Checking In

Phew!! What a horrible time to have a newborn haha! 

Ok, there's never a horrible time to have a sweet baby, but life has been a little rough for everyone. Cory and I are trying to adjust to not getting a good nights rest anymore. He really isn't awful. He gets up 2-3 times a night to eat and usually goes back to bed, but last night he was awake for 1.5 hours with me which wasn't fun... 

I'm trying to stay normal while dealing with post-partum hormones. I've done much better than in the past, so that's good. I had one minor meltdown last night when the girls were pushing my every limit and not going to bed -- I got super freaked out for doing this on my own when Cory goes back to work. But it passed and today I feel much more stable. 

Logan has completely stolen my heart. And I'm not joking. I've never been this bonded with a baby right off the bat. It would physically hurt my heart to not be holding him. Today is the first day where I could put him down and not ache enough that I would pick him back up again. 

The girls are having a rough time. Not necessarily because of him (although I'm sure that's part of it) but because we had him right in the middle of other big life events. Kennedy is struggling with all day school. I know she'll get the hang of it but it makes me sad. Her teacher is fantastic though, so I know it's only a small matter of time before she gets used to the schedule and school work again. 

Brynlie is still missing Kennedy like crazy!! We did take her to see her preschool today and I hope that'll help her want to go next week. In the meantime we've been spreading out our errands over the week to keep us entertained. Today was Lowes, which she actually enjoyed quite a bit. 

And can we please talk about her cute little Adidas shoes?! 

Who knew those things were going to make such a comeback! Lol but they're adorable. 

Although our house is a whirlwind of emotions, overall I think we're all happy and adjusting fairly well. 

We'll see how much the tune changes when Cory goes back to work... See you soon!
