Quarterly Top 5

Been soooo busy these past couple weeks, just recently moved to the farm and still trying to get settled in and finish cleaning our last apartment before the month is up. I'm beat. And we don't have high-speed internet anymore, it seriously takes forever for photos and websites to upload,  I feel like I'm back in 2002.  Except then I was 16, had smaller pores, perkier everything, and could actually function without drinking copious amounts of caffeine.

Here are my top 5 pics for the past few months:

Moving to the Farm

Still in the process of packing up boxes for the big move this weekend. It is official, we are moving to the farm! My husband is going to work for and eventually take over his parents' farm along with his brother. And yes, that means I will be a farmer's wife. Not sure how I feel about that.

Anyway, still lots to do, but had to post some photos of my little ones. It's going to be a big change, but Chuck made our new basement apartment look so nice and cozy, so I am looking forward to it. Until next time.

Postpartum Stuff

I think I may have been going through a little postpartum depression for the past few weeks now. I feel overwhelmed, anxious, and of course, depressed.  It's not constant, but it comes in waves. Probably due to the usual new mommy stuff, lack of sleep, a sometimes crying colicky baby, having a 3 year-old who won't let baby take proper naps because she is...well...your average 3 year-old, not having any clothes that fit properly because of a tummy and boobs that are 3x their normal size, things like that.  

We are also in the process of moving. And we have a problem with wasps, they keep coming into my girl's room of our apartment, not good for someone with a slight phobia of bees (me), 2 kids, and I have no idea if either of them are allergic. I think I finally figured out where they were coming in, but we'll have to wait a few days and see. Thank the Lord nobody has been stung. And on top of all that, our new neighbor across the way does pot, same as our last neighbor. So I really can't wait to get out of here, but can't seem to find the time to pack boxes, let alone do dishes and go up and down 3 flights of stairs to do the laundry.

yeah, this tired mama needs a makeover

As I said, the feelings come in waves.  Hopefully things will calm down soon after the move and I'll be able to breathe again. Sleep on the other hand, I don't think I will ever sleep well again.  Thank goodness for the invention of the baby swing, my son loves it, and it helps this mama sleep a little bit at night.

Baby Isaac is getting so big, he's 2 months now. I call him my chunky monkey. Lucy is getting a little better with him, but we still need to work with her being more gentle and not getting so much in his space. I get real frustrated with her at times, please God grant me patience. They are cute together and Isaac is really starting to warm up to her.  Lucy said they are going to be friends, I hope that's true.
