an update

In case you don't keep up with all my 50 blogs here is an update on the fam.

The picture above is for Pammy more than anyone. She spent a lot of time helping me organize and reorganize during her visit (I love you Pammy). My mom is coming on Thursday and I am trying to make Enzo's room more user friendly for her and Enzo. He now has a loft bed and we found this other twin bed on the street. I made a day bed out of it. I finally like the way Enzo's room looks, at least for now.

I spend my days organizing a lot. It's more for my sanity than for actual results because as you can imagine living in a small space with 4 (soon going to be 5) people is no easy task.

I've been feeling great and I am thankful every day for it. I know I've said this a million times but not having postpartum depression is a whole different experience. Maybe I will have 10 kids after all.

Maria Aurea is a joy. She is so sweet and so patient. I am running around all day with her and Enzo and she doesn't seem to mind. This is a picture of her doing tummy time. She hates tummy time so she ends up falling asleep on her tummy. She loves sleeping on her tummy.

Enzo is great and smart and sweet and angry and defiant and nice and everything all at once. But my favorite thing about Enzo is that when I ask him to throw away the baby's diaper he says "yes, please."

I don't have any pictures of Christian because I never see him. Today he is sending off an application to a  a big grant. On Tuesday he is sending off another. Last night he came to bed at 1:30am and woke up at 6:00. I can't wait to get my husband back. Until then, I love him from afar.

The weather is lovely and we play outside a lot. I'm also back on my feet cooking. I started cooking for food not bombs and also started a new blog with mariko called The Little Foodie. We got over 30 meals from friends when Maria was born and our freezer is still full but I was ready to start cooking again.

life is good.
I'd love to hear updates from you guys.
How is life going for you these days?

happy anniversary.

I wrote the post on a day where I had gone to bed at 7:00pm and got out of bed at 8:00am (woke up for feedings of course...but still)

Today I'm feeling way more crusty.

hopefully having your mom around will help (but don't let christian be so busy he neglects you).
