Multitasking Mommy's!

Wow...where does the time go? I cant believe Ryleigh Kate is almost 4 weeks! Every time I have gotten on here to blog about my new bundle of joy...I am reminded that I could be using that time to nap, clean the house, run an errand or just relax. And by the time this short window of opportunity is beginning...it is over and then it is time to feed or change a diaper. My heart goes out to ALL mommy's as it is the hardest and most rewarding job ever.

Being a mommy has been the most amazing experience of my life. I love watching her and holding her. We have adjusted well to our new life and enjoying every minute. She is a WONDERFUL baby and we hope it stays that way :) We usually get 5 to 6 hours of sleep a night and then wake up to eat and change and then its back to bed for a few hours. Breastfeeding has gotten so much easier and a lot less painful. It took a few weeks of patience and strength and I am very happy that we stayed with it. She truly is a blessing.

We have had wonderful support from our family and friends over the past few weeks. I want to say a special thank you to my mom who has helped me a ton! She comes over a few times a week to help with the house and any other things, like rest and running errands that I need. I couldn't have done it without her. Ryleigh is SO lucky to have all of you in her life. We look forward to raising her with all our loved ones.

Cody Smith took her first baby pictures last week and we can't wait to get those back! Stay tuned this week for the cutest pictures you have ever seen!!
