6 weeks down.

Since you've been gone...

Charlotte: She has been such a spunky little girl this last week. Trying to joke around with me to get me to laugh... being goofy so that her sister laughs at her... and making animal noises so that her brother laughs at her. She has definitely turned a leaf, from her naughty self. We've been praying together... A LOT... and I think that did just the trick. Scratch that, I KNOW that did just the trick. She's been such a joy, that I've decided to surprise her with an outing to the movies this week... "The Penguins of Madagascar" is out, and looks too funny. She's been riding around on her scooter a lot... now that she's not afraid to balance herself on it. The scooter is totally going to have her confident soon to try out balancing on her bike... I just know it!

Marley: This girl has been crazy this week. If she's not constantly eating, she's a beast... hangry doesn't truly describe it. I think it's a growth spurt... Just this morning, I saw her munching on second breakfast (blueberry pancake crumbs on the floor) and well, I found her snacking on a day old hard as a rock cheesestick the other day. She's figured out how to open the snack drawer on the fridge... pulls it open, and says, "I wan dat!", while pointing to whatever it is that she wants. She knows where I hide all of the snacks in the diaper bag and pulls them out when she's hungry.

Finn: For awhile this little guy was giving me no sleep at night... 3 days in a row to be exact... nursing NONSTOP... he must be following in Marley's foot steps and growing as well. It was EXHAUSTING... like her reverted back to his newborn days. Thankfully he's back to his normal routine and schedule, the last 2 days. So thankful. He lights up my life honey... he is a little YOU, with my ears. I look at him, and say, "You are your Daddy... you're a mini him" and he smiles SO big, like he's telling me, "yeah, you're right... ha!" His eyebrows are becoming expressive, and he talks a lot... I thought he was going to be the quiet one, but it looks like we won't have any of those in our family.

Me: Other than my 3 days without showering... this week wasn't too bad. It totally flew by... hence why I didn't shower, not because I was in a funk. I've been missing evenings with you... and so I pretty much head right to bed when Finn goes to sleep. It's sad, but feels good for the body at the same time. We've been trying to go on a lot of walks lately... maybe it's because we've eaten so many sweets lately, and I feel like we have to! But it's been great for everyone's well being, more so mine. It just... feels good. This week, with Finn wanting to nurse a lot, forced me to SLOW DOWN a bunch.  Even though I couldn't stand it at the time, so glad that it happened... I needed it, and didn't even know that. I've had to tell myself a lot this week, "I'm not able to do it all, and that's okay."

Story of the Week: So, I learned a valuable lesson this week. Once the clothes is dried in the dryer... fold it immediately, and put it away. Why you ask? Because if I don't, Marley will pull the clean clothes out of the dryer, and immediately start shoving it in Runyan's litterbox. Yup... this might have happened on more than one occasion... like I would have learned my lesson or something. And, Runyan's litterbox had not been cleaned out for awhile...

Pin It!
