These days, life has been CRAZY! I love my babies, but the adjustment to have 2 kids was so much harder than I expected. Mckenzie has had some issues with nursing and without going into all the details I have had to spend a great deal of time with either my sweet girl attached to me or hooked up to a breast pump. So, I have had to learn to let things go. My house is dirtier than it's ever been, Addie's hair doesn't get done very much. My car is a disaster with toys and trash strewn throughout. I haven't blogged in almost 3 months. I finally downloaded pictures from my camera (the last download was 9/19). I'm lucky if I get a shower everyday and brush my teeth. Shaving my legs is a thing of the past. I never got a birth announcement out for Mckenzie and still haven't written my thank you cards for all the gifts I received (i know that's bad). And finally, when signing up for the potluck at Addie's preschool instead of signing up for some cool dessert I could whip up or some delicious specialty, salad or side dish like all the other moms, I signed up for CHIPS. I was the only one who took the easy route. But, my item was the only one completely gone with none to bring home. CHIPS describes my life these days. :)

Here are a few photos of the craziness and fun we've had with our sweet, sweet Mckenzie and big sis Addie.

Addie says "Mommy, I want to pump my boobies too!" There has been a lot of pumping going on around here.

Um...let me be the first to tell you that it's all ok! You're children are loved and happy and that's what matters! Just for the record, I've never seen Addie looking less than perfect at church!

You are doing great! You have let the things that don't really matter go by the way side for a bit so you can take of the things that matter most. Keep your chin up girl. You are loved more than you know. Don't get discouraged...yes I know it is hard... It is always easy to see what you are NOT doing but if I know you, you are doing great and doing it with a smile!

Love You!
Angie and all

Congrats on lit sweetie McKenzie! Hey, I am impressed that you actually signed up to BRING something to Addie's class! I wish I was nearby so I could help you out. Oh, and don't feel bad about having a messy car or house...there was just an aricle in "Diabetes Forecast" about the relationship between cleanliness and type i diabetes. I posted the article on my blog...check it out so you can say that you are not being messy, you are preventing your children from having diabetes. :)
