Postpartum randomness

I've never been the kind of person who looks forward to working out but this squishy tummy has me looking forward to it now. Just a few more weeks. I also apparently forgot the havoc that pregnancy wreaks on a woman's midsection because whoa.

Remember when I said the baby is a good sleeper? She is during the day. Great in fact. Will sleep four hours without a peep. At night, it is a different story. Feedings take a minimum of one hour and as long as two. I'm going on about five hours of sleep right now. I'm looking forward to this afternoon's nap. (That means everyone.)

Today is my first day on my own with both the girls. So far, so good. Peanut woke up in a wonderful mood and the baby has been cooperating for the most part ... except now because she's crying.

I can finally drive on my own tomorrow per doctor's orders. This is wonderful since I've been feeling like a caged animal.

Speaking of caged animals, Peanut is going back to the sitter's part time tomorrow. It should be good for everyone involved.

We spent four days in a row with my sister and her two munchkins. If I ever had a doubt about stopping at two children, I no longer will. I don't know how bigger families handle it. God love you. The kids aren't bad but that is a lot screaming and chasing and tattling and "I need juice," and "Now I need a snack." Two is enough for me.

Anything you would like to share?

So glad you posted! I know you're crazy busy, but have wondering how it's all been going down.

The squishy tummy. Yeah. I've got nothing there in terms of advice.
