Peeking out from the new mom cave

Well hi there!

Remember me?

I used to blog. I wouldn't call myself a blogger, because there are so many people out there that are wayyyyy better than me at it, but I did blog, I swear.

But then I bought a house, had a toddler and a baby, and I just got kinda busy yanno?

Forgive me? Please?

I'd be lying if I said it was only my new baby that has been keeping me away. Fortunately, Sweet, sweet Anna is a sleepy, easygoing dream come true.

No, instead, I am spending every spare minute that I'm not holding my newborn or playing with Emerson working on our house. Our house that I love but DAMN!!! Painting sucks. SUCKS. If I never see a paintbrush again it would be too soon. Too bad we're not even halfway done. If I hated money I would hire painters, but instead I'm choosing to spend my maternity leave not resting. Not even a little.

I'm telling myself that I'll get to rest when the once is done. Because unlike our old house, which was in some state of construction for the whole 5 years we lived there, this house will be "done" once the painting is done. Well, at least done in terms of what I'm willing/able/capable of doing. And that glorious goal is what I am working toward, because I can't wait to be "bored" in this new house. We've set a date of July 4th to have all the painting done, which is pretty realistic. We're going to throw a party just to tie ourselves to that deadline too. Stay tuned and I'll let you know if that was the worst idea ever.

Anywhooooo, the moral of the story is I've been slacking on the updates. Ergo, to entice the forgiveness out of you, let me show you some pictures of my beautiful, beautiful daughters.


What up home slice?


She wore these white pants before Memorial Day. Don't tell Tim Gunn.

I shall eat ALL of the pretzels.

So sleepy

Double stroller... best thing EVER! We love exploring our new neighborhood and parks :)

Milk drunk ;-)

So beautiful

 Oh wait. That's sushi. Sushi that I'm allowed to eat now. Thank the Lord! Ok, back to the babies.

At Heather's wedding. Youngest person there ;-) Also, half of Heather's female wedding guests saw my boobs because I nursed her in the bathroom twice. You're welcome, Heather's wedding guests. You're welcome.

This is how she falls asleep

Tiny baby hands


Sleepy family

This girl will always be my "baby"

I'll be back soon with more updates, some house before/after shots, Anna's professional newborn shots, and her crazy birth story. Until then, stay cool folks.
