i LOVE my Boys


My two favorite people: Andy and Ollie.
Andy has been a wonderful new father and has done a great job taking care of me during my recovery. When I was first nursing, I would get so incredibly thirsty--Andy would bring me water with a straw and hold the cup while I drank. Instead of complaining about how often he found himself doing this, he smiled and called me his little water buffalo (I know that doesn't really mean anything, but I thought it was a cute nick name).

Ollie is falling into a routine, which helps me get through my days. He's been sleeping very well during the night and enjoys bath time. He calms down when he hears running water and maybe gave us his first smile this morning. Hopefully I can catch it on camera soon or hopefully he'll become a happier baby. Either way, I'm a happy mother!

The Best Baby


Once upon a time... or maybe it was Sunday night... Andy and I put Oliver to sleep at 10:30 pm and didn't wake up until 5:30 am! I was soooo happy! Then to make things even better - Oliver was only awake for an hour and then slept for 3 more hours! I got my beauty sleep and then some - watch out Heidi Klum - any more of these nights and I'll be taking your place!
