A Really Great Story About Something

I have a really great story to tell. A few actually. They are witty and thought provoking, smart and hilarious. The only problem is I can't remember them. Everyday I think of the perfect blog post to write, but when I get a chance to sit down and write it, I decide to take a nap instead. Then I wake up and nurse a baby, play with a toddler, cook for a husband, and try to stay awake until bedtime. When I get another chance to write it, I decide to take a nap again. The cycle just continues with me thinking of awesome blogs to write, but deciding to nap instead. And in the rare moments that I feel rested enough to skip the sacred nap, I can't remember the awesome, witty, thought provoking story I was going to write. Sigh. 

That is what has happened with this post. I have been wracking my brain for the past hour trying to remember all of the interesting stories I wanted to share, but I can't remember a darn thing. Not a single, tiny snippet of a story that I once thought to be interesting enough to share with you all. Nothing. Nada. Nil. Plus I'm really tired and want to crawl into bed so my brain is not functioning at maximum capacity right now. Can I just ramble instead? Yes? Good.

I think I am starting to get the hang of having 2 kids. Penelope is sleeping more at night and I am happy to report that approximately 2 nights in the last 3.5 weeks have yielded 7+ hours of uninterrupted sleep for me. That means I wake up feeling semi refreshed and rested. I still require an afternoon nap everyday though. On the few days that I have opted to skip the nap, I have really, really regretted it. Nursing zaps me. Plus naps are freaking awesome. They really are.

It has only been 3.5 weeks since Penelope surged into this world from my loins, but it feels like she has always been with us. The other night, JD asked me if I remembered when it was just us and Beatrice. I had to think about it for a good minute and, I kind of don't remember. Penelope fits right in our little family so perfectly, it's hard to remember life without her. She is the sweetest, cutest, cuddliest little baby ever. I love her.

Because I can't remember the point of this post and feel as though I could ramble on forever, I'm going to wrap this up with some photos from Penelope's newborn session. I figure it is a fine way to end a post about nothing. Plus you get to see some beautiful pictures of a precious newborn. Plus plus I really want to go to bed. Until next week when I decide to stay up late to write about nothing again, enjoy these photos of our little family.

  1. Happy to hear from you again! Having a newborn is nuts all by itself... now add a toddler and you've got yourself full blown insanity! You're doing great!
    Penelope has some awesome hair, by the way... like rock star hair. :)
