^^Riverbanks Zoo Pictures
I typically debate on posting on such personal matters, but I want to explain my radio silence over the past few weeks.
We’re currently having one of those seasons of life where things just don’t seem to be going right.
To start, two weeks ago I had a miscarriage. While I feel incredibly fortunate to have a wonderful son and husband, it has been hard to go through both mentally and physically. To make matters worse, George is currently dealing with his third double ear infection in the course of a few months, and this week he had a horrible allergic reaction to antibiotics that sent us all into panic mode. If this next round of antibiotics doesn’t work, we are facing the possibility of placing tubes in his ears. That is obviously something I don’t want my baby to go through, but we will cross that bridge if we get there.
With all that negatives, there are certainly so many beautiful things going on that are worth mentioning… One of my best friends just a had a beautiful baby boy, George learned what group hug means (and man is it sweet!), and my sister AND best friend got engaged – And so many other things. Maybe it’s important to allow ourselves to feel grief and sadness when we experience it, so that we may fully experience true blessings.
We took these pictures last weekend at the Riverbanks Zoo. It was our first time with George, and it was so exciting to see everything for the first time through his eyes! All of the sucky things going on lately have definitely put into perspective to me what is important, the health and happiness of my family.
(To all those ladies out there trying hard to get pregnant, or those dealing with not one but multiple miscarriages, I have so much respect and love for you!)
Thank you for stopping by!
