I survived

Yesterday was Ryan's first day back to work. I was really nervous being home alone for 13 hours with a new baby who had to eat every 2-3 hours, Brooklynn who was sick and needed lots of attention and myself who also have been feeling sick with a head cold. But I did it.


Ryan helped out so much, he would read stories with Brooklynn.


Ry holding Cameron and playing video games with him. (of course, he love the XBOX)

Ryan also helped clean too. Well I survived with out him. I went to the store, cleaned my house, Took Cameron's pictures and even took Brooklynn to a Halloween carnival. We had a good day. Now we will see how next week goes. Ryan is planning on working 4 12 hour shifts in a row. It might not go as well but we shall see.

This is the pictures I took of Cameron. But I still haven't made the birth announcements yet. Maybe next week.

What cute pics! I always hate when Chris goes back to work, it's always such an anxiety issue, You know you can do it but you just want them there! But good for you, I think you'll do great next week. It just takes time and pacing yourselves!!

Rachel, I am definately not super mom. (I had to stay busy so we didn't go insane). Also, Jenny I use to work at Kiddie Kandids years ago, so I love taking pictures.

cute pictures Dani! I'm sorry you guys have been sick. I hope it gets better soon. You are super mom if you did all that in one day. I just stayed home forever after having Gracie. We would be lucky to make it to one or two places. I loved just being home with her. I'm sure it's different with Brooklynn though. She's got lots of energy and probably would like to get out once in awhile.

So scary to be at home alone the first time with two...I hated it, but now I think, "what was I afraid of." You will be an old pro before you know it. Great pictures!
