Best. Post. Ever.

I want to say it gets easier, but I have no idea. I'll just say, "good luck!"

We just forget how hard newborns are and so we go and have another one! :) But just remember it does get better..you will look back in a couple of months and what seemed like an eternity of "zombiness" will have only been a few weeks. AND don't forget...you rock when it comes to getting your kids to sleep thru the night and Jack and Violet will eventually be great playmates!!! Its all worth it...eventually! ;)

Hilarious...but only because I am just getting past the, "I just want to die" phase...sending lots of patience your way.xoxox

It is so hard. I thought I would lose my mind with Travis, but I survived. Remember, sleep deprivation is a form of torture!

Lilianne said...

Hang in there! And call me if you need help! I am just a hip, skip and jump away!!

I certainly was in a fog for like three months with Lois...but remember that it does get better!!

This too shall pass...the phase I mean. The next phase has something just as hard too.

I handed Todd a sucker today when he found out he failed his first licensing exam and said, "Sometimes, life just sucks."

Find yourself a sucker...and by that I do NOT mean Violet.

Go do something for yourself to make you feel human. It'll help. It also helps to not feel obligated to answer the phone and just make your own schedule.
The kicker with the second is, you just can't "lay down when the baby lays down" like the first. Find a few movies Jack likes...... :)

I cried for two weeks after we had Jacob! I was so overwhelmed! It gets easier. Hang in there Kat.

I'm sorry Kat. You are stronger than you think. I wish I could offer you advice, but pretty sure you have better advice in every aspect of life. Hang in there. Love you.

Life seems so much easier with a snuggie. Try one of those.

I didn't get out of bed until after 1pm for weeks after I had Moseley. I just started packing a sack "breakfast" for Carmen and leaving it on my nightstand, that way she could wake up and come in my room to watch cartoons, and I didn't have to get up right away.

You can do it! You are the best and remember you are not alone.. Love you!
