Before we begin, yes, my husband is shirtless. Moving on!
I had the most awesome week with my mom here. We all cried when she left, it was pretty tragic actually. Driving away from the airport, the baby was screaming from hunger, Jack was in hysterics because Gramma just left and I was bawling right along with him. There was alot of snot and alot of tears but we recovered. I miss her like crazy.
Violet is now officially 2 weeks and 2 days old. She is thriving and of course is the most beautiful thing in the world. :) I am so enamored with everything about her, even when she makes those "ugliest/cutest" faces. She is sleeping fairly well. She wakes up around 12-1 am and then 4-5 am but that's basically it. I have gotten smart and have started going to bed between 9 and 10. Really what is there for me to be doing that is more important than sleeping?!
Jack is alright. He is a little bit temper tantrumish all the time. He gets jealous and closes off when the baby is around for the most part. On the other end of the spectrum he is alot more affectionate and snuggly when it's just us two. I love the kisses and the hugs and the constant attention I get from him when the baby is asleep.
Michael is fine. He is sleeping on the twin mattress we have shoved in the corner of our living room. That equals a full nights sleep for him, if he could ever turn off the computer and the tv!
I am doing really great actually. On Tuesday I went back to the gym for a Body Pump class and boy was it amazing! What is it about the gym that makes me feel alive? I am going to a Body Step class tonight and my only fear is that all that bouncing around will make my milk drop several times and I will be like a flowing well of milk. We'll see.
I guess that's everyone. I wish I had more exciting news or a funny story or something along those lines but I really don't. This is just one of those boring updates you know? Hopefully, some of you like it. :)
Last night after I finished rocking Jack I walked into the living room to find Violet dead asleep in Michael's armpit. So funny!
Somehow they all ended up shirtless at the same time and I couldn't resist.
The first real bath.
Here Jack is checking her out before he plants his first kiss.
