Today marked the first official afternoon that I was alone with my two lil' cowboys. My mom came home from the hospital with us last Thursday and stayed for a week. It was great to have her around and I guarantee my laundry has never had such a quick turnaround. Kallahan has seriously worn the same nightgown every night since he came home! She helped me through all the emotions that I was feeling, mainly feeling overwhelmed with a new baby, working from home and with a three-year-old that is taking time to adjust to all the changes. She helped me realize that I will need more help than I initially intended. Thank heavens for Granny that has offered to take the boys as often as I need her to so that I can stay caught up on work.
But even though we had a few rough patches today – mommy getting emotional when Grandma left & Keeler not eating dinner well to name a few – we did great! I just love my little cowboys and know that I will get spoiled getting to spend so much time with them during my maternity leave. I just want these next ten weeks to go by slow so that I can appreciate every minute. I already love living at a slower pace and getting to do things that I normally miss out on. I started editing some of the first week pics this evening. Check out some of my favorites of my cowboys!
