Still Alive

Hi all - we are still alive and doing well. I am exhausted but starting to regain strength from the surgery. This is my second c-section and it has been a bit harder this time around. With the first one I was up and walking around right away. This time I was still up and moving but it was more painful - also I am not getting in naps like I was able to the first time. Cain is up and ready for the day and I need to be also. Cain has been loving on her a little bit more and feeling more comfortable with her. It's so cute to see him interact with her. He's being a great big brother.

Mom of 2...

is awesome and hard -- I'm super tired -- Carly is nursing really well :) -- Cain is doing great as a big brother -- He's not really interested in her yet but he is sweet -- Carly has her days and nights backwards so that's super fun -- I'm super sore from the surgery still but getting more energy every day -- Can't wait to get out of the house more, being stuck in the house is getting old -- this heat sucks, 90 degrees is to damn hot -- Tropical Smoothie is becoming my new favorite place -- I could use a maid and someone to help me start packing up our house -- I hope to get back to writing regular posts when I can when I am not so exhausted.

Can't wait to share more pictures with everyone but right now I'm trying to figure out how to be a mom to two and not fall over in exhaustion.

We celebrated our...

5 year anniversary over the weekend. We had a pretty low key day but it was relaxing and fun. It was perfect. 
Cain spent the day with Grandma and Grandpa so Chris and I had the entire day to spend together. We started out with having lunch. Actually sitting down and enjoying our lunch - not in a hurry or trying to entertain a child until our food was done. Then we went and did some shopping. This was more my idea obviously - I walked around Target and actually looked at everything I wanted to look at. Not just in and out. It was amazing! We came home for a bit - and I took a nap :) Then we went out for dinner, just hung out, went for a walk in the evening, watched movies, etc. We are so exciting - it was a great day though. I can't believe 5 years ago we got married - it went by fast.

Two more days...

until my last day of work - forever! (well at my current job anyway) I am a little sad to be leaving and also excited to move on to a new adventure. To be really honest it's been hard to go to work and be productive when you know your time is limited there and it doesn't help that the only way my body feels comfortable is when I am laying down :P
So two more days and then....well I don't know what will come next. I will get to stay at home with the babes for a bit and see how that goes. I have always wanted to be a stay at home mom but it doesn't really fit me. I need to get out and do something so we shall see.
We are going to go look at a rental house near the Ann Arbor area on Friday. Crossing my fingers that we like it. We still haven't found a rental yet so I feel like we need to hurry up with that. One less thing to check of my list of things I've been stressing about.
Then by next week the new babe should be here. Any day now. I am so ready to be done being pregnant but still don't feel "ready" for her to be here. In my head I have so much to still do although I know I'm set for her. (apparently I'm a weirdo)

Totally Random: Cain likes to lay on my lap and have me scratch his back. Good thing this baby is coming soon because I am running out of lap space.
