5 Weeks Old

I am finally getting a chance to sit down and type on my blog. Who would have ever thought my days would simply fly by? How people have more than one child AND work is beyond me. I have a new respect for those who have multiples. When RJ gets home in the afternoon and asks me what I have done all day, I tell him that my day flew by. It's hard to believe that laundry, diaper changes, baths, feedings, cleaning house, plus giving our sweet puppy attention, etc. can literally EXHAUST me. I mean, I thought I was pretty energetic going into this. However, we are getting up multiple times a night and not as rested as we were "prebaby", so I know that has a lot to do with it. BUT, all that said, it is TOTALLY worth it. He is the most precious angel baby and I wouldn't trade a minute of it. We are all doing well, and things are going really smoothly at our house. I love being at home with Tripp and I am so thankful that I am going to be able to stay home with him until January. We are learning all about his quirks and facial expressions. I know all of his cries, and what he needs. I am ready to be on a schedule, so we are working on that. I absolutely love being a mommy! And R.J. is a natural daddy. We are both smitten! Here are some pics of little Tripp.

They are already best friends!

This is right after a bath, which was caused by the "treat" that he left us in his diaper...WOW what a mess.
