IMG_5796Dad’s back at work today (can you hear my broken heart?)  I’m pretty bummed about it, but we knew our honeymoon had to come to an end at some point.  Today’s my sad day. Tomorrow I’m hoping to do better.  Maybe I’ll hang up my yoga pants and put some moisturizer on my face. Maybe I’ll eat something healthy or open the blinds and let the sun in. Maybe.

Today… I’ll just cuddle with my kiddos and reminisce about the past couple of weeks with dad.

PicMonkey Collage 3^^ I haven’t been cleared to take a pool dive yet, but Haddon and I have been cheering dad and Grace from the sidelines.  We’re pretty cute cheerleaders and dad and Grace sure put on a show for us^^

PicMonkey Collage 1^^ These two have been inseparable. My hands are full with our new little one and Ale has been showering Grace with all sorts of attention. Daddy’s girl for sure!^^

IMG_5862^^Baby lips are my favorite and I’ve been sneaking in smooches all day long.  Soon he’ll be six and want me far far away from him… but for now I’ll cuddle him and smooch as long as I possibly can^^IMG_5819PicMonkey Collage 2IMG_5804^^I know the picture is blurry, but this man and his smile!!! I can’t believe we’ve been married for five years! ^^
IMG_5851^^ The past couple of weeks with our two babies have been difficult. It has been easier to figure out what the baby is in need of but managing Grace, giving her attention, dealing with hormones and a post-baby body has made everything harder. Which leads me to the broken heart part. We miss dad today and although it will get easier as time passes… today I’ll sit on the couch with yoga pants, eat cookies from last nights dinner and attempt at being a mother of two all by myself. ^^

  1. Lovely post. We are also adjusting to being a family of four, and I understand the sadness of Daddy going back to work, the frustration at dealing with the toddler’s frustration and transitions and the uncertainty as to how to divide the attention. Girl, stay in those yoga pants for as long as you want! Found you via The Pleated Poppy.
