I'm still not the best at this

I'm going to blame it on managing two little ones this time.  I am still not the best at blogging regularly.  I made a promise to blog while we were in Savannah, but had no idea what awaited us at home!  It's insanity at times and like Amanda says, "We are in the trenches!"  I don't know of a better way to describe it.  Jarrett and I recap the previous night's happenings the following day at lunch (I'm zonked when he leaves for work).  Needless to say, we're both ready for the two o'clock feeding to disappear.  It seems to be our "intruder", as Baby Wise would call it.  Nightly Breaker is either wakes up early for his mid-morning dish or he won't go back to sleep afterwards.  I can't blame him though.  We're usually able to catch a little Jimmy Fallon (love him).  That is the one highlight this time around.  Early morning television is much better than it was when Finley chowed at night.  We are one of the few families who has not invested in a DVR, but that time may be coming!  Jarrett has been snoozing during prime time and you guys that know him know he's not going to miss Big Brother or American Idol.
Enough about us boring parents.  Breaker is doing great!  It's wild how fast he is packing on the pounds.  I think we've got a teenage boy on our hands times.  He eats like crazy.  We go through a can of formula about every three days.  Oh yeah, breastfeeding bit the dust.  I tried (seven weeks).  It was too much to balance with Finley running around too.  I hate it, but something had to give for my sanity.  Plus he was always so fussy when he finished feeding, not the case as much now.  Now I'm hoping Dr. Aljabi will change his formula.  Neosure is not as pricey as Finley's fillet mignon, Nutramigen, but it ranges from $16-$18 a can.  Momma is headed back work next month!  Thank goodness for the grocery budget.  I don't know what I'd do if I had to cut the fro yo.
That brings up the next big step for our family, mom going back to work.  I can't wait to be back in the nursing mix.  I miss SE OB/GYN like crazy.  However, I am nervous about lack of sleep and pick-up/drop-off for the crew.  Jarrett and I are going to have to be strategic, not to mention highly organized.  I've told Beebe not to worry.  We're going to develop a system!
I better run before little man wakes up for his second lunch of the day.  I'm going to try and get to the chatter weekly!  You guys bare with me!

  1. Don't beat yourself up about it!! The only reason I get anything on my blog is because I write a bazillion posts in one sitting (on the airplane b/c that is the only time I can sit!) and then set them to self publish every so often. Miss you guys!! Good luck with the back to work transition!!
