The Home Stretch...

I am once again a creature of the night. I just finished week three of four on my second (and final) nights rotation of intern year. It is hard to believe that one year ago we were just moving down to North Carolina, and in a few more weeks I will be a second year resident. It has been a difficult year to say the least. As always, I am amazed at how much I have learned. I think, over the last few weeks, I have felt more like a legit doctor than ever, and it feels great.

When it's almost second year, you postpartum round like a BOSS!


I must admit, I am definitely feeling emotionally, mentally, and physically fatigued. I have done little to nothing in the self care department. On May 1, I finally decided to stop eating all the junk that has led to my intern year weight gain. I refuse to look like what I am going through...ugh

The littles are doing great! Per usual.



Natey graduated from kindergarten last week. Being on nights finally was a plus and I got to go to his award ceremony. I was beaming when he was presented with the Principal's award for all A's all year, excellence in music, excellence in technology, excellence in Bible verses, and excellence in math.*** his most recent accomplishment, besides growing up too fast, is riding a bike without training wheels! I feel like just yesterday he and I were best buddies in Indy - me studying for the MCAT and he, a sleeping baby, laying in the middle of my books.



Isabelle continues to blossom. When I am on nights, I really do not see the family from Monday-Thursday, and when I finally see her again she seems so much older. She is definitely in that in-between-baby-and-wants-to-be-big phase that involves lots of crying and fall-outs, but she is also so sweet! I love to hear her try out new words, or when she does her big-eyed "I'm so excited!" Pure joy.

 


My little brother graduated from college this month so had a *really* quick getaway back home to Indiana, and it was great to see my fam. We hadn't all been together since my med school graduation. It was so great to have that time together and hopefully, once second year comes along, I can do it more than once a year :-/ 




We spent Easter weekend in Wilmington, NC. It is a little piece of heaven only 2.5 hours away by car. I absolutely love being by the water. It was the perfect recharge to get me through this last leg of the year....

 






Well, I think that's all of an update I have for now! xoxo
