Confessions from the1st week

The first week with a newborn and a toddler has come and gone... we are now on week 2.
How is it going? I think it is going well. Although I do have a few confessions.

My biggest accomplishment today was gathering up all the pieces and parts that belong to Mr. Potato head, which had gotten lost amongst all the other toys.

I teared up and almost lost it at the song "your gonna miss this" by Trace Adkins in the car yesterday.

I am slightly terrified about Andy going back to work next week... flying solo will be a whole new experience!

We have let Rigg poke a pacifier in the baby's face, eye, ear, nose more times then I can count.

In the hospital, before I was discharged, a lovely woman came by and dropped off a post-partum diet pamphlet. I stored it on top of my donut box.

I only put Rigg in real clothes and not jammies two times this week. OK, it may have only been one time.

I sat and watched Rigg eat a small piece of paper because I was too tired to get up and take it from him. I am sure he needs more fiber in his diet anyway...

I keep looking in the mirror and sucking in... as if that is going to help...sigh

I have watched so much Elmo this week I am starting to think in third person.

I promised to call Jennie on Wednesday... and have yet to do it... sorry Jen.

I am savoring my not-so-secret stash of tootsie roll pops...yum

The Captain has a new skill. He can hold a baby and it does not affect his game on his XBOX!

I have been so busy I have not had much time to contemplate that Monday is Caden's 3rd birthday.  I will post her birthday video and some Heidi, be prepared.

OK... I am going to go have a tootsie roll pop and snuggle the wee one. Do you have any confessions you want to share?

You're too funny! Yes, I have plenty of confessions, but not the good excuse of a newborn anymore. HE IS SOOOO ADORABLE!!!

This post cracked me up. Andy is pretty awesome and the doughnut box was hilarious.

When I need a light-hearted chuckle, I know I count on you.

When I got the first picture of Ryder of my phone, I told you I thought he looked just like Rigg. I'm going to take that back. I see Caden so strongly in his eyes and hair/head. But that mouth looks just like Rigg's. He's a combination of both!! :)

Glad to see you still have your sense of humor. You're my hero....

You don't know me and I don't even remember how I came to read your blog. But, since we have some things in common, back I come.... I have a benign brain tumor that so far is sitting pretty, but I have been heartened to see that your husband came through his so well. And, my younger child's third birthday is tomorrow. Every time I read your blog, I appreciate him even more and tomorrow I'll send a special wish to Caden and to your whole family. Happy Birthday in Heaven Caden!

I confess that I'm seriously impressed by the baby-holding-Xbox-playing skill. That is rocking.

If you need help eating donuts in the future lemme know...
