A quickie update

I spent what little "free time" I had today typing up Ben's birth story and doing some updates to the blog. Ben's story now has it's own tab! Also, I updated the bump watch photos to include the last few weeks of my pregnancy.

We are hanging in there. Ben is not a good sleeper, at all. In fact I would go so far as to say he is a horrible sleeper. Last night, for example, I slept from 10:45pm until 11:45pm and then not again until almost 6:30am. The nights are long and filled with fussy grunting, squirming, lame attempts at nursing, hours of burping and rocking. I am exhausted. Matt is exhausted from trying to work and take care of Lily full time. The cherry on top is that our allergies have been killing us, Lily included. There is nothing more sad than a bleary eyed toddler with a snotty nose crying to be held like a baby. Happy Saturday! :::sigh:::

Things will get better. I am completely head over heals in love with my children and so grateful that they are both healthy. All in all I am such a lucky mommy, just a little tired.

If you think my hands are full, you should see my heart.

Perfect in every way. 

I will, of course, type up and post Ben's birth story but for now a picture summary will have to do. I doubt I will get too many complaints. (Side note: This is my 100th post, which I thought was pretty cool)
