All I can say is that it's been WONDERFUL having my husband home for the past 10 days!HE has taken the kids to the park, to the movies, read bed time stories, helped with bath time, played with the kids, helped with laundry, the dishes, changed diapers, fed the baby, made lunches, helped with home work, kept the neighbor kids away, & watched the kids so I could run errands ALONE!!! Talk about an AMAZING man! Trav is truely one of the best Daddy's in the world, which can be seen just by the way the kids look at him. They adore him and can't wait until he is home so they can have piggy back rides, candy, and fun on the trampoline with him. What melts my heart the most is when he's rocking Grace to sleep at nap/bed time and I can hear them both singing: Rock A By Baby, You Are My Sunshine & Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. There is nothing sweeter than my 2 year old saying: "Daddy, come rock a by me" and my strong, quiet husband scooping her up in his arms and holding her close while singing to her. I am very blessed to have him and my babies are so lucky to have him as their Daddy.
The past 9 days have gone by so fast!We are all doing really well- Willow is a great baby and pretty much just eats & sleeps right now, the kids are in love with and I just have to smile as she's passed down the line of eager sibilings, just bursting with excitement to hold her again. Our AMAZING friends have kept us well fed this past week and I've decided I should just keep having babies so they keep bringing us "real food" (Just kidding guys!) I actually slept 3 hours straight the other night!!!!!!! (which was a HUGE accomplishment for me) and I managed to get a shower this morning,(although it's super fun walking around smelling like breast milk!) I even hit a few yard sales yesterday with Angie.
And to my concerned family members: No, there has been no rest, and I'm sorry. I am incapable of resting, relaxing, or doing anything like it. I wish I could say I have layed in bed for days, letting my body heal- but no, I am indeed a crazy woman and have been out running errands,getting great deals, doctor app, etc.. on day # 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8. All Mother's know there is no rest, and sadly, life doesn't stop just because you want it to. One day, I will rest, and one day I will be able to sleep through the night again, but until then, I need to enjoy every moment and every tiny person that makes that utterly impossible these days.
