It never stops

I may be alone in this but I sort of organize my life into big events. I focus my efforts onto a goal and do what I can to achieve it. While I am working towards that goal I feel like once it has been accomplished I will have a second to rest. These past two months I have had two goals. The first is getting ready for Gracie and the second was being accepted to med school. I thought that once I could check those off we would have a minute to rest.

Well it was pretty ridiculous to think that I would have more time to rest after I had a baby so I don't know what my thought process was there. With med school, however, I figured I got the acceptance letter and then I wouldn't have to sweat until classes started. I was wrong about that too. I am now trying to figure out how I am going to live for four years with zero income paying yearly tuition that is higher then my current yearly salary. It just never stops. I think I am starting to realize that I will always be busy, there will never be a point in my life where I have gotten everything done that I need to do. That is fine though, I know that Melanie and I can handle just about anything. Having little Gracie-pants is a good motivator and I am sure that everything will work out in the end.

And since I love pictures of my baby I thought I would post a few more.

You have to agree that she is one of the most lovable babies in the whole world

It is hard to see here but Grace is really cute in her blue ducky dress. This picture makes her look like she might be a red head, it would be fun if she ends up being one.

It never does stop because we are over achievers. But I think that is okay!

I didn't realize that you were blogging underneath that slideshow. Glad you are because before we know it that baby will be one and I will only have seen her three times.

She is adorable, you guys! It sounds like life is crazy for you. I wish I could say it gets less crazy... but it doesn't. Your family is beautiful. Give little Gracie some loves for me.

Hey Melanie! I am so excited to see how wonderful you are doing. Congratulations on everything. I can't remember the last time I saw you, it was a long time ago though. I have two kids and we live in Iowa while my husband goes to school. Check out my blog to see some pics. I am excited to keep in touch. Robyn
