Home Alone....

So today, Monday the 27th is the first day that Livy, Ian and I are home completely without help. So far, everyone is still alive and actually out of PJs, with breakfast, etc. I dozed on the couch for a few while watching Thomas the Train with Ian waking up to the repeated request of Ian telling me that he had to go potty. We made it in time thankfully. All of our company left yesterday after Livy's blessing. On saturday we went to historic Charleston and walked around a lot--I didn't walk as far as the group but it was still enough that I have been sore yesterday and today taking OTC pain killer.

Ian continues to be obsessed with Livy's belly button and wants to see it everytime I change her diaper. He is such a good helper and very patient overall when I am trying to take care of her needs. We just visted the Thomas website and now are getting ready to play with his train table before lunch while Livy is napping.

In our morning prayer, Brett gave thanks that I was able to stay home with the kids....plural now and that still is taking some getting used to; that I am the mother of two and am now in the daily grind of life at home without help.

Ready or not....

So this is the week of baby #2 arrival. We picked my mom up yesterday so she can be here a few days before the baby arrives to get done all the last minute things before and then after for when I am incapacitated on the couch recovering from the c-section.

It is hard to believe that this is the week......seems like it would never get here and now it is looming right in front of us. I am feeling big and tired. Swelling hasn't been nearly as bad as the first time so for that I am very very grateful.

So ready or not, the time is at hand.....
