I know I know....I haven't blogged since Tuesday. I am so sorry, especially to my avid readers. I guess you could say that we are still adjusting to having 2 little ones and working full time. I am learning that there is not a lot of down time with my life right now...and I actually do love it. So here is the update on our lives right now and some pictures to follow.
I finished my first full week of working full time since having Sophia this week. It was a challenge to get through but I made it! My sweet Sophia, who is cute as a bug's ear, is still having trouble sleeping at night and staying awake during the day. So by Friday...I was exhausted...but I made it! Another thing that is happening is that Sophia loves to be cuddled around 8:00 pm. This is why I haven't been able to blog. John goes to bed around 8:00 and Sophia has claimed this time as her own. There is no putting her down...or you hear about it! We have found that she is quite particular but let me tell you...she smiles at you and it melts your heart. We just keep telling ourselves that when she is 12, we will be wishing that she still wanted to cuddle...so we are soaking it in!
John gets funnier by the day. He truly loves his little sister and he is excited that she is going to Jewell's tomorrow. He talks all the time and seems to remember the strangest things.
Matt survived his 2nd week of paternity leave. I think he was ready to go back to work by the end of it though. :)
Here are some pictures with dialogue to go along...

John loving my headbands!
We went to the Springfield Cardinals game on Saturday. After the Cardinals played, my dad's baseball team played against Willow Springs. It was a fun filled baseball day. John got to walk on the field and go in the locker room after the game was over. He loved it! Here are the pictures of the day...

Too cute! Congrats on finishing your first week back to work. It's going to be a long haul but it'll get easier from here I hope.

Wow, what a week. I don't see how you do it, staying up all night with a little one and the managing to get up to another room full of kids in the morning. I bet you are ready for summer break.
I love the baseball photos. Trey is like John always wanting to try on the headbands. I do love the baseball bow.
Hope you have a great week!

I have never thought this before but in the last two baseball pictures John and Sophia look a lot alike.
