right now is so helpful. I need to learn that "perfectionists always fail." I can't be perfect, but I can be a good mom who does things with great love and devotion. Who needs that pressure? I'm just feeling more like myself. The fog is lifting a bit, and I'm feeling some joy again. I can laugh at myself again. I couldn't laugh for awhile. What is life without laughter?
On a lighter note, Kenly is getting so close to crawling that it makes my heart skip a beat every time she gets into position. This past Sunday she sat up in the crib for the first time. She cheated a bit though . The head of her bed is elevated, and she grabbed the bumper to pull herself up. But, I think that shows genius in and of itself. I have a little problem solver on my hands. She loves to play in the bath now. We've added a few bath toys, and she thinks that is oh so cool. Her favorite is a blue laundry scoop. At first I was grossed out when she would chew on her bath toys, but I just had to let go. If I tried to fight that battle, I'd be so defeated. Yesterday Kenly rode in the grocery cart at Food Lion. She looked so proud of herself the entire time. She loves to laugh and to play. Her personality shows more every day. She's laid back, but she gets bored easily. Woe to the person who makes her angry. She'll let you have an earful if you tick her off. Every day I am amazed at how she changes. I loves watching her discover her world.
Adam wanted to introduce Kenly to the joy of peaches. She loved them. She's like her daddy; she moans when she eats something good.
When we celebrated Adam's birthday, the princess got tired, so Adam tried to get her to take a nap in the woods. No such luck. There were too many cool things to see.
Hey good lookin'....What you got cookin'? This weekend I introduced Kenly to the joys of a pot and a spoon. We played for over an hour. This spoon is almost as big as she is.
A teaspoon was a little more her size, and it made a really cool noise.
