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!!!

She is precious. I LOVE that last pic of her all bundled up in the carseat.

and you SOUND tired. You make me tired just reading your descriptions of your days and nights. Hang in there. I'm sure she's not too far away from cutting out one of those feedings and getting you some more sleep...

She is so adorable!! That whole "survival mode" way of living is still so fresh in my mind... the beauty of this not being your first child is that you know it will pass! I hope you're surviving well. Loved the pictures!

Congrats! She's beautiful! I'm glad to hear all went well.

I understand tired...because this newborn thing with other children is not for the wimpy.
