1. depression- yes, I said it... DEPRESSION! geez... of course I would get that! haha... It took almost 3 weeks for my depression to go away. I didn't really know that is what I had until I had a good long talk with my dearest friends Rachel and Meredith and my wise mother. I wasn't really feeling sad, more just like extreme fatigue and I was very weepy all the time. Finally when I was able to call it what it was (on a Sunday), I decided I would call my doctor the next day when his practice opened. I woke up on Monday morning and felt 100% better! I am sure that was due to a bunch of factors put together: prayer, being honest, 3 weeks almost passing by, and lots of loving on from friends and family. But I am happy to report that I am SO much better! I don't feel near as tired and nothing gloomy at all! Yay! And for the record... I didn't have any ill thoughts about Eli or anything else. It seems like when you hear about postpartum depression everyone freaks and thinks you're going to hurt your baby. Not all people are like that ok! :)
2. friends- I have had so many sweet friends come to visit! Meredith, Rachel, Adrienne, Jourdan, and most recently Kelli who flew all the way from Amarillo! Thank you guys SO MUCH for coming over! I love having good friends over that I don't have to entertain or feel like I can't be totally me. So I've been surrounded by friends and family and haven't had the time to blog!
3. I don't really have another reason... but it seems people always list in threes. :)
I'm back! Yay! --- These pictures of him in the swing are from today! SO cute!

Here is Eli sleeping... like you didn't know... but isn't he so angelic?
