so this week is josh's 3rd week back at work (or is it the 4th?). i am adapting to life at home with the kiddos by myself. it is the hardest job i have ever had. i joke with my mom that when i have to go back to work (april 12th--ugh) it will be so easy compared to taking care of these two little ones :) i wish i could stay home with them forever though! someday soon.
the babies are learning so much every day! they are smiling more and more which makes my heart melt! they are both almost 12 lbs now and are growing so well. they have also slept a couple of 7 hour stretches in the last week which has been heaven-sent. sleepless nights take their toll on me after a while. they usually wake up once sometime between 12 and 3am and then usually get up at 5 for the day. i have been reading a book called "healthy sleep habits, happy child" and it advocates naps whenever the babies act sleepy so i'm trying that today. i'm still reading to figure out the whole method, but we'll see how it works out.
i love the rain but wish it would clear up so i can get out walking/jogging more. on nice days the babies and i go for walks and yesterday i mowed the lawn after we got back. wow, that was a workout! (in my defense, our backyard has quite the hill). i have gone jogging a couple of times recently too but i have a long way to go before i get back into shape.
last night while josh was at school i had eden in my right arm and ezra in my left and i just rocked and sang to them as they fell asleep. it was truly the sweetest thing i have ever seen. i have an awesome husband who works so hard and helps me so much. we have a house that we love and live near family and friends who help us a lot. we have the gospel of Jesus Christ and a loving Heavenly Father who takes care of us. i feel like the luckiest woman in the world.
