What's a mommy to do!

Well Mother's day first one as a mom of TWO. I just wanted to stay in bed, felt that I had been run over by a bulldozer. Lauren too was feeling crappy, SLEEP was all that she and I needed. Well Amber was so anxious to give me my things that she made at school and what daddy had picked up. She crawled into bed with Lauren and I and opened it all for me and read me everything, it was so sweet. We spent the day at my in-laws can't say we were good company I felt crappy as well as Lauren. Well I worried about Lauren everyday with her stuffy nose and runny eyes. Hate to have a child that does not feel good. Her nursing habits were changing she was only wanting to nurse on one side hmmm I bet her ear is bothering her well back to the Dr's we went and bingo I was right ear infection. Poor little one, it's now been a week and I'm finally on the mend and hopefully Lauren is too. It's funny how the Mom just knows. So it's lots of cuddleing and rocking.

WOW time does fly!

Well March has come and gone and so has April. It was a busy couple of months with competition with dance and gee just seemed like every weekend we had something going on. The Summer is getting here pretty fast as well. It's hard to believe that Lauren just turned four months old. She is getting so big and changing everyday. She loves to have us talk to her and loves to watch her big sister, it's quite funny to watch her study her every move. The other night as I reached for Lauren to feed her I watched her nurse and thought how innocent. She is so beautiful and I love those nights were it's just her and the quietness of the house an occasional snore or two from the husband but other than that. I watch her as she nurses and and I cradle her in my arms as her legs are now falling over my lap. She is growing and learning every minute of everyday it's amazing. No matter how tired I am I love those moments that I have with her especially at night. Then as I settle her down back to sleep after a fully belly it's off to check on Amber just a habit I have. As she lays peacefully in her bed I'm sure having sweet dreams, and usually cuddling a stuffed animal. The other night I told her that I needed to wash her blanket that she lays over her pillow one that is just like Lauren's that she had to have, she was always taking it before Lauren was born to sleep with it so I got her one just like it. She told me "I can't sleep without it mom" So I guess one more night sleeping on a not so clean blanket would be ok. It won;t be long before it's gone and the stuffed animals are tucked away, but till then I will enjoy it every night watching her sleep and nursing Lauren making sure her full belly is ready for another three hours of sleep.
