A few things I have learned this morning!!

(1) This to shall pass...being the mother of a newborn, toddler and needs will be last to get met...but no need to have an attitude about it. It is not as bad as it may seem/feel.

(2) Thank God for me finding the front carrier that I can put baby Haley in so my hands can be free...I feel like a whole new world has just opened up to me!

(3) Coffee rewarmed 3 times is not as bad as I thought it would be!

(4) If I want to paint today...I just need to make it happen!

Joys and Challenges of being a new mother...,AGAIN!

I am 3 1/2 weeks in to being a new mommy...for the second time :-)!!!

Lots of things to remember and relearn the second time around! Truly a blessing...a gift from little girl!

Today...while she is asleep...I will take a shower! My simple...yet attainable goal!

Today...this morning...instead of moving her sweet little body immediately from the car seat to her bed...upon the return from dropping off her two and a half year old brother at daycare. I will bring her inside...unhook her and let her sleep. I have learned that once I move her...she wakes up, and quiet mommy time...shower lost :-)! Just thought of this idea today...we will see how it goes.

To moms with new infants and toddlers...God bless you.

It is a new world for my husband and I...and we are learning to balance them both...showing the right amount of attention, love and no JOKE! But it is a BEAUTIFUL CHALLENGE...a beautiful gift and opportunity that God has given us and you too... We Can Do IT!
