Doin okay

I was really nervous for Drew to go back to work and to be out numbered by my children.  It's been a week now and so far so good.  I'm sure in the future I will eat those words, but it has really been great.  Little Colbie just hangs out and sleeps most of the time, which leaves me with my Cambry time still.  Not that I wouldn't give anything to have Drew home with us again though!  He had two weeks off and we had a great time.  It was so helpful to have him home, and I think it was important for all of us.  Colbie got to bond with her dad, Cambry got to know that he is still going to give her so much attention, and I got to fall in love with my husband all over again.  He put so much energy into playing with Cambry,  late night feedings with Colbie, and taking care of me after birthing an eight pounder.  There is just something about watching him with the girls that tugs at my heart.  On top of all of this when the girls were sleeping he would run out and try to take care of yard.  He reseeded the front and backyard, and removed a tree that died and replanted a new one.  He did, however, find a little time for some guilty pleasure as well.  While Cambry was napping Drew was taking care of Colbie and I found them watching "Tyra" (the Tyra Banks talk show).  The most disturbing part was that this happened two days in a row!  One episode was on women who beat their men, and he thought it was hilarious.  I didn't, so I punched him in the face and told him to go do the dishes.  :)   But seriously, I really appreciate everything that he does for our family when he is home, and when he goes to work for us. 

Drew hard at work

Colbie just chillin

Colbie and Brielle hanging out in their matching elephant pj's from their Aunt Aungie



  1. I read your post, which I loved and then I saw your counter on Colbie. I cannot believe she is 3 weeks old already! Where did the time go? Love the pics too :)

  2. I'm so glad to read that you are doing well. Don't let those girls team up on you! :)

    I love the pics of Colbie and Brielle! It actually looks like Brielle is bigger in the picture but I'm guessing she isn't filling out her pjs as much Colbie. :) Super cute!!!!
