One Month Down

So little Miss Emily is over one month old...can you believe it??? She is getting bigger by the second. Things seem to be finally settling down. I feel like I can finally breathe at least. It was harder than I expected...getting used to a newborn again. The lack of sleep, the constant crying, the poopy all over you, the spitting up. It hasn't been that long since Audrey was a newborn but it has been an adjustment none the less. Everyone told me when I got pregnant with Audrey that having four kids was a piece of cake. That three kids was hard and after that it was all down hill. HAH!!! Four was not as hard as I thought. But... Five... Five is HARD. Is it because I am older? Is it because I have four kids under the age of six and one almost-10 year old-Hannah Montana-loving tween? Is it because I have three kids in school that I have to run all over creation? I don't seem to have an answer but if someone can tell me how to keep my head on straight and not forget where I left the baby, I would appreciate it.

Yes, I lost my baby yesterday. I have to admit my house is a lot bigger than my old one, but loosing a baby shouldn't happen in a house of any size. I couldn't remember where I had put her down. I looked everywhere it seemed, in her cradle, in her swing, in the bouncy seat, in the moses basket. (Yes, there are that many places to leave a baby). Finally, after running all over the house, Audrey found her. Little Emily was in the formal living room, snoozing happily where I had left her. I have heard that around six months after giving birth your brain begins to get back to normal and your memory actually works better than ever before...I hope this is true. Otherwise my poor baby may end up in the lost and found at church.

I know exactly what you mean! The other day I asked Lars where Joshua was, and he calmly said, "He's right here." I looked to see that I, to my astonishment, was holding him in my lap!!! Is that the same syndrome as losing your glasses on top of your head?

By the way, Happy Birthday to all of the March Rogers!

If it makes you feel any better, when Jay and Robin had the third, Robin forgot Anthony one day and started driving off without him. It will make a great party story. Ha ha!
