August Currently

How is it already August?! It doesn't even feel like August in Texas right now. I'm from Dallas and the high today is 82. Umm say what?! I'll take it though! This has been the mildest summer we've had in FOREVER! And being full term pregnant for most of it, I gladly welcome it!

Well it's time for Farley's monthly currently. My favorite time of the month to update all my readers with what's going on in my life!

Well this currently is going to be ALL about our newest addition, Raegan Phair!! She was born July 26 at 2:36am weighing 8 pounds and 2.3 ounces and she was 21 1/2 inches long. We are so in love!!
Listening: it's what's playing in the NICU waiting room. Too tired to change it.

Loving: I can't believe the amount of love I feel for our sweet girl. I could stare at her all day and not get bored. For real!

Thinking: Our sweet girl was born with a cleft palate. Thankfully it very small and mostly on her soft palate (easier to fix). It will require surgery when she is around 3-4 months and again at 18 months, but we will deal with that later. Unfortunately, the cleft palate makes it very hard for Raegan to get a good suck so she struggles with eating. She is in the NICU learning to eat with a special kind of bottle, and until she learns and can sustain her weight, she is a on a feeding tube.

Wanting: This is pretty self explanatory. I'm a new mom. You do the math.

Needing: PRAYERS! Pray our sweet girl can learn how to eat from her special bottle, pray she starts gaining weight instead of losing it, and pray for Kyle and I. The hospital is about 45 minutes away from our house and the commute is hard. We are exhausted and just want our baby home with us!

This year I am not going back to school. I will be staying home with my sweet girl and I can't wait! Maybe one day I will go back, but for now, I am raising our family!

What are you up to?

  1. Congratulations!!! Enjoy every minute of her... I stayed home for 12 years and though it was hard to come back (same times as the cut backs) I will never regret it!! We are practically neighbors! I am in Wylie.. Do you know where that is? I teach 2nd grade. Isn't this weather THE BEST!!
