Settling In

I think we are starting to get into some routine. In the last couple days T has taken to being awake most of the day. This is nice for the fact that it means she sleeps better at night, but not good for the fact that sometimes I would like to get things done and she does not like to be put down when awake. Hmmmm. As I remember, P was a lot like this, and didn't nap much during the day.

So far though she has been sleeping still in 3 hour stretches at night, so not too bad. I've forced EZ to sleep in another room with the monitor so I can sleep more since I can't sleep through her tiny peeps. This has worked well for me, probably not worked so well for EZ.

She seems to be filling out a tiny bit, just in her face alone which is good. And we can finally fit into newborn clothes pretty well. :) Most days though, I just have her in a gown or in pj's. 

Dealing with both kids at the same time can be tough (especially if T is awake). I've attempted the park a few times with both of them and with T is screaming in her carseat and I have to watch/help P up some stairs or something, is when it gets tough, so T just has to cry more. But I like being able to spend time with P and make her feel like I'm still around enough to play with her and do all the things we use to do.

I decided to go for a run the other day and felt good enough to run a mile (in 10 min)! I did it again on Tuesday and hope to go out again in a little bit for another mile. I'm doing some back exercises and trying to do a little basic core work without sit ups so try and help out with the back pain and things are better. My goal is to run a 5K June 9th that is being put on by one of our neighbor for their daughter who has Cystic Fibrosis. I'm pretty sure I'll be able to run the 5K, but how fast is another story!

Here are a few more pictures from last week:

Glad to hear Tatum is doing well. Have you tried putting her in a sling or wrap to have your hands free to do things with Piper since she doesn't like to be put down during the day?

Nice pics! I especially like the one with you, your sister, your grandma, and the girls.
