Single mom(kinda)

Honestly, I give props to single mothers. I knew it was hard, but Matt's new work schedule leaves me single parenting 4:7 days of the week, sometimes more. When I had just James, it was easy (his old job). With 2 young ones, this is extremely hard. He works either 730a-730p not getting home til 815 or 730p-730a leaving home at 615 and sleeping until 5. I cherish his days off. They are glorious, oh so glorious. Sometimes, I cook dinner and James and I eat before daddy gets home. Nights like tonight, I am giving James snacks. I'll cook around 730 and we will eat when daddy gets home. As long as he has snacks, I'm ok with that. Disney junior has became my friend. James loves mickey, and sadly, the shows catch Kelsey's attention too so I can do things. Well, there you have it. Two blogs in a row. Ha!

Where Have I been?

Wow. Apparently I do not do well with blogging. Originally, I created this blog with all intentions of keeping it updated. Obviously, that didn't happen. So if you do not have me on twitter or Facebook or know me in the real world, you probably have no clue what's been going on in our lives since the last post James was 7.5m. He will be two on the 30. Two. How is that even possible. Anywho, let's take a few steps backwards. 

When James was 9mo, we got the biggest surprise of our lives! We were expecting again. A completely natural pregnancy. Shocked and scared, we were thrilled to be welcoming another little one into our lives. We found out before Christmas of last year we were having a girl. We were ecstatic. 

The job situations straightened out but then went to crap. I think I'm finally in the perfect teaching position though! We bought a house before little girl was born too:) 

Let me introduce you to Kelsey Jessa :) 

She was born 6/10/13. She is 5 months old. I was going for a VBAC and thought I had the perfect OB for that. Luckily I ended up with a fantastic team. My water actually broke on it's on but 6 hours in still no dilation or contractions so I was induced. They did EVERY thing possible to get me going. I never went past a five. I labored for 54 hours and I was tired and finished. I was a five for a whole day. Nothing was happening. So I had a failed trial of labor but I at least got a chance. 

Life is rather chaotic around here now. But I enjoy very moment of it. I will try to check in more often but until next time I'll leave you with some super cute cuteness:)
