I’m still here!

Ahh, I didn’t even realize how long it has been since my last update until someone commented a couple days ago asking what happened to my blog and if I was still updating it! Yikes!

I’m still here! Just a bit busy 🙂

Rebecca is great. She’s a wonderful sleeper and will sleep hours at a time…. but… she doesn’t sleep AS well at night. She’s a little night owl. And that makes for a very tired mama (and daddy).

Ryan now gets up at 5:30am, too, so we’re ALL still adjusting.

Ryan loves his baby sister and always wants to “pat her” and kiss her. However, he is having a hard time adjusting to the new addition and the shared attention. This deserves an entirely separate blog post. Anyway, needless to say, I have my hands full. Rebecca sleeps a lot during the day, but Ryan needs a lot more attention. Plus, with the beautiful weather we’re suddenly having, we’re spending a lot of time outside. I used to use evenings as blog/work time because Steve would be home from work to help with the kids. But now… we’re both totally exhausted. I haven’t had the energy to blog, honestly, and I try to get in bed as early as possible. So there goes my blogging time!

Promise I’ll get back on the wagon soon 🙂 Too much work to do and too many posts to write! I will also be posting my birth story, but first I have to write it! And it will be password protected for only family and friends. If I know you, you can read it 🙂

    Take your time getting back to blogging, people don’t realize how much work it really is! Enjoy the babes:)

    Bloggers don’t get a 12 week family/maternity leave? LOL! So glad you are doing well, I have missed your posts but I totally understand! 🙂

    Haha, right?! I’d love a 12-week paid leave from blogging 😉

    So nice to see an update! I would love to read your birth story. My expectant sister-in-law is planning a home birth and the more I learn about it, the more I love the idea. Congratulations on your beautiful addition!

    So nice to read the updates. I understand not wanting to share the story with the whole world, reading the updates through the labor though has gotten me thinking about a home birth vs hospital. If you decide to share with me I’d be grateful. But I understand either way.

    Congratulations! Take the time you need : )

    So glad to hear all is going well! Your babies are just beautiful! I wanted to mention that your second delivery inspired me to research more fully my options for my second child when we ttc again in the future. I had a pretty similar labor to yours last year–30 hours of little progress and my son was also delivered c-section. I will be attempting VBAC next time for sure! Thanks for all that you have shared-it’s been so helpful to me and so sorry that others have gotten in your way in this regard. Best!

    Ohh, I love it! You can do it, mama!!! Ya know, some moms just have long labors and that’s what we need–time. If you ever have any questions or just need to chat, I’m here 🙂
