9:00 I'm so tired Beck is awake.

8:10 Jeff has fed the kids and kisses me as he goes to work...I still sleep. Ehre is on spring break and being a perfect helper
8:45 I get up and send Ben to preschool
9:00 Beck is still sleeping?!!
10:00 Beck nurses
12:30 nursing again then sleeps, the kids and I set a 2' resting timer.
2:00 nursing..... and the day continues on.
2:30 Beck sleeps and the kids are building a fort...happily!

I forgot, babies are alot of work but worth it.

I should add, anytime Beck is within eyesight Elise is trying to pat him, rub his head and give him kisses ( atleast 5 at a time!) The other kids adore him but are great at letting him rest.

... I can't believe that I have 4 angels in my house!
