about us...

I'm The Mommy, a SAHM to Maggie & Ellie. I'm married to Big Daddy, an engineer, grad student and our hard-working provider.
I blog instead of scrapbooking in hopes of preserving a part of our life for the future.
We enjoy beach trips, going to Church and spending time together...all as a family...because that's what we are.

Both girls were up at a little after 6:00 this morning. That's a full two hours earlier than what I was starting to get used to. We took advantage of having a long morning today and decided to go to Wal.mart for no reason at all.

We have always lived in a town without T.arget or an indoor mall. Sadly, Wal.mart has always been the place that we would go just to kill time and hang out. We are a little closer to both a T.arget and a mall, but I didn't feel like spending any extra time in the car. Since having Baby Ellie, our "for no reason" shopping trips have been non-existent. Baby Ellie slept in her car seat while The Muffin and I looked at Christmas decorations and toys. A good time was had by all!

We managed a little trip out yesterday afternoon. We went to City Hall to pay the water bill and then walked to the library. The cashier at City Hall thought I was brave for making the effort to pay the bill in person. I told her that we were also going to the library, but I left out the part about Baby Ellie fighting sleep and crying for quite a while before I put her in the sling. By the time we walked into the library, Ellie was asleep. I wore her facing me for the first time yesterday. She had her little head on my chest and had a very nice nap.

Making little trips out with both girls makes me feel a little more normal. It's not as easy as it was when it was just me & Muf, but it's not that hard. I always find myself struggling to get out the door, but once we're in the car, it all gets a lot easier. More than anything, I know it feels more like normal for The Muffin and that is great!

Now, I'm off to hang diapers out to dry. Both girls are asleep for the first time in a long time and I think I need a cup of coffee.

We're going to the store tomorrow with our newborn and I'm nervous! Especially as this is the first baby I've successfully nursed without supplementing or using bottles.

How well I remember those days! It took me awhile to feel comfortable going out w/ my 2-year-old and a newborn. I sometimes wondered if it was worth the trouble, but taking a break from staying at home all day was usually good for all three of us!
