At this point does anyone believe me when I say I'm going to be blogging 2-3 times a week again? Ha! I know I said that in my last post on the 11th. Life, man, what can I say? I've got a ton of back posts, but I'm going to just keep it simple today and start with....today.
As usual I had another sleepless night with Ava. Every night is consistently bad, but some are worse than others, The past two nights have been hard. Sleep deprivation has a way of playing with your head. I definitely get more emotional and easily agitated when I've had a rough night. I felt like I had a touch of the blues, but everything is wonderful. There is much to be happy about and I knew I needed to count my blessings. I thought that maybe a little beach therapy might help. There's something about the ocean that instantly makes you forget any troubles. I loaded up Ava and Mariam and we were at the beach by 9:30 am. It was actually my first time taking Ava by myself and it went surprisingly well. I wore her in my moby wrap and wore a backpack. I also brought a mini umbrella, so despite these pictures, she was otherwise shaded from the sun.
