I REALLY miss my blog =(
Someday I know I'll have time to get back to it on a more regular basis...

I feel a little like I'm living in a fog, kind of just moving through the day...and night.. Emily is a difficult baby. She is VERY fussy and cries a lot. I'm really hoping this passes quickly. When she is happy it's wonderful. When she's not it can be overwhelming. She makes the funniest faces. She's made a few baby cooing noises. It'll be fun when she starts making more sounds and really smiling =)

Noah had his last soccer game of the season. I'm VERY happy that it's over for now. It is way too cold to sit outside watching a soccer game right now. I am NOT ready for winter but it is certainly on it's way.

Emily hates baths. Really she hates being messed with in general lol. She is a very sensitive baby. After she takes her bath her hair is all curly and crazy. I still can't believe she has so much of it!

Emily LOVES her daddy. Like a LOT. When I can't calm her down he can...right away usually. I guess what they say is true...Mommy's boys and Daddy's girls lol.

My sister in law came to visit us over the weekend. Noah was very sad when she left. It was so nice to see her!

Emily is already growing so much! She weighed 9 lbs. at her one month checkup. I'm already putting away some of her clothes...some of it not even worn yet!

I've been feeling incredibly guilty lately about Noah =(
I don't have a lot of time to spend with him now and that makes me sad. I barely have time to go through his backpack and check that his homework was done the right way. I know it'll get better soon. I just wish it was better now. He made a comment last night that he needs more attention. That really broke my heart. I need to try to spend time with JUST him.

So for the most part I am tired. I am REALLY tired but I am happy. When Emily is having a crying fit I try to remind myself that babies aren't babies forever and someday I'll wish she was little again. It's already been 5 weeks! The time has gone by so fast....

Hopefully I'll be back soon. Hopefully I'll have more to blog about than being tired lol. If only I had time to read...


  1. It does get better, I promise! My oldest liked to pick out the baby's clothes and what kind of diaper pattern at the store, it helped her feel more included and like she was taking care of baby. I told myself the same things and time really does fly by but those first few weeks are the roughest and honestly I don't miss that part.

    And she's so cute! Those faces are absolutely adorable!

  2. She's so cute! Hope the fuzziness stops soon and you get all cuddles!

  3. You're doing such an amazing job, Ashley!! It must be tough for Noah to adjust, for all of you to adjust, but it'll happen. Noah knows you love him, and once that fog lifts a little bit more, you'll be able to spend more time with him more easily. You can only put so much pressure on yourself. You go girl!
