Wow - what a day!!! Okay, so my oldest sister, Kimberly's baby arrived this afternoon at around 4 pm. They named him Matthew (to complete the family; they already have Mary, Luke, and John) and he was 6 lbs. 1 oz. and 19 1/2 inches long. Everyone is doing great - the biggest bummer from her labor story was that they had to try 6 times to get her epidural in!!!! At least it worked though, and Matthew and Kim are both doing great!!!
I, on the other hand, am worn out!! I feel like David's been gone a week and it's only been 1 day!! Everyone's comments are hilarious to me - sounding like I've got it all together!!! You all are WRONG!! :) Workout was great this morning, swimming lessons were a big hit (except Jacob was NOT happy that he didn't get to swim too), and then things sort of went down hill. Callie didn't get her nice long nap because of swimming lessons, so she wasn't really happy to be woken up to get her picture taken later that afternoon. (I know, it was crazy to schedule a picture appointment for the kids the first day that David's gone). Anyways, we just fell behind our schedule and never quite got caught up. We did make it to the pool to swim this afternoon and then got caught up with all the "The Baby is Here" phone calls, so dinner and bedtime was a little later than it should be. Oh well - tomorrow should be slightly calmer. The only thing broken tonight was a wooden spoon (not from spanking but from the boys' sword fight). Again, I'll count that as a victory!!!
