What Day Is It?

I just now realized it was Thursday. At least, I think it is. Things are a blur right now. The conventional day stuff is not important to me right now. I did realize the electric bill was due yesterday, so I paid it online...for a $5 fee! Good grief!

Yesterday we had to go to the store for a few things that couldn't wait until this weekend. It took longer to get everyone changed, dressed, and fed than it took to actually get a few things. I ended up going in my pajamas. At least the kids were cute! And it is a good thing we only needed a few things because the car seat took up the majority of the cart, and I just piled things around him.

We have been getting into somewhat of a routine. Breakfast, snack, lunch, nap from 1-3/3:30, snack, dinner, bath, and bedtime. That is until today. My mom called at 2:30 and because I'm about brain dead, my phone wasn't off or on silent. I never turn my phone off, just down. Anyway, her call woke Alice up (I was nursing HJ), and now I have a very cranky little girl. Thanks mom! Of course, it was my fault. Even though she knows what time nap-time is. And she still hasn't met her grandson. Something about driving here, and yada, yada, yada. She can drive her boyfriend/ex-boyfriend/roommate (or whatever he is) to and from work every day, though :-/

I'm still in my pajamas. The ones I wore to the store yesterday. I've been in them for almost 48 hours. I need a shower. I am covered in spit-up, breastmilk, peanut butter and jelly, pee, and who knows what else. Know what? I don't care a bit :-) well, I do care about the lack of a shower, but everything else just goes with the territory. I'll get a shower when Sean gets home, or after everyone is asleep. And I'll put on clean (but soon to be soiled) pajamas!

Alice has been really loving on her baby! I found her IN the bassinet the other night, sitting on him. If I put him in the bouncy seat, she tries to sit with him (actually on him) or climbs on him (I.e. Hugs him). She isn't trying to hurt him, but I have to watch her constantly with him. Here is a cute picture from this morning (love her bed head!).

And a cute picture of our little man!

Look at that pose! My grumpy old man!

I've been working on Harold Jack's birth story, which I'll probably post this weekend. It is taking awhile, and I don't want to forget anything!

Remind me to reread this in November so I can start reminding myself that if someone can handle 2 that close, I can handle 1.
I am starting to realize that this might actually happen. And its making me a bit nervous.

Pajamas are the best! I too always forget to turn the phone down...hopefully you will all get more nap time tomorrow!

The pictures are so so sweet!

Also, you're my hero. I still have yet to take the 2 girls shopping on my own! I escape in the evening and go by myself!

The only thing that made me feel human the first month or so after having the kidlets was a shower. Don't feel bad about wearing pajamas, I pretty much wear "comfy" clothes every single day and I don't have a newborn.

Addy was the same way with the twins when they were babies. she wanted to be with them, hug on them, kiss on them, but we had to be near her because she wasn't coordinated.

Just precious. You know, you can go to and use their free tools to edit your photos and get rid of the red eye very easily- and it's free! I know, I know, you just had a baby so I am sure your spare time is very limited and you are probably asleep standing up!! Good luck, your little ones are so adorable. Stop making me want to have another!!

Oh God, his round little cheeks just kill them! And so cute, Alice hugging him. Hunter loves to pat (sometimes a little too hard) Avery on the back or stroke her hair/ melts me!
