Late Night Chats

Late at night this kid and I stay up late and chat.
He stares at me and I tell him how much I love him.
It's our thing.

Brock Everett- Two Months

Brock is 2 months old.
How is this possible?
Time is flying.
Brock is a happy little guy.
Sleeps wonderful and I feel so lucky.
He doesn't like to be put down...EVER!
Cries whenever he isn't in someones arms.
But, I sort of love it because that gives me an excuse to hold him all day long!
While we were taking his two month shots Claire had to hop in them and I love that show did.
She loves her baby brother so much!

Two month Stats:
11 pounds 3 ounces
23 inches

Living Planet Aquarium

On one of Josh's days off we went on a family adventure to the aquarium in Draper.
It was our first outing as a family of four.
Let me just tell you...it was the BEST!
Claire was so excited to be anywhere but our living room watching Mickey.
And I was excited to be out of yoga pants and have a helper named Daddy!
Claire loved all the animals.
Brock pretty much slept on Josh the whole time.
After the aquarium we went to our new favorite restaurant called 'pieology' and Claire actually ate pizza...which is a big deal.
She doesn't eat normal food ever.
It was the perfect day with my family.

Mother of Two

This is how it's been going the last month in a half...
Being a Mom of two has really been kicking my butt.
Seriously, How do people do this?
I ask myself this question every single day.
This is hard.
Josh works at night & i'm alone with these two kids most of the day.
Bath time and bed time is the worst time for me.
I'm trying to juggle a crying baby, but still give Claire the attention she needs.
I'm in over my head...
Also another thing I tell myself daily.
Okay, well how about I just give you a list of the things going through my head on a daily basis:

  • I haven't showered in what feels like a decade.
  • How is my hair standing up like that on it's own?
  • Is that poop or chocolate?
  • I smell like spit up and chocolate milk.
  • Have I even worn makeup this week?
  • Wow, I have to pee so bad.
  • Have I peed at all today?
  • I'm literally about to pee my pants...
  • I have to stay positive and enjoy every second.
  • Remember they grow up so fast and you will miss this.
  • It's hard now, but it won't be hard forever.
  • Ew...what is that?
  • I'm starving.
  • Have I eaten today?....nope.  Probably should.
  • Time to pump.
Yeah...so this is my life.
Its hard and I'm struggling right now, but I know it will get easier the older Brock gets.
If Josh had different hours at work I know it would be easier, but until then I am getting through it.
Day by day.
I am one lucky woman to have these two kiddos.
If I remember that during the hard times, I can make it.
Motherhood isn't for wimps.
I love my two little rascals with all my heart and soul!  
They are the sunshine to my rainy day and I wouldn't trade this craziness for anything in the whole world.
I am a Mother of two.

Dance Class!

Claire started her very first dance class today.
It was adorable and she is so cute in that little outfit!
Also, her ballerina bun...cuteness overload.
She loves her teacher and can't wait to go back next week!
