I've NEVER been so overwhelmed, or thought less of myself than I do right now in life. The overwhelmed part gets easier everyday, the liking myself part won't get better for a while, but I have to remember....
these bags under my eyes are worth getting up most of the night every night
this spare tire + muffin top + saggy girls + saddle bags + droopy butt + cellulite are also worth being able to feed my baby what she should be eating right now
this messy, unorganized, smelly house, and the lack of good homemade meals it puts out right now will all change, and be back to where it was a year ago
do crafts with my kids again
make dinner at home 6-7 nights a week again (not from a box)
have a home that is ok to let anyone in at anytime again
get out of stretchy pants and maternity pants to go on dates again
allow my picture to be taken again (even if it's a year from now)
take all my kids out to do something fun everyday again
find time in the morning to work out again
I have a hard time remember that all of these things WILL happen again.. Every week I think, "this is the week I'll have the sleep I need to get in the workouts I want" Or this is the week that I won't have to go pick up Jase in the middle of dinner making time. Or this week I'll put enough make up on and jump in a picture with my girls. But it hasn't happened yet. Soon enough.

I LOVE today. Vivian learned to laugh. It's so sweet and cute. I love it. It always makes her hiccup too. So so sweet. To this day, Pearcen's laugh still warms my heart, ok ok, so does Boston's, Kamryn's and Jaden's. Now we have an extra laugh around here! YAY!!!!

My sister Paula introduced me to BzzAgent a few years ago and it's been so much fun! I've got to try all kinds of products from mascara to cookies to diapers. I love it! This last month I've got to test out Garnier Fructis's triple nutrition shampoo and conditioner. They sent me a full size bottle of both and really great coupons for more. This was a product I actually LOVE! It smells so great, and the conditioner is really softening. I love it

I can't believe it was 2 whole months ago that I had this girl. It seems like just yesterday. I'm so mad that she's trying to hold her cute little head up. I have LOVED the baby stage with this one. I think because I haven't stressed myself out or felt guilt about breastfeeding. And she still nurses a few times a day and I pump, but I'm 100% ok giving her a formula bottle or 2 a day. And so is she. She's the smiliest baby ever. Even if you're not trying to make her smile, you'll look down, and she'll be smiling. She's fantastic. She's still so little, which I LOVE. She's about the same as Boston at birth, but less jowls. She LOVES to sit and watch you talk to her. She tries moving her mouth and makes cute little sounds. I don't remember my other ones smiling or cooing as early as Vivvy. She was smiling at 5 weeks, like REAL smiles, and cooing a 7 weeks. I feel like every mile stone is as big as it was with Jaden, because i know it's the last time to see these milestones happen. ugh, baby bibby...stop growing up!!!!!

I have the cutest kids ever. It's true. Seriously, I squeeze their cheeks daily and I can't help but go "Mmm" about 20x a day while I hold Vivvy. They're so superbly cute!.
And hilarious. Pearce is in a phase of bonking himself on the head and making his eyes go loopy and Boston loves to sing to Vivian when she's crying and he sings, "Bibian, I wish you stop crying, stop crying Bibian". They're all fantastic!

I LOVE THIS BABY!!!!! She's fantastic!
Her blessing was on Easter Sunday. I REALLY wish we would have waited another month or 2....or 3. I felt a little pressured to have it on Easter Sunday, and it all went well, but I think I was still a little too post partum, and stressed, and she was too little and, whatever. She's a doll and I love her baby bibby guts!
