It has been a while since I participated in the currently link up. It is one I have missed so I am going to try and get back into it again.

The last couple of weeks have been crazy for us. With a new baby and trying to finalize buying a house with the addition of trying to do some activities with my mom and the kids while she visits I feel like I am falling more and more behind with work. I am not that far behind… but not as caught up as I would like to be. I am behind on my reading for my first couple of weeks of my Masters degree… but I will get caught up on that. I hope.

Little Sophie is now 11 days old and I have lost most of the baby weight. I only have about 6 or 8 more pounds to loose to be at where I was when I got pregnant with her. This means that I am still wearing my maternity pants, but they are quickly becoming too big and my pre-pregnancy clothes are still too small. Luckily my neighbours bought me a gift card for H&M as a birthing gift. Very sweet of them! I hate to buy clothes right now, as I know my shape will change some more… but I don’t really want to be wearing saggy pants either.

We have been busy making plans for the new house, which is still not ours yet. Hoping to have that finalized next week. Then we will go into full planning mode!

There have been lots of smiles at our house. How can you not smile looking at this:


However whenever we add a new family there is always a period of learning. I am sure this is going to take a while to figure out a rythmn as we figure out how to be a family of 6 nows. Crazy! 6!
