School is in Session

 

To update you all on the recent events in my life I’ll start off with the obvious (title). I’ve finally registered for my next semester of school and I am extremely excited and so ready. Who knows… Maybe I will be overloaded with anxiety, hustling through classes, and trying to squeeze those procrastinated exams in all while juggling work and a one-year-old, BUT as of right now I am completely and utterly content and happy that school is finally starting again for me. After this semester, I will have enough hours and credits to transfer to a university of my choosing (not sure about which one yet). I’m guess-timating that I will only have 2 years left until I receive my Masters. You read that right, only TWO MORE YEARS. I could literally squeal with excitement!

Moving on… Harper and I have adjusted to our new place with the exception of a couple boxes that still need unpacking, but all in all, everything is falling into place. We just got back from our mini-vacation and I am still finding sand.

Harper hit 19 months on the 12th and I still can’t believe she’s nearly two. Every time I look at her I still see the newborn baby that was the length of my forearm. On occasion, I look up and it seems she’s grown overnight, turning into a little girl instead of a baby. We had a little scare a couple of days ago when she started acting a little weird, a little extra clinging like she didn’t want me to put her down. So, I held her while I cooked, I held her while I worked, I held her through the dishes and the clothes. When it came to night time she felt a little hot, so I gave her some Tylenol as said by her doctor and went about my way as a free-handed Mama able to get things done. It was close to midnight when I went to check on her, her warm forehead turned into a hot stovetop. I immediately started to worry as I checked her temperature, it was a whopping 104.1 degrees. I took her straight to the emergency room and found that she had an upper respiratory infection. Talk about a scare. Whew, to be a mother, right? I think I grew at least three gray hairs from that night alone. Haha.

She’s doing a lot better, wrestling with me and cracking up at silly things. I have such a blessed life and I am so blessed to be the Mama to the most beautiful little girl.

Thank you all for your continuous support and love,

Myah
