Thank you so so much for your sweet words on yesterday’s post… the birth story.  I LOVED hearing your stories so thank you so much for taking the time to share!

*Let’s talk about a few of the things happening over here the last two days (with many bullet points included)!  This post is brought to you by Skye on my chest while sporting all black (Brooke asked me the other day why I wear the same thing every day… she caught me).

*The weather around here is sure making it easy to not be running.  The inversion in Utah is crazy right now and this is what it looks like in the mornings outside.  Yeah, I am pretty happy with the idea of Christmas movies in bed with Skye in the mornings vs trying to run in this craziness (well, when it is this bad I actually always run inside because the air quality is so bad)!

*When Brooke woke up on Tuesday morning the first thing she wanted was her baby sister.  It was just the three of us on Tuesday (Andrew had a shift at the hospital) so I had my first taste of having a newborn on my own.  We all survived, ate delicious food and didn’t get anything productive done… Perfect.

*And then she was so excited to come straight to the baby after when she got home.

*Later on I put on a headband on Skye and Brooke noticed and requested the same.  She also found the bigger version of Skye’s blanket and started carrying that around too.  My heart was pretty happy that she is happy with the idea of twinning.  Time to start buying matching outfits.

*And this is what our day looked like the rest of that day.

*A friend then brought over the most delicious honey chicken curry dish and I think I demolished it in about 30 seconds.  This hunger is unreal…

Andrew got home later on that night and luckily Skye slept all day to make sure she could spend some quality time with us once he was home.

*Now let’s talk about Wednesday—>  Oatmeal for breakfast is a big thing right now and I won mother of the year award from Brooke when I added two drops of red food coloring to make hers pink:)

*Knox came home while Brooke was at school and he did the sweetest thing.  He asked his mom if he could bring over all of his old blankets at her house so that he could give them to the baby.  He thought of doing this all on his own!

*I am loving the fact that I am back to a lot of my normal meals again and that they taste so good.  Sweet potato with chicken from the night before, avocado and a salad mix from Costco.   Please note my skin will be turning more and more orange over the next few months due to being reunited with sweet potatoes again!

*Skye had a bath and right after I took this picture she peed all over me ha so that meant I took a shower next.  I need to remember to get a diaper on there ASAP!!!


*Bows last on her head for about 12 seconds but I make sure to get some good pictures while they are on:)

*And last night my sweet friend brought over her amazing homemade bread and jam and it was the perfect dessert.  We are feeling ridiculously spoiled right now!

I left the house and dropped off Brooke to school (I forget there is a whole world outside of my house at the moment ha)! I love seeing the way Brooke looks at her new sister. Doesn’t everyone get back in bed and watch The Holiday at 9 in the morning and stay there for … Continue Reading
