It's November again, so I will start my 30 days of Thankfulness. Each day this month I will write about something I am thankful for. Check back often to see how truly good we have it, in spite of challenging circumstances. And I would love to see in the comments section what you're thankful for each day!!
Today I am thankful for my health. After having Ezra, I was a little slow to recover...or at least it felt that way! I couldn't really help take care of Sadie at all, and then I was told that even the little bit that I was doing was too much, and to stop. It was so hard not to be able to lift her, get her to therapy, help change her diaper, anything.
And I know, I'm only like 2.5 weeks post partum, but my recovery is SO.MUCH.BETTER. And I am thankful that I can help out again, and lift my girl and snuggle her.
But, she is so big, and she's only going to get bigger. So, I am thankful that Brian and I are strong and don't have any major back issues (yet). We are both healthy and will hopefully be able to lift Sadie for many years to come!
Do you have a child who can't walk? Do you struggle to lift and carry and transport your child? What do you do for help? Do you have a plan in place for when your child gets too big to carry?
