weekly positives

Last week was awful and then ended with me getting sick. I'm just now starting to feel better. I still have pictures I need to share from our trip but I haven't been in the mood to upload and edit them. I might need a break from blogging. I know our families love to be able to keep up with what is going on with us and Elinor, maybe a couple of friends too.



Instead of going into what's going on and being negative, I'm going to take a tip from my sister... She told me she bought a journal to write down her positives of the week. We tend to dwell on the negatives and I don't want to sink into that with so much going on.

*Elinor started singing and acting out the itsy bitsy spider this week. I cried. Dave and I were sitting talking while she was playing in front of us. I realized what she was doing and tapped Dave to look. We tried to get videos but haven't been able to yet. She started head, shoulders, knees and toes too.

*Elinor also began singing a special family lullaby that my family sings. We call it the uh huh song. She was with Dave way passed nap time and started humming it to herself. Again, I cried. I've been singing it to her since she was born and it is so amazing that she is singing it to herself now.

*Dave took such great care of not only me being so sick but completely took over everything for Elinor. I didn't have to worry or remind him to do anything. I'm with her all day, all the time so I'm not sure if he would remember snacks/potty/etc. He never asked and she rarely cried for me (only when she wanted milk). I love that guy so much!

*Of course we are all still so happy we have been able to see so much of our family recently. We will see you soon Grandmom!

  2. I hope your week gets better Caitlin! You are right we always tend to focus on the negative, focusing on the positive is something I've been working on lately as we'll. We love hearing your Eli stories and keeping up with you and Dave! :) I hope you can catch Eli's song on video, we'd love to see/hear her :) We love you three so so much, lets FaceTime soon! :)
