Two things I have learned this week:

1. I REALLY should've taken my mother's advice and slept more while she was here.

2. Dieting + Extreme Exhaustion = 1 very grumpy momma

I think I'll hold off on the weight loss-- it turns out, I need chocolate in order to keep my good nature right now.

Pampers Precious Moments

Okay, so during one of my sleep-deprived, staring-at-nothing, completely zoning out moments, I discovered that my diaper box has any amount of Pampers Moments. These consist of those heart-stopping moments of pure perfection (which are feeling rather rare right now). The one that I found myself staring at is 

Moment #37    It's so precioius the way he curls his little fingers around mine. 
And there are many, many more. But I have come up with a few of my own- just through personal experience, and I am posting them here for your viewing pleasure (also, the following pictures are in no specific order- they are just random moments from the last three weeks):

Moment #15     It's so precious the way your two-week old has finally switched his awake time from 2 in the afternoon to 9 in the morning thereby permitting EVERYONE to enjoy naptime together, when suddenly- your two-year old decides she doesn't want/need a nap anymore.

Moment #26     It's so precious the way he peed all over the bed, mid-diaper-change, at 2am and you were so tired that you didn't even think about changing the sheets and laid down and slept in it. Oh. blessed. sleep.

Moment #38    (Yes, I picture this one coming right after the pampers moment #37) It's so precious the way you just leaked right through your nursing bra, tank top, and shirt at the thought of how cute your little guy is!

I can just picture my mom telling me to ENJOY these moments while I can. And although I sound very sarcastic, I am doing just that.
I sure love these two!!

These weeks have just flown, and honestly, I'm hoping that the handful of letters that Quinn pulled off the fridge and keeps in her "private stash" on her umbrella table, is really just a coincidence....

And counting.....

It was brought to my attention that the only picture I have posted of myself in, well....  a long time, was my doctored "fat" pic that was included in my last post. So, in the interest of disillusioning all of you who now believe me to be 300 pounds, this is what I meant by "whale."

Also, this last week has not been without it's share of surprises- Quinn has been really sick and not wanting to do anything other than watch movies all day. Which, quite honestly was just fine with me, because I am past the point of wanting to even move. But today when I took her into the doctor, we found out she has tonsillitis and a pretty gross ear infection. So, she is now on an oral antibiotic AND ear drops. Hopefully we can get her better before baby brother makes his entrance! Which, by the way--- 5 Days!!!
