Updates From Home!

We're home. :) Home is a lovely place.

It's also a place that can go from perfectly clean to complete disarray in about 2.0 seconds with little ones running around. I'm looking around my living room and thinking, "The first person who asks if we're ready for visitors is going to hear...'No. Never.'" Haha.

I plan to share Reagan's birth story soon, but I'm too wiped to do it today. Several people have commented on how quickly it seems that I pushed during labor to have Reagan. Well...that's because there's a whole missing part of the story that was never documented last Friday. The time between 5:45-5:58pm was quite interesting, to say the least.

My feet are doing crazy things at the moment. My ankles look like softballs and my toes are like sausages. I never swell during pregnancy - something my doctors always comment on. So I'm quite surprised by this new phenomenon taking place after the fact. Dr. Google tells me this is normal, so I'm not freaking out about it yet. :)

The girls are doing great. They were ready to come home and they love their little brother...maybe a little too much. As predicted, Grace is having the hardest transition, but she's doing better than I expected. No one else's routine is disrupted as much as hers - especially at bed time. It's hard to give up the position of "baby" of the family.

Many of you are friends of mine on Facebook, but some of you are not, so I'm sure you've been wondering where the rest of the pictures are. Once again, we've put together a slideshow of our baby's birthday. Many of these pictures are the ones we've shared with friends and family, but we managed to sneak in a few more as well. It makes us Robert girls cry, and it makes Eric snicker at us Robert girls, so there ya go. :) Hope you enjoy it for today and will extend a little grace as we try to get our lives together and help our kids find a new normal around here. If you ask me, it feels like the little guy has been here all along!

I don't think I've mentioned yet how much I love this baby. I mean...I'm floored. Head over heels. I can't stop looking at him. I'm like a stalker...a baby stalker...of my own baby. I'm sure I'll blab all about it another time, but seriously...this SON thing is awesome so far!
