Catching up.

Well, it's been a minute since I blogged.

Truly my life is wonderfully boring. 

Hazel is back in preschool 2 days a week and Elouise and I are volunteering at the church. I wear Elle the whole time and we both love it. Cuddle time while being productive? Yes. 

Hazel is loving being back and school, she really missed it while I was on "maternity leave." The hardest thing is getting all of us ready and fed and to the church at 9 AM. Considering we usually don't get out of bed until 9 or 9:30... It is no fun getting up at 7 AM. 

Elouise is doing great. She's a very good baby but night time isn't great. We figured out she likes sleeping on her tummy so that has been helping but she still gets up a lot. Normally she has one good stretch of at least 4 hours but then after that it's every 1.5 to 2 hours. So at 2 AM I am feeling refreshed and ready for the day :(. Oh well, it'll work out and we'll get in a routine. 

This Saturday night I am leaving both of the girls with my mom and sister while Jonathan and I go to a party. I am excited for the break and have been pumping like a mad woman. I've been taking Fenugreek and drinking Mother's Milk tea and it has been doing wonders with my supply. I am excited for the break but won't even be able to sleep through the night even when she's not with me because I'll have to pump. #breastfeedingproblems

Overall things have been amazing. She fits so easily into our family and we are all head over heels.

Elouise will be 2 months in a couple days. HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE? 

She is cooing a lot now and smiling. This morning at 5:30 she woke up and I was being grumpy and she started smiling at me and it made it all disappear. She has a dimple and it is the most adorable thing I have ever seen. She is simply perfect. 

I am joining a mom's bible study group every Friday and I am really looking forward to that. It'll be fun to get out of the house and be around mom's with young kids while growing in my relationship with Jesus. 

I am not adding any pictures today because I'm simply too tired. Sorry but going on no sleep and pure caffeine leads to no pics. #badblogger.


  1. Ethan is starting to smile. It seriously takes all the bad mood away! So glad your getting out for a date night. I'm thinking we will in march for a friends birthday. I didn't wear Mackenzie and I'm loving wearing Ethan. It's the best. Our favorite thing is vacuuming. He sleeps and it's like exercise for me. :)

  2. I can't wait for our little one to start having real smiles and not just ones that are associated with gas pains :) Sounds like things are going well as a mommy of two!
