Since having Noah I have felt like I was living in this fog. Having Noah was so much easier than it was when I had Ashton, so I felt like I recovered faster than I did the first time. Adjusting to having two kids at home was a little harder.
I was feeling guilty because now I am staying at home Ashton wasn't able to go to daycare anymore, he loved being there. He had gotten to the point where when we would drive down the road to Becky's house he would recognize it and get really excited. He would run in and give Becky huge hugs. He loved playing with all the kids being at home with mom all day is not as much fun. I know that so many people look down on daycare, but I think that it has a lot of benefits. I am grateful that I am able to stay at home and raise my boys I am lucky to have this opportunity.
Getting no sleep was not helping the situation either, I was so tired all the time. Everyone says to sleep when the baby is sleeping, but it isn't that simple when you have a toddler running around also. I would put a movie on for Ashton, nurse Noah and lay down on the couch and fall asleep with Noah next to me and Ashton crawling all over me.
Now here I am three months later and I am now use to no sleep and I don't need to take a nap everyday, which is awesome. I feel like myself again which is nice

My mom watched the boys while I was gone. It is a little shorter than I was anticipating. I did still want to be able to pull it back in a ponytail, that will not be happening for a while. Overall
I am happy with the results, it will just take some getting use to, it is weird to have such short hair.

I have been working on this layout for Noah's book for about a week now. Korie wanted me to post it so she could see how it turned out.
sorry I can't figure out why they rotated, I tried about about 5 times to make them right, but you can get the idea :)

I have to give a huge thanks to all of my parents. They have been so great to help out with the boys for the last three weekends. It started with my dad and Val coming and watching the boys while Jason and I went to a movie and dinner. The next weekend my mom and Myron came and watched the boys while we went to dinner with some friends then played games. Then this last weekend my mom took Ashton over night on Sat so that I could have a little break and hopefully a little more sleep. Ashton loves to be at grandmas house so it isn't hard for me to send him away for the night. He loves it so much that when Jason and I went to pick him up he didn't even care that we were there and basically ignored us. I know as soon as Noah is no longer attached to me, he will love to spend time with grandma and grandpa too.
So once again a big thanks to my parents. I can't imagine not having you around to help out like you do.
