Sometimes you're the windshield: sometimes you're the bug!

This week, gratefully, I feel like the windshield so far! This is my first week home alone with my two babies and so far we have all showered/bathed and eaten all three meals. Those were my only expectations as I embarked as a mother of two under eighteen months. So far, so good!!! Avery is such a good baby. She pretty much melts my heart every time I look at her! My only complaint is her day/night confusion. It keeps me up most nights but I know that is only temporary so I am trying to hang on! Brady has been pretty darn fabulous considering he was center of the universe over here. He has been a little more aggressive than usual and has been kind of annoyed with me at times but I know he is adjusting and I am trying to be understanding. All in all, though, it's going pretty good. I just feel lucky that Brady still naps - oh how I love naptime!!! Here's a little preview of her newborn pics and our family photo shoot!
