Fortunately I had emergency surgery and my family helped out so we are getting back in the swing of things now.

    Rock n play, nipple shield and boppy pillow

    Staying home or going back to work?
    Going back to work on July 22nd. Sounds odd but I've always thought it was important to be a working mom. I want to keep a sense of myself as I'm raising my family and the extra money is helpful since we live in such a high COLA.

    Most looking forward to:
    Seeing DH raise his son. He is going to be such a great dad and he can't wait to pass along so many ideas and fun times to his little boy.

    Most dreading:
    Not knowing anything about boys! I was raised in an all girl family and have zero knowledge of little boys and especially the dreaded adolescent years.

    3 weeks and 6 days

    Well, this is my 3rd but I love how my oldest is with both of his brothers.

    Having 2 kids under the age of 1 and 1 of them almost to the walking stage. I probably only get 2-3 hours of sleep a day because when Alexander naps during the day James is awake and vice versa. Alexander is still cluster feeding at night so try to sleep between but sometimes 20 min of slep is worse than none at all it seems.

    FF.

    Right now because Alexander only sleeps in my arms I will have to say a baby sling. If it wasn't for it I wouldnt be able to get anything done.

    As of right now Im staying home.

    My irish twins interacting and playing with each other. James is not fond of his little brother at this time.

    Actuallly the same thing Im looking forward to. I know they will team up and go at their older siblings. While Im sure it will be funny I know there will be many fights because of it because the older 2 will be teens or close to it by the time that happens.
