I am back to work full time but it's half-time working at home and half-time working in the office. I find myself looking forward to the days where I go in because it's the only time I have any freedom. When I am at home, I am either being a bottle or a bed 95% of the time and cannot do anything fun for myself. I also eat healthier at work.
Babies are such hard work.... I didn't realize how time consuming they really are! As sad as this sounds I don't want to go back to work cause it isn't a break for me.. Its pretty much taking care of bigger babies in the hospital. Im looking into finding a new job.
I'm doing okay for now. DH is off work for 6 more days so that helps... Once he goes back though... I don't know how I'm going to do it.
Forever missing my 3 angel babies. Sep 2010, Nov 2010, Jan 2011
I'm pretty good. Tired. As always. I swear I am never getting sleep again
I have four kids here today. Julia and her little brother are here on tuesdays to help out. Their dad has ALS and the whole situation is really sucky. So I give grandma a break on Tuesday's by watching the kids. We are hitting the park later, which should be fun.
Boys are good. Liam is talking more and more (although a LOT of words sound like a particular F-word Pretty much anything that ends in a "K"). Kieran is close to walking. I have been more productive around the house lately...but think I am hitting my wall of being lazy. I go in stages. I think my first PP AF is Right around the corner. Gosh the cramping can go away anytime now!!
I am doing ok. Finally got my happy baby boy back. He wasn't feeling good last week. I can't believe how fast time is going. Cody is 5 weeks already. Dh is working a lot right. Almost feels like I am a single mom. Cody is starting to smile more and stating awake longer.
Well I have been wondering what I got myself into having another one. Lol. Layne is currently going through a cluster feeding stage so I feel like a milk tap. My back hurts from all the weird nursing and pumping positions. I am so happy to have him home though. I went through $100 worth of gas those 2 weeks he was in NICU.
My kids are currently at my dads back home in Louisiana, but they come home this weekend, so I will have to adjust all over again. I forgot how demanding having a newborn is. I do love him so much though. The hubby is a huge help though. He gets upset if I do not let him help me out.
I still have to follow up with the specialists for all his issues, but I'll keep everyone up to date when those happen.
Thank you Shortcake for my beautiful siggy!

Maiya is great - doesnt cry that much (at least compared to Kaiden at this age!!) and we are cosleeping which means, I'm able to get around 8 hours a night (works for me!)...
Kaiden still likes the one on one attention that he had before, but he is really becoming good with her, and has been gentle, and curious, but no overdoing it - I am so proud of him (so much better than I expected)...
I'm jumping off a cliff and interviewing for a good job at the UNiversity on Thursday - but I have to give a mock lecture to the faculty so I'm pretty stressed right now...but, it would be great if I got it!
Things are good here other than the fact my husband is gone until the end of October so that blows. I am thankful to have family that lives next door though. I am just ready for him to be home and hes only been gone a week as of today. We plan to drive to see him in August though. Its a 15ish hour drive :/
