Exhausted but Thankful...

Tomorrow starts my last run of nights for this rotation. I only have TEN days left in this block!! But who's counting ;-)

Some time along the way last week I delivered my 100th baby and I am currently savoring the last hours of my second day off in a row. The term "golden weekend" was referenced many times as I interviewed for residency and I now know how truly precious the time is. Hours worth their weight in gold...sheesh.

I am going to make an increased effort to get back to practicing gratitude and finding joy in every exhausting day. So here are a few things I am thankful for....

1. For the littles, who are wonderful and thriving.

2.  For their daddy who has been an amazing support for all of us. And also, who takes so many pictures of their daily adventures so I don't feel so left out...

3. For days off.

4. For coffee.

5. For sleep. Man, do I love my sleep...

6. For all my loved ones and friends who always check in on me even when they know I probably won't respond in a timely manner...Sorry everyone!

7. For my great coworkers, who are quickly becoming great friends...

Status Check...


Every time I sit down to write a post, I realize I would rather be playing with the kids...or sleeping.
But alas, I don't want to abandon my one hobby (lol), so here are some quick updates...

I am halfway done with my second block and I have delivered over 50 babies in four weeks. 

This includes a handful of c-sections as primary surgeon. Which feels pretty amazing!

The hours are bananas and I am SO tired. Like all. the. time. *yawn*

The children are wonderful

Natey started Kindergarten in mid-August. And he has since then lost both of his front teeth. I cannot deal with all this big kid stuff! What a difference a year makes...



Isabelle has developed a very independent and sassy personality. You can find her walking around the house pretending to talk on the phone, playing with her brother's toys, or standing in the window spying on the neighbors... 



I am still trying to find my balance in our new, intensely fast-paced life. It's so hard being away from the littles so much, but we are taking it a day at a time and trying to make the best of it. 

Thank you everyone for your prayers, emails, calls, texts, and posts checking on me. All of your love means so much, and I am going to do my best to post more regularly!
