I am blessed

Things here are good.

Crazy and hectic and tiresome, but good.

Matthew is working a *lot* and is out of town a *lot*. It will be like this for the rest of April and the first three weeks of May. Thankfully I have a wonderfully supportive family and three lovely sons.

Here is the picture that we included in Thomas's birth annnouncement:

Thomas is doing fabulously. He is the most wonderful baby ever! He is a CHUNK and is, at three weeks, already over 10 pounds.

He literally sleeps ALL the time. Which is very helpful since it's usually just me taking care of all three boys all day.

The other boys are doing great, too.

My health is fine. My leg is healing though it will take months for it to return to normal. I am having to give myself Lovenox shots twice a day for three more months. Ugh. :(

I am ready for the middle-of-the night feedings to stretch out, as I am very tired from not getting more than two or three consecutive hours of sleep. But this won't last forever.

The weather here is beautiful lately.

My dear sweet Benjamin will turn two (!!!!) next Saturday. I can barely believe it.

Not much else to say. As usual, it's time to nurse Thomas. Again.

Here are some pictures before I go.

My boys playing outside on a beautiful spring day

I love these guys!

My almost-two-year old

One of the rare moments when Thomas's eyes were open

"Thank you, thank you very much..."


All three of my boys during lunch

Andrew is showing a slight interest in Thomas. More so than he ever did (or does) toward Benjamin!

Yes, she does. Yes, she does.

awwww! Your boys are so adorable! Thomas is HUGE, lol. You seem to be doing a good job holding down the fort, your house looks so CLEAN!

Glad you are beginning to get better. I will keep praying for you. I know handling a newborn, illness, a sick toddler, and a preschooler all on your own is hard. Enjoy the moments as you can.

Your boys are so so so soooooo cute!

Adrienne said...

Looks like life is good! So glad things are going well for you all! I love that you live on a cul-de-sac (spell)! I want that for our next house!!

Christia said...

Love your boys! <3 I can't wait to know what I'm having to see if I'm having another boy!!!!

I am so happy for your family and that you all are sleepy but doing well! Oh, how I wish Zach and Benjamin could play together!

Laura said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE the picture of all of you! Thomas is beautiful!

Wow, way to hold the fort down, Mom! Thomas looks just like Andrew in the pic with his eyes open. Happy Birthday to Benjamin!
On a side note, my BWF (Best Work Friend) is pregnant and she is planning to name a boy Benjamin.
