so far

so far, I have failed at blogging. I keep telling myself that I will get a whole bunch of pictures on here, and then I will write. obviously that is not going to happen. So today I'm just going to talk about today. I just survived a doctor's appointment with 2 kids, and now they are both miraculously sleeping. Don't worry I am not foolish enough to believe it will last. I'm sure Frannie will be awake soon. We had a girl, and we named her Frannie. Really, Frances Kate- but we're big on nicknames around here. Some time I will put pictures of her on here, and talk about how she got here. It is all going by so fast. She's already 6.5 weeks old, and growing like a weed. She smiles all the time, and it is so amazing. In another month I have to go back to work, and am trying not to think about how much I will miss her.
so today...
Tripp was up all night coughing. I got roughly 3 hours of sleep, and not in a row. I have plenty of energy today- but it will hit me tomorrow. MAN- it is hard keeping up with 2 kids, but just having one is already a distant memory. I can barely remember life without Tripp and Frannie... too bad I wasn't blogging back then. Ha. Tripp is growing so, so fast. Having a new little baby makes him seem like a giant in comparison. He is speaking so well, putting several words together, using verbs and personal pronouns ("my baby" when he's not calling her Bannie- we're still working on the letter F). He had to get a shot at the doctor today, and took it like a champ. He cried for roughly 45 seconds. One of the worst parts of being a mom is holding your baby down so somebody can give him a shot. Well, so far. I'm sure things will get worse, and better, and I can't wait.

Lord, give me the strength and patience to be a good Mama.
