5.5 weeks... we're still here!

oh i miss you my little blog!

we're almost six weeks deep in this new baby thing and you know what?  things are getting good.  you guys... i've fallen deeply deeply in love with this new little baby.  i mean of course, the second he came out i loved him.  he was a sweet cuddly little baby & he was ours & i didn't ever want to let him go or put him down but he was still a stranger.  now, just in the last week or so this little baby has lodged himself irreplaceably in my heart.

he gives us the biggest, happiest smiles.  he coos & gurgles & makes eye contact & looks happy to see me.  and that?  has made me fall even deeper in love.  so, things are getting good.

in this last week i've taken both boys out to public places {target, grocery store, the mall, etc.} by myself & despite a parker melt down or two, we've all survived.  the boys usually overlap naps for at least an hour or so most days & i'm gaining confidence in this mom of two thing.  life is starting to feel routine again.  we've gone to stroller strides twice now & i'm enjoying coming out of hiding.  it's nice to have a little bit of a life again & i know things will only get better here on out.  because it's pretty hard at first.  but just like everyone says, "it gets better."

also, i've started doing photography sessions again & had three sessions in just this last week!  elliot has been taking a bottle of pumped milk like a champ while i'm gone & that makes me happy too.

and something i'm really excited about?  being in the market for some new tennis shoes & getting real serious about getting healthy & back in shape.  something about a new pair of kicks helps motivate me to get out the door & get my booty moving!  but first i should probably quit this cookie dough & chocolate milk habit i have, huh?  meh, one thing at a time.  

ok, this post has been random & scattered but that's kind of just my life right now.  moral of the story is we're not only surviving, we are starting to get a little normal around here & things are starting to get good.  i'm loving my new life with these two little boys & am so excited for the coming months.  fall, halloween, thanksgiving... christmas!!  this year is shaping up to be pretty sweet.

and now for a couple shots of my cute boys because that's how i do.

  9. So happy to hear that things are getting a little better!! With every passing day, you will start to feel more and more confident in your new life with 2 kids. It's all going to normalize! And girl, you need to help me find the motivation to start getting back in shape. It's been almost 6 months since Easton was born and I STILL have 8lbs to lose. Ugh. lol

  10. Love this post! I love that I get to see you more now that you're out and about! And seeing how you're adjusting gives me hope for that day when we have two around here. Funny side note: Tim was sitting by me when I just pulled up your post and he says "Amy knows that "I"s are supposed to be capitalized, right?" Silly Tim. He just doesn't understand style. :)

  11. Glad to hear things are going so well! You are such a champ getting out there exercising again. I am actually looking forward to that this time around, after Dane I had an "eh, why bother?" attitude.

  16. happy to hear that everything is starting to even out. the beginning is just a juggling game and testing your limits. before you know it, you will look back & laugh and not remember what is was like to have just one!

    and good for you for getting back into the workout swing. something tells me the PNW is going to see you running around with a double jogger very soon! go girl!

  19. You're doing AWESOME!!! It's hard to get in the swing of things with two, but so glad to see you back to "normal" so quickly!!

  20. That's wonderful!! It's nice to start feeling like you've got this down and in a routine!! You are doing amazing! Love the new photos. Elliot seems to change daily and and Parker looks like such a big boy all of a sudden!
