4 Months

So I am really trying to keep up with this whole blogging thing. But I'm tired and have 0 time. Having two kiddos takes up absolutely 100% of my time - there is no such thing as a "break".

Right now I'm in Bree's room praying she actually falls asleep on her own. Remember when I said she was a dream baby? Yea, that stopped about a week after those words left my fingertips.

Now, don't get me wrong...she has some great personality traits that make it very easy to travel around with her. She LOVES being held. This is both a blessing and a curse. Blessing because as long as she's being held by someone, there's usually not an issue. Curse because you are constantly holding her and sometimes just don't want to have to hold her:)

We've also had some major sleep issues. Bree's been getting up every two hours for over a month now. Last night we got 3 hours in between and it was wonderful!! I know it doesn't sound like a big difference, but that extra hour really really helps out. We're hoping that it was just a "4 Month Wakeful" period and she at least continues to give us 3 hour stretches.
Being parents of two children's tiring. Dan has said to me on multiple occasions that 2 kids is officially his limit (sleep deprivation can really solidify these decisions ;)

Running errands with one child is a treat now - and I look back thinking "why did I think this was so hard with one?!"

Although its been difficult, I think we are FiNALLY settling into a groove with our family of four.

I have been able to keep up with my workouts - they aren't as intense as they used to be..but I get them in. 4 times a week in the morning or lunchtime.
