3 weeks and counting

Things I've learned in the last 3 weeks.....

  • Sleep is Essential, but not always necessary
  • Every single thing I eat effects Leia's tummy
  • Sometimes just handing the baby off to someone else magically makes the crying stop
  • Each baby is different
  • Water is essential AND necessary
  • Crying Babies tend to scratch their faces during their fits
  • Older siblings MUST HAVE your undivided attention
  • Crock pots are one of my favorite to the breast pump and DVR :)
  • Facebook helps me to still have somewhat of a social life...for now.
  • Diapers are not all created equal
  • The animators of Tom and Jerry are my heroes right now and my sanity savers!

Makes My Monday: Morning Nap time


The kiddos

The kiddos are growing up..and oh so FAST!

This momma is tired from just trying to keep up with them all.

I do have a 2nd string coming in to help. My mom and oldest sister, Tammie, arrive tomorrow from Florida. I'm so excited to see them...and to have some extra sets of arms to hold Leia, hug Lily, and help Dakota! not to mention, I'm eager to have my super organized sister, Tammie, coming...maybe she can help me get everything organized again! With 5 people living in a 2 bedroom house (til we get this garage finished...yes! we are still working on it. The overbearing Texas heat put everything on hold for a bit) can be somewhat cluttering.

Right now, I'm so happy that Leia--who partied ALL night--is taking her long morning nap. Mommy has lots to do to get ready for tomorrow's guests and today's schedule is quite busy. Parent Teacher Conference after lunch, Kota has early release today, Leia's 2 wk checkup at 3pm...and the list goes on!

So, my Monday maker....long morning me time to put my head on straight! :)

Ever since Leia was born...we have been trying to figure out who Leia favors more....and We are thinking that she looks like her brother.

What do you think?

It's Today

Today's the DAY!! and I'm wide awake. I should be sleeping or at least resting, but I can't seem to find sleep.

I have my bag packed...Leia's bag is packed...iPod is charged, cameras are ready to go...I just need it to be the right time to go.

I guess I should at least try to get some rest before all the "fun" starts. So, check back soon (well, later on today) and maybe Leia will already be here! ♥
