i seem to have been counting my days one smile at a time this past week. each one brings a little more healing. jackson makes it easier... his nap was pretty long yesterday and this is what i saw when i snuck in to check on him. it can't get much cuter than this... poor tigger is a bit smushed. don't ask me how he got so big (jack, not tigger)... it happens overnight. he wakes a new kid every morning!
we bought a hanging plant a little while back that i've been working hard to keep alive in the texas heat. i was sad because all the flowers were pretty much dead, but all of the sudden there seem to be new buds all over it and when i took it down to water it yesterday this is what i found. something about this gave me a tinie tiny bit of hope that i've been needing lately.
