New Woman


I can't tell you all just how much the MUCH NEEDED night out has done for me. Andy and I had a blast, we held hands, we laughed, he kissed my forhead (that is my Favorite), we hugged, we sang and we were JUST SILLY! Thanks Angee ... I didn't realize how much I was in a slump! Friday night, even with the tossing and the turning, never mind the "cramps" I had a BLAST!

Saturday was amazing too - I am on cloud nine now! I feel like a new woman! Saturday I asked some people if they wanted to come over and Fish?! I really asked because Andy had to work from 3am - 5pm and I knew I would need help with the babies. You see the babies are NO trouble until nap time or bed time. Then it is so hard to keep Bowden quiet enough to put her down ... then I need a extra hand! haha I knew he would be home by bedtime, but I wasn't sure about Tatum's 2 naps ... so I decided I would ask some friends if they wanted to come over and fish! It worked - we had a blast ... Pat and Brandi brought their Daughter ... she is 5 she swam, played on the swing set and helped so much with both babies. Poppy (Andy's Dad) is always a HUGE help, he was there, my dad, my mom and another friends son, Conner, he is 7 ... we all had a blast it was BEAUTIFUL and yes they did catch fish, everyone but me caught fish! I think the Ouu Sie (out side) even wore Bowden out, homie slept from 9:45 - 3:30 it was awesome - see there is more of that new woman thing!

Andy had to work Sunday 7am-3pm my parents drove the boat up and took me, Tatum, and Bowden out ... it was a blast - see below pictures! Bowdie got sea sick ... I think! I felt so bad! But again he slept 9:30 - 3:30 yeah and when I got up to get ready for work at 7 him and Andy were still fast asleep!

How was your weekend? I hope it was as great as mine!
Why wont they nap like this with me?!

So glad that you got to get out and enjoy yourself. Trust me I have been in your shoes (two kids 14 months apart) and it is tough, but we lived to tell our story:). Luke and Alex are so cute together. Steve and I usually have a good laugh about them every day. It is truly amazing.

Sounds like you need to do that more often! So glad you had a good time.

AWWW....isn't it frustrating they sleep like logs with their dad?

Jamie always said it was because he didn't stress out like I did and they would fall asleep. I dont know...still bugged me.

Glad you feel like a new woman!
