Time Warp

 

Josh comes home today.  We will head to the airport in the new minivan around 5 tonight.  He has been gone for exactly 4 weeks to the day.

He returned to his ship when Georgia was 12 days old.  And now she is almost 6 weeks old.  I can't wait for him...

Pee Party

 

Georgia is 5 weeks old today.   Logan, my oldest, has been very interested in helping with his baby sister.  For the past week or so, he has helped me get her dressed for the day and ready for bed at night.  I've taught him how to change her diapers and get on...

Selfish?

 

It's official.  I am a minivan mom.  A bunch of you sent me emails with encouragement and insight.  It was an overwhelming YES to function, features and convenience.  Last night I pulled the trigger and we got a Chrysler Pacifica.  I sound like a perfect...

Circus Van

 

Georgia is 4 weeks old and Bonny is a bad to the bone teenager puppy.   Shortly after I came home from the hospital with Georgia, Bonny grew about 3 inches and realized she can "get things."

Out of nowhere she started breaking into the trash and helping herself to...

Bugs and bears

 

I guess we had an earthquake last night.  I didn't feel it because I was exhausted.  Of all the hours in the night I am awake with Georgia, we were asleep at that particular moment.

I'm from the East Coast so this is officially my first quake.  It's funny how...

I've missed writing these update emails.  I know they went from daily to about once a week...but I am ready to get back to writing again.

Funny, this journal is much less of an obligation and much more of a personal therapy.  Actually, I've noticed something. ...

House of boredom

 

Are you bored??

Well apparently if you lived in my house you would be.   My boys have been telling me non stop that summer is boring...and they have nothing to do.

Part of it surely is that I have a newborn.   I can't take them to do quite as much right...

At 12 days post-partum, I am definitely NOT ready to start actively trying to lose weight.  But as I sit and cuddle my new baby girl, I am considering how I want to structure my weight loss plan (when I am ready) and HOW I will measure progress.

10x in my world...

 

Georgia is 10 days old.  In a weird way, time feels like it has sped up.  What feels like 20 min can easily be 2 hours, but in a good way.  I think..."I'll feed her real quick, we'll get dressed, I'll hold her for a few min and then we will do...x." But...

Baby Georgia is here

 

I am sitting on my bed.  3.5 day old Baby Georgia is asleep in her bassinet next to me.

I just ate what I am calling "first breakfast" and am drinking a giant bottle of water.  I'm still using the hospital water bottle. I like the bendy straw so decided to...

Rocky Song

 

Welp, I am still pregnant.  Baby girl is going on 5 days late so perhaps she is signaling that she is on her own time agenda.

Although I don't have a baby announcement yet, I do have great news.   Because I am scheduled to be induced Monday night if she doesn't...
