So Laurie, since you might be the only person who regularly checks this blog ill just chat with you a minute. Wow, pregnancy, babies, sure takes it out of ya! Never in a million years I would have guessed this would be this hard! I feel like I should be good at it by now. I see how I can actually survive on less sleep. But then I get mad my house is a complete disaster and my children won't clean it up how I want. Cant they just put things back exactly as I do? Then I see myself yelling at them that they aren't doing things the way I want them to. So I calm down, right. Because who needs to be wasting their energy yelling at them for something so trivial? Not me! Because I'm going to be up, awake from sleep in a tiny amount of time to nurse a baby back to sleep. I guess these kids put things into a better perspective for us if we just pay attention. Did I tell you when I pick the girls up from school, my home doesn't smell of fresh baked cookies or a healthy snack for my children to eat, no, most days the baby needs to be held while lainey is telling me her story from school, hadley handing me her papers, and link saying loudly, "i want cocoa!" I really never pictured having all kids need me at one time. It's crazy! I have to look back and laugh because when I'm in that moment I really want to cry. I hope baby O is sleeping good for you. I hope your pregnant body can survive a little longer. Just wanted to chat a bit. And here's a picture.
Palm trees at our neighborhood park. Pretty.
Little chubs, fast asleep. Might be my very favorite thing about being a mom.
