Life is just beautiful.
I absolutely love our life.
I have a great husband who loves me and takes awesome care of his family...
AND cooks dinner and makes sure I have everything I need.
We have two absolutely fabulous girls.
There's not much else to say about that except they are truly delightful.
Having our family together has been just unbelievable.
I am totally not ready to go at this on my own quite yet, however.
From feeding to diaper changes to simply getting from one room to another.
Forget about getting out of the house...
Just the schematics of getting the girls to the car safely is a challenge.
Everything takes serious planning.
Example: This morning I had planned on trying to go it alone to see what my mornings would be like. I woke up with plenty of time. Chloe gets up about 7 and I woke at 6. I could totally handle this. I would simply give Lauren a bottle, pump, hop in the shower, take Lauren downstairs and then go back for Chloe.
Lauren started to stir a little after 6 so I fixed her a bottle. So far so good. Then, she burped and threw me a curve ball by returning all her breakfast. ALL of it. Now I need to add laundry to my list of things to do. AND give Lauren another bottle. Chloe and I also need to be out of the door by 8:30 for our mommy & me class.
Needless to say I had to call for backup to take over and help with Lauren so I could get a shower and pump before getting Chloe.
Morning # 1: Epic fail.
At our mommy & me class this morning, during discussion our leader was asking all the moms what they do to 'recharge their batteries'... I answered honestly... since Lauren arrived, I've been making sure to take the time in the mornings to at least take a quick shower. It makes a huge difference in how I feel for the rest of the day. I didn't realize how hilarious that sounded until everyone started laughing. It's just the life of a mom I suppose. We've all been there... just grateful to have a shower... regardless of whether we actually get to DRY our hair! :)
Chloe had a costume parade today in class. She was THE cutest thing I have ever seen in my entire life. Seriously. She left her ladybug costume on (headpiece and all!) for the entire class. I was so proud of my little girl. She is (as I said earlier) a complete delight. She lights up every room she is in. She's a complete entertainer and she absolutely melts my heart.
