Us Three Girls

Today was my official first day home alone as a temporary stay at home mom. All in all everything went well. I managed to take the stroller and Jude on a walk this morning. It took Jude a little while to realize that she wasn't in control of her walks anymore. We usually let her lead the way which probably wasbad dog training on our part but oh well you live and you learn. Anyway... she caught on pretty quickly and I think I will look forward to our walks every morning.
I was really shocked on how fast the day went, I was a little worried that I was going to get bored staying at home but I think I will find plenty of things to do especially when Lennon and I start g
oing to yoga every morning and when the weather cools off I plan on taking miss Jude and miss Lennon to the park. Plus I think I could just sit and stare at lennon all day long I feel like she is changing every day.
here is a pic of her yesterday at the Nelson her first art museum experience!

i got pooped on

I have officially been pooped on! Dean was changing Lennon today and all of a sudden the poop just flew across the room onto my leg on the floor and on the door... who knew such a little thing could produce so much!
This doesn't look like a pooper does it?

but this does!

And then there were three

And then there were three (actually I should say four...sorry jude)
On August 19th at 12:06 pm our beautiful daughter Lennon Simone was brought into the world. She was 7 pounds 3 oz. and 20.5" long, she has the longest feet I have ever seen maybe she will be a runner :) I never thought I could love another human being as much as I love her and while it is so exciting to have her in our lives I do get nervous from time to time, will I be a good mom, will I be able to handle taking care of her, a full time job, being a good wife, and will I have time for me ever again? I am sure these are thoughts that run thru every new mom's mind.. at least tell me this is normal.
Anyway.... here is a pic of me a couple of days before she arrived... I was getting so uncomfortable and I
remember the first thing that came out of my mouth after I had her was "Wow... it feels so good to have her out of my belly"
I think the coolest thing was when she was born the Dr. asked "Ok, dad.. wanna see what the sex of the baby is?" and Dean in tears
said, "it's a girl" as I laid there all I could think was is she ok, does she have any problems and then as soon as I saw her I knew she was perfect.
Here is Lennon Simone.

Now Flash forward a week later we are settled in at home and starting to get into a routine, we both are getting a pretty good amount of sleep I guess as
much as you can expect. Dean has been so helpful. I get up and feed her then he will get up and rock her to sleep so I can get some rest then in the morning I get up while he lays in bed with her so I can have a little down time, drink some coffee, read the paper and eat some breakfast, this will change next week though when he has to
go back to work but I think Lennon and I will get something figured out when it is just her and I together. We have been taking her on walks with Jude every day which is good for all of us, for dean and I to get some fresh air and out of the house and for Jude who I think is warming up to Lennon (at least I think so) I don't want to exclude jude so I need to post a cute
pic of her too as well as some pics of Lennon's room
