Life is a whirlwind

 Going from one baby to two babies has been an adjustment. I wouldn't say that is has been overly shocking. It is about as much work as I thought it was going to be. I don't think I had my self fooled into thinking it was easy. I know what I signed up for and it has been just that...a perfect combination of crazy and delightful!
I wouldn't trade this time for the world. Although my stance changes from 3-5 a.m.each morning.
 Emmi is 4 weeks and 1 day old. Things are feeling quite normal now, like she has always been here.
I am so very very thankful for both sets of parents who provide us with lots of love,support, and Elliott entertaining.
Helps keep me balanced and energized to do the job of raising my beautiful daughters.

My husband is absolutely amazing at both parenting and husbanding. He gives me as much time to myself as he can. It's amazing how a few hours out every few days can recharge me.
And of course he "supports"(and I use that term loosely)my shopping habits.

I would be lying if I said that getting ready and out of the house with 2 little ones is easy. It is not.
It really really is not.
In fact, it's the one part of this life change that intimidates me.
By the time I have myself and them ready and heading to the car, I'm usually late and so frustrated I could scream.
And I am very tempted to just stay home at that point.

But I persevere.
I persevere because getting out is good for me and for my sweet toddler. Elliott is a social girl and I don't like her to have to stay home too many days in a row without at least getting to the park or something!

Life is good. The adjustment has been quite smooth considering the enormousness of it.


  1. I'd have to say it still feels pretty blurry to me. And for the record I support your shopping habit in the most relevant way possible - financially!

  2. You guys are doing an amazing job! Love my little girlie angels:)
