The simple adventures of a new mom:)

WOW!!!  The past 3 weeks have been a blur and full of many tears, emotions, and changes.  Our little man will be 3 weeks old tomorrow.  I still am getting used to the fact that Drew and I have someone else in the house and someone else to get ready and take care of!!  When we go places I almost feel like I need to turn around every second and make sure Cal has not disappeared.  He is such a gift from the Lord.  I can not believe Drew and I had any part in making him.  He looks just like Drew.  For those of you who have seen him you know it is true.  If he didn't have dark hair you might not even be able to tell I'm the mommy!  
My world has so been rocked the past few weeks.  Drew and I are very used to being by ourselves, going when we want to, etc.  I'm at home now and have a little 8 pound son that depends on me for his every need.  My life revolves around a 3 hour cycle of eat, waketime, sleep.  I have been sanctified so much these past 3 weeks...in fact probably more than I have been my whole entire life!!  I need Thee every hour has taken on a whole new meaning to me.  It would be impossible to wake up joyful at 3 a.m. for yet another feeding without the hope of our Lord.  He has been so good to me these past few weeks.  My prayer life has tripled.  My need of Him is ever before my face.  My sinfulness is way more evident.  My reliance upon Him has been sure.  So, I'm very thankful for motherhood.  I am falling more in love each day with the little one who is asleep right now.  And my Heavenly Father is ever before me teaching me how to do this.  I sit at His precious feet pleading for wisdom as His child as I take care of the child He has given me.  WOW!!! What an awesome 3 weeks.  God is so good and my son is so adorable!
