Two babies

This is my third day with just me and my two little girls at home, and so far so good. We are having a lot of fun. But today I wanted to post some of the photos from when Gramma and Granddaddy were here. Gramma was such a big help to us for the first couple of weeks! And it was wonderful to have both of them in town to play this last weekend. I love where we live but really wish we could have that family time more often. It is so much fun.

I remember when Ella was born thinking, how did I ever think I was busy before I had a baby? And now I think, how did I ever think I was busy before I had two babies? But honestly, it hasn't been that bad. Not at all bad actually. It is actually a really big blessing to have these two beautiful little babies to take care of. Sometimes there are more things two do than hands available, but I've found it's ok to just slow down. And this is spoken 2 days after a night of probably about 2 hours of sleep (mostly Ella's fault, but Nora shared a bit of the blame as well). We were able to hang in there. And it is fun to have a crowd at home. Overall, I can give a good report for our first week. The one problem for you, dear readers, is that this slower pace and competition for Mama's hands means that there is less time for typing. There have been so many things I have thought, oh I should blog about that. But then by the time I have time to sit down at the computer uninterrupted about 12-20 hours later, the mood is gone and I just want to veg, hence the update on new blogs to read. Anyway, overall it is great to be a mother of 2 sweet girls. And slowly but surely, I'll tell you more about it.
