April Goals Recap: 

Welcome family and friends to meet Baby
- Read to Baby
- Pick out a birth announcement
I don't have it finalized, but I do have it narrowed down for B to vote
- Baby's Baptism 
- Say Serenity Prayer each day
I'm  back at square one in forming this habit after neglecting it most of the month. Newborns and prayers come down to, "Lord, help me!" and "Jesus, I trust in you."
- Soak up the smells, sounds, and feelings of our first weeks as a family
- Take a million pictures ;)

As you may notice from my list I learned the valuable lesson regarding the first few weeks (okay, maybe months, I'm still learning), caring for baby leaves little time for anything other than basic hygiene. It is also a time of being reminded of why you married your spouse. I've fallen in love with him all over again.

May Goals:

- Pick and send out birth announcements
- Thank you cards for baby gifts
- Remove snow snowed here in April and I had a newborn...but, yes, I'm mortified  this is on a list for May
- Organize our closet
- Set up a chiropractor appointment 
- Say Serenity Prayer each day

In keeping with my resolution to live 2016 in serenity, my focus is to share my top priorities on my to do list and to tackle this list with grit and a whole lot of grace. Please join us!
