Audrey Elizabeth

Right now might be the first moment that I've had a chance to sit down and even think about blogging little Audrey's birth.  The transition from 2 to 3 kids has been the busiest yet.  Not hardest.  But busiest.  I am up around 6 am most mornings and go NON-STOP until I collapse in bed around 10:30 pm.  And then I am up at midnight, 2 am, and 4 am.  Sometimes Audrey skips the 4 am feeding and I feel like a million bucks.  But not usually.
I love my 3 kids.  Noah and Suzy have bonded in this transition.  And they both love Audrey to pieces.  Audrey is the calmest, sweestest baby alive.  Cute too!
Today marks 4 weeks from her birth, 4 weeks since my 3rd C-section, and 2 weeks since my Mom left town.  I've come a long way.  I am looking forward to Thanksgiving to be able to lace up my running shoes and go for a jog.  I have daydreamed about it since I had to stop running last summer.
I'm in survival mode.  I still need to drop 15-20 lbs so I don't know what to wear ever.  I don't leave the house much because it's too much work with 3 kids.  I spend most of the day fulfilling little kids needs, making meals, and cleaning.  And nursing. 
I'm very tired.
Here are some pictures of the big day:  October, 10, 2012.
Welcome Baby Audrey.  We love you!!!
