February at the O'Neill's



Sick Baby waiting at the Doctor's Office
 February was my all time low for number of posts- three! Yikes. As you might have read, I've struggled during this pregnancy with my thyroid, nausea well into the second trimester, and back issues.

Life just continues to get interesting ;). Last week S had a low grade fever and cough. By the third day, she was no longer interested in drinking anything or even playing. She just slept All. Day. Concerned, we took her to the ER. Come to find out the poor girl had RSV- every preemie mama's nightmare.

Praise God, at 19 months S is healthy enough that she wasn't even hospitalized, and is bouncing back quickly. For the last week, however, I haven't done much more than reading while rocking my needy, sick baby in the rocking chair.

I'm thankful that she's an only child {for now} and that I was able to accommodate her. I'm thankful for the opportunity God gave me to slow down and rest. And I'm thankful she is on the mend!

Enjoying First Bites of Food in a Week- Poor Sick Girl!
Heading into March, I am just {still}trying to catch up on housework and life in general. I have yet to accomplish any of my goal projects for 2013, *sigh*. But I have read a lot! here's a peek at what I've been dabbling in lately:

Shepherding a Child's Heart by Tedd Tripp. This must-read for every Christian parent has completely lived up to my expectations thus far! I've been forced to examine my goals, motivation, and purpose behind how I parent. Tedd Tripp is fleshing out for me how the Gospel impacts every facet of my parenting. SO GOOD!

Natural Childbirth After Cesarean by Karis Crawford and Johanne Walters. My favorite doula on earth passed this title along to me. I appreciate that it is geared towards hospital births, as being a high risk patient, its my birth locale of default ;). Loving the birth stories, and encouraged to try again for an all natural delivery with this baby!

Abortion: A Rational Look at an Emotional Issue by R.C. Sproul. My husband found the Kindle version of this for free one day :). I've enjoyed his thoughtful and philosophical look, presenting both a scientific and Biblical approach to an issue very near to my heart.

What have you been reading lately? How was February at your house?
