Adjusting...

I am back in almost full swing after my c-section (thanks to regular doses of percocet, motrin and lots of help from scotty and my parents). Our little family of three has become four and I am going to be honest...this is a major adjustment. The first night home was spent changing 7 poopy diapers, nursing about every 45 minutes, and jack screaming everytime the bianca woke up. hmm, I thought I was done being a mom of 2 but after a suffient breakdown, a warm shower, and a husband who stepped in and took over I realized it was probably the hormones talking and I just needed a few days. It has been a few days and things are wonderful! jack has learned to sleep through her crying, bianca has been able to control her bowel movements to just two nightly and has figured out that she really only needs to nurse twice from midnight to noon...life is grand!
We really are enjoying this chubby ray of sunshine, scott and I spend most of the day just trading off snuggles. Jack likes to look at her and call her "beebee", and is also learning how to be "soft".

She is sooo cute, I am not sure I can wait four more days to see her. Please make sure she doesn't grow up too much! Jackson, of course, is as cute as usual. I hope today has minimal amounts of poop!

Congrats on your sweet baby Bianca! I saw your comment and was so excited to checkout your blog. I can't believe you have two babies. They are absolutely adorable and you look fabulous (especially your sassy haircut...I might have to bring your picture to my mom to see if she could make me look as cute as you). I hope you don't mind if I like you to my blog, I would love to keep checking in. Tell you mom and dad I say hello!

Good job Jill and Scotty, she is beautiful! I can't wait to see her and hold her. Maybe that would make Clayton want to come out and play with her(keep your fingers crossed). You guys have the cutiest family.
