Oops! So it's been almost a year since I last updated this thing. Did I mention I'm not so good at the whole keeping a journal thing...even on the interwebs? D'oh. Time flies when you've quit your job and are working part time and having fun with the little one, only to find out there's another little one on the way! Yeah, so that's my excuse. It's a weak one, but I'm sticking to it.
Just a month after Li'l G turned 1 (pictures below), we found out we were having another little monster! I should probably rename the blog, but well, let's not do everything at once. We found out about our new Li'l J on Thanksgiving, announced the news over Christmas, and before we knew it we were back in the hospital to welcome him to this side of life.
And now I'm the mom of 2 kids under 2. Let's just say I wasn't so confident I could do it, but having the Hubbers home for 3 weeks this time instead of 2 days definitely helped me get into the swing of things faster than the first time around. Gotta love the teachers' schedule! We settled into a pretty solid routine much faster than before, even though with all the coming and going with family in town it didn't seem like a routine at all. By the time we reached my first full day/night alone (yeah, the Hubs went away for a retreat), I felt pretty sure we could do this thing. Aside from a couple glitches here and there, we emerged fairly pain-free! Woohoo! I'm the mother of 2 - fear me! Ok, not really. There was a lot of pleading, perhaps a little yelling and even more silent praying as we approached bedtime and naptime.
Long story short, I'm going to try to keep this a little more updated to share the family adventures, but also random thoughts on raising this brood - the good, bad and the ugly - like I did at the start. We'll see how it goes...
