Where do I go?

" Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,  for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life. Psalm 143:8

Most days I beg God to write out what I am to do. I want God to tell me where to go, how to act, what I should do each day. Basically - I'd really like to have an instructional manual. But I don't have one. I can pray and ask God to lead me. Then I can step back and trust Him to do so. I love this verse in Psalms. Because that is how we should start each new day. 

1-Listen and wait for God's love that never leaves nor fails us.
2-Trust Him with the day.
3-Ask Him to show us where to go.

Life is all about small steps and trusting. Trusting a God who is ALWAYS in control. 

Praying. Trusting. Listening. Resting in Him. Amen!

One month update!

I praise God that I have been able to nurse Selah. She is eating every 3-3 1/2 hours. She has had a few bottles and drinks about 4 oz.

I just weighed her and she is weighing in at 9 lbs 3 oz! Love my growing girl :)

Selah's day starts at 8 and she eats every three hours. So that's 8, 11, 2, 5, and 8. Then she wakes up sometime between 12-2 to eat. Hoping to get her sleeping more at night soon! Also, she doesn't really nap during the day. And she has a hard time getting to sleep. But she is a tummy sleeper for sure - she hates being swaddled.

Wake Time
She is typically up a lot during the day. Selah loves to look around at everything. She also likes moving a lot. She is not happy in one spot for very long. And she has already rolled over multiple times from her belly to her back. I think she will be an early crawler for sure!

She is wearing newborn size clothes. Now that she is 9 lbs everything is starting to fit better. She has a closet full of really cute clothes thanks to family and friends :)

Fun fact
Selah may look just like Finn but they are completely different. It's been a challenge to figure her out and I haven't yet. But we did have a one month photo shoot with Jason Pendley. Pictures coming soon!

I'm doing ok - it is very hard balancing the two. Finn is so emotionally demanding and Selah is so physically demanding. But I just haven't found my new normal yet. I'm trying to make the most of everyday because I want to enjoy these times. It is just hard, I am just being honest :) Pray for me!
