Yoo Hoo… I’m still here! My head is surfacing above the sleep-deprived fog that surrounds our home these days. Kind of funny that it is 2:05 in the morning and I’m surfacing now! I am pumping breastmilk for our boys – I try to do this every 3 hours or so. I know this is a curiosity to many people as to how this works for multiples. I really do not know and am learning along the way. haha! Right now Crews is only on breastmilk b/c his little tummy does not do well on formula. The other two boys get 1-2 bottles of breastmilk a day. I feel like Bessie the cow – but, am so in love with these 3 tiny beings that it’s okay. (I pump right now b/c everything needs to be measured. Soon, I hope to begin nursing all the boys. We will see how it works, though. No guilt, I try to tell myself).
I’ve started about 3 posts in the middle of the night, and my brain conks out mid-way through. I’m going to try to consolidate these in this post. The last few nights have been crazy. Being a new mom of 3 baby boys and 1 toddler girl has proved to be very draining physically, but not as bad as I thought it would be. (I don’t think that sentence really makes sense, but I know what I’m saying.. :-).) I know the Lord gives strength to the weary and power to the weak! I feel both of these. I am doing my best to blog, but my brain is not really geared for this right now. What pushes me to write is that I don’t want to forget a thing. I want to remember every detail of this hazy life right now. I know it will be inscribed on my heart forever but, yet how do I put it into words? Last night as I crawled into bed next to Chris, my heart was so full it felt like it was going to break. Part of this is because my life is so blessed, part of this is because my hormones could about shoot me to the moon and back. It will be nice when they begin to settle some more.
Anyway, I just wanted to let everyone know that we are still alive and hanging in there. I hope to blog more in the near future. I definitely need to be taking more pictures for sure, though! It will get done… along with all the other little adjustments. It just takes time. Thank you for all the prayers and support everyone! We love you!
Oh, and by the way…can you stand the little picture of my 8 little feet for the header? Thank you AUNT NANCY for that great photo! I can’t wait to see more!
