Time is FLYING By

I can't believe that it is already mid August and I am just now making my first blog post for the month!

Well... actually, I can believe it.

Life has been a little busy the past month, to say the least.  And blogging or anything to do with the computer, among lots of other things, has simply not been on my list of priorities.  All the energy I had before Aubrey Lane was born has completely diminished.  I nested and kept my house pretty clean before her arrival... now I would be embarrassed for anyone to know how long it's been since my floors were mopped :-/  My joke I tell lately is that getting my teeth brushed before noon is an accomplishment these days... however, there is more truth than comedy to that statement.  Regardless we have truly enjoyed our new family of four!

Life has been good!

It has been hard, but it has definitely been good.

Can you believe that Aubrey Lane is FOUR WEEKS old today?!?!  

I can't!  

But she is.  She will be a month old this Friday.  And she is growing like a weed! She weighs over 8 pounds and no longer has that dazed, cross-eyed newborn look.  Her looks have changed as she grows; she has her own unique look; not just a baby look. (makes me sad how quickly she is growing) She is tracking and discovering new things everyday.

Like her big brother.

Jude has also noticed that there is a new family member in the home.  However, it hasn't affected him much.  He observes her with a calm curiosity from time to time, but carries out his regular routine for the most part.  

These pictures were taken the day we came home from the hospital.  She has grown so much since then.

Now that school is starting that routine is going to change for all of us.  Jude will be starting back at LSU Preschool and also doing some homebound services through our local preschool.  

Actually, I'm pretty excited about all of these changes.  Right now, I am still under restriction not to lift anything over 10 pounds so that means that caring for Jude leaves me completely dependent among other people.  Hopefully, in two weeks my doctor will release me to a "normal" lifestyle, whatever normal is for my family now.

Hope everyone is enjoying the last bits of their summer.  It sure did fly by, as does all time these days.  Make sure you are making the most of it!
