2 kidlets

I said I would update you, and so here goes:

Life with two isn't as hard in some respects as I thought and is much harder in others.

I am not having an issue balancing the physical care of two children (food, clothes, etc) but I am having a hard time balancing Cole's emotional needs with Amelia's need to be in my arms 99% of the time. It is difficult to spend the needed time with Cole and therefore he's acting out. I sometimes am a bit overwhelmed at his outbursts and instead of setting Amelia down, and picking Cole up, I just get mad at Cole.

Yesterday was a particularly difficult day with Cole and this morning instead of going back to sleep after Amelia's early (5:30 am) feeding, I decided to stay up. I read my Bible, took some time to pray, and did quite a bit of cleaning. I know in my head that I need that time to be alone and get stuff done, but it's just so dang hard to get my booty out of bed.

So, there's the update. Things are mostly good with some hard points-- but doesn't that describe just about everything in life?

Here are a few pictures from the last few weeks. :)
