Life On Maternity Leave

Wow, blogging is harder to do when you are home with the kiddos and aren't in front of a computer all day...  I am going to try to keep up on things as much as possible.  But I'm not making any promises ;)  Things are going great!  Owen is such a good baby.  He is so mild mannered and easy to love.  He hardly ever cries, he eats well, he is working on sleeping for longer periods through the night but I can't complain about him waking every 3 hours.  It could be worse.  I was spoiled with Lola, she only woke every 4 to 5 hours to eat.  But she was extra large as well ha ha

So here are some pics of the babe.  I have some of Lou but they are on my sisters camera so I will post them soon too.  She is a very good big sister, but she is very intense so we have to keep an eye on her and make sure that she is soft with the baby.  She seems to be adjusting well but she has had a few accidents and we are wondering if it has something to do with Owen, but they are few and far between so overall I think things are going well.  I make sure to give her attention and play with her when Owen is napping or I wear him in my Sleepy Wrap so I can play with her and do things for her.  I think I am going to love my baby carriers and am so glad that I got them!!

I was lucky enough to have Chris take a week off work and my mom came up for a couple of days as well.  So today is my first day alone with the kids and it is going well. We are all dressed and fed and happy.  I even managed some cleaning and putting away some Christmas stuff {yes, mine is still up, that is what happens when you have a kid a few days after Christmas}  I have decided I will have to give myself some goals or some sort of a schedule so I don't go stir crazy.  But the nice thing is, if I don't feel like I want to do my list I don't really have to and I am ok with taking it easy on myself because this is the time I have to be home with my babies and not have to work so I should enjoy every moment that I can!  I am hoping that someday I can stay home or at least be home more and only work a day or 2 a week.  But I really can't complain about 3 days a week and I feel blessed to have the job that I do!

My Lovees

He likes to wear big boy clothes

There are a couple great things about this pic... first, look how long those feet are and second, look at the pee trail on the right of him.  He is a sneaky guy and LOVES to pee when his diapee is off.

My babies love to sleep with their arms up by their heads.

My mom helped me get my cute wall hangings up while she was here.  I bought these illustrations at the Bijou Market.

My favorite thing of Owen's, his mustache booties!  Made by Meghan of Pleasantly Plump Knits, she is the sweetest gal too!

Owen sporting his cute booties!

My lil bro Ryker took some cute pics while we were at my parents this weekend.

I caught her off guard.
