the heat

this heat is awful...I mean I love the sun, but this is a little to extreme for my liking. yesterday we went up to my moms,as sam was off, & spent the day in the pool! I can tell both Nathalie and William are just like mom what the heck is this heat...Nathalie has been drinking like a fish (and no not alcohol lol) and William nursing like a well baby hee hee....the poor little things are doing all they can to stay hydrated, and I've been changing the diapers that prove they are...William will be 8 weeks on thursday, and he has his 2 month check up on the 6th, it goes way to fast.

sleep? what's that?

since yesterday William has been nursing every hour and a half to two hours....I think I snuck in a 3 hour stretch early this morning....I am exhausted...On top of that Sam was off monday and tuesday and Nathalie has just been besides herself today b/c he isn't at home :( mommie apparently isn't good enough today!!!! Tomorrow I hope to get some rest and go up to Nana's house in the afternoon*(after nap time)....fingers crossed for some much needed sleep tonight....William is nursing once again.....I am simply his milk buffet if nothing else lol....

I made it out of the house by 9:30 2 days in a row :)

Thank goodness for small miracles!!!! Yesterday I took William and Nathalie to playgroup at 10 and we actually made it out of the house, to babies r us (I HATE THAT PLACE) and to the park by just a few minutes after 10....and that was even after William stayed up until 3 in the morning (boy that was fun lol)...Then today I made an appt for 1010 for William to get pictures taken for Daddy's day and we were actually at Parkway Plaza early enough to get Nathalie and Momma a smoothie at Jamba Juice before the pictures WOW I can't believe it I am actually being able to morph into the real world again. Right now my 2 little lovlies are sleeping both of them simutanousely its a miracle what am I doing, I'm gonna go follow their lead and catch a cat nap myself...till next time.....momma bear

cleaning fairy

I really wish there was a cleaning fairy, I woke up this morning took one look at my house and wanted to crawl back in bed...its like a tornado struck, and not in just one area EVERYWHERE....see we have tornado Nathalie in the front room who has strewn her toys anywhere imaginable. Then we have tornado Sam in our bedroom as he shucks his dirty clothes on the floor (um hi honey we have a laundry basket lol)...and then we have tornado everyone (including me) in the kitchen...as the dishes are in the sink and I am thinking ok in between nursing william, and feeding nathalie i really need to get this place cleaned up; so i'm pretty sure that today will be a little more tv for Nathalie than she needs but thats okay i guess since we were outside all day yesterday and will be most of tomorrow as well.

yipee the cast is gone

Nathalie got her cast off today and she couldn't be happier!!!! The first thing she asked Daddy for when we got home was a bath... Finally a real bath that Daddy can manage on his own awww how nice to have her back to the full Nathalie.....I think I'll wrap her in bubblewrap so she doesn't break anything else...William was soo good the whole time we were gone, he nursed once and slept the rest of the time, in other words mommy is gonna be up all night lol....oh well its part of mommyhood..

the zoo

yesterday *(monday)* Sam was off and we made our first trip to the zoo as a family of 4.... It was such a fun day, Nathalie is at the age now where she is really starting to enjoy days like this. She said lelefant to the elephants Mamal to the Camel's and Jafff to the giraffe's its so cute. Yesterday was a day that i really appreciated through the eyes of a 2 year old.....man to be 2 again!!!! William did pretty good too, only had to stop and feed him once while actually in the zoo; and 2 times in the parking lot one going and one leaving....I had made us a simple lunch of Turkey sandwiches and string cheese which was nice to sit at a shady table and eat!! Oh and Sam is now convinced that we need a double stroller *(we have one that we can use once william is 6 months old) but he's sure now that we need one for now!!! So I think I'm just going to start looking on craigslist and at the resale shops! Oh well, hope everyone else is doing well!

How about this extremely hot weather....all I can say is Thank God i'm not pregnant anymore!!!!! Poor Nathalie wanted to go in the pool at Nana's sooo bad yesterday and couldn't b/c of her cast!!! Needless to say we both can't wait until it comes off on Wednesday!!! Today William is 1 month old, I can't believe how fast its already gone by!!! I'm so sad to think that in just 2 short months I'll be back at work :( anyways hope everyone is doing well.
