Sweet little thing after her morning nap. Aren't naps great?! Refreshed babe... refreshed mom and dad. Just wonderful.
But, we did it! And life is much less stressful now. Our last house had no dishwasher, no microwave, one bathroom, and squeaky but beautiful hardwood floors. Geez, what were we thinking?! So now with a dishwasher, microwave, clean carpet, more space, new washer/dryer, and a nice big garage for the dogs to sleep in- life is wonderful again. It's funny how those little things make a HUGE difference in day to day stress levels.
So we are getting into the swing of things again. Matt is back in classes for the fall, I am working nights...and getting to spend 4 precious days off with Cora a week. And big deal for Cora this week... she starts up at daycare (4 hours/week so that matt can do HW and I can sleep for my night shift)! I think she is going to love seeing other little babes. And I am feeling like a mom finally, and enjoying it immensely. Oh yea...I even cooked dinner this week, went grocery shopping, and cleaned the house. CRAZY! I also stopped breast feeding- which gave me a huge surge of energy that I didn't realize I was lacking. Life is good. Now I need time to craft and talk with my girlfriends....so very soon!!
And little miss is now waking up. Gotta go!
