Hello? *tap tap tap* Is this thing on?

I don't know if I'm quite ready to clear the dust on this ol' blog and get back to regular posting, but I found myself with the perfect opportunity to do a little writing this morning, so I thought I'd take advantage of it. Wes is taking a little cat nap (my goodness, that's all he does besides eat and poop). Andrew is extremely content playing on his own in his playroom. The floors are wet in the kitchen so I can't get to my laundry or breakfast. So, here we are!

I feel like I am settling in to this mom of two thing. We're doing more than surviving as in I'm managing to not only keep both boys fed and clean, but also keep up with laundry, do grocery shopping (even if I do lose my keys in Walmart) and get dinner started at night. A shower is never guaranteed, so I'm still looking like a hot mess 95% of the time, but I'll get there. As long as we have this cute face to take the attention away from my appearance, it's all good for a while, right?
*sigh* I die. I do love my boys!

I would love to be getting more sleep at night, but I guess that comes along with the whole newborn thing, huh? This too shall pass, plus I feel like my body is becoming adjusted to getting 4.5 hours of nonconsecutive sleep at night. There's always caffeine, right?
I kicked the bucket on breastfeeding. Again. I don't know why I feel the need to declare that publicly, but there it is. We're okay with it. It was a beautiful, great thing for a few days, but things went downhill very fast. I won't get into the details, but it got ugly and we're all much happier now. So there's that.

I'm healing up quite nicely. Barely notice any discomfort at all now and I'm READY ready ready to get into the gym. I have a 4-week checkup coming up and I hope to get the green light to do so!

So that's about all the updates I've got. Trey is doing well. Staying busy and missing his family! No exciting news on him, but that's a good thing. Oh... there is exciting news on him! He's set to make Captain in March!! Yayyyy :) So proud of that man.

Also, we have dear friends who just started their Army journey. He left Monday for 14 weeks of training for the National Guard. If you think of it, please say a prayer or two for him and his wife and two babies that are back at home waiting for him! I remember how hard it was during that initial training so they are on my heart constantly! Kthanks :)

Yay, so glad to hear that all is well. He's absolutely adorable. Definitely makes it worth the 4-5 hours of sleep.

How's Andrew liking being a big brother?

Big hugs from me! Miss you and glad to hear these small updates (which are actually quite large!)
