I got to finish a hot coffee- Felt like a bloody holiday...

Its officially been a week since Reid has been home from the hospital...At least I think it has- Exhaustion is not even the word I would use to describe how both the hubs & I are feeling...How we are even functioning is beyond me...

Its so great to be home with my boys again...{minus not having nurses at my beck ncall, having to feed Reid & pump every 2-3 hours & having the little rascal rip out her feeding trip - so another trip to the emergency room} But,thankfully home...And someone is pretty friggin happy to have his mumma & "baby Reeee" back...


I guess I didnt really realize in my utter fear & worry for Reid how quiet & less tiring it was in the hospital- I could focus ALL my energy on her- She was pretty much in my arms for 10 days straight...Now home, add Noal to the mix & hello reality, how you doing?



If you havent picked up Noals energy from photos or videos trust me I got myself a busy little boy...So, the 2 days a week when hes in daycare is like a bloody holiday for me- I can actually drink a coffee while its still hot- I can blog, read, catch up on shows {Hello Girls- why am I just watching you now? And have yall been watching Nashville- LOVE}...Its funny when I was pregnant with Noal every woman out there use to tell me rest now while I could- And yes you are definitely tired having a newborn- But you also get to plop that newborn down in a swing to have a moment to yourself...With Noal now I barely get time to pee by myself- its constant books, cars, songs & holding his 30 pound little body..And while I love it- Trust me- I do- For my own sanity & to have time just with my little pip squeak Reid, those 2 days a week are pure bliss...

SideNote: Our new nickname for Reid besides Reidster is Pip....Everyone in the hospital kept oohing & ahhing over how cute & small she was- So, I started calling her pip squeak & now we just call her Pip...I love it & its gonna stay- FOR LIFE...Remember Im the nickname queen...

Anyways,Ive come a long way in the daycare thing...When Noal first started going I was a hot mess- But now, seeing how much fun he truly has, how busy they keep him & how much hes learning its truly a win/win...This morning I laid on the couch after my boys left & held Reid after enjoying a hot coffee & eating both pieces of my toast- Not sharing half with Noal & then chasing him around so he doesnt get peanut butter on anything...I got to actually close my eyes & just take a minute to enjoy her...

It was nice...But,usually by 2ish I'm missing that busy boy & the chaos he brings to my day...
