hmm...so much to blog, but quite literally, so little time.  Days and nights are running together, going by slowly, yet quickly.  I am officially in the new mom vortex again, but I have a two year old with me this time making things very interesting at times.

Bradie is doing pretty well, but I think holding some emotions back judging by the ferocious tantrum she had before bed last night.  But over all she is doing splendidly.

Beau is a pretty content little baby and appreciates a hiatus in his bouncy seat after a time of cuddles.  He's on a three hour schedule that he pretty much set himself.  His alert time the past couple of nights has been lessening which *hopefully* will begin his sorting out of day and night- little turkey thinks a three hour nap is a good thing first thing in the morning but not the last thing at night! :)  But all to be expected I suppose.  

Now I am REALLY unsure of what I did with my time before!  Grandma Mary always asks me "so do you remember what you did with your time before Bradie?"  I always answer definitely not and that answer has only become more emphatic.  But God has allowed me the cutest, most lovable (and quite possibly, the biggest) kids ever!  And I know that my time with them will never be in vain.  And that is the peace and blessing of motherhood.

Beau weighed 9 pounds 10.5 ounces on Sunday.  That's 8 ounces gained in less than a week! (his low was 9#2 for those who like baby stats) I bravely stepped on the scale myself that Sunday and found I was 20 pounds lighter in one week!

*cue dramatic music* 

So...that makes you, Sara, this week's biggest loser
