I had to get the ol' calendar out and count the days because it honestly seems like one really long day with a few naps thrown in here and there. Madison is doing great though and we are finally beginning to settle in to our new family of four. Madison only weighed 7 lbs 3 oz at her last check up, so we have a bit of work to do to get her back to her birth weight. We are finally comfortable with nursing though, so hopefully she'll start packing on the ounces.
Andrew is AMAZING with Maddi. He calls her "little missy" and always wants to hold her and kiss on her. She just stares at him in contentment as he talks to her about all of the things he's going to teach her when she grows up...it's so precious. I am so lucky to have such awesome kids. I went to work for about 7 hours on Saturday, and they both sat there in my office with me the entire time without a single whine of protest. I forgot toys for Drew (I was just proud of myself for making it out of the house with all three of us dressed and clean!) so we listened to Taylor Swift together and sang at the top of our lungs while Drew played his air guitar and danced around and I typed my busy little fingers off. Thank goodness no one else was in the office :) It stinks to have to go back to work so soon, but I am so grateful to work with such compassionate people who let me take my little angels with me.
Well this week, my goal is to try and go somewhere other than work...maybe we will try the grocery store or church or the library or something. I just feel so tired and overwhelmed (not to mention out numbered). Sean has already taken Maddi to Drew's school to have lunch one day while I was working, so I know it's possible. I just need to get up the courage to bundle up my babies and with my purell in hand, venture out into the chaotic, germ-infested world again.
